Cleaning the metal surfaces

What do you recommend for cleaning water spots off the metal surfaces? Soap and water isn't sufficient. As an experiment, I tried a little SoftScrub on a soft cloth on an inconspicuous corner, and it did clean it up nicely. But given the warning against using abrasives I wanted to see what you recommend.

Answer: 
Hi Andy, Thank you for your question. We recommend the following to maintain the finish on your faucet.
Always blot dry any water from faucet surface. Allowing water to evaporate on the surface can lead to build up of mineral deposits. Cleaning with a damp non-abrasive sponge and buffing it dry with a clean soft cloth should help keep your product looking beautiful. To remove water spots, use warm water and a soft, damp cloth. Hard water stains may be removed using a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Make certain that you rinse thoroughly with water afterward.

If additional cleaning is required, all of our finishes may be cleaned with the following household cleaners: Formula 409® Antibacterial All Purpose Cleaner, Fantastik® All Purpose Cleaner, or Windex® Original Glass Cleaner, when used according to the manufacturers' instructions for use.

Avoid using the following which can damage your finish:

Avoid industrial cleaners and abrasive cleaners, such as those used for toilet bowls, green Scotch-Brite heavy duty scrub sponges, Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner and Lysol Basin Tub, Soft Scrub, and Tile Cleaner.
Avoid products that state on the label that they remove tarnish and rust, and those containing hydrofluoric, hydrochloric and/or phosphoric acids and caustic agents.
Avoid harsh abrasives or polishes
Avoid bleach-based cleaners

Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
I'm the original poster of this question and I should clarify that I was referring to the stainless finish.

In response to the answer posted above, none of the solutions suggested were effective in removing water spots. I ended up using Soft Scrub on a sponge (sponge only, not an abrasive pad), in very small amounts, slowly increasing the pressure until it started taking off the water spots. I was careful and went slowly and it didn't seem to affect the finish, but I can see why you generally wouldn't recommend people use abrasive products.

That said, Delta needs to go back to the drawing board on this finish. It's unrealistic to expect people to either blot dry their faucet controls after every shower, or accept water spots that can't be removed without damaging the finish. No one wants to be drying off the faucet handle after every shower. It's going to get spots and you need to make it with a finish that's tough enough to handle a cleaner that will remove water spots without sustaining damage.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. To be able to use these features, you will need to purchase Delta Faucet model # R11000 diverter valve and T11953 6-setting 3-port diverter trim. This will allow you to use each feature individually or 2 of the features together. You will not be alble to use all three features together.

We also recommend the R10000-UNBXHF for the T17T253 trim package. This will give you a better water flow with all of your features.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # T17T253 can have a handheld shower and body sprays added to it. We recommend using the R11000 diverter rough along with the T11953 6-setting 3-port diverter trim.

We have a couple of handshowers to recommend. Model 55530 is a wall-mount handshower, and model 57530 is a slide bar handshower. Either handshower will need model 50570 wall elbow.

We also can recommend a couple of body sprays. We have an H2Okinetic spray at 1.8 gpm in model 50101 and a 2.0 gpm body spray in model 50150.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # T17T253 can have a hand held shower added to it. We recommend using the Delta Faucet model R11000 diverter rough with the T11853 diverter trim. There are two hand held showers with this series. Delta Faucet model # 55530 is a wall mount handshower and 57530 is a slide mount handshower that comes with a wall bar. Using either one of those will require a wall elbow which is model 50560.
