That's interesting, because we bought ours at CW and it did come with the water cut-off button thingie. What we bought was referred to as a "kit", which includes the shower head, the wall hanger, hose, and the cut-off. The cut-off is a separate piece that attaches to the shower head. Maybe they sell the shower head separate also, or at least they did at one time.

I don't think it is really necessary to flush the toilet or take a shower with such finely filtered water.

You are correct. There is no reason to filter water other than drinking water, to .5 microns in a TT.

(Please do not take this as "Oh, so I don't need a pressure regulator") I always recommend one.
So I suppose what you are saying is that you don't know if they installed a water regulator on my 2013 Sunseeker 2300?

I read it as they're NOT regulating water pressure with a specific water pressure regulator but since the water filter decreases the flow of water, it's doing it as a side-effect of it's primary job of filtration.

BUT, bclemens still recommends a separate water pressure regulator be used. (As do many RV'ers suggest.)

FR has not put water regulators on the units, unless they have just started. You do not want your water pressure over 45 lbs. You can hit some CG with 65 LBS and over you could blow a fitting. Most regulators that are not adjustable come pre set at 45Lbs.

If you buy a water filter, I strongly suggest breaking down and spending the money on a Watts adjustable regulator. Mine came from RVWaterFilterStore.com. Great service and I'm very happy with my water regulator (I need it for my lovely locks).

Back to oxygenics. What is the benefit? Do you get what feels like a "good" shower but use less water? It seems like everybody recommends them but just trying to figure out what's the benefit.

That's it. Even if it uses the same or more water- it feels better and gets through my long thick hair.

The stream of water is stronger and makes it easier to rinse off soap.
