Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shower unit ADA and easy to use, beautiful for all Gorgeous shower unit ADA but looks like a luxurious shower item. the Shower head moves up and down with ease, and the elegant grab bar looks more a spa item than an ADA grab bar. Great for the whole family to use, the shower head itself is lightweight and easy to hold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Combo grab bar and handshower Product satisfied requirements for project. Overall quality ok, but question whether slide bar adjustment clamp will hold up very long due to plastic parts and awkward design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubber/plastic gasket parts in the clamp deteriorate, and there are no replacement parts. As these rubber/plastic gaskets come apart, the shower head becomes impossible to move without taking it apart and removing part of the gasket. Eventually the shower head has to be use at only one height. And there are no replacement parts available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality item Installed this in a shower for my 90 year old Dad so he would have something strong to hang on to while transferring to the shower seat. Works like a charm. Heavy duty, well made, multiple shower spray functions are a plus. Nice design does not look like a handicap bar.

Trying out the 51900 for the first time on installation. The Pause (II) button seems to lower the flow slightly but does not STOP it. It is the single button on the water side of the handle? Do I have a defective activtouch handle? Please advise.

Asked by: loveh2o
Hello loveh2o, Thank you for your question regarding the Delta ActivTouch® 9-Setting Hand Shower with Traditional Slide Bar / Grab Bar and I am happy to assist you today. The Pause feature on the hand shower reduces the flow of water to a trickle, allowing you to conserve water while doing tasks such as lathering up or shaving your legs, while maintaining your temperature settings, without allowing water pressure to build up in your pipes. This is not a positive shut-off. If we can assist you with anything else going forward, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 800-345-3358. Thank you, Brandy
