Get yourself the shower head everyone uses and your showers will last 2-3 times longer, it really does work. My 6 year old showers and plays with toys for 15-20 mins at a time before hot water runs out. Is it Oxygenics shower head??? Can someone confirm?
I purchased mine about two years ago, best mod ever.

youroo, I 'think' Kuba was trying to say if you get the shower head people have raved about (his reference to the Oxygenics water saver) that your showers could last 2-3 times longer before running out of hot water.(or FW) At least that's how I read it.

Hmmmm I'm not sure you use less water by switching to the oxegenics shower enabling you to take longer showers...........

Oxygenics specs say 1.6 GPM for the shower head at 40 PSI.
I have no idea what Kuba's original shower head flowed.

Easy to do, just use the outside "factory" shower head forest river uses for all there showers.

Maybe I'll check tonight.

I bet it's the same or even less.

Probably not even a worthwhile difference. Nonetheless I'll check.

Not necessarily...
If your shower head flows 2.0 GPM (at 40 psi)and you take a 5 minute shower you've used 10 gallons of water.
If your shower head flows 1.5 GPM (at 40 psi) you can take a 6.66 minute shower and still only use 10 gallons of water.
That is a longer shower without using more water where I came from.

Is like a garden hose, you put your thumb on outlet and it will give you more pressure, but less water flow.

Huh, so switching to an oxegenics shower head actually will allow you to use more water?

Evidently you need Ms. Amy to read the post and explain it to you.
