    How can I replace my shower head?

    The pipe connecting my shower head leaks every time we turn it on. My question is how can I replace this disaster with a new shower head that won't leak? Would I need to fix the pipe itself as well? Thank you for who ever reads this and helps!

    Will a sponge (vs rubber) gasket feel damp even when connected properly?

    Trust me I already know it seems like a dumb question but do sponge style tank gasket get damp?
