Great shower head for the money
on October 19, 2012
Have had this Delta shower head for about 6 months now. Based on the range of reviews seen here, I decided to wait to post a review. It was very easy to install, and has held up perfectly well as a daily use shower head. With all the jets running it's a nice rain shower feeling, and it's nice to be able to split the settings between the handheld and the outer ring.
For best results, and highest water bill, you can pull out the little restriction filter on the inlet.
Rubber tips on the water outlets means that it cleans easily with just a cloth.
Others say this leaks where it shouldn't... I've had absolutely zero issues with that. It's been flawless that way.
Some reviews complain that it's plastic... yeah I get that it's not metal and we all love metal stuff, but seriously I've dropped this once or twice, and it would have hurt a lot more if it'd been heavy steel. Aluminum would be nice, but probably drive the cost up quite a bit.
All in all, very happy with this purchase, which is nice as there are a mountain of options out there, but in this $80-130 price range, a lot of stuff that doesn't get great reviews due to poor quality.
6/22/13 - so it's been about 18 months of ownership, and still zero complaints. Still easy to clean, still no leaks, handheld still stays firmly planted in the holder, even after it being removed and re-seated weekly.
1/4/16 - sad to report that the head has developed a very slight leak around the outer rim of the ring (the fixed part of the head). It's really minor, but it does cause some scale build-up there over a span of a week or two of daily use. Not sure I'd take it down a star yet, but probably getting close if the leak gets much worse.
