U shaped shower rod

kareenaJune 22, 2013

I recently renovated my pre-war bathroom where I kept the 3 sided cast iron tub. Unfortunately, I discarded my U shaped shower rod, thinking it would be easy to replace. The newer ones are cheaply made, and they come in 3 flimsy pieces which need to be connected. The material and the fact that it's not a single solid piece makes it much less stable than my original one. I even use the ceiling support rod which helps a little but not much. I dislike it immensely! My question is - does anyone know where I can get a solid, one-piece shower rod? Any sites that specialize in old-fashioned plumbing equipment? Thanks for any advice. Karen

Wayfair has one that looks to be one piece. It does have the ceiling support rod and I guess there's no way around that.


Hopefully, the link will work.

If you want a 1 piece U-Rod you can always buy a brass made rod which aren't flimsy like aluminum, along with a ceiling support in the middle shouldn't be a problem.
Below is a link that can help, this is of highest quality I could find.

Had a claw foot tub and installed a shower valve and curtian support. I believe the maker was PortoFino. It was 4 sided with 3 support points, two wall and one ceiling. Very well made.

thanks for the responses. I can't believe how expensive some of these are! Unfortunately, none of the rods suggested fit my needs - I'm looking for a one piece rod with 2 short sides and one longer side. If I had only known how difficult this would be to replace, I would have kept the original one.... thanks again, Karen
