Preparation Your Workspace
Place an old towel in all-time low of the bathtub to stop the porcelain or fiberglass surface area from being scratched while you function.
The adapter kit features a diverter tool that affixes to the shower stem and can route the water in either of two directions (visualized). This enables you to make use of 2 showerheads from a single water resource.
Get rid of the Showerhead
Remove the aged showerhead using modifiable pliers. You may wish to wrap the mandibles of the pliers with tape to prevent them from ruining the chrome. Utilizing a rag (and, if required, some paint thinner) to eliminate any kind of old plumbing professional’s cement or Teflon tape left on the strings of the shower stem.
With the old showerhead got rid of, you can affix the diverter. It’s important to make certain that the generated washer is put in the neck of the diverter according to the directions that have the kit (imagined).
Use Teflon Tape
Use some brand-new Teflon tape to the threads of the shower stem that can help stop water leak (imagined). When using Teflon tape, wrap it in the instructions that the fixture will certainly be tightened. If the tape is wrapped in the opposite direction, it could tear when the component is set up on the threads, and thus will be inefficient at stopping leakages.
Affix the Diverter
With the Teflon tape applied, attach the diverter to the shower stem (imagined), and hand-tighten it. Meticulously tighten up the connection utilizing a wrench if needed, however avoid over tightening this (or any sort of) plumbing system component. Making sure that the proper washing machine is mounted in the neck of the fixed showerhead, connect the head to one neck of the diverter and also tighten it down.
Install the Hose-Extender
With the showerhead set up, use Teflon tape to the various other neck of the diverter (envisioned). Affix the hose-extender attachment– with the hand-held shower add-on– to the cost-free neck of the diverter. An attachment that fastens to the shower stem holds the hand-held add-on when it’s not in use, as well as allows it to be placed as an additional set head.
