    STEP 3
    The next step depends on the type of you’ve purchased. If yours is the type that attaches directly to the arm, here’s what to do: Use thread seal tape to wrap the threads at the base of the shower arm, then turn the shower head into position, taking care not to over-tighten. (If using pliers instead of a wrench, protect the finish on the fitting with several layers of cloth or plastic tape.)

  • Homeowners who have purchased a handheld shower head probably do not need to add thread seal tape at the shower arm base (to be certain, however, check the manufacturer’s directions). Here, installation consists only of threading the handheld onto the shower arm, before threading the handheld shower head’s flexible hose onto the bracket.

    The inspector you hired when you bought the house did not catch that? No water coming out of shower head seem a pretty obvious and standard thing to check for.

    I have delta shower system and am not getting any water to the shower head.
    I have taken our the orginal assembly from the valve and replaced it will a new one.
    I have water getting to the valve, but nothing to the shower head.
    My valve does not have any external shut off valves.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    When the shower head is removed is there water going there then?
    Is this something that recently happened?

    • Metal shower heads generally perform better than plastic ones. Look for chrome finishes and brass construction. Ease of adjustment and problem-free longevity justify the added cost of such fixtures.

Showerheads often spray unevenly because their tiny holes have gotten plugged with mineral deposits. In order for water to flow freely, you need to remove these deposits. To do that, you may want to soak the showerhead in vinegar. And that may mean removing the showerhead from the shower arm.
