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 Works well! If you’re looking for great pressure and ease of use, this is the shower head to use! I love the detachable head to get those hard to reach places as well! the hose detached easily and is light weight as well.

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.

Hello, I recently bought this unit and I am trying to find out where to get the cap that covers up the water supply where the hose connects to the water supply. Does Delta make a water supply cap and would it match the finish of this hand held shower?

Hello,  After reading the reviews...a few say this shower head does not pivot up and down but it appears to in the video.  I'm looking for a shower head to not only move up and down on the bar, but also pivot so the water can flow straight down.  

Asked by: Jeanine
Hi, Jeanine! Thank you for you for your question. The Delta 51900-SS Hand Shower Mount does not pivot to the hand shower to move up and down. Best Regards, Rosanna

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
