I have a leak from the shower head. It appears to be the valve is tight. However, the valve is tightened as much as it can go. Any ideas how to fix?

You may want to try uninstalling the showerhead completely. Once uninstalled you should clean the threads on the shower arm, making sure there is no residue left at all. Once cleaned you'll want to wrap teflon tape around the very same threaded section. If you're not familiar with teflon tape, ask any attendant at your local hardware store and they should be able to point you in the right direction. It is very easy to use and once applied it should be able to minimize if not eliminate your current plumbing problem. (TIP: Make sure you cover all of the threads!) Once you have applied the tape you are now ready to re-tighten your showerhead back in its original position. If you still have a leak, post again and let us know!
