My house has a 50 year old shower head coming out of the wall. The
copper pipe coming out of the wall is old, tarnished and ugly - I would
love to replace it. (This is the pipe onto which the shower head
attaches via a thread).
I've given it a tentative twist, but it seems like it's not going to
budge. What I don't know is whether the pipe coming out of the wall is
actually screwed into something, or whether it's welded. Can anyone
Assuming I don't want to destroy the wall, and the pipe is not
screwable, does anyone have any suggestions for cleaning up the ugly
copper pipe to make it at least look presentable? Is there any way to
chrome it in place?
