Shower Pressure

How much pressure do you normally get out of the stock shower head.

My shower seems to deliver just a dribble.

Check to see if there is a flow restrictor.

My shower pressure was pathetic; switched to the Oxygenics Shower Head and that made a WORLD of difference. Simple change, took less than 15 minutes including installing the new mount, hose, and shower head.

Same here. My original shower head was nothing more than a plastic puck with holes punched in it. Water sprayed, everywhere. It needed to be changes simply because it wasn't helping me shower, but pressure was OK. Pressure is still OK with the Oxygenics showerhead.

I also got a true water shut off for the shower head hose that will not dribble. I don't mind the cold shock turning it back on, but if that bothers you, there is some info here about why it happens.

Agree with previous posters, I replaced shower head with Oxygenics and removed flow restrictor from the nipple on the mixing valve. Lots of pressure now.

I also took this board advise and purchased a Oxygenics Shower Head. I wish I did this a long time. It is amazing shower head for the trailer.

There are any number of normal home use shower heads that you can use. You are not limited to just RV or home units. They all work. I replaced all my cheap plastic sinks and faucets with either Moen or Price Pfister faucets and china Kohler sinks or residential stainless sinks. You can do the same.
That's the fun of making modifications.
