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.

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.

Like all the other reviews...it leaks at the diverter!!!
My wife has been asking me to replace the shower head in our kids bathroom with a unit that included a hand shower for quite awhile now. I finally decided on this unit because of its versatility and ability to mount lower so the kids can reach it. What a mistake! I followed the installation instructions to the letter and, when I tested the unit, water streamed out of where the diverter screws into the shower arm. I checked it for tightness and it was good, so I unscrewed it and the rubber washer with the screen in it was inside the shower arm and appeared misshapen and slightly damaged. Almost like it is not the correct size? I reconnected, tried again, with the same result. Also, plumbers tape was applied so this is not the reason for the failure. I jumped online to look up this unit and what do I see? Poor review after poor review stating the exact issue I am having. What can be done to fix this?

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.

Great design, poor workmanship
Overall, this shower head would be great, EXCEPT for the fact that water leaks from the diverter/shower mount assembly. Not where I made the connections mind you, but at the pivot/swivel point of the assembly itself. Normally, it's just a small, slow drip, but heaven help you if you adjust the spray setting on the attached shower head. It's like a plugged firehose at that point. I'm going to disassemble the entire unit....again...and see if there is anything I can do to fix it myself. If not, well the trash comes on two days, so it won't be in the way too long.
