HOW DO YOU REMOVE EXISTING ARM IN ORDER TO INSTALL THE NEW SHOWER ARM
Thank you for your question on the Delta Shower Arm - 16" and I am happy to assist you with this today!
To remove your existing shower arm, you will need to wrap the shower arm with a cloth (to protect the arm), tighten an adjustable wrench around the arm and turn it counterclockwise to remove it from the wall.
To install the new shower arm, you may want to apply a few strips of Teflon tape to the threads on the pipe which will be connected to your in-wall plumbing. Hand tighten the new shower arm in a clockwise motion to tighten while ensuring the arm is flat and screwing in straight or a leak will occur in the wall. Once hand tightened, wrap a cloth around the new pipe and tighten with the adjustable wrench to ensure the connection is secured.
I hope this information is helpful.
