Rated 1 out of 5 by from Collar too large for bar-Customer Service no help I bought this product last week. When I went to install it, the collar that holds the hand held wand is too large to fit on the bar. It looks like a sleeve is missing or I have the wrong collar. Customer service told me to take the unit back to the store for a refund or replacement. It has already been installed. I asked for a different collar. They do not send parts, and there is no other collar for this unit. I sent pictures, but the CSR did not understand what I was saying. She kept talking over me and then read me the directions. She then said that the handle turned to tighten the unit. (Nope) She had no idea what she was talking about. I wedged something in between the bar and the bracket to make it work, but it is a short term solution. I will probably buy a bracket from a different manufacturer. This unit has lots of nice features and looks nice. I can't fault the overall product, except for the collar that goes around the bar. Other pictures of Delta brackets show 2 inserts- I was not offered the smaller one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT for an ADA shower I love this Handheld shower on ADA grab bar. It came with a 2' sliding bar, but I got an additional 3' one that I used with the handheld to make it reachable from standing or sitting on fold-down bench. The 2' bar that came with it, I used separately on the rear wall of the shower. I like all the controls on the handhold and the grip is comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shower head! I received this shower head and immediately wanted to take it out of the box and try it. Its stainless steel with a handle and removable shower head. The shower head has different setting that can be used and a pause button to stop water flow. Its perfect for washing hair and quick rinses. it took about an hour to assemble and install. The directions were precise, clear and easy to follow. I was able to do this on my own without any professional assistance. The shower head has a long handle and cord, it easily stretched to the back of my shower. Its perfect for relaxing everyday use and our family loves this showerhead by Delta.

I am considering Delta for all bathroom fixtures because I like the Champagne Bronze finish. While I like the looks of this product outside of finish, none of the finishes available coordinate with CB. Can the Traditional CB Grab be used as the slide bar?

Trying out the 51900 for the first time on installation. The Pause (II) button seems to lower the flow slightly but does not STOP it. It is the single button on the water side of the handle? Do I have a defective activtouch handle? Please advise.

Asked by: loveh2o
Hello loveh2o, Thank you for your question regarding the Delta ActivTouch® 9-Setting Hand Shower with Traditional Slide Bar / Grab Bar and I am happy to assist you today. The Pause feature on the hand shower reduces the flow of water to a trickle, allowing you to conserve water while doing tasks such as lathering up or shaving your legs, while maintaining your temperature settings, without allowing water pressure to build up in your pipes. This is not a positive shut-off. If we can assist you with anything else going forward, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 800-345-3358. Thank you, Brandy
