Switch Retrofit Slide Rail with 16" Tall Shower Arm
With Switch Retrofit slide rail you can easily add a hand shower to almost any bathroom, without touching the plumbing behind the wall or damaging your shower walls.
Retrofit shower slide rail is made from metal for strength and durability
Designed for new installations or to replace an existing shower arm and shower head
There is a built-in diverter to direct water between the hand shower and the shower head. Switch can also work with an installed diverter tub spout, so an F1001B non-diverting pressure balancing valve can deliver water to a tub, shower and hand shower.
The Switch 16" features a 16" shower arm with a 6" riser, perfect for larger rain shower heads.
Important: The 8" Shower arm cannot be used with an 8" rain shower head. The largest shower head that will work is a 6" rain shower head. (Rain shower heads larger than 6" must be installed horizontally, or water will pool at the bottom)
A check valve is installed for backflow prevention
The hose elbow at the bottom of the slide rail positions the shower hose to lop around the valve cover and can be positioned left of right.
This is a slide rail and shower arm only; it requires a hand shower and shower head, sold separately.
The Switch retrofit slide rail is intended to work with existing rough-in plumbing, so valves and valve covers are not included.
Not intended for use as a grab bar.
