Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great. Only con is the hand shower is very heavy. Recommend making shower head smaller (it won't make it less effective) and lighter. The hand held shower head is way too heavy. My grandkids and wife have a little difficulty using it. I assume that an elderly frail person would also have problems using it.

Purchased this shower head and find the water pressure extremely low. Very disappointing. Does the shower head have restricted and if so how many?

Asked by: BarbaraBelle
Hello BarbaraBelle, Thank you for your question regarding the Delta Premium 5-Setting Slide Bar Hand Shower. I am very sorry to hear that the hand shower wand feels as if it has extremely low pressure and I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. This hand shower wand has been designed to dispense a maximum of 2.5 gallons of water per minute at 80 psi, which is the highest allowable gallon per minute (GPM) flow rate that we currently offer. If you would like to test your model to ensure that you are receiving the full 2.5 GPM, please fill a pitcher or bucket for one minute and measure the amount of water the unit dispenses to be certain the model is dispensing 2.5 GPM. If you are receiving less than 2.5 GPM, please soak the full shower head and hand held wand in a solution of 50/50 white vinegar and water for a few hours to break down any debris which may have built up in the shower head during the installation process or over time in general and make sure to flush out the head by running warm water through the unit for a few minutes. I hope this helps to improve the amount of pressure you receive from the wand, although if you are still not receiving the full 2.5 GPM or if we may be able to assist you with anything else going forward, please do not hesitate to give us a call on our warranty line at 800-345-3358. Thank you, Brandy Delta Faucet Company Customer Service

How do you use the pause feature?

Asked by: anonymous123
Hello anonymous123, Thank you for your question regarding the Delta Premium 5-Setting Slide Bar Hand Shower and I am happy to assist you today. To access the pause feature, you will need to turn the outer rim of the spray face in order to divert through all the settings until you get to the pause spray setting. This setting will slow the flow of water to a trickle, allowing you time to lather, shave or complete other various showering tasks while maintaining your temperature settings. I hope this information is helpful! Please feel free to give us a call at 800-345-3358 if we can assist you with absolutely anything else going forward. Thank you, Brandy Delta Faucet Company Customer service

Does "UP" have to be up?

I am installing the 51508 in a shower remodel. The shower bar is labeled with an "up" direction which places the slide bar knob on the left and the handheld holder on the right. However I can see no technical reason it could not be installed "upside down" in order to have the knob on the right and the handheld holder on the left. What are the ramifications of installing it upside down in order to have the knob on the right?
Asked by: DJR49
Dear DJR49, Thank you for your question. The slide bar of the Delta Traditional Hand Shower 51508-SS, doesn't need to be installed upside down for the knob/handle to be installed on the right. You can just turn or install the slide mount how you want it on the bar. Best regards, Tanya

Does the shower have a tilt adjustment?

Does the shower slide holder have a tilt adjustment to control the direction of the water... or is it fixed and slides only up and down on the bar?
Asked by: Larry
Hi Larry, Thank you for your question. The hand shower mount can tilt forward and back. Best regards, Jon

Use Slide Bar Hand Shower as Only Shower Head?

I want to use this as the only shower head in my walk-in shower. I am not sure what other products I need to make it functional. For example, does it come with a valve (?) with handle to turn the water on/off. This is a stand-alone shower, and there is no bathtub and no stationary shower head to switch back and forth between. The water just needs to be directed to the handheld shower. I suspect I need to order some other parts to go with this hand shower. Would you please itemize what they would be (including part numbers---stainless steel, please).
Asked by: EmiLee
Hi EmiLee, Thank you for your question! To run this hand shower you will need an R10000 rough-in valve, trim kit, and a wall elbow such as the 50560-SS.

i need a longer slide bar, my old slide bar is 31"

I purchased the 51508 set up. I need an oil rubbed bronze set up that is 31" tall
Asked by: floyd
Hi Floyd, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not stock a 31" slide bar. We have 2 models at 30-1/2" but they are not available in the oil rubbed bronze finish, only chrome. Thanks, Dave
