Are you looking to replace your shower head but need help figuring out where to start? Donofrio Mechanicals can show you how! Replacing a shower head is an easy task that most people can do on their own. This step-by-step guide will help make the process even easier.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Before beginning, make sure you have all the necessary supplies. You’ll need an adjustable wrench and a screwdriver (Philips or flathead). If your new shower head needs plumber’s tape, grab that too! Depending on the type of shower head you purchase, some additional tools may be required.
Step 2: Remove Your Old Shower Head
First, removing your old shower head from the wall is essential. To do this, use an adjustable wrench to loosen the collar connected to the water pipe coming out of the wall. Once it’s loose, use your hand to unscrew it completely and carefully remove it from the pipe. Once removed, look at what parts are still attached; these will need to be transferred over when installing your new faucet.
Step 3: Install The New Shower Head
Now that your old shower head has been removed, you are ready to install the new one! Start by attaching any pieces transferred over from your old unit (if applicable). Then connect the new shower arm and pipe fitting with a wrench and attach them to the water pipe coming out of the wall. Next, use plumber’s tape around both connections before tightening them down with a wrench for added security. Finally, attach any decorative flanges or escutcheons as needed for extra protection and style points!
