Installed S-shaped shower arm and finally have good height to my shower! I was deciding between this or an adjustable extender. I was worried this would be hard to install since it attaches to the wall, but I was also concerned the other style will leak at the adjustable joints... So glad I went with this one. Just searched youtube for install videos and it was a breeze :) It's a generic, no name, plain packaged S-arm. But good solid quality and perfect height for me. Make sure you have ceiling clearance (and possible shower door clearance) as you need to be able to screw this guy in 360 degrees all the way in. For whatever reason, my shower was installed off centered so it was located pretty close to the shower door. I measured first and this just made the clearance for my shower door bar thing. I would say you need a 9.25" clearance. A good buy!
I puchased this unit approx. 2 years ago and we completely LOVE IT. When I had pre-purchase and pre-installation questions, Vigo's tech support team was easy to contact and answered alll my questions. A recent part replacement was also dealt with immediately. REAL PEOPLE answer the phone when you call!! * Tip for new buyers - when you measure for placement of wall mounting brackets, make sure that you have enough ceiling height clearance for the unit to be able clear the tip/top of the the wall brackets when intitially mounting the unit. If the tip of the top of the wall bracket is mounted too high, you will hit the ceiling (or not be able to mount at all) with the top of the unit when attempting to lift it OVER the wall brackets. So, basically, measure twice ... mount once!!! Fantastic product! Thank you VIGO!
I had this professionally installed during a bathroom remodel. The only issue is that the part past the flange was not long enough. Because we were still in the construction phase, we were able to make some adjustment but a tight fit with flange, studs, and tile. Just make sure you have the clearance. But once up this looked great. A simple item but a detail that really added to the modern feel of the bathroom.
The handle didn't sit well in the cradle at first, falling out when the water pressure was reduced. Ooch! And for tall people, the clearance between your head and the spray head is reduced. The flexibility provided when being used by hand is great and the different setting for the spray is fantastic. Overall a good value.
