Had no problems.(only did it once,though.)
I used one of those $5 low-flow heads that output a narrow cone of water.
The entire shower head is only maybe an inch in diameter,it came with a
rubber gasket to seal against the pipe.You can hand-tighten it and no
leaks.Or did you mean the original head? I torqued that back down pretty
I actually bought it in Beaverton,Oregon,at one of the local big-box
stores,along with a low cost channellock pliers,while out there for a 2
week training class. And well worth it.
The water conservation issue is a hoax. First, there is plenty of
water in the world. Second, more is being made every day as a result of
fossil fuel combustion. Third, using water in toilets and laundry
machines doesn't destroy it. Fourth, by putting water in your septic
system or sewer, you are returning it to nature. Evaporation, cloud
formation, precipitation, collection and use continue the cycle.
I typically use 10,000 gal per quarter at $3.00 per 1000 gal. $30 per
quarter. Conservation might cut this to $20 if I'm really lucky.
My guess is the fuel required to *heat* wasted hot water far outstrips
the cost of the water itself.
