They are a very good replacement Head for Any shower,RV or Home! They Do use More water than the Factory head that came in our unit! Glenn and I did the Test on City water pressure using Both shower heads! Oxy used MORE! I still like the OXY at home and RV! Youroo!! PS turn your "Control Valves" so the hose outlet is "DOWN" knobs will turn propper way and "Winterizing" shower will drain and NOT capture Water in the Outlet!

This is very true you get a better stream of water with it but the claim that it also saves water is false. At least that was there claim years ago when it first came out....

Did anybody just replace the old wand with an Oxygenics and use the old hose and mount? Will it fit on the original hose and mount?

Yes it will just screw on.... Remember you will need a shut off button. They never use to come with one but some now I see do. So make sure it includes that or you will have to add one......

We bought the Oxygenics BodySpa RV shower head in Brushed Nickel and wound up using the original mount (the included mount was almost non-adjustable) and then also opted to use the original hose because the hose that came with the Oxygenics was stiffer than a board.

Because the shape and angle of the Oxygenics head is radically different than the factory shower head, it sprayed pretty much straight down and was awkward to use especially for us taller folks. That, coupled with it actually using MORE water than the factory head, was enough to send it back The DW hated it.

I realize a lot of folks like the Oxygenics... but... I'm still searching for something better.

Replacing the Shower Head is (usually) only half of your problem. Water Pressure is the real culprit.


A lot of you got a plastic (or maybe brass) "Water pressure regulator" that you attach to the CG Fresh water spigot. Water pressure regulator is a misnomer, Water pressure limiter is a better term


These gadgets were made for RVs back in the day that were plumbed with PVC. As such, they "limit" water pressure to @ 40-ish PSI

Most modern RVs are plumbed with PEX. Unlike PVC, PEX has a 300+PSI bursting (in fact the PEX is more durable than the connectors - those are usually @ 200PSI bursting).

So what do you do? Get this:

http://www.amazon.com/Valterra-A01-1...ater+regulator

And set your PSI to a reasonable 80-85 PSI and you will have residential quality showers in your RV!
