The Delta In2ition 58471-PK Handheld Shower Head Review

Delta In2ition 58471-PK

Today, we are going to dive into reviewing the Delta In2ition 58471-PK hand shower head. This one caught my eye because of its sheer beauty. A very shiny chrome coating makes it stand out with any kind of background.

I mean, look at it; it looks very high quality, and to find out whether it is or not… you’ll need to stick around and read further. Just as a disclaimer, it is priced at a premium compared to others (especially if you choose one of the other colors it comes in).

However, its cost may be excusable if you see what kind of cool things you can do with it. Look at it and tell me it doesn’t look like a “single” shower head. You’d be right to an extent. However, that’s where things get a bit different.

Most are with the traditional design of having separate fixed one and one separates mobile one. Where this Delta unit makes it different is how they integrate two into one.

The handheld wand is in the center, and its outer parts, which make up a “halo” look, are the second shower head. Water comes out from 6 big jets that are in the “halo” part, and 5 more jets come from the handheld part. That’s not even talking about the 8 smaller ones found in the center of the handheld part.

We are going to get into important details of it all below, so keep reading!

Features of The Delta In2ition 58471-PK Handheld Shower Head

This has to be my favorite part, going into the unique features associated with a product. Here we are going to discuss Delta In2ition 58471-PK’s main features.

5 Different Colors to Choose From: In many cases, one color does not suit all. With this Delta Faucet In2ition shower head, you get a total of 5 colors to choose from. The following are Chrome, Champagne Brown, Polished Nickel, Stainless, and Venetian Bronze. Each color looks drastically different, giving one’s bathroom a completely different feel when installed. Do keep in mind that with the change in color comes price change, I’ll cover that further below.

  • H2OKinetic PowerDrench Spray Technology: This technology is unique to the brand Delta. From all the water outputs, you get multiple spray settings. Most regular shower heads simply spray water in one direction and in one frequency. The difference with this technology is it allows the water to pulse at different water pressures and speeds, giving a completely different feel when it actually hits your skin. The best way to describe it is, it mimics an aqua massage.
  • Magnetic Docking: This has to be the easiest way to mount and unmount the portable wand. Typically what you’d do is mount the handheld wand into a holder (slide it into place). However, here, you simply place it inside a space where it belongs, and it stays there… that’s it. It’s called magnetic docking, and this unit does it quite well. A feature I wish others had for sure!
  • 3 Spray Settings: Referencing the H2Okinetic technology these shower heads offer, select from 3 powerful spray options. Select PowerDrench Spray, Massaging Spray, H20kinetic PowerDrench Spray with Massage, and Pause. Alright, so the variety isn’t vast, but in many cases, too many options can cause a headache. They did it right with this one!

Advantages:

Let’s move on to the advantages of this kit. I won’t be wasting your time with insignificant ones, you’ll see exactly what I think are the most beneficial aspects of owning and using the Delta In2ition 58471-PK.

  • H20kinetic Technology is Therapeutic: As I mentioned above, the 3 major options when it comes to spray patterns it has been reported to be very soothing and, in some ways, therapeutic.

This has to be one of the biggest advantages of using this particular model because most others, as you already know… are nothing more than one-speed settings.

  • Detachable Handheld Portion is Very Useful: Magnets have made this world what it is today, and the instance of this kit it’s no exception. Because of its well-engineered design, you can easily take the handheld portion in and out with minimal effort. Most don’t have this option, but I’m super glad this one does because it signals to some the word “simplicity.”
  • Unique and Eye-Popping Colors: This may not be important to most but to some (such as me), you’ll find this a nice surprise that you can actually get a kit that matches the color of your bathroom. Say, for instance, your bathroom is quite dark (navy blue, for instance), you can pick their Venetian Bronze, fitting right in. Vise-versa, when you have a very light theme, you can pick something like the Chrome color or Polished Nickel as a shiny and eye-popping color.

DISADVANTAGES

By no means is this unit a perfect one; in fact, I found a few negatives that I’d like to discuss with you.

  • Price is More with Different Colors: A lot of things can be said about this good unit, but the price is not one of them. As I looked at it, it was listed for just under 140 dollars for the chrome color. I went ahead and chose a different color and started to see its price almost double in some cases, with no real reason why. To be that’s a big minus.
  • Plastic… Could Prove A Problem Long Term: For the price, you would expect to get more metal parts, but unfortunately not here. Almost all parts of this shower head are made of 100% plastic, and the button which you press to go between different settings is also made of plastic. There are instances when these shower heads started to not go into the selected spray mode due to the plastic gears wearing down inside.
  • Low Water Pressure: While this patented technology is quite nice for getting wide spray patterns, it fails miserably when it comes to water pressure. Assuming your water pressure is good before you install this one, you can expect it to go down a bit when this unit is installed. This may or may not be an issue for you, depending on your personal requirements.
