This thing is great. At first I was hesitant of buying it but after reading reviews I took a plunge and I have never regretted it. It works surprisingly wonderful, sounds great for its money and it is no hassle to hook up to a phone,
Showertime is fun again!
February 25, 2016
Great product! Very easy install. Bluetooth speaker can be turned up quite loud, enabling you to hear it other rooms. It's mostly treble, but the sound is clean and crisp. The showerhead itself provides a very refreshing shower experience. I have not had any hot water tank trouble like some other users have noted on here, but I'm a dude, so I typically shower pretty quickly. I would definitely recommend purchasing the detla extension arm if your pipe set-up is like mine. Not sure how long the speaker lasts, but from the other reviews, it sounds like it should be awhile before I need to charge it again. I intended pun in that last sentence.
Rocking in the rain
December 30, 2015
This was purchased as a gift for my 17 year old daughter, who can't imagine taking a shower without music playing.
1) Excellent value for the price.
2) The speaker definitely provides full, rich sound at volumes that work very well over the noise of the shower.
3) Speaker is easily removed from the shower head, & my daughter prefers it to her other Bluetooth speakers so she uses it everywhere.
4) In her only test of battery life it was still pumping up the volume after 8 straight hours when she gave up at bedtime.
None really, just a few minor caveats listed below.
Please understand that a rain shower head is designed to provide vertical water flow, (straight down) so if you attach it to a standard, angled shower mount it will seem odd: Due to the angle the shower head will begin spraying from the lower third of the jets, & only as the head fills with water will the rest of the jets will come into action. This means that the volume of water will be higher in the lower half of the head than the upper, & also means that when you turn off the water it will take a few moments for the water in the head to drain from the bottom jets.
It has no female-to-male adapter to attach it to a standard handheld shower extension, & although I picked one up at the hardware store for under $2.00, any rain shower head will work best when you use an adjustable shower arm.
Overall this product does exactly what it clams, & for an excellent price. If you want music while showering, & especially if you want to take that music anywhere, I highly recommend it.

