Get one of these. It took my husband and I six years to get one. I don't know why we waited so long. They're not that hard to put in, and if your complex is managed you can probably get a maintenance person to install it for you!

u/mikel81 · 39 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

For that much you can get this crazy looking one with a digital readout and tons of faucets.

u/LouGubrius · 27 pointsr/tall

Might also look at this style if you are renting. You just unscrew the shower head, screw on the extender, then the shower head goes on the other end of the extender. You can also loosen the fingernuts which lets it flop free. Makes it much easier to rinse out the shower when cleaning.

u/xeightx · 27 pointsr/tall

This shower head extension is one of the best thing's I've bought recently:

It makes me weep for all those years when I had to squat in the shower to get my shoulders and head wet.

u/weeeeelaaaaaah · 19 pointsr/tall

Shower head extension! Enjoy water falling on your head, not your shoulders!

Here is a basic list of items in the project and where they can be found if you're interested:

Wall Faucets

Wall Faucet Valve Assembly

Bathtub Faucet

Bathtub Faucet Valves

Shower Panel

vessel Sinks

Shower Curb Product

Vanity On this, I negotiated with the seller since I didn't like the sinks/counter/mirrors that were included. They sold me the vanity only for a lesser price than advertised. I purchased the granite for the vanity/tub/privacy wall separately.

Shower Tiles are 12x24 and were purchased at Lowes, shower mosaic tile at HD

*Flooring tiles 6x24 were purchased at HD. Grout is "bone" color and also at Home Depot.

u/mc_stormy · 14 pointsr/tall

This and This.

u/Mellowjoat · 12 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

I had this put in when we redid our master bath. It tells the temperature in a display mounted in the mirror and is powered by the water or batteries.

u/hibikikun · 11 pointsr/HomeImprovement
u/CDeltonWalker · 11 pointsr/DIY

In the meantime try this:

I use it in my rental and it's great -- I'm 6'3" and I fit under it.

u/vspazv · 11 pointsr/funny

Why do people put up with this? Either get a detachable shower head or an extension arm.

If you live in an apartment just keep the original one so you can put it back on when you move out. You can usually install them without even using any tools.

u/GCS_3 · 10 pointsr/funny

From one tall person to another get one of these then a rain style showerhead.

It's a great feeling to stand up straight and have the water wash over all of you, front and back.

u/ListenToThisTho · 7 pointsr/tall

6'4" if anyone's curious. And here's the extender.

u/26_Charlie · 6 pointsr/gay_irl

You can go to your local hardware store like Homo Depot and ask for a 3 way (diverter). An example is linked below.

You can also ask for a shower hand held. They can replace your shower head or some come with diverter. But more importantly they use the same sort of hose that you can attach your... attachment to.

Delta Shower Arm Diverter for Hand Shower, Chrome

u/crazycanuks · 6 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

Almost 6'3" here. One of the first renovations I've done in every place I've owned is raise the shower head in whatever shower I will be using. It's not really that big a deal if you can access the plumbing from the other side.

If you're renting or not that handy you can also used one of these for a quick fix.

Shower Arm S Style Chrome

u/designymia · 6 pointsr/tall
u/0xffff2 · 5 pointsr/videos

I'm only 5'11", but my mom's house was built for hobbits. This is an absolute lifesaver.

u/indyphil · 5 pointsr/sex

Delta Faucet U4920-PK 3-Way Shower Arm Diverter with Handshower Mount, Chrome

You take the rain head off and put this in line. Then you can switch from one to the other :)

You might want to wrap threads in teflon tape but this is something pretty much anyone can do themselves.

u/onebadmofo · 5 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Installed shower panel in basement bathroom. It's surprisingly well made for the money and works great. Wife also spends a lot more time in the shower now, I think it has to do with showerhead design...

u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/tall

If anyone is interested, you could do this yourself in 5 minutes for under $20.

