    Default shower spout adapter

    My daughter has moved into an old house. There is no shower in the tub. Is there a way to set up a hand held shower head or a pipe that fits onto the spout? Or are adapters spouts made that would allow a connection to a hand held shower head? Any suggestions?

    I have seen hand-held shower adapter that are like a big rubber fist and fit over the end of the spout. These are hard to find these days. You can easily find a replacement spout which has a side connector for a hand-held hose.

    More important, what is the wall material? Is it something which is meant to have the water of a shower?

    I think it is tile, but I am not sure. I will investigate.

    Default spout

    ALL the handheld manufacturers make a replacement diverter spout to connect the shower hose to.
