Oxygenics Body Spa

We installed an Oxygenics Body Spa (link) shower head and I can report after a three week trip that it is wonderful. Also installed at the same time was this shower head cut off valve (link).

I did a test before leaving on the trip, and found that our old Camco shower head used 1.3 gallons per minute and the Oxygenics used 1.1 gallons per minute - both were operated with fully open valves using our on board fresh water pump.

The Oxygenics head is so much more powerful and capable of rinsing than any shower head I've ever used in a trailer. It comes with a cut off valve - which really just reduces the flow to a dribble. The valve we installed is a full cut off valve, and also for any position from full on to off. I found that the Oxygenics is fully effective when rinsing when the valve is only about half open.

In short, the Oxygenics Body Spa shower head works better, and uses less water. No, I don't have any stock in the company, but I wish I did!

Its funny I just saw this post after having just ordered the same showerhead, except in brushed nickle. I hope we will like it as much as you do.

If your trailer already has a shower, it is super easy to install a different shower head. We re-used the existing shower hose because it was in good shape. The old shower head will probably unscrew by hand, then just screw on the new shower head. A shut off valve (if used) would go in between the shower hose and the shower head

One of my early Mods and very glad we made the change. Never tested the flow but there was a great difference in the pressure and capability to shower faster.

As RV said you can un-screw the old by hand and add the new one without any tools (& quickly)

The reason to use the shut off that leaves a dribble of water flowing is to avoid the blast of very hot water that can happen with the total shut off. Be careful to not point the shower head at yourself when you turn it back on.

I just did the same replacement and I found I have a constant stream of water from where the showerhead connects to it's hose......
I took it apart and it looks like it has all the right rubber grommets, but it doesn't seem to seat tight
any thoughts?

I would think it's got a minute crack in the Head. Had a similar issue with shower head at home. Could not stop the leak until I closely examined it and found a hair-line crack

Yup, what he said. I think the newer models have the built in shut-off ( a button). Ours didn't and I got one at Lowes or Home D. Very few folks that buy the oxygenic don't like em.