The shower head was delivered quickly and very easy to install (we did not order/use the shower head bar extender) The blue tooth capabilities have a far range and the sound is great. The rainfall shower head has nice water pressure as well. Would recommend to anyone.
WOW! WHAT AN INVIGORATING SHOWER! Bluetooth speaker is a nice bonus
December 16, 2014
This showerhead is fantastic. I don't think I've ever had such an invigorating shower in my life. I have a large showerhead that is almost like this, but this one provides far more water power. Even without the bluetooth speaker, it's a worthy purchase for just a good powerful showerhead. EPA says that showerheads should flow at a maximum of 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm). Although I have not done any measurements, by taking some amazing showers I'm guessing this showerhead flows at 5 or 10 gpm. It's something that you'll have to experience for yourself to know how it feels.
The construction of the showerhead is mostly plastic and made in China like almost everything these days. It came in a generic cardboard box with just a small white label.
The bluetooth speaker works as advertised. The sound is a bit tinny, but that is to be expected from a small speaker. The acoustics in a bathroom isn't ideal in the first place. The speaker's volume is loud enough to enjoy your music while taking a shower. The volume is controlled from your phone or audio device. The bluetooth speaker also has a phone function where you can answer calls while in the shower. It's difficult to hear each other with the water running. I suppose it's still nice to have that feature for times when you're expecting someone and they're calling you from the front door.
To charge the speaker you simply twist the speaker 1/4 turn to the left and remove it from the showerhead. Then plug it in to any USB charger with the included cable. The charger is not included, so I used the charger cube for my iPhone. It takes a few hours to charge it up. I'm not sure how long the battery will last between charges, but I've used it six times thus far and the battery is still going strong.
The bluetooth pairing is just turning it on and letting your device find it. There's no password. Keep in mind that if you have multiple devices, the bluetooth speaker will sync up with whatever is the closest device (or the strongest signal).
The user manual is just 1 page. It doesn't say much and it's all in horrible translated English.
I bought this during a Lightning deal for a good price. If I can get it for the same price again, I'd buy another one for my second bathroom.
Good construction and value. Works well!
October 5, 2016
So, I bought this because someone wrote a review saying that the nut used to connect it to your shower arm coming out of the wall was one that could twist/spin, to allow for the extender arm to be positioned exactly as you wish. Well, that review was written in 2013, and the manufacturer has since welded the nut. I was worried, but there was no need to be. The welded nut went on perfectly, and positioned just right.I've not noticed the "this materials used are so thin" reviews that some others complain of. It installed without any bending or twisting. I mean, it has a nut that you use a wrench to tighten (using a cloth over, to prevent scratching). Are these people just twisting it on and using the arm itself to tighten? Of course it will bend and mangle using that method! Install it using proper methids, and you should be fine.Someone else linked a different (preferred, to them) arm in their review that has a larger diameter tubing ... insinuating that this tubing on this is too small for adequate water flow. Nonsense! There is plenty of water flow from this ... and we have just average water pressure. I DID take the diverter out of the shower head we bought to go with it, and it works brilliantly.P.S. the reviewer who posted the above-mentioned link to a larger diameter arm failed to mention that the larger arm was also twice the price of this one! Umm ... duh. Of course you get more when you pay more.The joints on this unit are strong, and the arm stays in place with the rainshower head attached. No weird engineering required, and the joints just tightened by the thumbscrews.I would buy this product again. A good value, and a good price.
Easy Install, Works Like A Charm
July 29, 2016
This is the second time I've purchased this adjustable shower arm and I does everything I need it to do. I initially order this device because the water pipe coming into the bathroom shower (in my rental unit) was way too low for me (I had to crouch to get under the water) - so this gave the needed extension I was looking for. Installation was very simple, including the use of the sealant tape that comes with the product. I've owned and used the first one I purchased for about two years (the second one was a gift), and I've had ZERO issues with leaks or the screw tighteners at the joints. Two years after installation, it's in the same position as I've originally installed it. I will add though that I don't use a heavy shower head (one of those plum-sized screw-in heads with no hose/attachments). So read other reviews if you're using something heavy.PROS:- Easy to install- No leaks / no weak joint screws (with a light shower head)- Easy to adjust positionCONS:- might not be able to handle very heavy shower heads* photo shows the product. I was able to gain 8 additional inches of vertical compared to my original faucet installed unusually low. Now I don't have to crouch.
March 26, 2016
Put two of them together for a real rain shower experience. I had one of the extenders and the rain head for almost two years but the other day thought to buy another extender to give me more height. Im 6ft and have more than 6 inches of clearance. FYI, the two extenders are the same brand. I went with the same because the first one lasted so long with no issues. Also, I move frequently so it has been installed and uninstalled 6 times in two years. No leaks, no problems.
Does the job
March 27, 2015
At 6'1" and my wife 5'2" our shower needs are quite different. This shower arm solves everything. We have a rain head with a shower handle. The head came off ,attached the new shower arm then reattached the head. Works great. And the separate shower handle was uneffected.
It's a shower arm, you don't need to put that much thought into this purchase, I promise.
March 14, 2015
PROS:-Solid construction-Easy to adjustCONS:-Shorter than you'd think, but nowhere near a deal breakerI got this as an extension for the AKDY 8" rain shower head, it does exactly what it needs to, it's like Inspector Gadget, except only the extendo-arm. I was actually surprised because I was honestly expecting half of it to be plastic, but it was entirely metal, which afirmed my beliefs that I will never have a problem with this thing. The screws tighten nicely, you can put it at whatever position you want easily, not much else to say. Only real downside is that ten inches(probably more likely 9 the way most people have it set up) is really less than you'd think. I'm considering getting a 12"-14" arm to replace this one day. Until then, it does the job well.[04-30-16] EDIT: Still using this same shower arm with the same rain shower head. It still works decent, but if I move the shower head too much, it's pretty much guaranteed to lose its tightened hold. I don't really ever move the shower head though, so it isn't a real problem, just something to take into account when guying this. Still feels solid when I do tighten it though, I don't expect the fasteners to break any time soon.

