When I announced early that I was a Delta Ambassador, I had no idea that my job would be so easy. Installing a shower head is a simple, yet necessary task for every household. This is especially true of you are installing a Delta In2ition shower head. There two-in-one shower system features both a shower head and a handheld shower sprayer. This is great for a busy mom like me! The shower head is quick and easy to install. All you need to do is remove the old one and screw in the new one. Easy Peasy like the instructions below.
How To Install A Shower Head
Replacing a showerhead can be as easy as taking off the old showerhead and screwing on the new one. It is so easy, I detailed it out for you in step-by-step instructions below. Just remember a few tips.
- When removing your old shower head, make sure you do not use too much force. You can damage the plumbing in your walls.
- Use duct tape on the jaws of your pliers to protect the finish of your shower head.
- Don’t wrap the plumbers tape higher than the threads, if you do not want it to show.

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Delta Faucets. I received a product sample and promotional item as a thank you for participating.
