Shower head standard


So We purchased this beautiful rain shower head and faucet set from kohler...my husband is demanding we HAVE to mount it to the exact measurements it says in the direction booklet. If we do so the shower head will rub the top of my head and he would have to duck to get under it..he is still saying it ABSOLUTLY must be mounted this way. Does it...im explaining it is probably a standard, he says not its to code..i explain to him that a manufactures direction booklete does NOTE know the codes of manchester township in PA.

Can we mount this shower head higher if we need to in order to fit under it or will it not work properly?
Thanks

Just install it at a comfortable height. Yes we have codes on heights , but unless you are calling an inspector for a shower head replacement, relax. I've been plumbing for 20+ years and never had an inspector even look at the height of a shower head in a home.
It will work at whatever height you put it , unless you have that special water that is afraid of heights

ACE Hardware, for one, sells a 2-point pivoting arm in chrome finish that mates up the existing arm - no matter what height you settle upon - and permits you to raise or lower the actual shower head to suit your comfort level. That way, both of you get what you want.