It works well, just slightly inconvenient.
December 28, 2016
Only complaint is that it doesn't automatically sync up with an already-established device when you turn it on. When you press the power button you then have to go to your phone and connect there as well. Kind of inconvenient since I don't remember to turn it on until I'm already in the shower. We have another Bluetooth speaker that once you hit the power button, not only does it go ahead and connect to the nearest device but it also start playing the music you last left off (whether that was Pandora or your purchased music).Besides that, the sound quality is good and it looks nice. Has also held up well after 1.5 years.
April 12, 2016
This is a great showerhead. When I first received it I was pleasantly surprised by its size, it's a big, wide showerhead. The speaker is removeable and uses bluetooth to connect to your phone or music source. As for the sound quality, its not bad, its not good either. Volume can get loud, which is what you want when you have the shower running with the bathroom fan on. The sound comes out clean even at full volume. I have paired it with Vic Tsing Waterproof speakers with a Miccus Bluetooth Splitter, so I now have stereo surround sound in my shower! Battery life is quite long, I have charged it once since I got it a month ago. And since the speaker is removable you can use it anywhere in the house or outdoors for that matter, since its waterproof.Now for the showerhead. It has good pressure and feels great at full power. It does use a lot of water, much more than my old standard small showerhead. I run out of hot water within 4 songs (about 20 minutes). I had to used a Delta extension arm to get it flat for a true rain experience. At about 8 inches in diameter its quite large and will get you soaked fast. Obviously, the center where the speaker is placed there is no water coming down and you can notice it. But that doesn't detract from the product.Its been almost a month since I bought this and it has been a treat everytime I hit the showers after a long day. The product has a quality finish and does not feel cheap. All in all, a great product and highly recommended.
Great Performing Shower-head and Bluetooth speaker
February 4, 2016
I purchased this showerhead back on November 27, 2015 (Black Friday) and have been using the shower-head daily and am thoroughly enjoying it I installed it with the AKDY® 9.5" Brass Chrome Finish Polished Bathroom Adjustable Height Wall Mount Pipe Extension Shower Head Arm which was inexpensive. Granted, the shower pressure isn't that great but sufficient for me. There are other reviews that indicate other more expensive extension arm supports higher spray pressure, so maybe take their advice rather than mine. I must also give high marks for the Bluetooth speaker that sounds and works flawlessly with my Samsung cellphone to listen to music via the Tune-in Radio app. The speaker's fidelity is quite good for music and great for the non-music (talk show) programming. I've been using this little speaker more often outside the shower, i.e., in the garage and in the bedroom...works great as a speakerphone...sound quality is excellent per the caller on the opposite side of the phone conversation. It's been a little over 2 months without any problem. I highly recommend this product...Thinking about purchasing another for my second bathroom shower but with the higher flow extension arm. Stay tuned for the results on whether the shower exit pressure is higher.
January 7, 2016
I received this showerhead less than a day after I ordered it. Yay! My husband finally installed it yesterday. It took him no time to do so, using no extension pipe, and the height is just fine. I am clueless when it comes to electronics, but once he showed me how to get music on my tablet I found it easy to do on my own. Last night we used it for the first time and I didn't want to get out of the shower! We should have changed our original showerhead years ago, cause this one feels fantastic. The music was nice and clear, clearer than from a different showerhead speaker we used at a very expensive B&B. The only minor gripe (and hence 4 stars instead of 5) is that there is no volume control on the speaker, so you'd have to be to set the proper volume on whatever device you are using before stepping into the shower. All in all, I'd buy another one for my son's bathroom (if I can catch it on deep sale again!).
Overall a solid gadget
November 11, 2015
This is close to a 5 star product to me. I have a couple of minor issues:1) The shower head is large and heavy (for a shower head), but the joint isn't super stiff. If you tilt it at an extreme angle, it will stay there, but you have to let it sit for a moment before you let go. No biggie yet, but I fear it may wear down over time and only sit at an angle that gravity allows.2) There is no volume control on the speaker. Luckily, my Galaxy S5 allows me overclock the volume because sometimes podcast-quality audio loses out to the white noise of a shower.3) The charging cable is proprietary like it's an early 2000's cell phone.I like everything else! It's a great shower head and I would like it without the speaker. I haven't tried taking a call from the shower, and likely will not, but I like the functionality of the speaker and play/pause control overall. It is also easy to deal with pairing multiple devices to it.-----A couple updates after a month of use:1) The battery lasts a long time. I use this thing nearly every day and had my first charge just a few days ago. So I would guess I got a good 12 hours of playback from it.2) This is not a water-saving shower head. It feels great but just sucks hot water through the pipes like it's been lost in the desert for weeks.
A fun shower device.
April 14, 2015
