Installing a rail shower head is a great way to upgrade your bathroom without spending too much money. A rail shower head can provide you with more flexibility when it comes to positioning the shower head in relation to your body. In this blog post, we will discuss how to install a rail shower head in your bathroom. We will provide you with step-by-step instructions, as well as some helpful tips and advice!

 

How to Install a Rail Shower  

1. Gather your supplies

Before you start to install the rail shower, you should gather the supplies first. You need a rail shower head, a drill, and some screws.

 

The rail shower head can be found at hardware stores or online. Make sure to get one that is the right size for your bathroom.

 

Drills can be rented from most hardware stores.

 

Screws should be purchased based on the size of the rail shower head that you have chosen. If you are unsure of what size to get, ask a salesperson at the store for help.

 

2. Choose the location for your shower rail

The next step is to choose the location for your shower rail. It is important to find a spot that is strong enough to support the weight of the rail and shower head.

 

One option is to install the rail on the wall near the ceiling. This will give you more flexibility when it comes to positioning the shower head.

 

Another option is to install the rail on the wall near the floor. This option may be more suitable if you have a small bathroom.

 

If you are unsure of where to install the rail, ask a professional for help.

 

Once you have chosen a location, mark off where you will drill holes for the screws using a pencil or pen. Make sure that these marks are aligned before you start drilling!

3. Drill pilot holes and insert anchors into the wall

Then you can drill pilot holes into the wall according to the location marks. These holes should be slightly smaller than the screws that you will be using.

 

After you have drilled the pilot holes, insert anchors into the wall. These anchors will help to support the weight of the rail and shower head.

 

Once the anchors are in place, screw in the screws until they are tight. Do not overtighten them, as this may damage the wall.

 

Now you can install the rail, and then comes the shower head! Make sure that the rail is securely mounted to the wall. Then, use a wrench to loosen the connection at the base of the shower head. Next, slide the shower head onto the rail and hand-tighten the connection. Finally, use the wrench to give the connection one last tight turn.

4. Connect the water supply lines to the shower valve

The next step is to connect the water supply lines to the shower valve. You will need to use a wrench to tighten the connection. Make sure that the connection is tight so that there are no leaks.

5. Install the shower valve and escutcheon plate

The next step is to install the shower valve and escutcheon plate. The shower valve controls the flow of water to the shower head. The escutcheon plate is a decorative plate that covers the hole in the wall where the shower valve is installed.

 

To install the shower valve, you will need to insert it into the hole in the wall. Once it is in place, you can screw it into place using screws or bolts. Depending on your model of shower valve, you may need to use a wrench to tighten everything in place. Once the shower valve is installed, you can install the escutcheon plate. To do this, simply align it over the hole in the wall and screw it into place.

 

 

Now, you can turn on the water and test out your new rail shower! If everything is working properly, you can enjoy your upgraded bathroom! Thanks for reading!
