How to Swap out a Showerhead (and Delta ShowerHead Giveaway)

I'm going to show you just how easy it is to swap out your takes about 5 minutes!

How often do we take time to be thankful for the small things? Like indoor plumbing and hot water tanks! It wasn't too long ago that our family members had to run outside to use the 'privy' when they had to 'go'! Can you even imagine? We've been making some inexpensive changes to our bathrooms and today I'm sharing how easy it is to swap your showerhead!

You're also going to have a chance to win a brand new Delta In2ition Showerhead at the end of this post. So stay with me, ok?

We've been working our way through our bathrooms and making some simple, inexpensive updates and upgrades! Like our mini budget bathroom makeover that I shared last week.

Now we're working on the 'kids bathroom' upstairs. Our plans for this space include paint, new flooring, industrial-style shower rod, decor updates and a new, money-saving showerhead.

We are using the Delta In2ition Showerhead with H20Kinetic Technology. What does that mean?

 The In2ition® combines the soothing comfort of a showerhead with the convenience of a handheld shower, bringing ultimate flexibility to the bath. Available with optional H2Okinetic™ technology, which controls the speed, movement and droplet size of the water exiting the showerhead, the In2ition shower delivers the feeling of more water without actually using more water
Did you get that? You can control the size of the water droplets to save money while you shower (or while your teenagers take their endless showers!) The bottom line is an attractive, affordable showerhead that delivers an amazing shower experience while saving you money! The Delta In2ition Showerhead is available exclusively at Home Depot.

If you've ever hesitated about changing out your showerhead because you thought you needed to call on the services of a plumber, stop right there! It is so easy to swap out your showerhead, it almost doesn't warrant an entire blog post!

HOW TO SWAP OUT YOUR SHOWERHEAD (in about 5 minutes!)

Remove the showerhead components from the box.The main head has knobs to set the various spray modes and to let you choose between the showerhead only, showerhead and hand shower or hand shower only.

But let's attach it first!


Remove the old shower head. It's just a simple twist!

Screw on the new shower head.

The last step is to connect the hose at both ends. Mr DIY helped me with this project, but after seeing how easy it was, I know this is a job I can totally do myself (you know, for next time!).

And that is it! Hang it up and enjoy!

  1. I would LOVE to do change out my shower heads and switch to a metal other than the ugly contractor's grade old shiny brass from the 1980's. I changed out all the faucets, door knobs, hinges, etc but the showers are intimidating. Any suggestions to change out the shower fixtures without tearing out the whole wall?

    1. Thanks so much Kerry! If the piece sticking out from the wall doesn't match the new showerhead,i would try painting it. User a spray paint that's for outdoors and cover the wall around it. Good luck.

    2. Brilliant! Of course! I got my Monday "duh" moment out of the way.... thanks for that. I painted my fireplace several years ago. Not sure why I didn't think of painting my shower plumbing. I'm doing this! Thanks Cindy. Have an amazing day.

  2. BTW... thank you for all your posts. I always look forward to seeing what you're up to in your "nest". Such great ideas. Blessings & Hugs to you...

  3. Didn't know before, Swapping out the shower heads was this easy.
    Thanks for the great info :)

  4. Just installed a new dual shower head and was much easier than I thought. the project took me 15-20 minutes to remove and replace the new one!

    1. Hey Sym, I'm so glad you found it easy! Thanks for letting me know!

  5. Nice guide, Cindy! It's not so hard as may seem at first glance :)
