Ceiling Mount Shower Head Installation Instructions
Step 1: Take Out the Old Shower Head You can easily remove it by hand, but depending on how long the rain showerhead has been installed, you might need to use an adjustable wrench. Hence, if you find it difficult to remove, rotate the showerhead with an adjustable wrench in a counterclockwise direction to unscrew it.
Step 2: Keep the Shower Arm Clean and In Good Shape After you have removed the head, check the shower arm threads for any debris and old Teflon tape. If you find any, remove it and clean them off thoroughly. It’s best to use a microfiber cloth when cleaning the thread because it removes Teflon tape perfectly and works great to pick up tiny grits. Once you’re done cleaning, check if it is corroded or leaking. For damaged threads, it will be best you replace it entirely so you can have a comfortable shower experience any time.
Step 3: Time to Add New Teflon Tape Since you have removed the old Teflon tape, you have to replace it with new ones. The reason is that this tape helps to protect the shower from leaking after installing the showerhead. Now apply the new Teflon tape about 3-5 turns on the thread and tear the end part. Use your hands to smooth it out to keep it leveled to the thread. Keep in mind that when applying the tape, you should go in a clockwise motion so that it doesn’t come off when you attach the head in the same direction.
Step 4: Connect the Showerhead As said earlier in the tools needed, we’re using the rubber sealing washer that comes with the showerhead. This tool helps to make the showerhead stay watertight and secured on to the thread. Ensure you place it properly before installing it. After that, reconnect the shower head and tighten it down with your hands. You can employ a chair or ladder to make things easier for you.
Step 5: Tighten the Showerhead On To the Thread You will need to get the adjustable wrench handy to tighten down the shower very well. But make sure you wrap the threads with a terry cloth, so it doesn’t damage the finish when tightening the showerhead. Once you have done that, now use the adjustable wrench to tighten down the showerhead. However, don’t over-tight or force it so that it’s easier to remove in the future.
Wall Mount Shower Head Installation Instructions
1. Apply plumber's tape to the threads on both ends of the ends of the shower arm and slide on the decorative escutcheon.
2. Insert the new arm into the fitting in the wall and twist to tighten. Finish tightening with your adjustable wrench. Wrap a dry cloth around the shower arm to protect the finish while tightening with an adjustable wrench.
3. Thread the new showerhead onto the arm and hand-tighten. Hold the shower arm in place with groove joint pliers and finish tightening the shower head with your adjustable wrench. Wrap both in a dry cloth to protect the finish.
4. Before securing the decorative escutcheon, turn on the water supply to make sure that all connections are tight and there is no leaking. If no leaks are detected, continue with the installation. If leakage does occur, use your adjustable wrench to tighten the connections as necessary.
5. Apply a bead if silicone sealant to the back of the escutcheon and press firmly into place against the installation surface. Wipe away any excess sealant with your damp cloth.
Hand Held Shower Installation Instructions
HAND HELD SHOWER
Hand Shower Outlet Installation Complete the outlet pipework ensuring it ends in an appropriate 15mm x 1/2" BSP female thread elbow.
Note: This fitting is not supplied as variations in installations require the selection of a suitable solder or compression fitting. • Install the 'Wall Outlet', thread long male 1/2" BSP into the appropriate female fitting using PTFE tape to give a watertight joint.

Mark the two locating holes, these are 17mm center. • Drill and plug the wall. Use an appropriate masonary drill, but if the wall is plasterboard or a soft building block, use special wall plugs and an appropriate drill bit. • Slide the inserts onto the screws in the orientation.

Shower Body Jets Installation Instructions
Step 5: (Pressure Balancing Loop)
Rough-in Suggestion: This installation requires a 1/2" male threaded pipe fitting to extend 1/4" beyond the finished surface. The plumber should install a properly anchored 1/2" female pipe fitting (i.e. a drop-ear ell) recessed into the wall, into which a brass pipe nipple of proper length can be fitted once the finished wall is complete. Note: The hole size opening should be 1.5" max diameter. Bodyspray placement: Custom shower systems are sized to the user or users. Bodysprays are normally placed at the upper back, middle back, and upper thigh. Always position bodysprays according to the preferences of the user(s).
Pressure Balancing Loop: If installing bodysprays in a bank of 3 or fewer, a pressure balancing loop is not necessary. If installing bodysprays in a bank of 4 or greater, a pressure balancing loop must be used to keep the pressure even between the bodysprays.
