Delta Faucet RP50841SS Single Setting Overhead Shower Head Review

ctaOkay I had to write this.

I am in love!

This is my second Delta Faucet RP50841SS, I don’t know about you but I know me – when i buy a second round of something it means I’m completely sold.

This is a fantastic model, an 8” wide square with a rainfall effect when showering.

All you need are plants around your bathroom and the sound of a few birds to complete this beautiful jungle-rescue picture.

Here’s why I love it.

Flow / Pressure / Surface Area

The pipe is a .5” supply pipe (sold separately should you need it otherwise this would fit on your standard shower arm).

The shower head is an 8” square of pure pleasure that rotates on a level plane.

The standard 2.4 / 2.5 gallon per minute falls over you like a soft, rainy day.

And this is not one of those terrible “caught in the rain” incidents – you want to be caught here!

No more trying to squeeze your entire body under a 3 or 4” diameter.

Easy Installation

This can be installed without calling a plumber.

I love DIY – makes me feel capable and efficient.

I have the basic tools but this is simple to install and instructions are included in case you somehow find yourself lost.


The shower ball and nut are constructed from brass and overall has a chrome finish to it giving it a classically simple look.

And that is always a great sign of class and beauty that both screams and whispers at the same time.

This modern will definitely upgrade your overall bathroom environment.

It would suit a modern / contemporary environment best in my opinion.

But don’t let that stop you from buying this little piece of heaven.

Great Warranty

This product has an amazing warranty for for both personal use and commercial use.

This particular model is actually in my gym, that’s how i came across it and why I installed it in my bathroom!

A slightly niggling side effect if you have really hard water, the shower head might end up clogged and needs to be dismounted in order to thoroughly clean it.

Here is a trick for you.

Soak the face of the showerhead in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water for 30 – 45 minutes… otherwise use a rag to wipe away the lime and calcium build up.

Make sure you do it regularly so it doesn’t have a chance to harden up.

This product is a little pricey.

As someone who enjoys beautiful things especially when they make my life more comfortable, this is as close to perfection as you can get without it costing hundreds or thousands of dollars i.e redoing your entire bathroom.


The feeling when standing under this product is impossible to capture.

I’ve envied celebrity bathroom designs before and now I have an amazing shower head that is close to the amazing photos of designer bathrooms on Instagram!

Make sure you get yours, this needs to be sampled up close and in person!
