Ok I am re tiling the bathroom and want to replace the shower riser rail. I was going to go for a stainless steel one but cant find one with all stainless (brackets and all) so as with many things have decided its just as well to buy - use - and bin, done this with nonstick frying pans - no matter how much I spend on one - its knackered soon enough, so now just buy cheep enough to bin when it s done in.
Sorry - back to the subject, so just going to replace when looking crap but what is the standard fixing hole distance on a riser rail so I can easily rep[lace in the future.

Well that has to be the longest question needing a simple answer :eek:

There isn't a standard length of riser bar, even with the same shower manufacturer. If the next replacement is too long, you can cut a bit off the chrome bar with a hacksaw. If too short - you're stuck. ;)
Companies like Triton, Mira etc take great pleasure in changing all the spec on their products, just to please us when it's time to replace them. Maybe they are under the impression that their showers last a lot longer than they actually do.

Thanks for the info.

Ok then so my next question is who makes the best quality ones, I only need the riser rail and brackets and not the handset.
A stainless steel one would be good
