Shower head won't shut off

Can one of the monitors direct me to a thread or threads that discusses the topic of why the new shower heads (for example in our '07 Safari 25' SE LS) does not completely stop the flow of water? Purchased a second one & it leaks also --- DA!
Reputable dealer in Los Banos says that's the way it is --- double DA!

I've heard that it's a safety feature to remind you to turn the water off when you finish. All that I've seen "leak" like this. There are cutoff valves available at hardware stores that you can just insert in the line. Got my first one at either Lowe's or Home Depot and it still "leaked" a bit. However I recently found one at Menard's - if you live in the Mid West - that cuts the water off completely. Wander around the plumbing dept at your local hardware stores and you'll likely find one.

its suppose to. This keeps the even temperature for when you are showering. If you want 10 seconds of ice cold water then get a regular shower nozzle head at Home Depot.

Thanks to all for the quick responses. I'm going to try an in-line shutoff valve first to determine if it will shut off the water 100% while showering. And second to determine if indeed you will get a shot of cold water if the shower head doesn't dribble (as its supposed to do accoriding to my fellow airstramers).
We are away camping 4 nights this coming weekend. That should be sufficient for test purposes.
Regards to all,
