Your shower hose is an important part of your plumbing, but it’s often overlooked until you realize it’s time to replace it, which can be difficult to do if you don’t have the right tools or the right instructions. Fortunately, replacing a shower hose is an
Easy process that only takes 3 simple steps to complete
Step 1 – Prepare for Replacement
Before you try and replace the shower head, you should make sure that you have all the necessary tools. You’ll need pliers or a wrench to unscrew the old shower head, silicone sealant, and of course your new shower head. Make sure that your new shower head is compatible with your current duschslang hållare system before proceeding!
The next step is disconnecting the old hose from the pipe coming out of the wall. If this seems difficult for any reason, use pliers or a wrench. Be sure not to twist it too much when loosening it up.
Step 2 – Disconnect Old Hose
To disconnect your old hose, hold it down and twist it counterclockwise until it breaks away from the spigot. The quick and effortless method is perfect for replacing shower hoses on older models of shower heads.
If you’re using a newer model that doesn’t require twisting off the hose, loosen the hose by pressing down on its base. Remember to keep water flowing while you loosen it so that the pipe won’t get too hot or become damaged. After loosening, take apart the bottom half by pulling off any fasteners holding it together. Lastly, slide off the long threaded nut near the water supply valve; this will allow you to unscrew and remove everything from one end of your shower head completely.
Step 3 – Fit New Hose
Check that the end of the shower hose is securely fastened to the pump and there’s no leakage. If you’re lucky, you may even find that your new hose comes with its own duschslang 4 meter. If not, use some Teflon tape to secure it tightly onto the end of your shower head. Now secure it tightly onto the pump as well – this will ensure it doesn’t leak later on.
For those who have a long shower hose, now attach one end to the tap, and then do up any nearby screws or clips as needed. Then put your other hand over the top of it and pull firmly on both ends until you hear an audible click sound from somewhere inside the connector system.
