Shower Head

Does anyone know of a good handheld shower head with water cutoff that really works? The one that came with my 2007 20' Safari doesn't come close to cutting the water completely off. Don't really need anything fancy but something that works unlike the standard shower head.

The shower heads are typically designed to allow a small trickle flow to maintain the temperature of the water in the hose - keeping it warm.

Our 2007 Safari 27FB had a sticker on the shower head that said it was supposed to drip water so you would be aware the water was still on and wouldn't use the button to turn off the water but would turn the handle to the off position.

I am trying to teach my 2 teenage daughters that they can learn to take a stop-start shower but I don't think it is possible

A full shut-off valve is easy. A simple push-on/off valve is available at most hardware stores. Put it on the hose end of a conventional hand-held shower head and attach the hose to the valve. The photo shows how ours is set up.

Thanks for the replies. Will look for a shutoff valve the next time I'm in Lowe's, Hoem Depot etc.

That's a Navy shower - at least on a submarine that can only make 10,000 gallons of water a day. When the evaporator goes belly up, no showers.
