What do you mean? Why do I need it?
Expert:  Plumberpro replied 1 year ago.
I don't get thecvlink between turning a mixer tap into a shower. Are you going to connect the shower choose to the aerator thread on the bath spout?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is nothing in the tap to screw a shower attachment onto. So I thought if i unscrew the aerator I can add an attachment that way?
Expert:  Plumberpro replied 1 year ago.
Hey , why not . its a good idea , as long as the threads match , just use a little off tape . if cthecthreads don't match with the shower hose , take the aerator to you plumbers merchant and see if they can find an adapter
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What's off tape?
What other way could I do it?
Expert:  Plumberpro replied 1 year ago.
Sorry , spell checker strikes again . PTFE tape. Its a sealing tape . wrap it a few times around the threads before screwing in
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry to keep bugging you .....I just need to get this straight in my head.
So all I need is some PTFE tape? And a standard shower attachment?
Put the tap inside the tap where the areator wa
And attach the shower?
Expert:  Plumberpro replied 1 year ago.
No, your shower hose has a threaded connection on the end. Your tap, once the aerator is removed will have a thread. When joining threaded connection to make a water tight seal ( if a rubber washer won't work ) is to use PTFE sealing tape

I just don't really understand what I'm supposed to do now ūüė™. Guess that's why I'm not a plumber
