Trying to find replacement shower arm

Postby Pip10 » Wed Jan 06, 2021 6:46 pm

I removed my current shower arm which has 4 screws securing it to the wall. This pipe is 120mm with no thread it just pushed into the current arm. I wish to replace the arm but cannot find anything that fits. Is the pipe shown in the picture meant to unscrew?

Thanks in advance

Hi pip10
Suggest you try removing the plastic collar to expose whatever is underneath. Grip the plastic and turn clockwise (as you look at the end) to minimise the risk of undoing a joint which may be deep in the wall.

Sorry for the delay, thanks. I have managed to un glue that collar but cannot get it off the pipe, if we turn it, it stays same place and it try and pull it off it feels like pulling the pipe with it

Thanks again for the help!

Hi pip10
You could try cutting along the plastic parallel with the pipe and outwards across the collar. You don’t need to cut all the way through, just enough so you can split the plastic with a screwdriver.