Not a bad product.Good - Works well, sound is good, and the shower head is nice and large.Bad - Water flow is quite large and we have trouble with 2 showers back to back without running out of hot water with a 40 Gal tank. I have turned up the temp of the heater to remedy.I paired my iPhone with the speaker and it worked fine. My wife then paired hers with it the next and it worked good. When I tried mine again it wouldn't connect with the speaker. I have a feeling that it only allows pairing with one phone. I will need to work with it again later.Glad I got it at a very good sale price as anything over $40 is not worth it, at the end of the day it is a basic shower head and small Bluetooth speaker.
Used two together - worked out great but requires support
June 21, 2017
Used two of these arms - one for extending height and one to center over shower (like an "L"), with Delta RP50841 (lighter square rain head). Worked out great because of adjustability. No leaks. I would have given these 5 stars, but the wing levers really do not hold position. I addressed this by adding a chrome chain from the wall for support. I'm okay with this because it looks "industrial" and is a temporary fix, but probably not preferred by most.
Useful but I wish it was sturdier
May 8, 2017
It is missing a sturdiness that could lend itself to holding up heavier faucets but it is useful for certain. We acquired a rainfall head and we wanted it to be positioned more towards the middle of the shower. Our shower head though does use a switching valve near the base of the main waterfall piece that will switch the water between the hand held and the overhead. due to the somewhat flimsy nature of this faucet extender it often requires adjustment while in the shower.
Easy to adjust height, extendable, what's not to like.
December 14, 2016
as compulsive movers, a hand held shower that I found on a discount years ago is the first thing that goes in the packing box (ikr? weird strokes for weird folks lol). But for washing pets, cleaning the shower stall, etc, I simply cannot go back to a standard wall/ceiling fixture. The one we have is the best for our needs and is one of the easier installs in the world. It also sits at 45 degrees so the added height is a great feature. In short we would never part with it.In our current home, however, the spout from the wall is way too low - even for this more stand-up contraption. Not an issue for my shorter build, but could not imagine how my taller husband managed. Thing is, he usually never complains about anything, so when he did moan about the low-height-and-hence-ducking, I started my hunt. After other unsuccessful attempts at extensions, the Delta extension fit the bill perfectly.Did I mention, that we also have a water filter attached to the whole thing? The whole damn thing looks like some p* mpd out alien fire sprinkler - lol, but hey, the softer hair, increased pressure, and the aah! moment when you step into the shower; is good dividends.Tip: Don't give up on the first attempt at install, my husband did, and I had no issues with installing and making this work with different parts made by different companies.One star knocked off for leaking at the elbow, (fixed that with a new valve I got from the HW store).
I'd opt for something longer. This is actually shorter by two inches than the one it replaces.
September 27, 2016
Usual high quality Delta plumbing product. Easy to install and extend my shower head further into the tub center.Some info from the seller.Backed by Delta Faucet's Lifetime Limited WarrantyChromeMounts to wallAdaptable with standard showersAdjustable up and down 18 inchesBrass ConstructionThe Delta 12-Inch Adjustable Shower Arm lets you adjust the height and angle of your standard or raincan shower head, extending it up and out. Whether you're looking for a few inches of added headroom or need to mount a raincan shower head without a ceiling-mount shower arm, this product puts control of your shower experience into your handsFrom the ManufacturerThe Delta brand is focused on being more than a maker of great products: we're using water to transform the way people feel every day. Our products are beautifully engineered inside and out with consumer-inspired innovations like Touch2O Technology, which lets you turn your faucet on and off with just a touch, to In2ition Two-in-One Showers that get water where you need it most using an integrated shower head and hand shower. We’re committed to making technology for faucets, showers, toilets and more feel like magic that makes your busy life a little easier, because we believe there’s a better way to experience water.This does work and it's a quality product so my criticism is more about the function. As it turns out, if you're in the shower and you're not that tall, which my wife isn't, then you can't reach the top portion to actually adjust this. And for me, a tall and pretty strong guy, I found that levers / little metal bars that are used to tighten and loosen the adjustment threads need to be pretty tight for the shower head to stay in the desired position. Not a big deal but when you're trying to loosen it to make an adjustment, it's actually pretty hard to do so if you're planning on adjusting your shower head height and angle per use, you might want to consider these thoughts.
As far as mission objective goes, it does the job.
January 2, 2015
Well it doesn't leak, which was the initial concern for this product. The knobs are small and the short handles hurt when you turn it, so I had to use a washcloth to reposition my Thunderhead shower head to the elevated position. It moved around due to the weight of the showerhead and I had to tighten it with serious effort to get it to stay in place. Then when I wanted to reposition it, a lot of effort (accompanied with some pain) was needed to loosen the knob from it's tight fastened position. Other than that, I feel the picture makes it seem longer than it looks in real life; it actually seems kind of short when you are holding it in your hand. I needed this because my wall pipe is located too low and my showerhead hits me in the face when I go to turn the water off, so as far as mission objective goes, it did the job.
May 27, 2013
Great product, it allows me to get the water in the best position for me and all the users with out having to turn the actual shower head, I love it and I am now outfitting the other shower with the same product.

