To enjoy a shower, you need more than just hot water. A good showerhead is extremely important, otherwise the water can arrive with no pressure and no adjustable options whatsoever. A sliding bar showerhead is one of the easiest ways to adjust the shower to your needs which is why all the products listed below have one.
This European-style shower system feels right at home in any bathroom due to its stainless steel finish. It features an easy-to-use function handle which lets you switch between holding the showerhead or keeping it overhead, it has a rustproof body made of premium steel, and it includes an adjustable shower bracket so that you can set different height levels for the water fall. The provided sliding bar showerhead is also a great addition as it allows for more flexibility. In addition to all that, there is a tub sprout option so you can literally use it with any configuration. If you are planning to install it in a U.S. home, you will need a thread adapter/converter as the system uses BSPP connections common in Europe.
Delta Faucet 51708 Universal Showering Components, Slide Bar-Hand Shower, Chrome Review
One of the most flexible shower systems you could possibly hope to install in your home, the Delta Faucet 51708 includes seven different water settings including various massage options to turn a standard shower in the morning into a refreshing experience, every single time. The chrome finish makes it appropriate in any setting and the 29-inch sliding bar showerhead allows you to adjust it any time you want. Because of how adjustable it is, it can be used in settings where other showerheads would simply not fit. The ease of installation is also a bonus as you can add it to an existing system for extra purposes such as cleaning an area or bathing pets.
KES F221 Bathroom Slide Bar with Adjustable Handheld Showerhead Holder, Chrome Review
Another great product by the KES brand which continues to make a name for itself outside of its native China. The standalone version only includes the sidebar but it does offer support for all kinds of systems including a sliding bar showerhead. For an extra price, you can also get a hose and showerhead included with every delivery. The slide bar features a multi-layer chrome finish, which protects it against the elements, and the whole thing has been specially made in order to be as adjustable as possible. It includes everything you need to mount it on a wall and the flexible bar is operated by pressing a button and then moving it around which you can do with one hand.
Despite the fact that all of the aforementioned products have a strong focus on flexibility and adjustability, the truth is that they might require some extra work before they can be installed. Usually, any arising issues can be solved with a simple hack saw but not everyone is comfortable with using one. Furthermore, as the products have been developed to suit any home, you might find that very specific requirements are not always met. Performing substantial changes after the installation has been completed is not particularly easy. To rectify that, you must pay close attention during the initial phase of the systems being fitted, otherwise you may need to spend extra time removing and adjusting them all over again. Finally, some people may feel the need to replace the included plastic parts with more durable ones made from stainless steel though this is not always necessary as it depends on the specifications of the installation and how you use the showerhead.
