Delta Five Spray Massage Hand Shower/Shower Head Unit
Looked good in box at Lowes but NOT
Was not looking to replace my shower head but I came across this Delta anywhere mount shower faucet. Installed the Delta model 75530D today. The diverter leaks at the connector before the female connection to the shower stem and is not tight. If you adjust the diverter it sprays water everywhere. The diverter slowly leaks at the shower stem connection even after tightening it. It was installed with plumbers tape. The shower wand if installed on the diverter makes the diverter lean to the right. Wish I had the reviews for this faucet first. This faucet should be recalled and those who purchased it should get their money back. 3 photos uploaded, 2 others would not upload.

Regretting my purchase
I purchased the Delta Two showers in one shower head, model 75530D and despite the leaking kept using the product until the plastic mount that holds up the shower head broke and cracked the glass on my shower door, so now not only do I have to find another either another plastic mount, which I have no idea where I'd find that or just purchase a whole new shower head :(

Connector piece broke shortly after a year of use.
I purchased this product for its design. I loved the sleek look and the idea of functionality of this product. Installation was somewhat troublesome w/ leaky connections in several places, which I was able to fix w/ plenty of tape. However, shortly after a year, the plastic piece between the hose and the shower head broke in half! I'm very disappointed in the quality of this product.

Was Not What I expected
Having 2 dogs that need regular baths I went looking for a shower head that had a hose. I found this product and since it had a stationary shower head and one with a hose I figured it would be just what I needed. I realized there was a problem when I tried to install the Diverter/Shower mount. I could not get it to tighten completely. I tried with the Plumbers tape and with out and it would just not tighten up completely. Every way I tried did not stop the spraying of water from the connection.I had to end up connecting the hose attachment directly to the shower arm. It will work but I could have done the same for a lot less.

My last shower head/hand shower developed a leaky diverter over several years. Saw this a Lowe's and was sold on the anywhere mount for the hand shower and that it came with another shower head. It was easy to install. When I tested the shower, I noticed it was leaking where the female nut is attached to the diverter. I even redid the plumbers tape and re-positioned the shower head. No matter what I tried it was still leaking at the diverter. So I ended up removing the diverter and just placed the shower head on to use for the night. I really wished I had seen the reviews on this product before having purchased it. I hate the hassle of having to return things.

Poor Quality -Leaks
i bought this unit from Lowes as a Christmas gift to my wife. It is almost entirely plastic with a flash chrome finish -not what I would expect from Delta! I am mechanically proficient - and installed the shower head with Teflon tape. The Diverter valve on the shower head leaks behind the fitting that attaches to the water pipe at the wall. I went back to Lowes and purchased the same model of showerhead and re-installed the diverter valve -it leaked exactly as the first one did. there is obviously a problem with the manufacturing tolerances on the diverter valve to wall connection - it should not leak when thread tape is used and teh showerhead is tightened with a wrench.

Product failed within the first day
In less than one day, the product began to leak from the female connection to the shower arm. It doesn't leak from the thread side because I used pipe seal tape and tightened it well. It leaks from the other side of the connection. Not an install error issue. The diverter also spins somewhat freely and feels loose. Not what I expect from delta.

Diverter will not seal/ leaks!
After securely tightening the diverter assembly to the shower arm, the diverter freely swivels at the diverter side of the connection and leaks terribly! Wish I had read the comments before purchased this model :(
Seems like perhaps the wrong washer was supplied or the washer is not thick or resilient enough to make a watertight connection.
