    I'm (obviously) a beginner to plumbing so I apologize if this seems ridiculous. I have an Interbath Ondine handheld shower head. From the research I've done it seems to be the Adlon line of...shower products. I'd like to remove this and install a normal shower head because it's leaking from the mount and I'd also just like a normal shower head. From looking at the mount, which seems to be called a designer supply elbow, I cannot see any way to remove it. I've searched for a manual and cannot find anything online. Any help or a link to a manual would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    You have something that looks like this right?

    Shove a screw driver inside the bottom and turn counter clockwise is one way of removing it....

    You grab it with a wrench and unscrew it. If the pipe in the wall does not remove with it, then do the same thing to it. THen install a conventional shower arm and shower head of your choice.

    Like this. But I hold the screwdriver right where it meets the inlet.

    Counter clockwise out.
