    Hi, when we moved into our house the shower was already fitted, because the whole head is just fitted to the wall i am not sure of the make / model of it and we need to replace it as a lot of water is dripping down from the bottom of the head like a leak when it is on.

    I have found one that looks like it is it, but i thought i'd see if anyone here could say they think it is or not (as many of you may have seen thousands over your time if you work with the a lot)

    I only need the head that screws on, so what i have found is:

    Aqualisa/Hydramax Spray Cartridge CP (No Arm) 235012

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Aqualisa-Hydramax-Spray-Cartridge-235012/dp/B004SOEWF8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1451688077&sr=8-1keywords=Aqualisa+Hydramax+fixed+head


    Does anyone know if that is the right one, can i get it cheaper anywhere and would it also come with a new shower head seal?

    thanks

    james

    I would try de-scaling it first the scale may be affecting the head pattern, most shower fitting are 1/2 inch BSP with a small rubber washer to seal, so I guess they are pretty interchangeable.

    Are you aware that twisting the ring (adjacent to the spray holes) provides different spray patterns? If left 1/2 way between patterns it may well dribble water everywhere.. Forgive me if you are well aware of this but not everyone is so worth a mention.
    As stated, descaling may help or dismantle and clean & reassemble. screwfix do not keep much of a choice so google "fixed shower head" and you will have plenty to choose from. Depending on available flow from shower it may well not be suitable for a head the size of a frying pan so do not let the wife choose your new shower head. The 1/2" nut at the top of the head unscrews from the fixed arm so any head with a 1/2" female thread on top (virtually all of them ) will do

    Yes i know that turning it has different spray patterns, i did leave it in 2 sachets of descaler but it was for about 1 hour in hot water, after i put it back on it was still the same, infact maybe slightly worse as turning the spray part now felt much looser than before.

    do you happen to know how i open this to see inside and maybe clean even better?

    i assumed i would have been best getting a new one, if leaving it in descaler for an hour hasn't given any improvement may it be broke?
