Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisfromLI Perfect For SItting or Standing in Shower!
Purchased last year as part of a basement bathroom remodel in the Brilliance Stainless finish. My husband needs to sit in the shower and this slide bar works very easily to adjust for people sitting or standing in the shower. The finish is great as it shows no water spots (a very important thing for us in terms of maintenance and cleaning). This was professionally installed by the plumber doing the construction. We are both pleased with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pjhinojos Nice looking but issue with bracket. Delta resolved.
I had a little problem with the bracket that holds the sprayer. It would not tighten enough and the sprayer would not hold position (it would flop forward). Because of this, the hose got a little bent/kinked holding the weight against the shower wall.
I just got off the phone with Delta and they were awesome. The customer service person was a real help and they are sending me replacement parts.
I hope the new one does not have the same problem. If so, they said they'll replace with a different model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CJ It's OK not top notch
This is an OK but not a top notch product. I have had to replace the shower head along with the hose and I have only owned it 3 years. The good thing is that this is a Delta product and if anything goes wrong call them up and they send you a new one at no charge. The biggest problem with this is the hose and the fact that the bar sits to close to the wall. If you are using this as your main shower head and need some adjustment to have it angled downward then the hose (which is stiff) will kink. I have decided to order a slide bar mechanism (part# RP61121RB) hoping this will fix the problem, although nothing says the diameter of the bar or whether this will fit my current product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SweetNana55 Extremely pleased
We recently updated our shower in our master bath and chose this slide bar handshower for the seated portion of our shower. I love both the look and the way it functions. The slide works flawlessly and holds the rather large showerhead securely. It adjusts the angle of the head and the height with ease, a simple twist of the handle. I had it professionally installed, but had no complaints from the plumber. I really think that I could have installed it myself, but it was part of a major renovation, so it made sense to have the plumber do it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DAJUDE Love the product, but...
I enjoy this product The removeable, adjustedable showerhead have caused longer showers. My water bill actually went up.
The product description on site needs to advise the purchase of a valve handle. Luckily, I figured it out, before the plumber's work date.
My carpenter and plumber struggled to figure out where pieces should be placed, Maybe a plan could be included.
It was installed in a shower kit. My carpenter had to come up with something to hold to the slide bar to the wall.
I recommend this product, just trying to be helpf others

Rated 4 out of 5 by kots Good, but one shortcoming
This bar shower is better than the previous Delta bar shower whose handle support was made of plastic and sloppily held the handle.
However, the handle support on this model is held by a friction tightened screw and if you choose to adjust the angle of the handle a few times the screw loosens and the handle droops and will need screw tightening over and over. We just set the angle and don't move it to preclude the problem.

I love the functionality and beauty of the style and finish of the product. The slide bar is metal, sturdy and, so far, easy to adjust the slide bar and the three shower streams. No leaks when diverted to the overhead shower head to the handheld. It works extremely well and I recommend it to others. Quality and great price. My contractor installed so there were no problems