We weren't equipped
February 25, 2017
We used this for a while and the first impression was great. We ended up continuing to use the speaker as it was good quality, but removed the shower head. It uses so much water that after 5 minutes, it drains the water heater and there's no more hot water. Unless you have a huge water heater, this isn't a good choice.
As far as the product it works great. The sound is good and sincs with no ...
December 18, 2016
There are 5 of us and each have our own phones. When we would go to to take a shower we had to find the last person to use it and have them shut their bluetooth off in order for it to work with our phone. Then, the second issue is don't expect your hot water to last long. This shower head is HUGE. Three of us used to be able to take a shower before letting or tank reheat. And even then we didn't have to wait that long. With this thing, you run out of hot water before the first person is out. So beware. As far as the product it works great. The sound is good and sincs with no issue as long as you are using one phone. The water pressure isn't forceful but its not show either.
December 16, 2016
It's a little tricky connecting your Bluetooth to it as the instructions are not clear (hint: it requires using the first 2 buttons). Once connected, it does as it advertises and plays music while you shower. Unfortunately the max volume is not very high - more of a "background noise" level. I also tried a few phone calls and that's where it is seriously lacking. Again, with the volume being low, you can't hear the caller...and they can pretty much just hear the water. That really didn't matter to me because I don't need to have a phone in my shower. I was more interested in the music. The shower head itself works well but is not solid. It's a very lightweight piece of plastic that I could see cracking rather easily if dropped a time or two. Hopefully a family member will enjoy this because I've decided to pack it back up and give it to them for Christmas!
Great for large hot water heaters does not come with water saver. You will be taking cold shower if small hot water tank
January 26, 2016
Does not come with water saver I only have a 30 gallon hot water tank so I run out of hot water using this. This is the only reason for the 3 star. If I had a larger hot water tank and did not need the water saver then I would like it much more. The blue tooth sound is great with music have not spoke on phone while in shower yet though and who does really ? I took the water saver out of old shower head and put in this one and has been ok all though still the hot water does not last as long as the other shower head :(
It would be great but it goes through the hot water
December 6, 2015
It would be great but it goes through the hot water. If your like me and want to listen to some music while you shower this gives you 3 songs--- and no more hot water. It is great for that time--- but would be so much better if it had 2 streams instead of 4 going all around. To much to soon. They only 2 ways to fix 1.) Less output 2.) Bigger water heater.....I'll op for the shower head replacement. The speaker is no big deal, kind of like the old radio speakers, hollow sound and low.
May 18, 2017
Poor job of holding position if shower head is very large or heavy. Despite continued tightening, comes loose at any adjustment. Way over priced for what it does.
Better if had an adjustable connection at supply connection
April 29, 2017
I installed this today and no matter how many times I tried, the arm would always be at a horizontal position for being able to be adjusted. In order to get it in the right position, I had to use a smaller rubber gasket connecting to the main supply pipe. It would have worked much better had the connection had a adjustable connection there as well. I would have given it 5 stars if that would have been the case. I do not know how the thinner gasket will work over time period I am worried that it will leak.
Better then plastic...
April 6, 2017
It leaks a bit out of one of the joints but its not too bad. Its better then the plastic one that came with my new head came with...
com/dp/B00WO3SRAG/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_39) which is pretty heavy for a metal shower head
January 29, 2017
I purchased this to extend my rainfall shower head (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WO3SRAG/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_39) which is pretty heavy for a metal shower head. I've had problems with it slipping in the beginning especially when first starting up the shower, so I've tightened both handles several times since I first set it up. So far, it hasn't slipped the past week but we will see how long it holds up. Will update and increase rating if it holds better as time passes.
Works but not great with heavier rain shower heads...
January 6, 2015
This faucet extender looks great and it might be just fine for a smaller shower head... however... it does not support much weight.I put a plastic rain shower head on the end of this extender and it drooped down with both hinges tightened after a few seconds. I then readjusted and tightened the hinges a bit more tighter than I was comfortable with. It holds now, but I am a bit worried about the long term viability of this extender.
This is not a 12 inch extension and restricts flow...
July 4, 2013
I gave it 3 stars because technically it works and it's cheap. You should know that this is not a 12" extension. It is a 9" extension, which is the same length as the Danze D481150 9-Inch Adjustable Shower Arm with High Flow, Chrome which has a larger diameter feed tube (for higher flow) with adjusters that are more sturdy and will work better with heavier shower heads such as the Moen S6320 Velocity Two-Function 8-Inch Diameter Rainshower Showerhead, Chrome which we also purchased here on Amazon.To sum up, the diameter of the tubing used in this product does not match the diameter of the Shower Arm coming out of the wall. It's much narrower and could restrict water flow, which is not something you want if you are using a Rain Shower type shower head. It's also very thin wall construction and flexed quite a bit during installation. It felt to me as though any really hard cranking on it with a wrench would probably bend it. The Danze I linked to above has the same diameter Tubing as our shower arm, so it matches better and in my opinion, is a higher quality product.

