Replacing Hanheld Shower Head

This weekend while camping, the inexpensive plastic wand type shower head on a hose that came with my Wildwood TT cracked and basically fell apart. I wanted to replace it with an Oxygenics Bodyspa type BUT.. that unit does not have the on/off button on it. This control is a must in a small shower... Anybody have a suggestion of a good brand of wand type shower head on a hose that has a built in water on/off control in it?

I replaced ours with that unit and it works great. It doesn't have an on/off button but it does have a flow control valve at the bottom of the unit that you rotate to almost stop the flow. While it doesn't shut the water completely off, it slows it down to almost a drip. That actually helps because with the shutoff the water would be cold when I first turned it back on but now it's the same temp when I turn it back up.

You need to purchase and install a separate water shut off valve on the faucet end of the shower hose. They also work much better than the shut off at the wand. They're available at any hardware store for less than $10.

we found that the trickle is easy to deal with and don't plan on adding a separate shutoff valve to our Oxy.
we love ours and it's truly a great and inexpensive mod if you use your shower a lot.

Adony. You can find a shower hand with a shut off in places where they sell materials for healt care. They have severals models that they sell with the shut off button for the water flow that you are looking for. Several of my tenants that need a seat and a grab rail in their tub get these shower items with the button.
