how would this shower head be installed from the ceiling? What part would I need to purchase?
Thank you for your question Melissa.
The 52680-RB shower head is designed to work with 1/2" IPS male threads and does not require other parts in order to install. This would also work with longer shower arms such as the Arzo 16" shower arm if installing pipe through the ceiling is not an option. I will include a link to this shower arm below.
Best regards, Edward

What is the diameter, in inches, across the face of the showerhead?
The dimensions as listed on your website are 8-5/32 in. H x 4-11/16 in. D x 8-5/32 in. W. I assume the width measurement is actually the diameter but there is no way this shower head is 8+" high and wide unless you stand it so the joint where water comes in to the showerhead is parallel to the surface it's on.
Hi Dennis, Thank you for your question!
The diameter of the face on the 52680 is 8".

Does this showerhead swivel on the arm? and does it come with the arm?
Thank you for your question, KeithR! The shower head will swivel by about 30 degrees. The shower arm is sold separately. This will work with any standard 1/2" arm such as the RP6023 and RP6025.
Best regards, Jon

What shower arm would you recommend for this shower head?
My husband would like to replace our Chrome finish Delta 14 Series fixtures with Bronze finish. We currently have a spray shower, but would like to replace with this shower head.
We will need to buy both a shower arm/flange in addition to the shower head. What arm would you suggest for ease of install and best performance with this particular shower head? Will Model # RP6023 work and does the shower head itself tilt or is it fixed on the arm?
Thank you for your question. The RP6023RB shower arm will work with the 52680-RB showerhead. The showerhead does pivot/tilt as well.

Being so so large, will this nozzle still produce a strong forward shooting spray? What do the three settings do?
I am looking for a Delta Venetian Bronze shower head to go with my new T17T097-RB shower valve. I want a 6" or bigger diameter head but also want a decent forward spray while using the built-in water constrictor (if possible).
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 52680-RB has a water flow of 2.5 gpm at 80 psi. There are 3 settings to the 8" spray face. They are Massage spray, Full spray w/massage, and Full body spray.

We recently purchased this shower head and noticed the massage/stream combo setting does not work on our shower head. Is there something we need to change in our installation, or do we need to return for a new shower head?

I am very sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues getting the massage setting to work on your new shower head, and I apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused.

Complicated Question...RE: swapping out Model 142710-SS to New Shower Arm + Head
I have the Delta 142710-SS unit in our new master shower. We have been advised to swap the arm and shower head due to the water shooting on our new shower doors. We want to try to eliminate the amount of water hitting it.
Can we switch the arm out to RP61273-SS? And put shower head 52680 or 52687 on the new arm? Can we do this with the existing model we have (142710) and will either of those shower heads work with the new arm size?
Please advise...many kind thanks!!
Thank you for your question, Jag. Either showerhead you have listed or the original showerhead that comes with the 142710-SS will work with the RP61273SS shower arm.
Note that the In2ition showerhead that comes with the 142710-SS-I will not work with the RP61273SS.
