    Default adjusting the shower head angle

    Question regarding shower head...even when it's angled as low as possible, it's still aimed too high.

    Is there a connector of some type that goes between the shower arm and shower head that would allow me to angle the water spray lower?

    You might need to replace the shower arm with one that has more of a bend in it or buy a new showerhead.

    Buy a shower arm that points straight down, and then use the head's adjustment to turn it upwards.

    This is what I've used. When James was in high school, he was 6'4", and Taylor was 4.

    If you get one of those, be sure it has "teeth" at the swivels to hold the arm in position. It is almost impossible to tighten "friction" swivels tight enough to keep them from sagging.

    Or you could replace your showerhead all together with a slidebar unit.
