How to install a handheld shower
Installing your new shower head may sound daunting, but it’s a simple process most people can do themselves. Please follow these five easy steps to install the shower.
1. Remove the Old Shower Head
If should just twist right off like the lid on the jar of peanut butter. Remember, lefty loosey, righty tighty. If you have some calcium preventing this step from going smoothly, you might try soaking your shower head up to the joint in a solution of calcium remover or vinegar.
2. Clean Shower Arm
The threads on the shower arm may have a build up of minerals or old plumbers tape. To remove this, wipe the end of the shower arm with a dry cloth. You can use steel wool to remove stubborn mineral deposits if necessary.
3. Install the Shower Mount
After cleaning the shower arm, twist the shower mount/bracket onto the end of the pipe where the old shower head used to be. The bracket will have two openings. One opening will screw onto the pipe coming from the wall. The other opening will be for the shower hose to twist onto. The shower mount is where you will hang the new, hand held shower head.
4. Attach the Hose.
Connect one end of the shower hose to the shower mount, by twisting one end of the hose connector onto the shower mount. Take the other end of the hose and twist it onto the shower head connection. Once the hose is installed, you may hang the shower head into the shower mount.
5. Adjust the Angle of the Shower Head.
The shower mount swivels so that you can adjust the angle of the shower head. You can adjust the shower head to an angle that suits you. To adjust the angle, you should dock the shower head in the shower mount and then pull on the shower head to change the angle. You can also rotate the shower head to move the shower sideways if required.
