Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice We purchased this to go along with a railhead in our new shower. The handheld is great. Love that it is adjustable up and down. We paired this with the cross handles for a classic look. Very happy with the fit and finish. I buy all Delta faucets. They stand behind their product, and reasonable in price compared to the competition. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delta 51708 Hand shower package This is a great product: attractive, easy to use. However, due to California anti-skald rules. This product always mixes in some water from the cold water side. It is impossible to run only water from the hot water side. This raises my electrical bill if I want a decently warm shower. Plumbers cannot defeat the mixing mechanism to correct this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Handheld Shower Very stylish design, quality build and it fit in perfectly with decor of bathroom. We install many vertical bar handheld showers as we do a lot of handicap modification work and this is among the nicest I have seen. Our customer was extremely pleased with finish and functionality. Would highly recommend again to future customers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bottom Cap won't stay in but will purchase again. I've used this hand shower on several jobs and is my go-to hand shower. I installed it in one of our personal showers. The bottom end cap won't stay in and is laying about in the shower at all times. A small amount of adhesive would probably fix the issue on one of my motivated days (lol) but I don't think about it until I get in the shower. I plan on purchasing again for another personal shower.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hand shower mount bracket. I have the chrome Model 51708 and the hand shower holder bracket has broken and will not hold the shower head up. When the hand shower head is placed in the bracket it tilts and rotates to the ground. I can not find the replacement part # for the Model 51708 chrome hand shower mount bracket. Would this product be covered under the lifetime Delta warranty program. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

How can the handshower holder be tilted to aim down a little more? It seems very tight and don't want to break it.

Asked by: Rick
Thank you for your question, Rick! The mount will tilt further, but the hand shower may not sit properly in the mount beyond a 45 degree angle. Best regards, Tanya

What are the various parts made of, especially the detachable shower head?

Asked by: snows
Hi, Snows! Thank you for your question. The Delta 51708-SS Shower Unit is made of both metallic and non-metallic parts. The hand shower is non-metallic. All of our current hand showers are non-metallic. This helps prevent heat transfer that could result in scalding and reduce weight. Non-metallic parts are also beneficial in that they do not rust or corrode. Please know that all of our products are tested to ensure long-lasting use and have a Lifetime Limited Warranty. Best Regards, Rosanna

Installation flexibility

Can the slide bar be installed so that the handle (knob) is on the right hand side of the bar?
Asked by: Joy
Hi Joy, Thank you for your question. The model 51708 Slide bar handshower can be installed with the knob to either side simply by loosening the knob and placing the mount in the desired position. Thanks, Dave

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.
