    I'm building a steamer shower and want to have an overhead rainfall type fixture along with a hand held unit on a side wall....my question is, can I install the rainfall showerhead in a slightly sloped ceiling...ceiling is slightly angled toward the back wall to allow steam condensate runoff...(slope is about 1 inch per foot and the shower is 4 feet wide) hope this made sense...thanks, Nick C.

    Why not? You'd need to be extra careful about sealing around to pipe to prevent steam from escaping into the attic and ruining things, but other than that...I dont' see a problem.

    As long as the shower pipe is perpendicular/vertical so the head does not slope, there should be no problem with it.
