IMO, they are junk. I had one and it came apart where the hose connects to the flow control valve after six months. There is a little screw that holds it together, but you cannot access the screw because it is inserted before the two halves of the body are glued together.

Took it back to Camping World, they looked up my purchase on their computer because I didn't have a receipt and gave me a new one. Within days, the second one fell apart in the same way as the first. A real piece of garbage.

Best Rgards!

It is not a shut off valve....


Used to be.

the Oxygenics handheld showerhead's valve has never been a "shut-off" valve. it slows the water down to a trickle but has never turned it off.
that's why many add a separate shut-off valve.
for us, it's not necessary. we do fine with the trickle.

Apologies for late post on this topic - we bought this showerhead last week at Camping World on sale for about $29. The increase in water pressure is nothing short of INCREDIBLE. Bought the lightweigt plastic one for the MH and WILL go back and buy the heavier metal model for the house {upon return in the spring}.

Best thing is with my MH setup I was able to use the original MH hose and the new showerhead went right to it with no problems, and the Oxygenics showerhead fit my original "showerhead hanger" mounting. Didn't use the Oxy parts (hose, washers, fittings, hose hanger) at all. The flow adjustment / shut off valve is a knurled knob that almost completely shuts off the water flow - just as it was designed - and it works just fine. We love it SO FAR.

I just ordered the white plastic one last week. I will report on the install and workability on it later.

This last weekend, I installed the OX shower head and new expandable shower curtain rod that increases the usable space in the shower. Both items are game changers for our shower. Should have done it years ago. In the past, taking a shower in the tiny camper shower was miserable. The water pressure was lousy, the vinyl shower curtain constantly "sucked" into my body...which is a terrible feeling.

With these two improvements, showering in the camper can now rival the pleasant experience of a home shower.

I strongly recommend both products. Also, I did buy the recommended holder...and initially did not install it but it appears that the increased weight of the new shower head may be too much for the original holder. I will install it next weekend.


I'm just excited that it's camping season!

Today I got the wand holder for the Oxygenics shower head from CW. The problem is I don't have the shower head yet. The paperwork says it's back-ordered to 3/7/09. What does that mean? What should I make of this date?

I also installed the Oxygenics shower head with the holder it is needed because of the extra weight BUT it only comes with one hole for one screw I found that isn't enough so we drilled another hole and attached it that way It really needs two plus some sealer just to make it leak proof.

Many shower heads are plastic. That shouldn't be a problem.

I called CW and they told me the shower head is expected to arrive in their warehouse on May 1st. I then received an e-mail answer to the same question. They said it would ship April 13th. Sounds like a Friday the 13th trick tome.
