Install a new showerhead
Tired of starting your day with a lackluster shower? Want to upgrade to the invigorating showers you see in magazines or hotels without remodelling your bathroom? Luckily, creating a luxurious shower environment is as easy as 1-2-3. By simply upgrading your shower with a new showerhead, you’ll have the robust experience you’ve always dreamed of for your daily escape in no time at all. Plus, today's modern showerheads are designed to reduce water consumption.
Start creating your new personal shower space by choosing the showerhead that meets your needs and desires. There are two main categories of showerheads to choose from: fixed or handheld. But within these categories is a wealth of options - from rainshowers to multi-setting versions.
Fixed showerheads are permanently mounted to the wall of the shower. Although stationary, these showerheads are far from plain. Multi-setting showerheads allow you to choose the distinct spray setting that suits your mood.
Handheld showerheads are connected to the wall with a flexible hose, allowing a wide range of motion. Ideal for bathing children and cleaning your shower, these showerheads are also a perfect choice for seniors who prefer to sit in the shower. Much like fixed showerheads, there are a number of handheld showerhead options with finishes to add a stylish look to the bathroom.
1. Unscrew the existing showerhead from the shower arm, using a crescent wrench if necessary.
2. Remove any old thread seal tape and apply new by wrapping the tape around the shower arm threads two to three times.
3. By hand, screw the new showerhead onto the shower arm. Use the wrench to tighten the new showerhead. If installing a handheld version, first screw the handheld bracket to the shower arm and tighten with a wrench. Then, attach the hose and handheld shower to the handheld bracket.
Now you’re ready to enjoy your new shower retreat! Grab your favourite body wash and loofah and jump in - you can enjoy the shower of your dreams anytime you wish - all without the cost of a bathroom remodel.
