Table Of Contents:


Refreshing your shower setup can be as simple as changing the shower hose – a quick update that can significantly enhance your showering experience. Whether your current hose is leaking, has become clogged with mineral deposits, or you're just looking to upgrade your bathroom's aesthetic, replacing a shower hose is a straightforward task you can accomplish on your own.

At Tapron UK, we offer a wide selection of high-quality shower hoses that cater to various styles and needs. Follow this step-by-step guide to change your shower hose like a pro.

Tools and Materials You Will Need:

  • New Shower Hose from Tapron UK
  • Adjustable Wrench (if needed)
  • Teflon Tape (optional for extra sealant)
  • Cloth to protect your fixtures and clean up

Step 1: Choose Your New Shower Hose

Start by selecting a new shower hose that matches your shower's design and meets your functional requirements. Tapron UK’s extensive range includes various lengths, finishes, and styles to complement any bathroom decor. Consider a hose with anti-twist features or one that's specifically designed for high water pressure, depending on your needs.

Step 2: Turn Off the Water Supply

While changing the shower hose doesn't typically require turning off the main water supply, it's a good practice to shut off any local valves to your shower to avoid any unexpected water discharge during the process.

Step 3: Remove the Old Shower Hose

Unscrew the old shower hose from the showerhead and the water outlet. You can usually do this by hand, but if the connections are tight, use an adjustable wrench. Wrap a cloth around the nut to protect the finish of your fixtures while you loosen them.

Step 4: Clean the Threads

Once the old hose is removed, use this opportunity to clean the threads on both the showerhead and water outlet. Removing any buildup of mineral deposits or old sealant will ensure a clean connection for your new hose.

Step 5: Attach Your New Shower Hose

Before attaching the new hose, consider wrapping the threads on the water outlet and showerhead with Teflon tape. This step is optional but can help create a more secure seal, preventing leaks. Screw in your new shower hose by hand, first to the showerhead and then to the water outlet. Ensure a snug fit but be careful not to overtighten, as this could damage the threads or the hose itself.

Turn the water supply back on and test your new shower hose for any leaks. A good practice is to run the water through all temperature settings. If you notice any drips, gently tighten the connections a bit more.

Step 7: Enjoy Your Upgraded Shower

With your new shower hose installed, you're ready to enjoy an enhanced showering experience. A fresh hose not only improves the functionality of your shower but can also contribute to the overall aesthetic of your bathroom.


Changing a shower hose is an easy and effective way to upgrade your bathroom without the need for extensive renovations. By following these simple steps, you can ensure a successful installation and enjoy the benefits of your new shower setup. Explore Tapron UK’s selection of shower hoses to find the perfect match for your bathroom and elevate your daily shower experience.
