Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta Rain Shower head Installed as part of a Moen brushed nickel shower system in our Master Bath. Liked the Larger Delta rain head better than the Moen. The finish is close enough not to be an issue. Can't wait to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shower head I installed this 1 year ago in our master shower. We put it in with the RP61058SS 6" ceiling mount. I also installed an Intuition shower head on the wall, an ARZO handle and a VERO diverter, all in stainless steel. I think they look good together. This model raincan is bigger and thicker than the Vero. The shower stream is not hard. It does feel like a lot of water. My husband always uses this raincan. But when I dont want to get my hair wet I use the wall mount shower head, The main reason I love Delta and keep buying their products is they have EXCELLENT customer service. I have bought about 2 dozen products from them in the last couple years. Some have had problems but delta makes it EASY to get the item repaired or replaced and that is why I always buy delta.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delta waterfall shower head works well, delivered as advertised. I would have preferred chrome vs SS but chrome was back ordered.

What is the difference between rp62955 and rp53496?

Asked by: Sam
Hi Sam, Thank you for your question. The RP53496 is an all metal 8" square showerhead. The RP62955 is a 5-11/16" x 8-5/8" rectangular showerhead. Both are single setting showerheads with a full body spray pattern, touch clean spray holes, and a flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute. Thanks, Dave

What's the largest rainshower head manufactured by Delta

Hello, What's the largest shower head manufactured by Delta. I've seen a 8 inch one, do you have anything bigger than that.
Asked by: Raja
Hi, Raja! Thank you for your question. This shower head, RP53496, is the largest square rain can shower head that we have. We do have an 8 5/8" rain can shower head which is RP62955. https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/product/RP62955 Best Regards, Rosanna

Dave, how does the head mount to the tile? I get the nipple part, just drill a hole for the nipple to attach to the water supply.

What will I need besides the shower head and nipple and diverter and what are the part numbers for ordering purposes. Is there an online installation manual that shows me how to mount directly to the tile? Referring to RP53496 Thanks
Asked by: Mike
Hi Mike, Thanks for your question. When using Delta Faucet model # RP53496 without a showerarm and flange, you will need to screw it on the pipe coming down from your ceiling. There is not a manual for this operation. You will need a 1/2 threaded pipe in your ceiling and the showerhead will screw onto it. It is up to you how far it sticks down from the tile. Thanks. Jody

What is the construction of this shower head?

There is quite a difference in price, how does this compare to the RP50841?
Asked by: rfjm
Hello rfjm, Thank you for your question on the Delta Universal Showering Single-Setting Raincan Shower Head. I would be happy to answer this question for you. There are some small differences in the shape of the shower heads and the nubbins, but the biggest difference is that the RP53496 is made of metal and the RP50841 is not. I hope this was helpful! If you have any other questions or concerns with this product you can give us a call at 800-345-3358 for answers and assistance. Thank you, Caleb Delta Faucet Company

Can you tell me if the water flow restrictor valve can be removed form this item? If not, which is the Delta raincan with the strongest water flow/pressure?

Asked by: Peter
Hi, Peter! Thank you for your question. The flow restrictor in the Delta RP53496 is non-removable. Unfortunately, attempting to remove the flow restrictor or modifying the shower head in anyway, may result in voiding any warranty that this shower head may have. The flow rate for this shower head is 2.50 gpm @ 80 psi which is at the highest flow rate we have for our shower heads. If you feel like you are getting less than 2.50 gpm, please contact us back. Best Regards, Rosanna

is there an installation guide?

We put in two of these showerheads. One rotates very nicely and one spins around loosely. What is causing it to spin?
