Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tiomiguel Shower head works great, but the hose smelled nasty!
I love Delta fixtures, and the shower head part of this handheld shower works like a charm!
However, as soon as I opened the package, I got hit with a bad smell; about the closest I can get to describing it is to say it had an odor strongly reminiscent of skunk spray. I determined that it was the plastic coating on the hose attachment that was stinking up the place -- something I've encountered with other plastic components in a variety of products (not just Delta, not just bath fixtures) in recent years. Something funky in the manufacturing process in China?
Anyway, I tried to "air it out," but the next day the bathroom where this was installed simply reeked! Even the contractors who were laying tile in the next room were holding their noses when they walked by the bathroom.
Fortunately, the old fixture in that bath was also a hand-held, and I had saved the hose. And fortunately, it worked with the new Delta. The new hose had to go in the trash.
So, while I love the shower head itself, I have a hard time giving this a "thumbs up" buy recommendation because of the Reeking Hose. At the very least, try to pry open enough of the package to see if you have a stinker, too!

I purchased a fancier shower head a few years ago and one of the switches broke. This replacement was much less money and works great.

Shower head works fine. Only wish the flexible hose was longer.

Seems to be of decent quality and works as it should. Finish is nice, The only thing I was a bit disappointed with was the lack of force in the full shower mode but the other settings give a good massage. I'd say it is a good value for the price point.

I should have listened to the other reviews. The hose is garbage and appears to be a replacement for a different, previous model of hose, as the installation instructions mention details that don't apply to the supplied hose. The hose is stiff and all-plastic. Hopefully it will relax a bit over time. I find spiral-wound metal hoses to be much nicer, and they aren't necessarily much more expensive. The shower head itself seems to be of good quality and was easy enough to install. This product just strikes me as a generic Chinese mass-market import that Delta rebranded to sell in the US. That may or may not be the case, but I was not too impressed because of the cheap hose.

After reading some of the review, some negative and some positive, I figured I give it a try. Installation is very easy if you are careful that the washers located on each end of the hose does not get warp when screwing into the shower head and mount. I have experienced like others have about leaking around the connection between the hose and mount. So I unscrewed the hose from the mount and noticed that the washer got warp because of the friction created against the nozzle. An easy fix is to lube the washer with Vaseline, wrap Teflon tape around the mount nozzle 2-3 times and carefully screw the hose unto the mount, hand tightened only. Once it is installed this way, leaks are eliminated. If you want more water coming out of the shower head, you may consider removing the limiter located at the screw in part of the shower head where the hose is attached to.
This is a great hand held shower for the money. Installed correctly and as described above, it will work really well. I also like the different type of spray but for the most part it is inexpensive. Cons: it is made of plastic, so hand tightened only all connections, otherwise you will crack the plastic. This shower head functions as it is made for. As for the hose being bent in some area, after installing, run all hot water through it and the hose will straighten itself out. It's that easy.

A functional selectable-spray showerhead that installed fairly well, after an extra layer of teflon tape stopped leakage. Lots of plastic--I still miss metal shower head mounts. This one replaces a plastic mount that cracked. My wife uses this shower and really likes this shower head.
