You may need to check the make and type of shower head or faucet to get this right, if you can. You’ll also need a hand puller, enough Teflon Tape, and cartridges.   Using rubber clothes would also be a good idea. Mop and clean the whole shower area, making sure it is totally dry. Of course, tell the rest of your family they cannot use the shower while you are working on it. The most important point is to turn off the water supply to the shower for obvious reasons.
