I have this shower head and even with the shut offs slow dribble it's very hot water when turned back on. (step aside when turning back on) Love the shower spray but wish the temp was more consistent.

Unscrew the old head screw in the new one very easy.. I think they even come with Teflon tape to wrap around the threads.

"body spa" great way to get more money from it... I bought one when they still called it a shower head.. and am still very happy with it..

I think the blast of hot water is due to thermal siphoning. The hot water migrates into the cold supply. The dribble eliminates this problem for me. Maybe you need more dribble.

I think I recall a tread that mentioned cross siphon with a valve open in the outside shower or winterizing valves - not sure I'll check those as the streams pretty steady when shut off and nearly steam when turned back on.

Here's a link to a thread discussing installing a check valve in the cold water line to solve the blast of hot water LINK

Thanks RVhiker that should solve that problem. Nice not to have to reinvent wheels, when someone else has been there done that.

I did this Oxygenics mod with the inline shut-off from HD about 4 years ago and I've moved it from one trailer to the next. Each time, I just put the old one back. This is one of the best things you can do to conserve water and ease the grey tank from filling too quickly and you'll still get a better shower than the stock head.
