Hand held sprays wall

salbwilJuly 22, 2014

Hi,
Our hand held , which is the only shower in tub , sprays the wall , and not into the tub, no matter where it is placed on the bar. Do I need to replace this or is there a fix ?
Thanks,
Salbwil

Are you saying it sprays across the length of the tub and sprays the opposite end wall of the tub? If so, can you rotate the bracket on the slidebar so the head points at a lower angle? Or change the spray pattern?

If the wide spray pattern is causing it to spray the long wall of the tub, then you can adjust the spray pattern on the head if it is indeed adjustable, or you can get a new head. If you get a new head, take your old one with you when you go shopping to make sure the hose/bracket connections are compatible.

We had a similar issue with a wall mounted hand held shower head. We ended up replacing the attachment at the wall. In your case, you need a a replacement for the way your hand held attaches to the bar that allows the head to be pointed elsewhere than straight ahead. Here is one from HD that's kind of ugly but the right idea.

If you search around you may be able to find something that looks good with your bar.
