Is the angle of the showerhead adjustable? How long is the showerhaead arm? What PSI is needed for this showerhead to perform effectively?
How many inches are needed between the showerhead and the top of the head of the person showering to allow the showerhead spray pattern to be a minum of 24 square inches?
Thank you for your questions. Delta Faucet model #57740 does have an adjustable showerhead. The shower arm is 16 inches long. It will have an output of 2.5 gpm at 80 psi. You may not be able to achieve a spray pattern of 24 inches unless you mount the showerhead very high overhead since it is 8 inches across.

How deep does this need to be mounted in the finished wall?
What depth for dog ear fitting in rough in?
Thank you for your question. We do not have a recommendation on how deep the elbow needs to be for your installation. This portion of the installation can be completely customized to your preference.

Can this shower head be installed in conjunction with one of the Delta hand-wand units so you can switch between the raincan and the wand? Do you have a package that includes both (and the hot/cold water valves)?
Thank you for your question. The Vero shower head, 57740, can be used with a hand shower by adding a Diverter Trim kit with the Valve Trim kit. We recommend the T11853 Diverter Trim kit. Here is a link to this trim kit on our website:
You can also view the Vero Valve trim kits available:
Note: These are examples of the trim kits available in the Vero Collection. The shower head can mix and match with any other collection we have.

Rinsing shampooed hair thoroughly?
I know many install a rain head as well as a shower head; one for relaxation and the other for rinsing shampooed hair.
I am interested in having one shower head that can be used for rinsing hair thoroughly and easily following shampooing. Will this particular model, even though described as a rain head, suit my needs?
Thank you for your question regarding the Delta Metal Raincan Shower Head and I am happy to help you today.
This shower head has a water flow rate of 2.5GPM at 80PSI so it should provide a decent amount of water and pressure to remove shampoo from any hair type. This model is 7 11/16" in length and width, so it will provide a decent amount of coverage as well.
I hope this information is helpful and please feel free to give us a call on our warranty and technical support line at 800-345-3358 if there is absolutely anything else we may be able to assist you with.

Will this shower head work with U4929-PK diverter?
Hi, just wondering if this showerhead would be functional with the U4929-PK diverter since we want to add a separate handheld shower (57530). Do you foresee any issues with these setup, cosmetic or otherwise?
Hi Fadilles, Thank you for your question. The model 57740 shower head and 575301 slide bar hand shower will work with the U4929-PK shower arm diverter. You will want to use a traditional shower arm with the 45 degree angle for this combination as the 90 degree shower arm would have the hand shower hose running towards the wall instead of pointing down.
