The handheld shower head in my 5th wheel broke on our last trip and I'm looking to replace it.

On our old 5th wheel I installed an Oxygenics shower head and everyone loved it. My wife and daughters said that it provided enough flow for them to really rinse their hair.

When looking online I see that there is now a Oxygenics Fury RV Handheld Shower Head available. Has anyone installed one of these and is it as good or better than the original?

I won't be needing it anytime soon as the 5th is stored away for the winter but would like to have it ready when Spring comes along.

I’ve had both an original (Body Spa) and a Fury.

The Fury has multiple spray patterns but doesn’t boost low pressure as the Body Spa.

The Body Spa boosts water better but doesn’t have multiple spray patterns.

For my family, we prefer the adjustability of the Fury and that’s what stayed in the shower. Every once in a while, I wish we had the Spa but if pressure is that bad, we’ll fill the freshwater tank and will run off of the pump (which does a pretty decent job!).

An Oxygenics shower head uses about 1 1/2 gallon per minute. I use a shower head with a slow gentle stream. I use about a gallon for an entire shower. If you need to conserve water, an Oxygenics is a poor choice. If you are using hook ups then it doesn't matter.

Shower head heretic here. A shower head is a shower head. Some have one spray, others have multiple sprays. There's nothing magical that makes an Oxygenic any better or worse than any other brand. It's just another shower head.

How much hair do you and your family have?

Just another shower head, but it works way better than the OEM junk from the RV factory.

My hair is medium length and I can still wash it and rinse along with the rest of my body with about a gallon of water. My wife has shoulder length hair or perhaps a bit longer. She probably needs another quart of so to rinse it but she typically does not wash it everyday.

My point is simple a shower head which uses a gallon or more a minute is going to waste a lot of water. When it is important to conserve we do so by wetting down, soaping and then rinsing with a gentile stream of water. If water conservation is not important then turn up the water flow and any shower head can be used.

Completely false.

It sounds like you both have relatively short hair. I have the shortest hair of my wife, daughter, and I and it's probably 2-3" below my shoulders. It's thick- think Fabio type hair. [emoticon]

My daughter is next with hair a bit longer.

And my wife's is even a bit longer than that.

All three of us have very thick hair.

We use LESS water even with a higher flow due to the extra pressure of the water actually getting through the hair vs. a crappy shower head that doesn't seem to help boost the water.

I know it's hard to imagine, but it truly does make a difference.
