Simply Build It

i understand what you mean but not sure about the fitting, however i do have another suggestion you could try instead

You could possibly get one of those shower heads that connect to your hot and cold bath taps, that way you can take it off when not in use and im guessing it wont be as much work to set up.

Hi Tricia,

If I understand you correctly, you already have a shower over the bath?

If not, you want to have a mixer tap on your bath which has a switch to change the water flow to the shower fitting, and at the same time be able to attach the shower head to the wall so you can stand up to have a shower?

If the latter is the case, then get one of these ... e%20%BE%22

or something similar. As long as you have a long enough hose you should be able to use it for both types of showering task.

Good luck.
