Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta 51900 1.75 GPM Multi Function Handshower Package with Slide Bat, Hose, Holder and ActivTouch this is another great Delta product. I am a contractor and use this handshower frequently as well as many other Delta Products. I have never been disappointed with the product. It is good quality and functions as claimed. My plumber finds the product easy to install and appreciates the constant quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta Handheld Shower Grab Bar This is a great solution for those that want a handheld shower added to their bath. We have used this particular model in many of our custom homes. This is a stylish design available in multiple finishes to compliment any bath. The advantage of this particular model is two-fold-- it acts as a grab bar, which enhances safety, and it slides up and down for ease of use. Many of our new homes are being designed for aging-in-place, so we always recommend this product to coordinate with our other Delta faucet selections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to our shower This is well made and looks great. I love the flexibility of using it as a 2nd shower head or a handheld. Exactly what I expected based on the description.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking and sturdy shower bar I needed an ADA grab bar and figured I might as well find one that works with the handheld shower. This fit the bill and looks attractive. The shower head is easy to move up and down, although the piece to move it take up a lot of visual space. The shower head has good flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking fixture! Great looking fixture , easy to install and most importantly covered the holes to previous unit. I understand every installation is different but specs were true to size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite enough water pressure I just had a knee replacement and this has been great. I had it installed with a grab bar on the side of the bath and I have felt completely safe. Water pressure is less than the original showerhead and I am going to get a part that allows me to use either. I had hoped this would be a replacement but, no.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functions, but water pressure is an issue There's absolutely nothing technically or aesthetically wrong with this handshower package - it's just that if the water pressure isn't sufficient, the overall effect is rather underwhelming. Everything arrived timely and nothing was missing.

How do you turn it on and off and adjust the temperature? Do you need a separate component?

Asked by: Sarah
Thank you for your question, Sarah! To use this hand shower and slide bar, you will need to also install a universal rough in valve like the R10000-UNBX along with a diverting valve like the R11000. You could alternatively install a universal valve along with a 3-way shower arm diverter instead. https://www.deltafaucet.com/product-comparison?modelNumber=R11000&modelNumber=R10000-UNBX https://www.deltafaucet.com/search-results?searchTerm=3+way+diverter Best regards, Edward

What is the depth of the assembled unit? The technical specifications list length and width, but not depth. I'd need to know how far from the wall the unit, with the hand shower attached, will come out from the wall.

Asked by: Mary B
Hi, Meda! Thank you for your question. The Delta 51900 depth measures approximately 7.4" from the wall to the furthest point of the hand shower. Best Regards, Rosanna
