    I am looking for a good combination hand held shower and shower head for a contemporary bathroom. This may be out of my price range so if anyone has suggestions about a bar system I would greatly appreciate it.

    I have looked at the Metris S with the thermobalance III from Hansgrohe, but before I spend coin of the realm, I thought I'd ask people in the know. ;)



    P.S. Is there such a thing as a water saving shower head? If there is a good one, I would be VERY interested in knowing about it. Thanks.

    As soon as you say "comtemporary" you can start adding $$$.

    If you are looking at a complete valve try the Delta 1700 pressure balanced or 17T thermostatic models. There are a lot of trim options available, the price is moderate, and your plumber will be lot happier.

    Most modern shower heads are "water saving", but their performances as far as the shower is concerned varies greatly.
