When your showerhead is old, there can be many issues with it. It is not just that it looks bad, it most likely also has a buildup of minerals that are blocking the water flow. It might not have as many features as you would like, since many modern showerheads have options to change the beam and pressure that you get.
So, if you feel like you would like to have a new showerhead, is it going to be very difficult? Not really, but there are a couple of major mistakes that could turn the job into a nightmare.
The first one might seem like a given, but there are many who decided to take on a plumbing job, only to turn it into a major mess by forgetting this – turn off the water supply!
While you might think that just replacing a showerhead shouldn’t require you to do that, it is always a smart step to make sure that a minor mistake doesn’t end up flooding your bathroom.
The second thing is to be careful if anything is rusted stuck. Trying to remove a showerhead that has rusted in place could damage your pipes, so if this is the case, don’t just try with more leverage. Instead, it might be worth it to have the job done by someone who is experienced.
