View Full Version : Shower Head wont fit on shower arm

10-03-2011, 06:50 PM
I just purchased a new shower head for my shower and the arm of the shower does not seem to accept the shower head. It has a screw that is on the shower arm and somthing like a ball on the tip of the arm. Is there any other showerheads that any one knows that fit this type of shower arm? Or should I just replace the arm. Thanks

Replace the arm.

You have an old ball end arm, and it will only accept ONE shower head, made by that particular company. The two well-known ball end arms were Price Pfister, and American Standard ( and they have different threads from one another).

It is getting very difficult to find either of those heads. You should remove that arm and replace it
