I know the one's sold in the big box retail markets have a lot of plastic and there are several negative comments about the water pressure and the plastic on the hand held unit.
Thank you for your question on the Delta In2ition® H2Okinetic® 5-Setting Two-in-One Shower.
The shower arm connection is metallic, the shower head and wand are non-metallic and the 60" - 82" hose is a stretchable metal.
The make-up of materials in our hand showers are primarily a non-metallic material for the safety of our customers. Metallic hand held wands can hold heat easily and will hurt if dropped on your body. The weight can also be too much for some when holding the wand for an extended period of time.
This model has a flow rate of 2.0 GPM, which may feel like a decreased amount of water if you are used to a shower head or hand held shower with a higher rate, such as 2.5 GPM, though this model has been designed with H20 Kinetic technology, so it will feel like you are actually getting more than 2.0 GPM.
I hope this information is helpful!
