I was referring to the valves on the external shower, they are a bit awkward to use.

Red Dog, thanks for posting the info on the flex spout. I literally came to the site this evening to look for it, as I'd seen it in a picture someplace before, and there it was. Ordered.

I believe (hope) most of the big box hardware stores would carry the ball valve?

Thanks,

John

I always get a chuckle when there is an odd item that a seller stocks like this and they suddenly get a run on them. I imagine the eTrailer people wondering why these gooseneck spouts are blowing out the door.
Same when Pat posted those stainless hinges and we completely sold the company out of them in two weeks. Funny stuff.

Glad to be of service! I don’t have the ball valve on mine, so off to the store in the morning!

Words of caution:
Just be careful using these spouts and adding additional attachments. The metal quick disconnect is only supported by the thin plastic wall of the shower enclosure. I have seem them break in the past on other units, mainly by pulling or adding a long heavy attachment. The enclosure would be messy if it had to be replaced, I'm happy having and using it, but it can be broken if not careful.

A coiled hose with spray attachment similar to this.
