Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unusable with gravity flow Buy something better Three parts make up the score of this review Summary: 0 (zero) * - Hose and shower head with gravity fed system is completely unusable 2 (two) * - Hose and shower head with pressurized (pumped, power shower) is usable but very poor 2 (two) * - Rail and riser is of poor design and quality and the riser will break. Detail: This was bought as a replacement for a very old rail and riser, and a more recent hose and shower head on a gravity fed shower with a water company water saving device attached. The water saving claims of this Grohe kit was similar to the device already fitted, so there was no reason to believe that this set up would not work with a gravity fed system, and Grohe claim that it will. Rail and Riser/ Shower head holder Don’t be fooled by the pictures, this is not the luxury, quality and chunky 25mm pole that you would expect at this price, it is an odd 22mm diameter. Now that may not seem like a lot, but when fitted it does look a bit low rent. And whilst we are on fitting, the screws are 100mm (4”) long to hold up a few grams (ounces) of lightweight pole and plastic supports – why? Well it becomes clearer when you look at the riser/shower head holder. It really cheap plastic and the finish is poor, but the real issue is its almost unmovable. To change the angle of the shower head you have to apply so much pressure, the shower head flexes. It is awful and will break, and because you will have to use Grohe parts, will be very expensive to replace. Hose and shower head: The shower head is a substantial and hefty item seemingly of good quality and the hose has metal end connectors which is a quality touch. The problem comes in trying to use it. Connected to a gravity fed shower, so little water comes out that it barely misses running straight down the shower rail. Getting underneath it to have a shower is impossible. Obviously, the water saving is not done intelligently, but simply the equivalent of turning the tap off. And before anyone thinks that that is obvious for a gravity system, it works perfectly well with other water saving components including water board attachments, and other water saving shower heads. Part of the problem is the head itself with too many holes that are too large which will always cause low pressure. In addition the hose is small bore which makes the pressure even lower. I did try this on our pressurised shower as well to compare, and frankly while you could shower under it, you wouldn’t want to. With the Grohe hose and our old Triton shower head the shower is much better but still not great. Replace both with the Triton hose and head, plus the water board water saver and the shower is fine. So eventually the conclusion is that the Grohe shower hose and head are worthless and bin worthy. I cant recommend this set as while the rail might be just about usable, the hose and head are not.

What is the length, width and diameter of the vertical metal bar?

I need to replace one that has broken, so I want to fit a new one into an existing fitting.
