I change the shower head and hose
The user&# 039; s job to change a shower head and a flexible
Because the pipe is leaking or because I just wanted a new generation of luxury shower, I sometimes need to change the equipment in my bathtub or a shower. And replace the showerhead and hose is within the reach of all. Especially if you follow the instructions of a professor of shock, Claire Barer, blogger of Life triplets.
Step 1 - I gather all the necessary materials
I need little to transform my shower worthy of a spa cabin! I am obviously a team pommel once selected according to specific criteria such as different types of jets. The most classic is the rain shower but I can also opt for a massage jet or mist. A multi-jet shower head is guaranteed to satisfy the expectations of the whole family! I accompany course of a flexible (note length!) With a pliers or a wrench. And that's all !
Step 2 - I unscrewed the old flexible
No need for that little action to cut the water supply; I begin by unscrewing the hose to the tap. For this, I have two options: the spanner if I have one on hand or pliers, most common, and especially more convenient because with its claws, she loosens hose without damaging it. I end by unscrewing by hand, always in the direction of clockwise.
Step 3 - I collect the gasket
I also want to check the status of the joint at the end of flexible and change it if necessary. Good to know: when the seal is black is that it is rubber! It is this type of seal suitable for sealing my shower.
Step 4 - I prepare the pommel
At one end of my head, I'll screw the hose. But I do not forget before that, there also add a seal to prevent leakage.
Step 5 - I screwed pommel
My brand new shower head can now be screwed without fear! I begin with the screw by hand.
Step 6 - I finished screwing with my tool
I then use my pliers or my key to continue to tighten without forcing.
Step 7 - I screwed the hose to the tap
I'm almost done ! After screwing the knob to the hose, it is still necessary that I connect the hose to the shower valve. You remember, I slipped inside a gasket in good condition. It therefore remains for me to screw!
Step 8 - I screwed one last time with my tool
To be sure my cowardly not flexible, I might see one last time firmly but gently to avoid scratching my faucets.
Step 9 - I control installation
To avoid unpleasant surprises, I operate the jet. Everything is fine ? Bravo, the shower is like new! She flees at the faucet or showerhead? Either the seal has not been well - if not forgotten! - either I did not tight enough. Within minutes, I rectify it with confidence.
