Troubleshooting - Showerhead

How can I remove old thread tape?

Take your time to gently peel back the tape. This will help most of the sticky residue stay on the tape instead of the piping or fixture. Once the tape is removed, use a wire brush, an old toothbrush and a clean cloth to remove the stubborn bits.

My old showerhead is stuck! What do I do?

If pliers or a wrench doesn't do the trick, you can use a penetrating oil (like WD-40) to help loosen it up!

Where can I get a wrench or pliers?

Go to your local hardware store or buy one online. They should have the tools you need! 

My clamp is stuck and I can’t get it to the right position, what do I do?

Although our clamp was built to prevent leaking, some older pipes require a new layer of teflon tape to secure leaks. Remove your showerhead, then apply a layer of teflon tape over your shower arm. Wrap it in the same direction you’ll spin the clamp so it won’t peel off during installation. Now reinstall the showerhead again.
