Installing a new high efficiency shower head is as easy as installing a normal shower head and requires very few tools. The installation is simple and there is more than one way to do it using the different tools. The Fixed and detachable showers with hose is always a first choice of expert designers. Installation can be done in a few steps by the owner and does not require special training. This project should take less than 15 minutes to complete.

Instructions

  • Remove the old shower head before installing the high efficiency shower head. The removal is done by removing the old shower head through the rotation to the left. Initially, the old shower head will have to activate using a channel lock key, Vice pliers or pliers (unless the head is already loose). Regardless of the type of key you do the job, try not to damage the surface of the old shower head since it can be recycled or reused. Teflon tape on the inner surface where the contact key with the pipe can be used to help protect against damage. If the key is adjusted to fit the pipe to prevent slippage, it can also help.

  • Adjust the key. Canal lock keys are made with slots in the head. These grooves are found that the two halves of the key lock in the head. The grooves can be changed for safety device at different levels so that the key can be adjusted. To change the level of interlock, open the key to everything that goes. Then replace the level that the locking slots in before closing the key in the item that turns the tool. If the key is a pipe wrench, the head is adjusted by being extended and retracted. This is achieved by turning a cylinder at the base of the head so that the grooves of this cylinder contact grooves in the top of the head contraction / extension. This allows the head to extend or retract based on the action of screwing or the cylinder. Once the key is in the plumbing, it will need to be tightened again to fit firmly.
  • If a vice grip pair of pliers is used, the easiest way to adjust is to open the fist, turning the screw on the end of the handle until the tool is open more than it is fastened. The tool is then placed around the object (although it is not pressed in the “closed” position). The tool is tightened and then removed. The tool is to tighten more after the removal by two turns so that the tool will lock in place with a click after re-grasping the desired pipe. Turning the screw on the end of the handle until the tool is open more than it was fastened. The tool is then placed around the object (although it is not pressed in the “closed” position). The tool is tightened and then removed. The tool is to tighten more after the removal by two turns so that the tool will lock in place with a click after re-grasping the desired pipe. turning the screw on the end of the handle until the tool is open more than it was fastened. The tool is then placed around the object (although it is not pressed in the “closed” position). The tool is tightened and then removed.

  • Remove the old shower head by holding it in the base (closest to the wall) and turn to the left. After two turns, the head will come out by hand turning the head and the key can be removed. Be careful not to drop your head to avoid damaging your head, shower, floor tiles or an innocent toe. With the head removed, clean the place where the interlocked threads allowed the head of the screw in the exposed tube. Steel wool should remove any of the old Teflon tape remaining in the thread. Once the high efficiency shower head is removed, dry the thread with a cloth and put in the new Teflon tape.

  • Wrap new Teflon tape around the threads cleaned four times. Remove the new shower head from the package. This is a good time to take a quick look at any literature that came with it. Hand tighten the new shower to the pipe with your hands. With Teflon on the wrench pliers that will be used to install the new head, grasp the base of the new high efficiency shower head and tighten it enough that water will not leak (think of waterproof food lids to get an idea of ​​how tight hold the head). If the new boss is made of plastic, be sure not to over tighten or twist it too tight as special care must be taken to ensure that the pieces do not break.
  • Test turning the shower head. Look for any leakage that may be and adjust any Teflon tape as a result of the test. If the head of the shower drips a little, check to see if there is a power switch on the head. This special switch is a feature that allows the flow of the shower to decrease as the person in the shower soaps it up before rinsing. This feature leaks because the pressure that accumulates behind the head can damage pipes downstream of the ignition valves with too fast of a change. Some manufacturers do not include this feature as it is intended to decrease the life of the shower head.
