Lakewood Plumbers Experienced in All Bathroom Plumbing Services

Bathroom plumbing may require professional assistance if there are any difficult procedures to be carried out. However, such small tasks as shower head installation can be undertaken by the Lakewood homeowner itself. The removal of an old and worn out shower head and the installation of a new one is among the easiest bathroom plumbing tasks that you can perform.

You will not require any special tools for this project and you can easily find shower heads that meet the requirements of your shower. In case the installation is not carried out perfectly, the shower will leak, but that’s the worst that could happen and leave your bathtub and show-er wet, making it a fairly harmless endeavor that anyone can undertake. However, if you are uncomfortable performing any bathroom plumbing service, call us at Golden West and we'd be happy to assist.

What's Required to Perform a Shower Head Installation Denver Plumbing

When installing a new shower head, you will require pliers or a wrench along with Teflon tape. A pipe wrench may also be required if your existing shower head has been used for a very long time. Since the older fixture may have developed lime buildup, rust or oxidation, it may be difficult to remove it.

If it doesn’t unscrew with ease, the wrenches/pliers will have to be used and equal pressure must be applied to each side of the shower head until it begins to move and unscrew. Make sure that excessive force isn’t applied as it may result in breakage of the old shower head. You can then clean the stem pipe and prepare it for the installation of a new shower head.

How to Install Your New Shower Head

You can easily screw the shower head in its place using a screwdriver. Teflon tape must be applied to each threaded connection to ensure that it is tightly sealed. Once this is done, test the shower for a few minutes and make sure that there is no loose connection and you’re new shower will be ready for use.