Stopped charging after a few months. No response from company.
August 1, 2016
Liked it, while it worked. A few months after purchasing, the battery stopped charging (only ever used the included charger). When I plug it in to charge, the indicator light turns red and stays that way. Now no longer have bluetooth speaker, just a rather nice shower head. I both called, and emailed, H2oVibe on several occasions, but never got a response from them. I wish I could recommend this device, and maybe I just got a dud, but with the lack of support and accountability, I would recommend going with one of the other manufacturers.
Broken Part Washed Away My Enthusiasm
February 24, 2016
I really wanted to rate this higher, because it's very cool and the shower head puts out a nice flow of water as well as great music. But it broke.
A plastic (why always plastic!) ring that holds the shower head at the correct position, broke. Amazingly, there's four recessed tabs around the ring, which decrease the diameter of the plastic. Guess where it broke? One one of those recessed positions.
Now the head won't hold its angle and flops down. Only good for those about 4 feet tall or less.
I'm going to see if I can find a replacement or disassemble and super-glue the piece back together.
Meh. Major water waster, average speaker sound
February 2, 2016
I ended up returning this. The speakers sound marginal and the water flow is pretty weak. There's a huge gap of water coverage in the center of the flow due to the speaker. It uses tons of water- our bill was noticeably higher and I would consistently run out of hot water toward the end of my shower. For $40 I could get better shower heads so I returned it.
The speaker inside it does not sound good at all and does not get very loud
January 5, 2016
Water pressure from this new showerhead suffered in comparison to the extremely old, dried out, busted showerhead it replaced somehow. The speaker inside it does not sound good at all and does not get very loud. In a small, tile shower, the sound of the rain style water dispersant overpowers the volume of the subpar speaker. When boosted all the way, distortion is present and much of the audio spectrum is lost. So if you like dribbling rain showers with lots of quiet, distorted mid to high frequencies, this is the showerhead for you. On the plus side, it does what it says it does. Water comes out of it and it plays music. It just doesn't do either very well.
BE CAREFUL !!! I was sent a broken shower head
December 4, 2015
I bought this shower head as a gift for my boyfriend. He loved it and says the volume gets pretty loud. Also said that the shower pressure wasn't bad. It took me seconds to install but I noticed that for some odd reason the shower head wouldn't stay in any position but down. Its so loose around the rotating ball. I thought maybe they might all like that until I uninstalled the shower head and noticed a piece of plastic around the rotatator ball that looks like it had broken. I then remembered the review on Amazon with the same crack ....... Coincidence or was I sent a returned and broken shower head ? Anyway I'm pretty disappointed. And from the reviews it doesn't look like I would be able to get a refund.
The tightened constantly comes loose
August 3, 2017
Awful arm, the knob to tighten it constantly comes loose and causes the arm to fall so the shower head faces the wall.im constantly reangling this thing and can't wait to find a better one.
Meh, no. Would not buy again.

