Updating old shower fixtures

Today, we are going to show you how to replace an old tub-and-shower valve.First step is going to be removing the actual shower head.

You have no obligation to purchase the product once you know the price. And I knew I could take 20 years off the bathroom’s appearance just by re-caulking.If you have a similar situation in your house, you can give your whole bathroom a facelift in just three easy steps: I’ll break it down for you in a little more detail now so you can really see the process.You are going to use a pair of mini-channel locks to remove the shower head in a counterclockwise motion.You are going to use the same mini-channel locks to remove the shower arm in a counterclockwise motion.Each faucet is different and can add more character to your bathroom.

Our price is lower than the manufacturer's "minimum advertised price." As a result, we cannot show you the price in catalog or the product page.

The options for redesigning an old fixture are almost limitless if you like the overall design of your current one.

As far as I know, all of the bathrooms in our new house are original to the house, which was built in 1991.

Use the sharp side of the double-headed caulk tool to scrape out the old, icky caulk.

It can be stubborn in spots, but you just scrape away and pull the strings off with your hands (or needlenose pliers).

Simply swap out the tired old trim with the shiny new Chrome trim, and make your shower look brand-new for a fraction of the cost of a whole new faucet. Harsh cleaners can ruin once-lovely acrylic handles, making them brittle. Replace the trim, and have your shower look like new in a matter of minutes!
