While other products may gather unsightly mineral build-up over time, Delta soft rubber Touch-Clean® spray holes allow any mineral residue to simply be wiped away for an instantly refreshed look – with no need for soaking or the aid of chemical cleaners. Matte Black makes a statement in your space, cultivating a sophisticated air and coordinating flawlessly with most other fixtures and accents. With bright tones, Matte Black is undeniably modern with a strong contrast, but it can complement traditional or transitional spaces just as well when paired against warm neutrals for a rustic feel akin to cast iron. Delta WaterSense labeled faucets, showers and toilets use at least 20% less water than the industry standard—saving you money without compromising performance.

NEED PART NUMBER FOR THE EQUAL TO U4999 BUT IN MATTE BLACK, IS THER SUCH A THING?

Asked by: KENNY
Thank you for your question, KENNY! Unfortunately we do not currently offer a ceiling mounted arm in Matte Black, however our sister company Brizo does offer some options in the same finish. https://www.brizo.com/bath/product/RP70765BL https://www.brizo.com/bath/product/RP48986BL https://www.brizo.com/bath/product/RP70765BL Best regards, Edward

Where can the downrod for this shower head be purchased? It is not listed on the part list and states that it is sold separately, however the one that IS an option is listed as an angled downrod. I am looking for one that can be mounted from ceiling.

Asked by: Bkeller
Thank you for your inquiry, Bkeller! The Delta Metal Raincan Shower Head 52159-BL model can be installed with any 1/2" IPS ceiling mount shower arm. A few of the ones we manufacture are RP61058BL, U4998-BL and U4999-BL. Best regards, Tanya
