handheld plus fixed showerhead question

11 years ago

i want to have a fixed showerhead w/a handheld in the shower for the kiddos. my question is this, in our old house, we had a diverter (i think that's what it's called? it was a little metal piece that screwed on/off) attached to the showerhead spout where it came out of the wall. to that we attached the hose for the handheld. when we wanted to turn the handheld on/off, we just squeezed a little bar in the valve and that turned it on/off w/no hassle and we could run both heads at the same time. but i am reading on the forums that some people are doing it differently and somehow having a separate control in the trim for the handheld? how does that work and is it worth the extra money?