You just need a new shower pipe like this:

u/ladykansas · 5 pointsr/centuryhomes

I wonder if you could prevent it from getting quite as wet by adjusting the angle the shower sprays. We did a quick fix to our shower to make it more of a "rain shower" by adding an extension arm:

The water now splashes totally differently in our whole shower. Since it's strait down, the walls do not get nearly as wet. I didn't anticipate how big the change would be.

u/wiskuhz · 4 pointsr/tall

someone posted this

in the sub a few days ago might fix your dilemma

i am 6'6 and constantly smacking my face on the shower head i might have to buy one soon too

u/austinanimal · 4 pointsr/MURICA

This thing was the first thing I was thinking. I have this everywhere now. My wife is 5'3" and I'm 6'4".

u/ftidda · 4 pointsr/DIY

I used this exact thing when I lived in an old building with just a claw foot bathtub. The reviews aren't great but I really liked it. You just have to get used to being cold while you wash your hair!

Body Moods 7653700B Portable Shower

u/keeper420 · 4 pointsr/HomeImprovement

This is what you need. Just get that old adhesive off, this comes with adhesive. I would use a level to make sure it is sloped down into the shower. Just slightly down, gravity will do the rest.

u/db2 · 4 pointsr/DiWHY

Yeah those things are kinda shit. Try this:

u/NotQuiteOnTopic · 4 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

That is an absolute unit of a link you got there. Same product:

u/Vigro318 · 4 pointsr/lifehacks

There's this shit called a shower arm. I'm 6'2 and live in a pretty small apartment as well. It cost me like 20$ max and made showers 100% better.

u/roflstompt · 3 pointsr/tall

I recommend a shower head like this, and/or an extension like this. I have a similar setup, and it's pretty awesome. Obviously not helpful for the road, but for 95% of the rest of life it's great.

u/brock_lee · 3 pointsr/DIY

Take the shower head. They should have the correct size. You can buy a three-adapter kit, as well, which covers pretty much all of them, I think.

On the other hand, this is DIY, so replacing the shower arm is not that complicated. They are connected via a threaded connection in the wall and there are plenty of videos on youtube.

u/Elendira · 3 pointsr/DesignPorn

Get a shower head extender. Helps with the height, you won't lose any pressure, and it makes it easier to rinse out the tub after cleaning. I recommend this cheapo Delta; it's been good to me for years now.

u/SubliminationStation · 3 pointsr/UNBGBBIIVCHIDCTIICBG

[This]( Arm, Fivanus Universal Showering Components, 11"(Total Length) Adjustable Height Shower Head Arm Easy for Any Shower Angles. Chrome is a life saver

u/OldTownPress · 3 pointsr/SCREENPRINTING

Shower sprays can work, but you'll occasionally run into issues like this where it doesn't completely wash out.

You should look into getting a small pressure washer, and a garden hose adapter for your shower arm. When I converted a spare bathroom to my washout station, I got one of these, and one of these, and hooked up my pressure washer to it, while still being able to attach the shower head.

u/kitschfrays · 3 pointsr/tall

Not OP but I've installed the same at every place I've rented in the last 5 years. They have longer ones at Home Depot/elsewhere on the net, but they're all called the same.

Edit: "S-pipe"

u/tviolet · 2 pointsr/Plumbing

You can get plastic shower heads that have a hose that slips over the faucet: They aren't great but they're OK in a pinch.

u/pemachodron4prez · 2 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

That thing is hideous looking. This is the one I have Has digital water temperature and many other functions. There are similar models that are even cheaper than this one.

u/skedssays · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I bought a one piece one for my door

Will that work to replace both pieces?

u/Meltz014 · 2 pointsr/daddit

We use one of these and one of these

u/Blu64 · 2 pointsr/funny

I'm 6'4" and I use This to solve the problem. No more bending over in the shower. Unless you want to :)

u/Fig_tree · 2 pointsr/funny

Same problem here, I got a shower head extension, $20, does the job beautifully!

u/rambleon84 · 2 pointsr/funny

Add one of these s extensions in addition

Lol going o be a funny looking shower when you are done

Get a shower extension! I’m 6’4” and this changed my life Delta Faucet UA902-PK 10-inch Adjustable Shower Arm, Chrome

u/e60deluxe · 2 pointsr/tall

if you dont need the adustability, and just need it to be higher, this is a significantly less ugly version of that:

just to be clear, this replaces the downward facing shower arm where as the one OP linked attatches onto the end of the downward facing arm.

however, OPs is probably a safer install if you are renting.

u/scaredofme · 2 pointsr/DiWHY

Try one of these extenders. They take only a few minutes to install and you'll never have this problem again.

u/livingcode · 2 pointsr/tall
u/Ganglio_Side · 2 pointsr/lifehacks

About $45 at a Lowes nearby my house.

