Question

Need Help With Clawfoot Shower Curtain Rods.


Hi, I'm new here! I know relatively nothing about plumbing, but I can follow specific instructions.

I have a problem with my shower- or rather- my shower has a problem with me: I'm 6'5. The shower head's highest point is at my chin so I resort to Yoga moves everytime I bathe. I wish it were as simple as buying a taller riser, but one of them seem to exceed 61-62 inches!

Unless someone knows of some great resource that sells tall risers, then I need to extend it. I bought my shower on ebay. This is what I'm working with. Any ideas?

the link you show would have your head stuck through the ceiling if your chin is on the top of it, the only thing you could do is raise it with an extension. ....or you could always cut off your feet?

Ayuh,... The Riser pipe is just 1/2" pipe threaded,..
Buy a 1/2" pipe nipple of the length you want,+ join it with a 1/2" coupler...
