I was thinking of this. It has good reviews. I know it does not have good Feng Shui but all I care about is that it work.

Perry,

I have the Camco because I wanted a shut off in the handle. The shut off button is very stiff and hard to move, and the head still drips a little even in the off position. The price is right, and I still use it, but I will replace it if I find one with a better shut off.

Note that the small constant flow when these showerheads are "off" is a feature, not a bug. It is deliberately designed that way so you know the main valve is still turned on. It my not be the way you want it to work, but it is deliberate.
I had an Oxygenics in my house until a major remodel and it had a very clumsy shutoff, a rotary thingie, but now with the pushbutton I may upgrade the moho: I really like the spray design.

I have found that while using the pump to take a shower that you have to have the flow rate above a certain threashold or the water temperature flutuates as the pump cycles on and off. I use the pump 100% of the time till I can find a pressure regulator that actually works as opposed to being used to throw at ferrel dogs. I have not looked at Walmart yet.

I have what I believe to be the original 1972 Alsons shower wand in my 1972 trailer.

It recently started leaking at the spray head. We do a lot of boondocking , no city water connection and the off pushbutton on the shower head is very nice to conserve water. I really like being able to quickly shut off water with one hand, not just turn to a trickle. Does anyone know of a replacement that will function the same, It sounds like the Oxygenics are very nice but "trickle" water, not shut off. It may sound small, but as my trailer has no grey tank when we boondock every cup of gray water has to be carried away by yours truly.

Go to the plumbing section at Home Depot or any other big box store (or Amozon.com) and get an inline 1/4 turn shutoff valve (see posts #2 and #8 for a link to Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ). Put one on mine and it works great.

I like the Oxygenic shower head but looks to be attached directly to the supply line. Our AS has the shower supply hose attached low down at the faucet controls and held in place by a small plastic hanger. What choices are available. The faucet is working well and I don't need to replace it.

The problem I am having with shutting the shower all the way off causes really hot water to come out the next time it is operated especially using the pump. I expect a variable flow pump or accumulator would help with this problem. I expect this is caused by the air bubble in the hot water tank that keeps the pressure higher on the hot water side making the hot water flow faster than the cold water side when opening the shower head.

Thanks I saw that last night online,
Does anyone have this sprayer, does it shut off completely or trickle,
my original 1972 white shuts off completely and we really like that feature.

I see the quarter turn option, but prefer the pushbutton show below

DANCO Shower On-Off Push-Button Flow Control-89184 at The Home Depot


What I would really like is a replacement to my "old outdated" 1972 alsons that has an integrated pushbutton shutoff that turns shower "off" not just a trickle, I know there are ways to do the job with additional 1/4 turn shutoffs, but it is sounding like that just might be a case of older is better.

I just got off the phone with Delta tech support, they bought Alsons several years back, I was told ALL there shower heads with shutoff do not "shutoff" just trickle.
