Oxygenetic Shower Head

Bought one at Camping World with the President's Day sale. Came in the mail and I took the old shower head off the wall and installed the new one--hose and all. I used the teflon tape and installed the little black washers it came with. It works WORSE than the Newmar shower head (which wasn't bad). So either I did something wrong or I go a bad unit ( but it is a shower head and a hose). So I took it off and put the old one back on...guess I'll return it for my money.

I had the same experience. Worst piece of junk I've seen. Much prefer the Camco multi spray pattern shower head.

Here is my experience. Went to camping world and was looking at them. The salesman told me if i did not like it he would gladly refund my money. Bought it and brought it back to the motor home. Unscrewed my original one. Installed the new unit. Took a shower, Wife took a shower, debated on whether or not I should buy two for my stick and brick home. They make more difference in campgrounds with low water pressure than I would have ever believed possible. It works very well. I went from having a weak shower to having a normal stick and brick experience shower.

Have to agree with you. It did work a bit better than the original in my MH but definitely not worth the money.

After installing the Oxygenetics I turned it on and removed it thinking something was wrong with it. About a year latter, and having read all the great reviews, I decided the first one was defective and so bought another one. The new one sprayed the same as the first one. However, this time we went ahead and tried using it. Even though the spray did not look anything like I thought it should, we decided we liked it better.

Your experience duplicates mine. We frequently stay at a campground with very low water pressure. The Oxygenics works better in this situation than any other I have used. I would slightly prefer my old Moen in high pressure situations but if you stay in places with low pressure then the Oxygenics is a good solution.

My current motorhome is my 5th RV. I have used Oxygenics shower heads in a PopUp, 5er, and two other motorhomes.

I picked up my new motorhome in Florida, (to drive back home to California). I actually purchased a new Oxygenics shower head, (also on sale at the time at my local CW), and carried it in my luggage on the flight out to FL.

The first morning after taking delivery I really wanted to make sure to be guaranteed a good shower in my new motorhome! it worked great with the water pressure at Disneyworld's Fort Wilderness RVPark/Campground.

I really do not enjoy the standard RV shower head included in new RVs. Especially with low city water pressure, or when using the RV's water pump.

IIRC, there was another thread about this shower head, something about making sure the hose was installed correctly. Maybe there is a check valve or something similar.

I guess it depends on what you are used to. If you already had a good shower head with great water flow and a nice spray pattern, then the Oxygenics would not seem to be an improvement. I had the original POS and with state park water pressure going through filters and regulator the Oxygenics made a big difference. I don't think I would want one in my house but maybe.

We got a Oxygenics shower head a few years back and like it. We dry camp some and found we get a good shower with only a small amount of water being used. I didn't install the flow regulator that came with it because I didn't need it.

I purchased one online cause I frequently stay in CG's with low water pressure. I like it better than the original one that came with my coach especially in low water pressure conditions. When I return home in the spring it goes into the S&B. I would certainly purchase one again.

Agree with the improvement it makes with lower water pressure. Added one to my outside shower also because the stronger but narrow stream works great on the dogs.

Well I guess that settles it. It isn't worth the money to me--the original does a better job. Guess I'll be avoiding places with low water pressure.
I did buy a 2 head shower head I saw on Groupon for the S&B and was able to easily remove the H2O saver and the pressure in the condo was a huge success. May have to repeat for the MH--I am not planning on any boon docking so let the water flow.
