Simple, straightforward and low shipping rates for these Price Pfister hand shower kits.
Q. "I sometimes need support when getting in and out of the shower. Will these slide bars work as grab bars too?"
A. In a word, no. These Price Pfister slide bars are designed only to support the hand showers, rather like shower arms are designed to hold showerheads. These slide bars are not ADA compliant and should never be used as a grab bar for support. However, we do offer grab bar hand shower kits that are designed for support.
Q. "Do these handshower kits include the volume and temperature controls?"
A. These hand shower kits come as shown, unless otherwise noted in the description. If you are including one of these Price Pfister hand shower kits in a new installation and not simply replacing an existing showerhead, you will need a valve as well. We offer a variety of thermostatic and pressure balance valves by Jaclo and Danze, among others. If you don't see what you need, just let us know and we'll check on it for you.
Q. "Will these handshower kits work with my existing shower valve?"
A. Most of these handshower kits are designed to simply replace your existing showerhead. In this case, as long as your existing shower arm is 1/2" IPS, which is standard, they should work with your existing setup. Installation is easy; remove your existing showerhead and replace with the handshower kit. The handshower kits that come with a water supply drop elbow, such as the ShowerStyle series, can take the place of your shower arm as well (with the help of an appropriately sized nipple and coupling, if needed), or it can be installed with a separate diverter valve as part of a luxury custom shower installation.
Q. "What material are these handshower kits made from?"
A. As with most modern handshowers, these Price Pfister handshowers and accessories are primarily composed of an acrylic polymer, which is a durable form of plastic and therefore lightweight and rust-proof, making it an ideal material for hand held showers. The lightweight design of these handshowers also helps prevent damage to expensive tile or porcelain-finished cast iron tubs should the hand held shower ever be dropped. For hard-water areas, these acrylic polymer units are especially beneficial as they will easily wipe down for scale removal.
Q. "I installed my Price Pfister hand shower kit but I found these little gaskets in the bottom of the box. Are they extras?"
A. Many handshower kits, including those by Price Pfister, include a number of small rubber washers or o-rings that are sometimes packaged separately from the hose, where they should be installed to prevent leaks. Unfortunately, this means that they sometimes get forgotten. In fact, the most common reason for a new handshower kit to leak is due to a gasket being left in the box. If you do have gaskets in your box, double check the instructions and confirm you have installed the necessary gaskets.
