Many people prefer to replace the old standard fixed showerhead with a handheld one for easier use. If you have never tackled this easy home repair, here are a few tips:
1) To prevent leaks, apply silicone plumber’s tape around the threads before installing.
2) Wrap the tape to the right, so when it is tightened you won’t pull the tape loose.
3) Put several pieces of electrical tape or duct tape over the jaws of your pliers before tightening to avoid damaging the chrome finish.
