    Hi

    The unit that holds the shower head in position, is no longer doing this.

    It is a Aqualisa shower, is my best bet contacting them and getting a replacement part?

    Is there a way to fix it?

    I have attached a picture. But effectively it cannot support the weight of the shower head, meaning my bath taps are continually sprayed with water, rather than myself.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Cheers

    Will try to expose it and see if there is a screw that I can tighten.

    Is that the pinch grip shower holder?

    could just be the ratchet mechanism loose or broken.For some reason they made that showerhead holder over complicated they are a regular failure :(

    There around £15 to buy,some pipe dismantling will be required but depends on the model of the shower

    TT:D

    Yes that is causing the problem. Not pinching tight enough.

    Not the best solution but possibley wrapping some electricians tape around the head may restore the pinching action

    Yes I was thinking that might work.

    I had similar problem once and drilled hole through head and tightened it up with small nut and bolt. Use stainless if you can. Screenshot (192).png
