Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shower Arm We remodeled our bathroom and wanted a rain drop shower. This shower Arm definitely worked aesthetically and practically. We did choose the oil rubbed bronze. Just try to be aware when you are tightening the arm to the head with metal on metal as much as possible.

Asked by: Bradel
Hello Bradel, Thank you for your question about the Delta 16" shower arm and the Delta Ceiling Mount Shower Arm & Flange and I'll be happy to assist you with this today. Unfortunately, you will not be able to connect those two shower arms together and I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are interested we do carry an extendable shower arm that reaches between 13-22 inches, Model #U6930-RB. I hope this information is helpful. Thank you, Brandy Delta Faucet Company Customer Service

Measurement of RP46870RB

Vertical measurement is stated here at 2.09 inches from center to end of threads. What is the measurement in inches and not tenths... There are no tenths on a USA tape measure... ???? Would that be like 9& 7/8 inches ?????
Asked by: Harrys Plumbing
2-3/32" is the nearest fractional equivalent to 2.09". On your standard USA tape measure, that is halfway between 2-1/16" and 2-1/8".

I have a Brizo Baliza shower arm & showerhead- can I replace the shower arm with this piece?

Asked by: tb15
Hi tb15, Thank you for your question! This shower arm would work with the Brizo shower head, as the threads will be the same. Thanks, Jon

What is the height of the vertical piece?

Im trying to determine the clearance underneath the shower head based on a 78" height to the shower elbow on the wall where the delta shower arm threads into the wall. But I need to know the vertical dimensions. I'm looking at the Vero 1401 shower system with square rain head but again there is no vertical dimension on the prints for the T14253 head. Very puzzling that no one seems to have needed that yet.
Asked by: Gerald
Hi Gerald, Thank you for your question. The measurement from the middle of the horizontal pipe to the bottom of the elbow on the RP45870RB shower arm is 2.09". Thanks, Dave
