Shower Pole Needs Replacing but 600cm Between Fixtures

Postby mawallace » Sun Nov 26, 2017 10:35 am


this morning my son broke the fitting which the shower head goes into.

I looked at replacing it but the "pole" is flat rather then round - this means that most replacements won't work.

There's no details of manufacturer on the reverse.

So I thought - replace the pole - but it's 60cm between the fixtures - which seems to be greater than most poles.

Any one know if there's any suitable pole - I do not want to put a smaller one up as this will leave holes on the tiles.

PS I usually crack tiles when I try to drill through them so would prefer using existing fitting holes.

Any help would be appreciated..
