Most of us are used to showerheads having only one sprayer face. Although it satisfies most people’s needs in a sound shower system, you can always do much better.
For the past couple of years, the number of shower models with dual showerhead design has been booming. The more exceptional shower experience that they can provide is a huge selling point for the masses seeking to have their sore muscles massaged after spending hours at the office.
Among the top-rated dual-sprayer showerheads is the Delta Faucet 58580-PK. In this Delta dual shower head review article, we’ll walk you through everything that you need to know about this system.
Delta Dual Shower Head Review: The Defining Features
- Minimalistic, elegant design
- Intuitive dual shower head arrangement
- Wide range of spray settings available
- Minimal maintenance needed
- Plastic construction
Beautiful and Intuitive Design
The designers at Delta have achieved the right balance between functionality and look with this design. Even with its apparent simplicity, it leaves no doubts that it is a good-looking shower. A bummer, though: even though this shower belongs to the higher end of the price spectrum, the construction is out of plastic instead of metal. While we do understand that plastic is lighter and will put less stress on the shower arm, it is not known for being the most durable material.
Nonetheless, you can beautify the shower with a variety of finishings. The standard option is chrome, but you can opt for polished nickel, stainless steel, or Venetian bronze depending on your personal preference.
Next to the angled, fixed shower head that most people are familiar with, there will also be a pivotable rain-can on top and pointing downward. The resulting water sprays from both of these showerheads will provide the kind of coverage that not a lot of showerheads on the market can offer.
The Rainfall Experience
The combination of the rain-can, which can replicate a relaxing ‘rainfall’ effect with the massaging blast of the fixed showerhead, can be quite therapeutic. Additionally, since both of the showerheads will spray at you from two different angles (top-down and sideways), your entire body can be attended to without you having to manually adjust the angle every time you want to clean elsewhere.
This shower has seven spray settings on record. Apart from the rainfall from the raincan alone or combined with the fixed shower head, there are full body spray, massaging spray, full-body spray with massage, shampoo rinsing spray, and pause. That’s enough to cover the showering requirement of just about everybody.
One particular feature that users really like is the ‘Pause’ mode. It allows you to reduce water usage by stopping the flow while you’re lathering shampoo or doing something else. After you’re done, you can continue where you left off immediately at the temperature that you had set it to without having to go through the dreaded temperature changes that usually happen with showers.
Mineral deposits are a real threat to the longevity of your shower. When built-up to sufficiently large pockets, they can clog up your showerheads. The ‘Touch-Clean’ spray holes on this shower make it relatively easy to clean out these deposits just by wiping them off with your bare hands.
