Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shower Head Leaks Had three of these installed professionally by a licensed plumber in July of 2017. One leaks where the shower head meets the stem. Poorly constructed product. Would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Like More Water The H20Kinetic technology is incredible. The GPM is less than my original showerhead and it feels like so much more water is being released. I don’t even need to turn the water on as much anymore so I know it’s using even less water (Since I had to turn the water on as far as it would go with my previous shower head). Great technology. The product itself feels solid as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the sleek design and fine finish, but are disappointed with the falling performance of this model. We installed two of them in our house. They worked very well in the beginning, but recently both started to show very low flow. We followed youtube videos to clean up with vinegar. It did not help much. Another minor design issue is the short shower arm, which may cause water dripping into the gaps of the faucet when turning off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and a better shower experience We installed this shower head a few months ago and may never switch again. The coverage is great and the shower experience is overall more luxurious. Delta got it right on this one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice shower Very nice shower head. Functions as described in the product description. It's not made of heavy gauge material, but it functions well. I was leery of Delta as their products are often considered "builder's" quality, but this product is quite good.

Does the Delta RP70173 Shower head have a ball joint?

I purchased this shower head to replace the one currently in my shower. Does this model have a ball joint underneath the nut so that the shower head can be angled while taking a shower? If so, how do you remove the plastic piece around it?
Asked by: Frank
Hi, Frank! Thank you for your question. The showerhead, RP70173, does have a ball joint. It can be angled so it can move to your liking. You do not have to remove anything to use the ball joint. Best Regards, Rosanna
