A loose pipe in the wall might cause a shaky shower head, but it’s easy to fix. You’ll need a screwdriver to pry the shower head trim ring away from the wall and expose the pipe’s base and the hole below.
Using the straw that comes with the can, spray a little bit of expanding foam like GREAT STUFF Foam Sealant into the hole, not into the pipe.
The foam expands and hardens around the outside of the pipe, preventing it from moving. Remove the trim ring, tighten the shower head, and then relax and enjoy the new, more forceful spray.
