Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous remodel We purchased this shower head as part of the Delta Cassidy collection when we remodeled our bathroom. The Champagne Bronze is beautiful! We love both its functionality and aesthetic appeal. The ease of installation was also a perk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from not just a pretty face [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This shower head and system were just what we needed when we redid our master bath. It looks great and also works great too. Good amount of pressure/water flow. Not a wimpy one that makes you wonder if the shampoo is still in your hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Performance This shower head was sent as a warranty replacement for a 5 year old shower head that was leaking from the top of the fixture while showering. I was told that my old shower head had been redesigned and this was the replacement. The old shower head has 12 nozzles and is a 2.0 GPM fixture. The new shower head only has 8 nozzles and has been reduced to 1.75 GPM. I installed the new shower head and used it one time. What a disappointment! The water footprint is much smaller and has very poor pressure. I was so upset I removed the new fixture and reinstalled my old leaky shower head. I would rather deal with the leaky shower head that put up with the poor performance of this shower head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shower head We installed this shower head in our new cottage style house as a rain shower. I love the look and how large the piece is so that it matches the shower head on the wall but can function as both a rain shower or a regular shower head. Quality is good so far and it is even more beautiful in person. The price was great too and I had no complaints from the plumber about installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shower head H2okinetic is a great design. Can’t even tell it’s a low flow shower head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shower head. We installed this shower head as part of a hurricane Harvey repair and are very pleased with it. It gives a very nice amount of pressure and looks very nice combined with the rain shower head on the other side.

Our shower is small and the shower head needs to point straight down. Right now all the spray hits the wall instead of the person. Is there another shower arm that would enable this raincan shower head to point downward?&nbsp;

Asked by: KB138
Hello KB138, Thank you for your question regarding the Delta H2Okinetic&reg; Single-Setting Raincan Shower Head and I am sorry to hear that the shower head sprays water directly on your shower wall and for the inconvenience. I am happy to assist you today. The shortest shower arm which can be mounted on the wall that we currently offer is 5 7/16&rdquo; or 138 mm, model U4993-RB. Please visit the link below to view the Technical Specifications sheet for this model: https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-B-U4993-PK%20Rev%20A.pdf I hope this is helpful and if we can assist you with anything else going forward, please do not hesitate to respond to the email I sent to you or you may give us a call at 800-345-3358.

Can the water pressure be adjusted (specifically lowered)? We have two shower heads in the same shower: a H2Okinetic Single-Setting Raincan (RP70172RB) which runs at almost painfully high pressure, and an In2ition Two-In-One (RP62088) which feels fine.

Asked by: Megan
Thank you for your question, Megan! The RP70172RB shower head does not have an adjustment but is WaterSense labeled to produce 1.75 gpm @ 80 psi. You may want to check that the debris screen and flow restrictor have not been removed. Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions or need further assistance. Best regards, Edward

How to increase water flow through the A112.18.1M shower head. I cleaned the screen. Is there a water restrictor on this head that can be removed?

Asked by: Steve
Hi, Steve! Thank you for your question. The Delta RP70172 shower head assembly does have a built in flow restrictor that cannot be removed. Attempting to remove or modify the shower head may result in voiding any warranty that the unit may have. This shower head has a flow rate of 1.75 gpm @ 80 psi. The unit is Water-Efficient and WaterSense&reg; Labeled. WaterSense&reg; labeled showers use at least 20% less water than the industry standard&mdash;saving you money without compromising performance. If you feel like you are getting less than 1.75 gpm from the shower head, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358 so that we may assist you further. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. You may also email at customerservice@deltafaucet.com. Best Regards, Rosanna

What is the best solution/way to clean shower head?

We live in a city with hard water and the pressure that comes out from the shower head has decreased in the month we have lived in our house. The guest bathroom showerhead (same model) still has great pressure, I just believe there may be a small build up in the shower head? Any suggestions on cleaning the showerhead?
Asked by: Nick
Hello Nick, Thank you for your question on the Delta H2Okinetic Raincan Single-Setting Shower Head. I will be more than happy to assist you. We recommend soaking the shower head with white vinegar and water typically a half and half solution but for harder build up 75% vinegar and 25% water. If you need anything further please contact us by calling 800-345-3358. Thanks, Sarah Consumer Care Delta Faucet Company

RP70172RB Spray width

Can you please tell me the spray width I can expect from the RP70172RB. I currently have the RP48686RB and I am very disappointed in the width of the spray. On my current shower head, it seems that it the water doesn't spread at all which leaves me with about a 6 inch spray.
Asked by: Patrick
Patrick, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the pressure of each installation will vary the width of the spray. I can tell you that this Delta Faucet part is an 8&quot; diameter spray face. For a wider range, the pressure would need to be increased.

Is this recommended to be mounted on the ceiling? Or is it just a wall mount?

We would like to match it up with a fixed wall mount with the same technology, so we were looking to mount this one to the ceiling as it is a Raincan and wanted to know if this would work?
Asked by: Kat'shome
Hi Kat'shome, Thank you for your question! This shower head can be installed on a ceiling mount shower arm. Best regards, Jon

Does the RP70172SS come with the water supply cover? Mine did not include it and I had to use a generic one from the hardware store which does not match the showerhead.

Asked by: Maria
Thank you for your question, Maria! Model RP70172SS is a shower head only and does not include a shower arm. Below is a link to our currently available shower arms. https://www.deltafaucet.com/search-results?searchTerm=shower+arm&amp;searchType=Delta_Default#resultPage=0&amp;offset=0 Best regards, Edward

Shower Head Swivel

1. Does this shower head swivel? If yes, how much? 2. Is this categorized as &quot;rain&quot; shower head or normal spray shower head?
Asked by: TG
Hi TG, Thank you for your question. The model RP70172RB sowerhead does move/swivel approximately 15 degrees in each direction. The showerhead has a raincan style but operates using our H2OKinetic technology. Each shower head contains an internal system that controls the speed, movement and droplet size of the water, which creates the feeling of more water than a standard shower flowing at the same rate. Thanks, Dave
