Most shower heads are 1/2" NPT female thread; unscrew the old one from the shower arm pipe, put some pipe dope and/or teflon tape (about 3-4 complete wraps of the pipe) on the male threads, screw on new shower head, and Bob's your uncle. Might want to run the shower for a few seconds after taking off old shower head and before new one is installed to flush out any crap that might clog your new shower head.

Well that covers the shower head...........As far as the valve, I'm not familiar with Pegasus. Is the pipe copper, PEX, or what?
