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.

Dear Rob L, Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Arzo Raincan Shower Head can used with any of the Delta square shaped Shower and 6-Setting Diverter Trim Kits.

Can this shower head be mounted in the ceiling?

Asked by: nmasem104
Hello Nmasem104, Thank you for your question. When using the Delta Raincan Shower Head RP53496 you will need to screw it on the pipe coming down from your ceiling. You will need a 1/2 threaded pipe in your ceiling and the shower head will screw onto it. It is up to you how far it sticks down from the tile. Best regards, Tanya

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
