Oxygenics Shower Head ?

Hi all, I am considering replacing my Oxygenics Body Spa RV shower head with the newer Oxygenics Fury shower head and noticed the Fury comes in two different GPM’s a 1.8 and a 2.0

I rarely if ever camp without full hookups so water usage isn’t a concern…Am I really going to tell much difference between the two ?

I would go with smaller unless you like cold showers! I have a 6g water heater. At 2 g.p.m., that heater would be empty in 3 minutes.

I personally don't think one would notice the difference in volume between the two. Only about 3 cups of water per minute difference.

I'd stick with what you have and use the money on something else you really want and will return more value/performance.

NJKris also makes a valid argument about "cold showers" and small water heaters.

Then you must take really hot showers! Cold water is mixed in as well as the water being continuously heated as you use it, resulting in much longer showers than 3 minutes. But then you know that
I doubt the difference between 1.8 and 2.0 is even noticable.

Can anyone comment on the Fury compared to the Body Spa ? if it's a worthwhile upgrade ? I don't use the shower in the TT I prefer to go to the campgrounds facilities....My DW uses it and thought the Fury might be a nice upgrade.

I need really hot water to wash away all the sin!

It is a nice upgrade. Cutoff button is much easier to use, and there are several spray patterns that are easily changed.

For low pressure situations, the Body Spa "boosts" water better. But it only has 1 spray pattern.

The Fury doesn't boost water as well, so low pressure situations, it doesn't help a whole lot. But the whole family prefers the multiple spray patterns.

I don't know which flow rate we have. We've had it since January 2016.

Very helpful input on the cutoff button. The description on the Fury, that I have seen, mentions the various spray patterns but not a shut off. Maybe I missed it or it is assumed it has the features of the other model.

The cutoff leaves a trickle. But it is on the back of shower head and flips up for water on and down for water off:

We take Navy showers and have never run out of hot water with the Fury. My wife takes longer showers than I do. I can shower 15 min after her and still not run of water. You can't stand there and just let the water run.

I replaced my body spa with a 1.8gpm Fury (never even knew there were different gpm’s!) and I LOVE it.
I usually have water hookups, if anything, but never sewer, so I tend to keep it short (maybe not quite navy!) I have never run out of hot water.

We have never run out of hot water either. 6 gallon dsi propane and it replenishes as its used assuming there is fresh water. Thanks for the review. After 13 years of the stock shower head will be taking the plunge on the Fury. I dont mind the old one, guess I've gotten used to mediocrity

I replaced the terrible stock one with the body spa right away, but then gave myself the opportunity to upgrade again by forgetting to winterize the shower line

Once I forgot to close the low point drains before sucking in antifreeze and it wasnt until I wasted 3 gallons that I figured out something was wrong. Duh! At least you took advantage of the opportunity

Shower head

Not enough difference, I would do the 1.8GPM due to extra water pressure when boon docking. But I have a small 6 gal. water heater and low volume pump.

We love our Fury, the pressure is the key factor, more pressure, less water. We used to have the original Oxygenics

well if you're folically challenged as I am, nothing really matters. Navy shower takes about 5 minutes. So the DW makes up for it!
