Plumbing Questions? Ask a Plumber for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing and plumbing repair field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today.
There would be an inexpensive option but there would be one issue. Would it matter to you if the slide for the hand held did not raise all of the way up if the option I suggest would extend the shower head higher?
So, the bar is in pieces that are threaded together. You would get a rain head shower arm that is the same finish as the shower. These arms are straight. They have male threads on each end so you may have to order a coupling that has female threads of the same finish. The arm would be available at any plumbing supply and most likely the coupling too. At worst you would have to order the coupling. The rain head shower arm comes in different lengths too. The slide bar will go as high as it goes now but will not go any higher because of the coupling fitting and the arm may be slightly different than the bar as far as outer diameter. I am at work now so let me know what you think and I will respond when I can.

The round cover does not have to be used. It has male threads on each end and is just a straight nipple. You would also need a female coupling for one end. You could use it to extend the riser arm. I understand that text does not represent as well as verbal communication. Now if you responded in all caps well......
I see, so the part I suggested is actually too long then?
Maybe the extension from the manufacturer is the only option. I do know that parts from the manufacturer are much more expensive. Have you tried shopping the model number of the part online?
Thank you for suggesting that. I needed to read the question again. What parts did not connect when you tried the replacement part?
