Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but... I looked quite a bit before selecting this item. We wanted something that could also function as a grab bar and had the right finish. It is a sturdy, attractive item, but if you are looking for a shower head with some oomph, this isn’t it. We are using it with a rain shower head and wanted something to provide more of a pulsing capability, which this doesn’t offer. There are various options, but they are all pretty similar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, Stylish and Easy I’m very happy with Delta 51900 Multi-Function Handshower package. It’s easy to use. The shower head slides up and down the slide bar easily. The finish is very nice. And it’s Activ touch works great. I couldn’t be more pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi Function Handshower I love the look and the styling of this product. I needed the multifunctions especially the pause button and it is hard to find. Purchasing the grab bar instead of the regular slider bar only made it better.

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.

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
