Need new shower head

Our shower head is about to die. It has had some pressure issues for a while now and last night I noticed the shut off valve was falling apart.

We mostly boondock so our water pressure is the built in pump. I am not sure what the pump is rated at, however were are in a toy hauler with decent pressure/volume. We spend weeks/months at a time in our RV, not just "weekend camping trips".

We currently have the Dura Faucet 400 series shower head and we have been happy with that.

I know lots of people are happy with their Oxygenics shower heads.

The 3 main heads I have been looking at are the Dura 400, Oxygenics Furry and the Oxygenics 88446. They are all similar price.

Does anyone have feedback or comparisons between any of these models? Is there a shower head that I should add to my considerations list and why?

Bought the OxygenicsRV and we love it over what was in the coach (which was OE from ‘02).
Only down side - it doesn’t have a valve on it.

And FWIW - I also installed a water tempering balance valve to better utilize my hot water and prevents one from scalding themselves.

We have the Oxygenics Fury since 2016. It works great for us. Doesn't have a flow stop valve, but has a flip valve which slows the water to a trickle to maintain temp. It does not stop the flow completely.

We tried different shower heads throughout the years. When we got the Oxygenics head what a difference.

Thanks for the feedback.

We rarely use the shutoff on ours.

Our typical use is to turn the hot water on enough to get the water flowing with out fluctuating. We then add cold to control the pressure and temperature. This reduces the total water output to help conserve a bit.

Just before coming on here I looked at our local store. The only one they have is the Furry in stock so we are going to try it.

I donít know what I did wrong, but I bought one of the Oxegenic (so?) shower heads with the hose. Itís not as good as the original one, so I cleaned out all the little holes and reinstalled the original. Happy now. I didnít see any better flow or pressure, so I just kept the semi shutoff valve.

Hopefully you will have a better experience than me if you get the Oxegenix.

Which model of Oxygenics? Which model is your original?

I know many people say get the Oxygenics, that is like saying buy a Ford or a Chevy. There are lots of models and the do not all do the same things.

We are the weird ones.... hated the Oxygenics shower head and ended up returning it.



We replaced it with https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1



Works great, has a shut off, and was a whopping $12 on Amazon.

We have the Oxygenics Body Spa and I noticed it has the shutoff at the RV valve instead of at the hand held part, I don't remember if I installed it that way of if the shutoff was already on my RV. I want to try removing it and installing it on the hand held because it is tricky trying to find it when your eyes are closed.

We bought the original Oxygenic but replaced it for some reason. When the hose gave up in our current rig I found our old Oxygenic head and re-installed it. We have a demand water heater so we donít stop the flow. I did notice a stray stream of water from the side of the head today though.
