While this system matches the finish in the rest of our bath, it took a lot of unexpected and unplanned work. We almost lost tile from 1962 as a result, but was able to recover. The system did not fit on ours, so the entire ensemble needed to be replaced. This led to paying more money for tools we didn't own. It also left us without our bath for a few days! Once in, it looks great; however, it is a WATER SAVER indeed. There is barely a trickle of water coming out; we didn't have a water pressure issue prior to this replacement. In addition, the construction is, to put it plainly, cheap. For a home that is not your own, and/or for someone on a limited budget, this would work. For those that want a higher quality bath, I would avoid this system.
