    Guys,

    I recently broke apart my shower and one particular fitting I really could not take apart from the pipe, so I'm thinking to just simply replace it. Having a really hard time finding this.

    My shower might be a bit complicated, but I have the following set up:
    1. Rainfall shower at the top
    2. 4 jets that just shoot out from the wall
    3. Handheld showerhead which a on/off switch
    4. A mixing valve for temperature
    5. Divert valve from handheld to the rainfall, and to the 4 jets

    The problem is, the on/off valve for the handheld showerhead is also the main on/off for the shower. So I installed a simple copper male pipe which now sticks out (sealed temporarily), but ultimately i need an off/on switch with 1 simple spout that i can connect to a handheld showerhead. But that on/off spout needs to actually be sealed 100%, not some cheap plastic that i see in home depot as it doesn't seal and the pressure from the shower water ends up leaking... given this is my main switch, i need it to work 100%.

    Does anyone know where i can find something like this? So basically an on/off switch with 1 spout for a standard handheld showerhead.

    Thank you

    This is basically the fitting/valve i need to replace... simply lever that turns the water on with a spout that i can connect a showerhead to.
