Shower Head

I've read some past posts about shower heads, it seems this one was popular: Handheld Body Spa Showerhead Chrome Is this still a favorite or do you recommend another brand?

We use the same shower head and love it. Feels like a lot of water being used but not true. Going to buy one for the new rv we have on order.

After reading glowing comments here, we got a white one for our FW. I haven't showered with any other showerhead so I don't have anything to compare it to, but we're both quite pleased with the water pressure we get from this one.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Read every page(lots of multiple replies from the same people) of the thread Lori linked. Then notice on the last page (killed the thread) the reply where a guy ran a test of both the stock OEM shower head and the one oxegenics. His result: the stock OEM shower head has a lower flow rate per minute. I'm not gonna waste my money on one of these fancy shower heads just because it is trendy.

We have the Oxygenics hand held and love it. So far I think one of the best things that we have purchased.

Yes, SVCJeff's comparison (post #246) illustrates the comparison. The flow rate for the stock shower head was lower - which for a boondocker would be what one would want. In our case, our stock shower head put out a pitiful spray, even at full on for the hot/cold valves & when we had low pressure from a shore hook up, it was horrible. The Oxygenics's spray provides me with a more powerful spray & I don't have to have the hot/cold valves full on. It probably saves water for us. I even get a great shower with crappy water pressure.

Depends on how you'll use it.

This is the same thing we have found. We can take a shower at half the pressure needed for the old shower head. This doubles our run time. With the Oxygenics we can take showers back to back and not run out of hot water. We have found it well worth the money.

the oxygenics is a water saver no waiting to take a shower after someone
else.
and now you can shut the water off with a valve they have at home depot
it called shut off valve, fits inline just above the shower head and is a
button you push side to side pic below.

Ditto to the several comments about not having to have the knobs turned on much and to two adults being able to take longish showers back to back and still have plenty of hot water even with only a 5 gallon water heater. And this is two adults taking showers after working all day in a hot, humid, greasy environment, so extra washing is required.

In our case, we don't care whether it uses more or less water than the original shower head (which we didn't even try). We like the fact that we get spray pressure.
