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.

What is the internal thread size of the hose end
I need to know if the hose will fit a male M22 thread adaptor.
Thank you for your question. The threads on the end of the hose are 1/2" IPS.

What is the handheld/showerhead made of? Is it plastic?
Thank you for your question, Meda! Our hand showers are manufactured with both metallic and non-metallic high-grade materials to ensure long-lasting use. With any shower head or hand shower, the part of the faucet that you would grab onto is typically made of a plastic or a plastic-mixture, as metal is heavier, susceptible to corrosion and retains heat.
Best regards, Edward

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.
