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.

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

Exactly how many inches will the 16 inch arm extend from the wall. I currently have a 14 5/8 that only extends 11.5 inches and it's not enough.

I need the exact measurement from the wall to the point that the arm turns down. The one I have (14 5/8) only extends 11.5 inches from the wall so I'm not sure 16 is enough.
Asked by: Larry
Hi Larry, Thank you for your question. The RP46870 shower arm measures 16" from the end of the threads that screw into the wall to the middle of the the opposite end where the water comes out. How far the arm extends from the wall will be affected by how deep into the wall the female fiting is located. Thanks, Dave

Can this shower arm also be used with the Dryden Collection?

Your 2011-12 catalog shows this shower arm with the Dryden Collection raincan showerhead (p. 78), but I have not found it associated with that collection otherwise. Please advise. Thank you. TN
