Also to know is, where should a hand held shower be placed?
Hand showers are most effective when mounted on a vertical bar so both the height and the angle of the spray are adjustable. A lower position is ideal for small children, pet washing, and elderly or disabled users who may need to sit when bathing.
Also, how do you take apart a hand held shower head? Hold the shower arm with a pipe wrench and grip the collar nut with a pair of adjustable pliers. Turn the pliers counterclockwise to unscrew the nut. Grip the pivot or swivel ball nut with your pliers and turn it counterclockwise to completely free the shower head from the angled pipe.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you install a handheld shower head for an existing shower?
Wrap the threads of the tub diverter fitting with plumber’s tape, then attach the flexible shower hose to the fitting, and hand-tighten. Mount the slide bar or mounting bracket (for the handheld showerhead) to the wall, following manufacturer’s directions. Turn on the water and check the showerhead unit for leaks.
