Delta Single Setting Shower Head
How excited can you get over a shower head?
Strangely, i'm kindof excited.. well ok, I'm very pleased let's say that. I think this was the product used in a Mexican resort hotel I stayed in recently. It works just as advertized. It is clearly cutting my water consumption and the quality of the shower spray is very very good. It doesn't feel like a typical low flow head with that stinging spay. They have managed to get the larger droplet feel and i have plenty of hot water left to shave. Only thing remaining to be seen is when the lousy water i have needs to be cleaned from it will it hold up to hard water cleaning solutions. It's a tad costly but this is the first one i've bought in 20 years.

I live in an apartment complex where we had all our shower heads replaced with this unit. I HATE IT! I have shoulder length, thick, curly hair. It now takes my over 10 minutes to rinse the conditioner out of my hair. I also have to turn the hot water on all the way and the cold water on only slightly in order to have a warm shower and then remember to turn on the cold water so that I don't burn my feet when I turn off the shower. Also, my shower times has now tripled and my level of frustration has heightened as it takes so long to get clean.
I would not recommend this unit to anyone. Leave it in the store and move on.

Previous complaints are meritless
I upgraded to this showerhead from a 20-yr-old, 3.5 GPM head that provided a great showering experience. The Delta passed the "wife test" in flying colors -- I didn't tell her that I changed the head, and while she did notice a difference, she didn't complain -- all she said was that the pressure felt different.
Coming from a water-wasting 3.5 GPM to this, there was an obvious pressure decrease, but I got used to it within a minute. Otherwise, it provides a great showering experience. Not sure why the others complained. I suspect they had significant plumbing pressure deficiencies specific to their houses that compounded the pressure loss that I felt.
Highly recommend this head to anyone seeking to conserve water while enjoying a great showering experience. While no conservation showerhead can ever perfectly replicate a 3.5 GPM flow, this comes closest.

Just what we wanted..
We wanted a truely low flow quality shower head and got it......no use throwing good water down the drain that you do not really need anyway. Item went on easily enough and worked just fine. Tried to use teflon tape to seal the threads but, for some reason, would not seal perfectely. (Probably me..) I ended up useing a little plumbers putty and wolla...no problems...

Good for households with low water pressure
We have low water pressure and the Delta RP46384 works really well - a strong shower (but not painfully strong) that is not too misty and the water stays hotter than with our previous shower head. A very impressive invention.

Don't buy it
Product is cheaply made, doesn't seal well, and drips while in use - spray hits part of the faucet head and drips instead of sprays. I returned the unit disappointed.

Best shower head I've ever used! Feels great and saves water as a side note.
