Hi Workshop Community!
I'm looking at replacing my old shower head with something new!
I'm aware that I'll probably have to drill a few holes into the tiles so that the new head fits.
Has anyone got any tips on drilling into
Apologies for the slow reply. Many Workshop members enjoyed a long weekend (and hopefully got stuck into lots of new projects!)
I assume you were asking for tips about drilling into tiles?
This Bunnings D.I.Y. Advice page How to Drill into Tiles should have everything you need. I'll also embed the video below.
Let us know how you go or if anything is unclear.
What equipment have you got at your disposal at the moment @mattylara027?
Also, check out some of the black tapware available now. Can look fantastic against white tiles. Eg https://www.bunnings.com.au/methven-wels-3-star-9l-min-150mm-black-krome-hi-rise-shower_p5003776
I strongly suggest this water cooled drill bit. I use it often to drill into discarded ceramic coffee cups that my sister inlaw turns into mini flower pots. Prevents over heating and cracking of tiles.
How did you go replacing the shower head? It would be great to see what you have done.
Please let us know if you still need any help with it.
Hi @Jason, ended up just replacing the shower head!
But not with the original plan of putting a rail in.
Here's the finished product.
Not too bad actually! The hardest part was actually unscrewing the original shower head!
After that, it's pretty straight forward.
