Put the roll of extra tape in the toolbox where you can easily find it, along with the flow restricted showerhead that you replaced with a 5-setting one. That way you won't have to buy new ones when you move. Then you can take your fancy massaging showerhead to the new place and install it there.

Not true for Moen. When I pruchased my house every plumbing fixtures were Moens and one day the shower handle broke. They wouldn't replace it without the receipt. When I told them it came with the house so I had no receipt, there was nothing they could do even though it says Moen on it.
