Well, this was an unfortunate surprise for my daughter, while she was taking her shower this morning!
While adjusting the shower head, the whole thing broke off in her hand!
Handily, I happened to be using the bathroom while she was in there, so she could just pass me the parts and pieces, then take a bath, instead.
The part that broke is actually a small piece that comes off, and it’s a standard part, so it will be easy to find and replace. Our shower head is actually something we brought with us during the move, as it is a reduced mobility shower head. The hose is extra long, so that it can be used while sitting in a bath chair, and there is a shut off at the bottom of the shower head’s handle, instead of at the wall end of the hose. That would be a bit harder to replace, if it ever broke!
Given how hard and iron rich our well water is, this would be a good time to give the shower head and hose a soak in some CLR!
