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.

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
