What is the slide bar in a shower for?

hosenemesisMarch 11, 2012

So many questions-

Is the slide bar that comes with some shower heads just for looks or does it serve a purpose? I imagine it functions to raise or lower the height of the shower head, but I have never used one. Is it a useful feature in addition to being beautiful?

We have one in each bathroom. Yes it slides shower head up and down. One of them has a soap dish attached that can also move. Really like them.

It's very useful for us. Husband is 6'4" I am 5'4". Finally we can both have the shower head at just the right height.

In addition to the different height adustments, mine also has a permanent holder at the bottom of the slide bar where you can attach the shower head and put it on massage/pulse setting and have a lower back massage. Yum.
