I am replacing the shower head we currently have with a new one. The existing shower head used a 1/2" "S" shaped pipe with male threads on each end. The new connection is designed to end up flush with the wall and has just about 3/4" of thread exposed, but the connection inside the wall is in there about 1 1/4". I got a 1/2" male/male nipple and a 1/2" female/female connector, but that ends up being too long - it adds about 2".
Not sure how I can connect this without it being too long or too short. I also don't think I can move the connection inside the wall, as it is attached to the studs, and I don't want to take out tile, etc.
