As the subject line says, we have a block shower in the basement of
the house we just bought. It works fine, but the shower head is
positioned about 6 inches above my waist.
The hardware is an old fashioned mixing valve (separate hot and cold)
with a riser coming out of the middle section. The riser arches over
at the top, ending in the shower head. The hardware is not inside the
wall, but is mounted onto the shower wall.
I've done quite a bit of looking and I can't find anything similar for
sale. Any ideas on where I could find such an animal to replace what
is there now?
I could possibly replace just the riser, but it looks like it is
attached to the mixing valve by a method other than threads. I haven't
taken it apart yet.
Any ideas welcome.
