    OK, so i've to an electric shower fitted over the bath. just a usual wall mounted one (see photo of installation)

    [​IMG]

    problem is the riser is fitted in a way that even when it's pushed to the highest possible position it's too low for my height. i don't really want to have to un-do the riser and move it physically up, as that'll leave holes in the existing tiling (i assume, as it was fitted already when i came here).

    are they are extensions or similar that can be fitted to the existing riser to make the shower reach higher?

    i'd like to be able to stand under the shower without having to stoop :) (i'm 6' and it currently sit at about the same height).

    I've already said that's not the preferred solution (I did specifically say that in the opening post)

    Looking at the picture, the Dwarf who fitted it has kindly drilled on a grout line and if he's used red plugs just maybe there is not too much tile drilled out so a bit of blending with sandpaper and new white grout and a longer riser might just work.
