I was unhappy with my shower head. The pressure seemed to have changed. I cleaned it. Nothing happened. I decided to by a new one. I talked to Julie who had researched buying one herself. I decided to wait for my visit to her and buy one then. I did. Carrie said it was easy to install and told me it would come with white tape to put around the pipe. She had replaced hers also. I bought it, got home, and found myself inclined to delay installation. Then I decided to take the risk. I opened the package and found no white tape. The instructions said nothing about white tape. I took off the old one, put on the new one (easily) and took a shower. I was happy. I told Carrie my installation did not require the tape. She said, “Things change with progress.”
