Stuck shower head
 
Please help,

My shower head is completely stuck. I've tried using WD40 and a boa. I've also tried using an adjustable wrench. Yes, I'm turning counter-clock wise, but it won't budge.

take a pipe wrench and tape the claws(won't scare the supply out of the wall)..thats your hold back.then the channel locks is the CCW force get the wrenchs as close as possibble to the threads shower..set that hold back pipe wrench so it is tight >>> push test CW now that channel locks and jerk it CCW right on that shower head fitting..it should loosen up try to get your knuckle just opposite each other in front of your face..standing in the tub as you grab both .......:thumbsup: if you have 2 pipe wrenchs better for that CCW head fitting
