Bathroom stall shower

I recently bought a home where the plumber installed the shower head way too high up on the wall. Is there any hand held shower faucet that I can get installed without ripping out and moving the existing shower arm?

Most handheld showers use a hose to connect from the existing shower arm down to the hand held option.  Some units come with attachment points on the shower arm, but I believe that you are looking for a unit that has a hook that you can mount where ever is comfortable for you.

Am installing a Moen hand held shower ("Propel"). The instructions say I should install a backflow preventer. Where does that get installed? Inside the wall, or on the shower fixture itself?

Just buy a backflow preventer and install it in-between the pipe coming out of the wall and the shower head. Most (all?) shower heads have 1/2? standard pipe thread. Home Depot sells a backflow preventer with 1/2? standard pipe thread for $6.97.
Good luck and hope this helps.

What to do if i can't stop the water flowing from the shower spout and there's little water pressure coming from the shower head and a hand held shower?

One rule I live by: more parts, more problems. Sounds to me that the plumbing/valves were not insalled properly. If you hired a profesional plumber, have them fix it. I am a licensed profesional plumber and I offer a 1 year warranty on all my work. If the contractor did the work and does not hold a plumbing license, that person is still responsible and may have to suffer legal consequenses.

I just installed the valve new. I have a shoewe head and a hand held that feed from the unit. It was intended to 1) serve the shower heas alone, 2) serve the hand held unit alone, 3) put water to both...

Assuming that your two heads are fed from the typical curved wall mounted shower pipe, what you need is a diverter valve. Removed both heads till it's down to just that curved pipe. Get a diverter valve from a plumbing supply store. Tell the sales folks that you want to install a diverter valve so that in one position, the hand held receives water and in the other, it cuts the hand held and puts it to the reg. shower head instead. They should give you a "T" sort of fitting. The female threads of this screws into that curved shower pipe. Then you will find two male thread ends. These connect to both your shower heads. Finally there will be a push/pull knob that is operated to control which head gets the water.

Make sure you fitted the rubber O ring on the end of the shower flexible hose. That will seal the water pipe.

Shower - Rain head won't turn off so hand held can be used solo.

Probably the fitting is not working properly. Please change the fitting.

I I have a 3 way bath/shower/overhead shower mixer valve to fit and am not sure where the pipes should go, there is a hot and cold feed in, but only 2 feeds out, I need feeds for 1. bath filler, 2....

When installing a flexishower head, install it in front of the actual shower head with a diverter switch. If you try to operate two shower heads at once, you may suffer poor water pressure. There are handheld shower sets sold which are installed to existing shower assemblies with ease. Rememer to use plumber's tape and protect your stainless steel by wrapping you pliers teeth in electrical tape.
