Another Oxygenics Believer!

I just came back from Church Camp (Yosemite Bible Camp).
Low water pressure in the Rv section is a common issue in the early AM due to all of the kids taking their showers.
The Oxygenics shower head performed just as advertised.
The wife was very happy with it.
My only issue was that the holder will not keep the shower head in place.
It tends to droop down. (the little ball joint is what I am refering to)
Almost like the head is too heavy for it.
Anyone else had this issue? Have you come up with a fix?

Have a great day!

Bill

I used the open ended clip type holder and it has two "settings" for different angles and kept the hand wand hose attached. My only issue with it is the plastic hose gets a kink right at the shower head when you hold it lower. I was considering putting a metal type hose on it, but they weigh more.

And this shower head was put on the first night we camped in the Windjammer, also the day we picked it up from the dealer. One of the quickest and best upgrades you can get in a camper.

As far as the low pressure, just kick on the camper on board pump augment the low camp pressure. Heck even with just the camper pump, you still get a great shower using the Oxygenics head.

Look in the plumbing section of you favorite hardware store (or Amazon) and get one of those little on off in line valves also. Saves a lot of water during showers.
100% Shower Head Shut Off Valve - Solid Brass - Chrome Finish - Amazon.com
I mounted mine on top of the valve assembly where it's easy to reach.

This showerhead swap was one of the first mods I did to our Windjammer. I used the mount that didn't have the ball movement for the very same reason. I also installed a shut off at the faucet but now the new showerheads have an inline shut off at the bottom of the head for "Navy" showers. We like this showerhead so well we bought two more for the house.

I'm not getting this mod. Are you switching shower heads for less water usage? The problem we have with the factory supplied one is that it points out instead of down.

Better water pressure. My factory shower head, the water "piddled" out of it. With the oxygenics, the water comes out pretty strong. I can tell it's playing tricks with air when I wash my hair, but it's still decent for an RV shower.

It, along with a good RV water pressure regulator are well worth the money (the Oxygenics shower head being much cheaper of the two).

Thanks, I actually have a good stream of water from the factory head.

So did I, but it is nothing like the Oxygenics.

There should be two or three adjustment slots in the wall mount for aiming the head...but I'm sure you already know that!
Also, the Oxygenics head helps the shower experience using the onboard water pump if you don't have hookups.

I assume you are refering to the "Stock" holder that came with the unit.
I will give that one a try.
I also considered placing a small stainless steele screw in the bottom portion of the ball to prevent it from aiming down so far.
I will report back with the fix I come up with.
Thank you all for your comments.

Bill

We were able to use the holder that came with the old showerhead. Works perfect. We installed a shut off right above the handles. Works like a charm!!
