Rated 3 out of 5 by JayRay Just bought my second one because my first one broke
My husband and I bought this showerhead on 9/26/2014 and on 11/13/2014 the plastic part at the end of the hand held that appears to be metal broke/cracked. Before that we absolutely loved the showerhead and would have recommended it to everyone. However to have broken before 90 days was very disappointing. Luckily, Lowe's return policy is within 90 days so we returned it and bought another one. So on 11.14.14 my husband installed the new showerhead and we will see how long it last. If it doesn't last at leas 3-5 years it is simply not worth it and serves true to be poor quality. Please fix this Delta. I love the design but it is horrible quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tzetter Leaks at pivot joint
Installed in guest bath, not used often. Initially worked fine, now suddenly it leaks around the pivot behind the main shower head and sprays all over the wall. Everything is as tight as the plastic parts will allow. Have removed it and returned the old standard shower head to service which is working fine. The hand-held part of this can also be very tough to re-seat in the holder. It seems a lot of force is needed to click it into place otherwise it falls out onto the shower floor below. Also not a good thing for a plastic part to experience. Disappointed as I thought the brand name would mean higher quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bigtamw65 Plastic Parts Leak
I love the design features of the this shower head, but like most of the other reviewers, Delta should have invested a little more money on the parts they used for assembly. I have had this shower head a little less than six months and it leaks badly from the pivot joint. It has always had a slight leak and I probably should have returned it right after I got it. However, I enjoyed the shower enough to over look the small leak. Now it just has to be replaced. Delta has a great idea in this design, they just need to execute it with better parts!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bryan Works great but plastic has a strong smell
We bought this to replace our previous delta that lasted for a long time. The product itself is excellent and has great features but the plastic around the hose is very stiff and has a very strong (plastic) odor. I was trying to give it time to wear off but it's been about 2 months now and the smell is still overpowering. It's in our main bathroom and a bit of an embarrassment when we have guests over. I plan to replace it soon, we have lived with the smell for long enough. Hope to find a similar functioning replacement.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jason Cheap, brittle plastic
I'm on my second one of these, and it'll be the last. The first had been returned to the store and re-shelved with one of the plastic screw-on collars for the handheld head broken clean off. I took it back and picked up a brand-new model, brought it home and installed it (could not have been easier, by the way) and used it one time. A few days later I went to use it again, and discovered that the plastic collar connecting the hose to the (also plastic) valve had broken in half, exactly like the first one, except this time spraying water all over my bathroom walls.
What this tells me is that this isn't a faulty product, it's poor design and material choices, and this should be avoided at all costs. For now, I've reattached the builder-grade showerhead that came with the house. At least it's made of metal and has never leaked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HomeShower Shower Head Cracked
Up till now, this was a fantastic shower head. My wife and I used it every day for our us and our daughter. It was installed 14 months ago, and today it broke. The plastic tab used to adjust the shower settings completely broke off. Just doesn't seem meant to be used every day. But this was the reason we bought this one, easy to use with newborns. I will be installing a new one, but not sure if this Delta one is right for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wilsonstorm69 amazing shower head
i originally bought his product to assist with giving my large dog a bath. It turns out to be the best shower head i have ever owned.
It is very easy to install and does not change the water pressure in the water lines like alot of these models do.
And having an old house, that matters.
You can adjust the spray range and water intensity, and the hose is long enough to reach achy spots.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rhode The Cheap hose ruins everything
While the sprayer seems adequate, I cannot believe that something as simple as a poor connecting hose can ruin the entire experience. But it does. Significantly.
As noted by other reviewers, the connecting hose is incredibly stiff ( and does not soften with warm water).
Not only does it interfere by sticking out at you into the shower normally, but when you try to hold it in your hand, you have to fight just to maneuver into a usable position, and that often swings part of the hose through the shower curtain out of the shower! This is an everyday experience/aggravation, and it seems to indicate a major flaw in the product's design.
In retrospect, a close look at the store displays offers a hint: The display uses a shortened piece of the hose, and can be seen forcefully kinked into position.
I originally assumed it was a temporary issue that would pass in time. I was wrong. I couldn't be more disappointed.
