Delta In2ition Chrome, Bronze, Brass, Nickel, Stainless Shower Head Review

Delta Shower Heads

In terms of sheer quantity of products, shower heads department is not Delta's largest, but when it comes to versatility, it can rival even such powerful categories as lavatory and kitchen faucets. The company recognizes that when it comes to bathing, people's needs and preferences fluctuate dramatically, and subsequently attempts to address every possible whim, be in design, or functionality.

Delta offer three types of shower heads. One replicates classic raincan designs, where a fixed, flat, all-metallic (except the rubber nubbins) square or circle conducts the water, streaming it in an even way; in this type of hardware design and visual characteristics take precedence over technological features. Another provides a counter alternative: modern, streamlined sculpting, complex inner parts, often plastic made, and a variety of functions, including several spray options.

The third type combines hand showers with shower heads, effectively offering a hybrid and the most versatile showering solution.