At Amazon for $18 plus shipping.

u/Fun_For_Guill · 2 pointsr/Showerthoughts

There are products that do this. Here's one on amazon

u/EduardH · 2 pointsr/tall

A few months ago someone else on r/tall linked to this one and I got it. $17 and worth every penny!

u/imperfectfromnowon · 2 pointsr/UNBGBBIIVCHIDCTIICBG

I'm also 6' 5" and I put one of these extensions on for now until I remodel my shower.

u/mburke1124 · 1 pointr/mildlyinfuriating

I'm assuming this is a dorm with a shower in the room if not this advice might not apply unless you don't mind waiting to take a shower in a specific stall. As a tall person myself I know about this sort of thing. They make height extenders. Here is the one I use. It just screws on where the head is, I would recommend getting a bigger rain type shower head.

u/Longinus · 1 pointr/funny

As a fellow 6'5, 200 pounder, may I suggest one of these? The installation is really easy and you don't have to duck down as far.

u/TMaccius · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

The 396 gph version isn't much more expensive. To keep from using too much ice, you could start by letting the pot rest on its own for a few minutes (try a hop stand!), then switch to cold tap water through the pump, then switch that out for ice water. The key is just maintaining a high differential between the wort and whatever you're cooling with.

Another option -- and this is a little off the wall -- is to use your shower. You could switch to a handheld shower, get a diverter, or get a showerhead with a splitter that would let you easily swap in your wort chiller. Handheld showers use a pretty standard 1/2" thread.

u/the_argonath · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement
u/PizzaGood · 1 pointr/funny

Unscrew shower head, screw this on:

screw shower head on to that.

If that's not enough, there are other options, or you can go with a hand held head on a flex hose.

u/thedude213 · 1 pointr/funny

I had the same problem, you're going to need one of these:

Extremely easy to install, just don't forget the teflon tape

u/qooqpoop · 1 pointr/memes

Not at all, it just made me laugh. I recently put one of these in during my bathroom remodel and it works great:

u/masturbathon · 1 pointr/tall

It won't help THAT much, but there are these things.

I own my house but haven't wanted to remodel the bathroom yet, so I use one. It only adds 11" but it's better than nothing!

u/applegoesdown · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Fair warning, I have never used the device, it was just a quick search to illustrate a point. If this were me, I would find the local plumbing supply house where all the tradesmen go to buy plumbing parts, and ask them for an Offset Flange, or at least google offset flange and find one that is reviewed well. My question with using an offset flange is how to get the wax ring to work right, but probably wont bee too difficult.

Edit #1:

ALso, if you got something like this

You might be able to raise and steer the head closer to the shower door and bring it higher.

u/halcyoncmdr · 1 pointr/pics

Join the club my tall brethren.

u/meangrampa · 1 pointr/funny

Older houses were built for the generations before us. Better nutrition allowed us to grow taller than our parents and this has been going on for a few generations. I'm a builder and the ones I build come out of the ceiling or up around 6'4' depending on the installation. But we've also got to take the shorter of us into account too. So we use something like this

Lots of different designs are available and if you shop around you can get what fits your needs pretty cheaply. I hate to say it but Walmart has a decent selection. They have to serve a lot of freaks so they're going to have a good selection that are designed differently. The majority have a pulse setting but they sell standard ones too.

u/Captain-Tripps · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Changing my shower arm , getting a water diverter , getting any rainfall shower head, combining it with a high pressure hose shower head and a suction cup shower bar so you don't have to drill . Every time I bathe I feel like I'm in a spa.

u/User151a · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

There are a couple different kinds and the threads might be different. Buy both and just try it.

