Tag Archives: Fittings

I am always surprised when I see a shower or a tub installation that does not have a hand shower. I have no idea how either can be cleaned without this admirable device. I am sure that there was a time when a hand shower was an exotic add on to an already expensive project. However, the small additional cost is easily balanced by its function.

Once again Eric Rexrode, our Waterworks Outside Sales Consultant in Philadelphia, has kindly written this post. Thanks, Eric: We often get requests for fittings that can be mounted on the wall above the sink. I love this idea because it’s a great solution to gain more counter space as well as to use that often forgotten vertical layer in the bathroom. The wall above the sink is most commonly used for medicine cabinets, mirrors, lighting or a small shelf. But moving your faucet to this space can create an additional design element. This is the perfect solution when there is insufficient depth to properly mount a fitting in the counter. (A counter with a stone top and undermount oval sink should be no less than 23″.)
