Experience a better shower with the control and flexibility of a Delta® hand shower. Great for showering yourself or your loved ones and pets, as well as for keeping your shower and tub clean. Designed to look like new for life, Brilliance® finishes are developed using a proprietary process that creates a durable, long-lasting finish that is guaranteed not to corrode, tarnish or discolor. The pause setting gives you ample space for shaving, lathering and other shower tasks, then easily restarts the water with the temperature where you left off. This spray setting helps you conserve water, so you can worry less about depleting your supply of hot water - and you help the environment too. Delta WaterSense labeled faucets, showers and toilets use at least 20% less water than the industry standard—saving you money without compromising performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and classic We've had this hand shower in our shower for several years and have been very pleased. We use it primarily to wash the dogs and clean the shower as we also have a standard shower head. It's great and works perfectly. Very easy to adjust and stays well in any position.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not easy to install, but beautiful when done Don't forget to get the additional part Delta 50560. Additionally, you may need another part - most shower pipes are bent after they come out of the wall (so that a fixed showerhead can point downwards). You'll need to unscrew that, and then buy another straight short one that screws in, at just the right length (it took me three trips to the hardware store to get the right one). Then, I installed it as indicated with "this side up". The problem was that I put the hand crank on the right, which caused the showerhead to spray upwards, and not down towards the person taking the shower. Make sure the hand crank is on the left. After all is said and done, it's really nice. (it should be, it's really expensive)

What components do I need for shower only (no tub)

I'd like to use this as my only shower head in a standard shower setup (no tub). What components do I need? I like the T11800-PB trim (do I need a separate handle?). I will then need the R11000 diverter rough in valve and dome strainer (RP7430PB). What else do I need?
Asked by: Molly
Thank you for your question, Molly. The R11000 and T11800-PB are for a 3-setting diverter that switches flow between shower components. Instead, you will need an R10000 rough-in valve and a 13/14, 17, or 17T series trim kit. Unfortunately, we do not make a valve-only trim kit in the Polished Brass finish. You can find our selection of Polished Brass trim kits here: https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/showering/tub-and-shower-faucets?facetFinish=polishedbrass Best regards, Jon

Can water be shut off at shower head?

Asked by: Gerald
Hi, Gerald! Thank you for your question. The Delta 51708 hand shower unit does include a pause setting. The pause setting is not a positive shut off as it reduces water to a trickle, giving you space for shaving, lathering and other shower tasks while maintaining your temperature settings. Best Regards, Rosanna
