Standard Shower Head Mounting Options

A standard showerhead – or fixed shower head as they are sometimes called – is designed to be mounted directly onto a shower arm. Shower arms can be the standard type, which is probably what you have in your shower right now. The can also be s-shaped to raise the height of your shower, adjustable-height so you can keep your hair dry, or get drenched from above.
