    Default Emergency

    I need a plumber/handy man STAT!

    In my absence today, DH has installed one of those water saving shower heads and I flipping HATE the thing!!!

    He's all proud and impressed with his handy man skills and thriftiness, and I want to rip the stupid thing out of the wall.

    I've turned down houses in the past on the SOLE reason that the shower didn't have decent water pressure.

    Yes, I am that much if a shower snob.

    I have long thick hair and it used to take me 5 minutes to wash it, now if takes me f'n 20.

    Grr I'm livid but don't want to rain on DHs parade anymore then I already have.

    How do I instal a new shower head? And get the current one off?

    Most shower heads just screw on. You would need to make sure you use plumbers tape on the thread before you put the new one on as it is likely to leak otherwise.

    Mum and dad put a water saver in the spare bathroom and we hated it! Dh used to take the plug thing that slows the water down out, then we'd shower, then he'd put it back in again and hey never knew lol

    I like nice strong showers too!

    When we built our house, it came with a lot of energy saving things. One being the shower head! I hated it but I'm used to it now! We just never got round to changing it. But now I'm thinking it should be at the top of the to do list! Lmao !!

    We have one and I threw a giant tantrum when it was first installed! But you do get used to it although I have very fine hair so it's a bit different.

    You should be able to screw it off pretty easily, have a look at the brand/model (should be written on it somewhere) and then google is your friend!

    This!!! Most water saver heads just have a valvy thing inside that slows the water pressure, google should provide some know-how on how to remove it!

    We removed the valve thingy in ours too. DH was so proud when he installed ours (both ensuite and kids bathroom) while he was on leave and I was at work. I had the crappest shower that night but didn't want to rain on his parade. He had a shower the next day while I was at work. He must have thought it was poo too because he spent the mornibg removing the valves while I was at playgroup with the kids. Maybe your hubby will hate it too and remove the valve voluntarily?
