This has 2.0 gpm water flow. Can the water flow restrictor be removed so it is more like a 2.5gpm flow? How do I remove the restrictor?
Hello wb shower,
Thank you for your question regarding the Delta Premium 7-Setting Hand Shower and I am happy to assist you today.
Unfortunately, we cannot recommend removing the flow restrictor in our shower heads and hand showers and I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
While it is possible to remove flow restrictors from shower heads we strongly advise against it for several reasons.
Flow restrictors for faucets are an integral part of most aerators and it is generally not possible or desirable to remove them.
Removing the flow restrictor from an H2Okinetic showering device will result in improper operation and a very uncomfortable experience.
For water conservation purposes most plumbing codes require faucets and showering devices to not exceed a certain maximum flow rate.
Removing the flow restrictors could cause these devices to no longer meet these codes.
If you are interested, we do manufacture a 5-setting model which has similar settings in the Polished Brass finish with a 2.5 GPM flow rate:
I hope this is helpful!
Please feel free to give us a call if we can assist you with anything else going forward at 800-345-3358.

From what kind of material is this Shower Head 59426 made?
Is the outer shell of Delta Shower Head 59426 made from
brass finish over other metal,
or brass finish over plastic?
The dome of this shower head appears to be a different color.
Is the dome not made of brass, is it a brass finish?
Thank you for your question. Our showerheads and handshowers use either metal and plastic combination or a proprietary mixture of components so that the product has a high quality, while maintaining safety control with the various temperatures of water that go through the product.

what is the model# for the hose if I need to purchase separately.
Thank you for your question. This hand shower will work with any Delta hand shower hose, such as the RP64157 or U495D-PB60-PK.
However, models such as the 59346-PB-PK or 59711-PB-PK will include the hose.

How do you clean a Delta 59425-RB-PK hand held shower head
Thank you for your question regarding the cleaning care of the Delta Premium 7-Setting Hand Shower 59426-RB-PK model. This unit Soft, rubber Touch-Clean® spray holes allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up from the spray face of your shower head and hand shower with the touch of a finger. For any water spots or regular cleaning, you can use a 50/50 mixture of tap water and white vinegar to remove them. Vinegar is strong enough to dissolve mineral deposits, but not harsh enough to damage any of our finishes.

Pause Feature for the Premium 7-Setting Hand Shower Model#: 59425-SS-PK
Can someone tell me how the pause feature should work on the Delta Premium 7-Setting Hand Shower, Model#: 59425-SS-PK?
I have 7 settings but none are going to a pause mode. Instead water comes out of some of the various parts of the shower head. I am not sure if mine is defective but I selected this model because of this feature. Now that it has been installed I don't see this feature as an option. I have confirmed I have the correct model.
Dear Mike D,
Thank you for your question! To engage the Pause feature of the Delta 7-Setting hand shower 59426-SS-PK, you would rotate/turn the lever around the face of the handheld. The Pause feature reduces water to a trickle, giving you space for shaving, lathering and other shower tasks while maintaining your temperature settings. The pause feature is not a complete shut off feature.