Got this with the Rainfall High Pressure 6 shower head. Not sure where the problem is but water pressure was greatly diminished and I removed the "whatever" from the shower head.
Does not work properly
May 29, 2017
Did not fit properly on our shower spout. When properly tightened it was off kilter by about 25 degrees. Making it unusable. Being 6'4" I was really looking forward to raising our shower head. Now I am searching for a new solution.
I would not recommend this shower arm.

I have been using this shower arm for about a week and am indifferent. The aesthetics are great and the material is quality including the joints which do not leak. The product falls short in function as the adjustable joints cannot be tightened reliably by hand.If you intend to use this shower arm with a heavy shower head such as a rainfall design, I would suggest that you look elsewhere. As others have pointed out the design of the wing nut tighteners is far from ergonomic. I have pretty incredible finger strength, and I struggle to tighten the joints enough to keep the shower head in place. Additionally, the handles are not comfortable to grasp, which exacerbates the issue. As such, I was required to use a wrench to tighten the base joint more permanently, which renders the adjustability function useless.I am considering returning this item and replacing it with something more satisfactory.
Cheaply Made Thin Pipe That Bends
May 14, 2015
Delta usually has good quality products. I've installed 2 of their shower heads before with no issues in the past 10+ years.This extension is cheaply made. The pipe flat out bent when I was turning it by hand. Additionally I don't consider myself to be a rather strong guy. I'm not exactly going out and winning any arm wrestling contests.My advice is skip on this product go to your local hardware store, and buy a more sturdy pipe and two connectors.
If your Rain Head is over a pound there is a good chance this will not hold it upright
August 17, 2014
For Smaller shower heads. If your Rain Head is over a pound there is a good chance this will not hold it upright. I have the Culligan C115 RainDIsk Showerhead. It's over a pound and it won't stay up. No matter how hard you tighten it, you have to watch it slowly droop down to vertical. This extension is really 9", but does look nice. It's design, not so much. Poorly implemented wing nut tighteners. If it just had knurled ends to keep from slipping it would work great.So far, I have tried filing the thin edges of the rotating parts to make them rougher and hold better. It worked right up until I ran warm water through it. That was enough to let it begin to fall again. Mostly I tightened it very tightly, with pliers and a bar through the handle for more pressure. Tried a wrench. Tighten it after every movement for best results. I tightened it many times right up to that point where it's about to break. It would still slip if the bar was 45 degrees or more from vertical. That's how you know it's a poor design rather than just not tightening it enough. Pretty disappointing, considering it's just a friction problem. I'm a tinkerer and I will find a solution, but you shouldn't have to go through all this. I'll probably insert some rough edged washers so it will grip.It's hard to believe more people aren't complaining about this. They must have lighter shower heads or not going past 45 degrees.

this product worked well while it lasted (2 months). unfortunately it did me no good after. I tried to return it but it was too late. my sister however bought the same one and hers is still going strong. maybe I got a defective one. who knows.
Only lasted 3 months.

