When ever I can not ID the brand I shut the water off remove it and take it with me when I go to buy the new one so I can match it up in the book.

Thanks. My plumber recommended trying to identify the shower head by researching on the net. Anyone have any good websites that I can upload pictures to that will help in identification?

Most brands have a universal rough-in that is where the pipes are hooked up to inside the wall. The part that you see is called the trim kit. There can be hundreds of different trim kits for the same rough-in. So the key to determining what you have is to first try to see the rough-in.

Can you gain access to behind the wall to look at the pipes? Or can we figure out how to remove the trim kit to see behind. There is probably a set screw on the handle, either under on the handle body or the extreme point is a cap that pops off to expose a screw. Remove the handle and update us on what you see or how far you get.
