Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shower head! I received this shower head and immediately wanted to take it out of the box and try it. Its stainless steel with a handle and removable shower head. The shower head has different setting that can be used and a pause button to stop water flow. Its perfect for washing hair and quick rinses. it took about an hour to assemble and install. The directions were precise, clear and easy to follow. I was able to do this on my own without any professional assistance. The shower head has a long handle and cord, it easily stretched to the back of my shower. Its perfect for relaxing everyday use and our family loves this showerhead by Delta.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great add to shower The convenience of having a shower head on a adjustable rod is great, especially if you are tall and your partner is short! This is well made with mostly metal parts and has some subtle design elements that make it a bit more interesting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! We ordered this as a replacement for our master shower, and it's perfect. Love all the options for the massage portions, and regular sprays. The finish is perfect too! It matches our existing fixtures in our bathroom, and love the ease of movement too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! The combination shower bar and handheld shower head is a dream for my mother. The design is sleek and modern and the shower has a couple of different settings. The bar is helpful in getting in and out of shower but it is also helpful in stabilizing yourself while in the shower. Very impressed with this product. Installation was fairly straight forward as well.

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
