Hi, what is the diameter of the hose connecting to the tap?
Thank you for your question Shao! The threads on the ends of the hose are both 1/2" IPS.
Best regards, Edward

Which end of shower hose is which?
I can't tell which end of the shower hose to attach to the hand shower or the shower arm outlet. The instructions I received with my hand shower do not match the ones on this website. The website installation instructions say that I must attach the ridged nut end of the shower hose to the shower arm mount outlet so the vacuum breaker works. The tapered end of the hose must attach to the hand shower, and there is supposed to be a yellow sticker on the tapered end. The print instructions do not say anything about a vacuum breaker, except to call and ask about it, but mention the tapered end and the ridged nut (but do not show them in the diagrams).
But each end of the hose looks exactly the same-smooth outside with threads on the inside and a black washer in each end. There was no yellow sticker on either end. Neither end is ridged or tapered on the outside. How do I know which end is which? If there is a vacuum breaker in the hose, how I do I know it's working properly if I can't tell which end it's in?
As there was no yellow sticker and the two ends of the hose appeared identical to me, I randomly attached one end to the hand shower and the other to the shower arm outlet. Everything is working fine, so I'm not sure whether I lucked out in the coin flip or if it really doesn't matter.

Is this a low flow shower-head?
Is this shower-head designed to conserve water?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 75700 has flow output of 2.5 gpm at 80 psi. It is not considered to be a low-flow showerhead.

How do I disassemble this shower head to clean out mineral deposits?
Hi Charlie, Thank you for your question!
The hand held can not be completely taken apart for cleaning. I recommend soaking the entire head in a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar for approximately 10-15 minutes to dissolve any minerals. You can also remove the debris screen in the end of the hand held wand where it threads onto the hose and rinse it.

can i purchase a shorter hose or modify the one I have
the 6 fool hose is at minimum 12 inches too long. The shower head hits the floor if let go or layed down.
I would replace or modify the hose. I do not have a crimping tool bt have uther tools that may work.
Hi Bill, Thank you for your question. The hose for the model 75700 hand shower cannot be cut down as it would remove the fittings from the hose. We offer a 40" metal hose in chrome as U495S-40-PK, and a 40" white ultraflex hose U494R-WH40-PK that will work with the 75700. We also have 60" hoses U495S-60-PK chrome, U494R-60-PK white/chrome, and U490R-60-PK black/chrome.

white o-ring is a 75700 part ?
hi,, I just installed a 75700 and then next day, I found a white o-ring type washer in the shower, did it come from the 75700 or the old one I took out?
Funny, I found one too. This must be a piece of the connector.

Matching Fixed Shower Head to This Handheld?
I have 2 diverters, and 2 shower pipes, on opposing walls in my shower. I want to put this handheld on one of them, but want a fixed shower head on the other one that looks the same as the head on this handheld (same design, same flow settings, same color). What model would that be?
Thank you for your question. The matching shower head for this unit is the 75760.
