Rated 5 out of 5 by JBJr The Perfect Shower
We have owned Delta products before, and rely entirely on the brand. We purchased this shower had for dual purposes: a great shower experience, and to be able to wash inside the shower area and shower doors. Installation was a breeze. A bit of Teflon tape, hand tight all connections, and you are ready to go. We love the different settings and convenience of use.
We got the Bronze finish since it matches our other bathroom sets. Could not be happier. Also, the price paid at Lowe's and the Lifetime Warranty were very encouraging.
If you are considering getting one, think no further!

Rated 1 out of 5 by acg785 Fixed shower head leaks
We loved this shower head at first, but after only about a month of use, the fixed head started leaking at the seams. We are very disappointed that this fixture is leaking, especially as we are in a serious drought, & every drop counts. It is very discouraging, after all the work of our remodel, to have this failure.

This was an impulse buy. Normally I would do the research and find a quality product; but this looked good in the fancy display unit. The price should have been the clue that this is ALL plastic. I think Delta has a metal version for $200, compared to the $90 I paid for this one at the blue BB; the orange BB does not carry it.
(1) it was easy enough to install, no major issues (2) it works just fine (3) everything is plastic: shower head base, hand held shower head, & hose (4) there's no shower arm included - but the shower head is so large that you will not need a long arm. I think I bought a 6 inch - all METAL - shower arm (5) the color is nearly black; whereas, the other metal fixtures in this remodeled bath have a rich oil rubbed look to them. (6) the removable hand-held shower hose extension is VERY stiff; I think Delta will replace it if you complain. (7) the hose is 72 inches long, so it hangs down right to the tub drain. (8) the removable hand shower is firmly held in place so much so that I expect something to break. Fortunately, this device is in the guest bath, so it won't get daily use. For the money, it's provides a nice shower; just don't expect it to last if you use it everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GaryS Best shower head ever
I've had this shower system for over 2 weeks. No problems installing. The shower experience is better than I have ever had before. Extremely versatile. Best purchase I've made in years.
The only feature I would change is the location of the hose connection. I would put it on the side with a 90 deg. elbow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Donna13 Too much money for a plastic product that didn't even last 2 years
I bought this showerhead after seeing the video at Lowe's. It seemed like the spray would be strong enough to get my very thick hair clean. It has started leaking in two places. A plumber told us that the cartridge in the handle needed to be replaced along with some Teflon tape at the connection with the wall pipe. It was installed when we got our bathroom remodel in July 2013. It was not registered by them and they gave me no paperwork. Now, the Onyx shower needs to be redone and we don't know if we should just replace it with a better (no plastic) head or try to get a fix from you on your warranty. It also doesn't have the cord lined up straight down with the head, which I tried to adjust. When I did this is when it started leaking at top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonG Updated Experience - Hose Replacement
Back in January 2014, Delta supplied me with a free replacement Model #75588. My initial experience was poor due to a new design plastic hose that was extremely stiff. I replaced the plastic hose with a Delta metal stretchable hose and since that time I could not be happier with this showerhead. I want to be clear that the poor design rating is limited solely to the original plastic hose supplied with this showerhead. The metal replacement hose makes this a really great package and I would highly recommend it.

by mycmow A very nice design with some materials flaws.
This shower head design is a very nice concept and looks pretty good mounted. The pipe coming out of the wall should stand at least six inched off the wall to accommodate the size of this shower head. It installs easily and works very well.
Delta has always made good products. With price pressures in the market Delta seems to be using more materials that do not hold up to use, even in the short term. The most stressed part of a hand held shower head like this would be where the hose attaches to the showerhead handle or the other end of the hose. After seven months of typical use the PLASTIC connection simply snapped at the handle.
I've been looking for a replacement hose but, of course, the retailer doesn't stock these hoses. Here it to hoping Delta will send me a replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheMurf Great shower upgrade - Spa quality
Sleek design and simple instructions made the product easy to install. The multiple settings allow you to control the pressure of the spray which keeps everybody happy. You also can pull the massager hose away from the shower head and rinse off leisurely. I would strongly recommend this product. I will probably buy a second one for my main bathroom. I am completely satisfied.
