Need advice for installing a second shower head


Hello. This is my first post here on the forums. My wife and I just bought a house and I have a question about the shower in our master bathroom. The previous owners completely renovated the master bath and made kind of a strange choice IMO, to only include an overhead waterfall shower head. I think it's cool and nice to have, but not for everyday use.

We've become accustomed to having an actual front facing shower head that's detachable. My question is whether or not its possible to install a second front facing shower head to use in conjunction with the overhead shower. I've attached a couple pictures showing our shower. Is it possible to have them both on or choose one or the other?? If so, how much would something like this cost to either do myself or pay a professional to do it? Thanks!

Depenz on the look you want. With enough chrome pipe and bracket you could have it look good. You could try and branch off and install a shower bar. Really depends how much money you want to throw at it. You could tear out the tile and re plumb it.

Look isn't really a big concern. I'm trying to figure out the cheapest and easiest way to make it happen.

You unscrew the jungle shower head. You screw on the divertor valve one side goes to your hand held the other to jungle shower you reattach... its 33 bucks
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001002C28/...SIN=B001002C28 is 300 bucks but high quality

And it all matches your current finish.

Wow. Sounds too easy Thanks so much. One more question. Does the water come out of both now or can I choose which one? The reason I ask is the water pressure already seems to be a little low coming from the Jungle Shower Head. I didn't know by diverting flow to another device if it will kill the pressure even more.

that one is a two-way, which means one or the other. This one from the same source is 3-way and allows either or both, but as you said, water pressure may be an issue.
