Use Slide Bar Hand Shower as Only Shower Head?

I want to use this as the only shower head in my walk-in shower. I am not sure what other products I need to make it functional. For example, does it come with a valve (?) with handle to turn the water on/off. This is a stand-alone shower, and there is no bathtub and no stationary shower head to switch back and forth between. The water just needs to be directed to the handheld shower. I suspect I need to order some other parts to go with this hand shower. Would you please itemize what they would be (including part numbers---stainless steel, please).

Hi EmiLee,

Thank you for your question! To run this hand shower you will need an R10000 rough-in valve, trim kit, and a wall elbow such as the 50560-SS.

Does the shower have a tilt adjustment?

Does the shower slide holder have a tilt adjustment to control the direction of the water... or is it fixed and slides only up and down on the bar?

Hi Floyd, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not stock a 31" slide bar. We have 2 models at 30-1/2" but they are not available in the oil rubbed bronze finish, only chrome.

Answer: 
Hi Jerry,

Thank you for your question. When installing your Delta Faucet model 51508, you will need a diverter valve to be able to use it with your stationary showerhead. The four-port valve is probably our rough-valve R10000-UNBX and this is used to turn the water on and off.

You cannot use this to divert the water to your handheld because you will have shower rise. We recommnend purchasing the R11000 diverter valve with the matching trim to your showerhead.

Thanks.

Elbow Height & appropriate with 18017-XO?

I have a shower wall stacked with the following:

Typical Shower Head - 84"
18017-XO Diverter / Shower spray - 50"
T14297-LHP (TYP SHOWER / MIXER) - 42"

Questions:
Is the 'XO' cabable of supporting a hand shower in conjunction with a shower head and body spray?
Is there a 'good' or recomended height for the elbow?
Is a standard 'drop ear' rough in used for the elbow connection?

Thanks!

Hi Eric, Thank you for your question. The 18017-XO trim when combined with the R1827-XO rough will support the fixed showerhead, body sprays, and handheld showerhead. Mount the elbow in relationship to the slide bar that has the hose hanging in visually pleasing manner. The drop ear can be used to secure the elbow connection.
Thanks,
Dave

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 51508 is made as a slide bar. We do not recommend it as a grab bar for anyone. We do manufacture grab bars with showerheads.

My plumber put the handheld in backwards. Is there a way to reverse it and put the handheld on the other side? He installed it on the right side, and i would like to change it on the left side. Is that possible, or does he need to order a new slide bar?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 51508 does not break down into separate parts so if you need to replace the slider, you will need to replace the whole peice.
