Shower Water Pressure

Sure seems low
1 Can you turn the pump on using CG water to build up pressure or is that only for water tank usage.
2 I was looking at some after market shower heads that build up pressure are they any good or just hype any recomendations.
Thanks
Mike

1. pump is used for onboard water tank or pumping RV antifreeze into the plumbing.

I had an Oxygneics shower nozzle in my Sabre. It really made a difference.

Had similar issue until.....

I unscrewed the hose at the faucet and then noticed that there was an obstruction. Is it just the shower head? If you unscrew the hose and turn on the water, do you have the same problem?

Another consideration / guess is that if it's just the shower, perhaps there is some lime buildup inside the head. One time that was the case with a shower head I had inside my home (my other "home" and was rectified by soaking the head in a little CLR solution for about an hour.

Get an Oxygenics showerhead. The difference in pressure is amazing. Now if we could only get them to make a kitchen facuet.....

I agree the Oxygenics showerhead helps, but I also added an adjustable water regulator which helped even more. Adjustable Water Regulator - Lead Free - Valterra A01-1117VP - Faucets & Inlets - Camping World
