How much I enjoy 5/5
The Delta In2ition Two-In-One Shower Arm Mounted Shower is a hand shower for getting those hard to reach places and a mounted shower head with the separating shower arm. This two in one design is great when showering on colder days so you don’t have to stop that relaxing downpour over your body while using the hand shower.
The In2ition line of Delta shower heads includes eleven round and square shower head designs with all of the models including the removable arm that makes up part of the shower head. This unique design allows you to continue showering while also using the shower arm to get at other parts of your body to fully enjoy your shower.
The Contemporary model I received is model number 58470 and is a square shower head that has a bent hand shower arm with four square holes and one round ring of holes. The rest of the mounted shower head has six holes on the head for the continuous use but a lever on the shower head allows you to change the shower from full hand use or a combination of shower head and mounted shower head sprays.
The unique square design is a stylish look and does give a wider spray pattern while in the shower so this type of shower head needs a wider tub or one with a good curtain. After I installed the Delta shower head the wider spray meant making sure the shower curtain was well over the rounded sides of the tub to keep water from sneaking around the curtain.
A few times some water went out of the shower when using the Delta shower head but a simple check when entering the shower and tub to make sure my curtain is stretched to cover the corners is all that is needed. The wider spray really makes for an enjoyable shower especially on the current cold days when a hot shower is much more relaxing and enjoyable.
The wider spray and the continuous shower being on when using both the shower head and the hand shower makes for a convenient and enjoyable shower as well. The shower spray adjusts easily with the side lever for adjusting the main shower head while a push button on the arm adjusts the spray out of the handheld arm.
Pushing the button turns the four squares and the round spray off or turns either set on and then both on for full adjustment of the handheld shower head. The lever on the side of the shower adjusts the main shower heads spray through the six holes or in combination with the handheld shower head.
Delta calls their new shower technology from their Delta shower heads H2Okinetic that provides the feeling of more water by pulsating the water in various directions. Inside the shower head chambers make the water oscillate as it comes out to create larger droplets that help to retain the heat of the water as well as spread those larger droplets out to make it feel like you’re getting more water.
It does work well and I do get the feeling of a larger area being covered by a shower head no larger than previous showerheads I have used. The Delta In2ition showerhead works well and is easy to install with a simple wrench and the included parts with washers for sealing against the shower arm pipe.
You may have to use a wrench to tighten down the shower head but Hand tightening was sufficient for my installation on the pipe while the shower hose for the handheld shower does not require any tool to install. The hose is about 60 inches long and does stretch a little by pulling but I am hesitant to stretch it out the full length that the company claims of 82 inches.
The Contemporary In2ition shower comes with in a Chrome, Champagne Bronze, Venetian Bronze and Stainless finish so you have a good choice to match the design of your bathroom. The hose is a steel covering and the finish on the shower head is all metal and resists corrosion as well as spots well for an easy to clean and nice Delta shower head.
The handheld arm docks in the shower head with a magnetic as well as snap lock that Delta calls MagnaTite Docking which does an excellent job of keeping the handheld shower in place when not in use as a handheld shower. I have never knocked the handheld shower head out of the main shower even when showering with another person and yes it was my wife.
The Delta Contemporary In2ition does come with Delta’s Lifetime Faucet and Finish Warranty that states the shower parts and materials are warranted to be free of defects for as long as the original purchaser owns their home. Faucets and other plumbing fixtures from the top companies usually come with a great warranty and Delta is no different in theirs with a lifetime warranty.
I really enjoy the Contemporary design of the In2ition Delta shower head and have enjoyed using it with the larger spray area and seemingly more water to my shower while still using the same amount. The Delta Contemporary In2ition will cost about $150 with other models costing about the same or slightly less and can be found at many home improvement stores or Sears.
I really enjoy the Delta Contemporary In2ition shower and highly recommend the new line of In2ition shower heads by Delta for a new shower experience as well as a stylish look to your bathroom.
