Plumbing question

Recommended Posts

I have a delta hand held shower that has a fixed head as well.  It leaks where the head attaches to the flexible hose Sometimes.   It leaks.more at one angle.over others.  I took it apart and there is a washer down in the hose near the end but it looks intact.


If i put plumbers tape on the threads of the shower head would it help or is it something else?

No.  Tape on the threads won't help.

MIne has a round ball and a sealing gasket.
Delta is a name brand, perhaps you can get a gasket kit.

What he said, ^^^^^ but you might need the exact model number. I bought a kit for a Moen faucet going by looks alone and the parts didn’t fit. It took a second try to get the right parts. I had that problem with another faucet as well.

Tape will cause the fitting to crack. They are not very strong.  Look closely for cracks. If you don't find any you might have to replace the hose.

Turns out I do have to replace the hose.  I had bought another set for another shower and hadn't installed it yet,  so after the first 2 replies I took the new hose and installed it and it didn't leak.   I will get a new hose.
