    Hi everyone,
    I live in an apartment that has Niagra conservation head installed and I cannot have enough water from it, nor can I remove it, its a nightmare. However, I have a lower head that doesnt have this problem, I would like to buy the right hose and head size to connect with it so I can use it instead of the upper head. Here is s picture of the lower head: http://i62.tinypic.com/n3rugy.jpg

    Or you csn see the attached picture.

    Thank you everyone!

    Are you sure you can't change the shower head. They take a standard 1/2" IP thread.

    It looks like it should unthread from the wall adapter with a pair of pliers.

    Instead of taking it off, is there something I can put on the lower head to use it as a shower? Thanks.

    That looks like a magic fixture the top one. Is it held in place with bubble gum. I see no screws holding that in place.

    Maybe someone glued it together and the entire rig twists off ???

    Do you own the apartment or renting it? If renting, please talk to the landlord before touching it again. If you break it, you will be paying for it.

    Your "lower head" looks like a tub spout to me.
