Shower Heads

There are many different types of shower heads available today.

They pulsate, massage, spray, and trickle, but installation might not be as simple as you think.

Professional help might be needed with installation. Some shower heads can be quickly changed. But, not every shower head will fit on your current fixtures.

Even if the old shower head just needs to be changed to the new one, you can create problems if you do not totally follow the instructions. And, many come with their own hardware, needing to be hooked up to the plumbing system.

It’s always a good idea to consult a local plumber.

Many homeowners buy new shower heads not realizing that all plumbing needs are not the same for every shower head.

Most shower heads today have different sizes and shapes; therefore, you might need to have some piping work done.

If you decide on a dual shower head, plumbing work will be needed to support both heads.

If a high-pressure shower head is your choice, a plumber will need to inspect your current plumbing system to determine if the system will support a high-pressure head.

And, if you have older plumbing, a plumber will need to update the plumbing to support the new shower head.

Do-it-yourself plumbing is not always a wise idea. Installing your own shower heads is an example where doing it yourself might cause some damage and expense. By inadvertently missing a step or two, you could have leaks or not enough water pressure for the new shower head to work properly.

Always be safe and call a professional plumber for the job.
