Victorian Monitor® 17 Series Shower Trim
I love the look of this and spent the extra money buying something nice, from a supposed to be great brand. Well not happy at all. This thing leaks to matter what you do. Come to your website for support, and find out lots of other people have this same problem. To top it off after spending the amount of money I did, now I need to buy a replacement part. NO Thanks! I will purchase something different from a different brand. The supposed cheap stuff I bought for my teenage sons bathroom we have not had any problems with and spent 1/4 of what on spent on this.

Two of three have developed severe leaking
We like the look of this shower head and the adjustable stream. Also like the easy-to-clean nozzles--just run your finger over the rubbery tips to remove water deposits. That said, for the price we were very surprised to find the outer shell made of plastic. And recently, after returning from a one-month vacation, we found that two of our three shower heads had developed severe leaking at the area where the two parts of the outer shell meet. There doesn't appear to be a user-replaceable o-ring or seal to fix the problem. Perhaps Delta support can provide an easy fix (and we'll be happy to change our review accordingly), otherwise we would advise others to avoid this shower head.

Lacking in quality, but looks great
This collection looks great but lacking in quality. After only one year the shower head leaks terribly and sprays out around the area where two pieces join together in order to adjust the spray. Also, the tub faucet has begun to drip constantly and the temperature adjustment dial is extremely hard to move. We also have the widespread lavatory faucet and it too has begun to drip. Purchasing this whole collection seems to have been quite an expensive mistake.

Great product BUT
Would like to see the temp control not be made of plastic.
The settings for water pressure are great.

Delta Shower Head Replacement
The shower head is the third one that was installed in a replacement to the original Moen shower head / tub faucet. The first two Delta faucets that were installed functioned so much better than the original Moen installtion that a third was purchased to upgrade the master walkin shower. Shower head delivers excellent spray patterns even at lower supply pressures (wtare supply is a deep well). Independent temperature/flow rate controls allows preferred temperature to be set and consistent temperature from shower-to-shower. Wonderful product when utilized in combination with the 1/2" rough in Delta valve.

Nice looking shower head.
Delta makes nice products for the money. This system has a nice look and feel with easy to operate water valve controls. I don't like multiple valves all over the wall making your shower look more like a boiler room. One muti-function handle on the shutoff valve makes this a very clean and decluttered shower system that is easy to use. Couple this with a 6 function diverter valve and you can have a very multi-functional shower system that has a clean design, looks good, is easy to use, and is affordable. The only negative is that the shower head itself doesn't have many muti-spray features. Still, I could have done much worse while spending way more money. You can always change the shower head if you want. 4 1/2 stars.

love the versitility
my new Delta shower system is a wonderful showering experience. I love the way I can regulate both the temperature of the water as well as the amount of water. I like to use less water while shaving my legs but want to keep the water very warm at the same time. This unit allows me to do that. And the 3 settings on the shower head let me dial just the right velocity. Wonderful.

Hard to find brass, nice product
I had a newer shower door, so changing to another metal than brass was not an option. This was the only brass trim kit that would work with our previous shower set, it is beautiful and I love the different settings on the showerhead.
