Replace a Hand-Held Shower Head

Edited by Grimm, Inukshuk, Anonymous

Hi, you're watching VisiHow. Earlier, we showed you how to change a broken shower hose. Now what we're going to do is change a low-pressure shower head or nozzle. We're going to change it for a new shiny beautiful shower head.

Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing you're going to need to do is get your shoes.
    Rubber bottom shoes! I love my Sketchers. They keep me from falling on my head. I don't want to fall on my head; you don't want me to fall on my head, although it probably would make for a funny video.

    What we have here is a shower head still in the plastic wrap, let's just pull that out.
    Spend some time popping the bubble-wrap if you want.

    What we're going to do is take the screw piece off the bottom like the other one before, we are not going to throw it away.

    We should actually be able to pull this on and off.

    Sounds like we could make some music with this one, hopefully that little rattle is not going to be a problem for us.
    What we're going to do now is pull off the old head.

    I'm just showing you with both hands, because as I've mentioned before, you can hand-tighten this stuff.
    This is not something where it's a scientific necessity or a nuclear power reactor where you to have it exactly right.

    This one's actually even plastic - you notice the old one is metal - it's probably cheap metal, but it's still metal - but the new one is plastic, so it's just another reason not to tighten it too hard, or else you are going to break it.
    It is nice and clean though, I wish the rest of the bathroom could stay this clean.

    There we are, now we have the new head in the bracket.
    I do see a problem that it doesn't turn, but that's OK.

    Let's give the water a try, and see how the pressure is now.

    Not exactly what I would call fantastic, but let's switch it to other settings.

    That seems better than it was before.
    We've at least got a wider range of spray. So this is how you change out your older not-so-awesome shower head, for a shiny new shower head with a switch selector.
