    I installed a 48" shower. It has a seat. My plumbing has to come in through the wall on the side of the seat. I want to extend the rain shower head to the center of the shower. Can"t find a arm extention over 17". Any suggestions?

    Are you looking to relocate the head within the shower stall or extend the lines in the wall over to the center of the stall. I would go with the latter, run with copper.

    extension

    You will not unless you make something out of chrome pipe, and regardless of how you do it, you will have to provide some support or it will snap off at the wall.

    At that point it becomes Rube Goldberg like.

    Put the roadrunner in place of the tomato, and then give it to the coyote to build it.
