Morning fellow DIY's
I have a bathroom with rain shower only coming off the ceiling. Seem like a great idea at first, but now not so. Prefer the option of having both rain shower and hand held shower especially with a lil one.
How can i convert the shower for dual usage without hacking the walls to fit the hand held.
Currently the plumbing is from the roof connected to a rain shower as below. Any advise and likely cost is much appreaciated
Thanks in advance

Have you spoken to a plumber as yet for this project?
Diverter $74 to $499
Hand shower $19.90 to $388
Plumbing cost and any patching of holes unknown.
What some people would call industrial...
Hand shower $19.90+
Chrome tee $8.28
Chrome stop cocks X 2 $13.14 each
Chrome nipple if required $4.13 each
Thread tape $0.78
Plumber would probably laugh at you.
If you could reach the stop cocks to change over when required it will look like an ordinary job at best.
Cheap and cheerful.
If your vanity spout has a screw in aerator an adaptor kit $7.56 will give you the fittings to connect a hand shower that can be removed once your finished using it. Not all basin sets have the thread, I lucked out so I was going to epoxy a thread on till things changed at home.