Pfister is the most common brand that I’ve seen

Here’s a set of 3 different adapter sizes

u/sanfran54 · 1 pointr/HelpMeFind

What you're likely looking for is something like this. I used one similar to this decades ago when I had an old house without a shower. They're a compromise for sure but as you're a renter you're not going to be replacing a tub faucet as it difficult and expensive. Some have no way to attach the shower head to the tub wall and can only be used by hand but this one seems to have suction cup holder. They don't always work well however.

u/MySuperLove · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

Not directly related to your post, but check this out:

It raises your shower head by about 10 inches. I went from having the showerhead right at the base of my neck to just under the top of my head. I have to bend WAY less now to shampoo/condition my hair

Listen to your better half. She's a smart girl. Rain shower head is a great thing. What prevents the drip is your shower valve. Get a decent one, and you should not have much to deal with.

The handhelds are nice. Had you thought about a shower panel? 10,000 to choose from, starting at around $100 or so. Here is one candidate:

u/stratford · 1 pointr/tall
u/informationmissing · 1 pointr/funny

This is the same reason I hate EVERY shower. Buy one of these, it will be the best $20 bucks you'll ever spend. Take it with you when you travel.

u/YawnSpawner · 1 pointr/funny

I'd go with an s curve shower arm instead. I'm 6' 2" and put one on my shower and it works perfectly, the adjustable kind can and will leak eventually.

For a glorious showering experience, try this raincan showerhead. I don't know how lived without it now.

u/yensid7 · 1 pointr/DIY

It would be similar to the multihead ones you see that have body sprayers, so you should be able to pull it off from a pressure perspective.

I don't think I've seen one with two heads that point down like that, though.

u/shelf_satisfied · 1 pointr/DIY

If you can't find wall mount that will stick to your tile, another option could be one of those adjustable shower arms that let you raise and lower the shower head.

u/thisisntarjay · 1 pointr/mildlyinfuriating

OH MAN I have just the solution for you. Check this shit out. He can fix this for $17 with 10 inch adjustable shower arm, bitches!

u/acommentator · 1 pointr/homeowners

Thanks for the suggestions! I just stumbled upon this video which explains that is a ball end shower arm from the 80's and linked to this set of 3 adapters for the 3 companies.


This other thread says I could/should instead replace the shower arm itself.

u/SilkySmoothNuts · 1 pointr/todayilearned

A true life changer. Or anything similar will do. It went from the showerhead being eye level to "Holy shit, is this what it is like to shower as an average person?"

u/__helix__ · 1 pointr/Showerthoughts

Oh be warned... be warned. Such a thing does exist. When the time came to remodel my bathroom, I thought I would go all fancy like and install one of these gadgets. Got one of these with one of these to control the water. That part was not too bad. Would have been a simple connection to a classic shower head assembly.

Visions of a full decontamination shower danced through my head, however. Why not a shower head in the celling and additional heads in the wall? Next to hanging wall paper in the nursery, soldering together the bloody thing was one of the hardest challenges my 21 years of marriage survived. They show the easy part. What they don't show was the 'soldering template included for ease of installation', where you had to perfectly align four threaded pipes in a tangled copper Elder Sign. Many months later, I finally had mastered the copper pressure loop / nipple combo - everything measured out exactly and not leaking, with additional pressure loops to honor His Noodly Appendage . So far, the ward has keep the Deep Ones from ravaging my drywall. My sanity suffered greatly from dabbling this in forbidden lore.

u/neonturbo · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I purchased a T fitting that allows you to use two shower heads, and switch the water between the two. It works great. It is universal, so it should work with most handheld showers.

u/CMDR_BlueCrab · 1 pointr/tall

I highly recommend this:
attached to one or maybe even two of these:

u/meowmeowtits · -1 pointsr/Plumbing

I think ima do this.

Half in wall plate. Screw to wall.

Half in pipe, however long that makes sense.

Hook that to it.

Attach hose from tub faucet to bottom of the valve.

Attach any shower head I want to other end of valve.
