    Removable, probably. Easy is another question and am sure some are a pain in the neck(or other parts) to remove.

    I doubt this is a theoretical question about "all" shower arms, so how about a picture of your shower arm. That will help determine if yours is removable, since that's probably what your question really is about.

    @jsotola it must be yes. Everything is removable with enough force and the right type of saw. Reassemble-able after however...

Every and all are unforgiving words. I personally have never seen a shower arm in the US that wasn't removable. Typically they unscrew. Regardless of the type of supply line (usually copper) the fitting at the outlet is threaded to take a threaded shower arm. There may be some instances where shower arms are soldered onto the supply line but I've never seen it and I think it's against code in the US. If I'm wrong, I'm sure one of the experts here will correct me.

    Note that it may have been installed very tightly by a gorilla or may have corroded over time and is not somewhat locked into place. Use caution trying to extract it because it can break or you can tear the elbow mounted to the wall off.
