The Delta 7-Setting Hand Shower 75700 offers a lot for its $25 price tag. It has seven spray settings, an extra-long hose, a choice of three finishes and easy installation. Most users are also pleased with the feel of the shower, but some complain that the flow is too weak. Also, like most inexpensive shower heads, the Delta is made mostly of plastic, and many users say the parts don't hold up well.
Mixed reviews. Most users of the Delta 7-Setting Hand Shower 75700 say that there's at least one setting they love. One owner at Amazon.com calls it "a spa-like experience without the price," and several reviews at HomeDepot.com rave about the massage setting's ability to soothe tired muscles. Most owners say the Delta, with its 2.5-gallon-per-minute (gpm) flow rate, delivers plenty of pressure on every setting. However, a sizable minority complain that the stream is weak. One HomeDepot.com review gripes, "You can't even tell there is a massage spray setting ... My old shower head had five times the pressure."
Easy to install, easy to adjust. Owners universally agree that the Delta 7-Setting Hand Shower 75700 is very easy to install. We found several reviews at HomeDepot.com saying that the process takes only a few minutes, even for someone with no plumbing experience or tools. Most reviewers also say the shower head is easy to use once installed. One owner at Amazon.com praises the anti-slip handle and the easy-turn dial, saying they're both easy to manipulate with wet, soapy hands. Users also find the extra-long hose handy for washing pets and cleaning the tub, but several reviews say that it's very stiff and cumbersome.
Flimsy plastic. The biggest problem with the Delta 7-Setting Hand Shower 75700 is its plastic construction, say users. One owner at Amazon.com complains that it even has a strong plastic odor when hot water runs through it, but most are more concerned about its durability. Tightening the shower head to stop a leak can cause it to crack, and some report that it can also break regardless of whether or not it's in use. However, Delta backs the shower head with a limited lifetime warranty, and many reviewers say that the company is very good about honoring it.
The Delta 75700 is the top-rated handheld shower head at Amazon.com, with 4.3 stars overall from nearly 600 owners. User-reviewers love the shower head's strong pressure, multiple settings and easy installation, as well as its low price tag. However, a few complain that the plastic parts are flimsy.