After purchasing this product the blue tooth device broke after 3 months. In those 3 months our water bill doubled and the length of our showers shortened. It was not until I put 2 and 2 together I realized it was directly related to this shower head. The amount of water it disburses is substantially more than other shower heads. Since replacing it my water bill went down and the length of our showers increased
I loved this product it was amazing I wish the seller would contact me to discuss my options!

BUYER BEWARE!! At first I would have given this product a 5 star review. Although, as of 2 days ago the speaker stopped working, and I am told by amazon that it is not eligible for a return. I loved this product it was amazing, at first. Now it looks ugly and is useless. I only wanted the speaker replaced without having to purchase the entire shower head. I only had this item for two months before the speaker just stopped working one day and I am left with an ugly shower head. I would not by this item again. BUYER BEWARE
Speaker unable to charge. Worthless.
November 15, 2016
Shower head is good, haven't had any problems in 6 months with it, and the flow is good. The speaker worked great for the first couple weeks, but then it died and when we took it out to charge it, it wouldn't. Either the speaker won't charge or the charge is flawed- because we've never been able to get it to work again. If the shower head was super amazing I wouldn't mind, but I'd rather have our old shower head back if the speaker isn't going to work on this new one. Pretty disappointed, wish we would've gotten a working replacement.
Didnt work for me at all

I got this item on 6/3/16. Shower head works fine. However the speaker doesn't hold a charge. I left in plugged in from 11pm last night to 7am this morning. If it is plugged in it will power on. But as soon as I disconnect the speaker from the power source it will not turn on. I will be exchanging the item to try one more time.
I ordered this with two day
Update 7/2/16: returned and refunded. However now the price of the item has went up from 37.99 to 44.99. I will not be repurchasing.
Nope nope nope

I've screwed these on over 15 times and no matter where I start the threads once tight it's not in the position I need it to be. Since the "nut" doesn't move independently of the arms there's no way to get it straight and tight. See pics.

Disappointing. Husband went to install this and the arm bent so it's unusable. He wasn't exerting an unusually large amount of force or otherwise abusing the way it should be used so maybe there was a flaw or a weakness in it? Either way, a waste.
Don't waste your money

This extension arm will not hold the weight of my 12" rain shower head. There was an old extension arm, similar in look and function, that had been left by the previous owner and it also was not holding up a lighter shower head in there. The old extension arm sprung a leak and sprayed water all over the bathroom. Now that I see this one is basically the same, I'm going to return it.

Have you ever bought something and just scratched ur head? This is one of those products. The end that screws on to your existing shower head nipple is fixed. That means there is no way to easily index this extension in to the proper orientation for your shower head. My scratch your head comment is aimed at whomever designed and manufactured this not once tried to install it.
didn't work for me
May 28, 2014
I am not sure who designed this~you have to turn the whole 'arm' or 'unit' to attach it to your existing pipe. For me, once tight, it ended up sideways. Why wouldn't there be something at the end of it like there is at the end of a hose, where you just turn that onto the pipe?very disappointed.
Pass this one over.

It does what it says mostly. It fits your shower pipe. It swivels and when tightened it will stay in place. The build quality feels cheap since it is mostly plastic. The problem is at the swivel joints the pipe size is cut in half and this limits the amount of water flow to the shower head. It would not wot with a big rainfall head. It could not supply enough water to the shower head to let it function. We bought a much smaller shower head and it had very little pressure also. Ending up just removing this thing. If you are only using a small very basic shower head it may work. Otherwise find a different one.
