I read the ad. It says the shower head can use as little as 1.5 gallons/minute. Since I am looking to maintain my 1 gallon shower that gives me a total of about 45 seconds for a shower. I don't need oxygen in my shower, just a low flow so I can wet down and later rinse off without using gallons and gallons of water.


I tried one and not sure I'm convinced it is any better than a regular water saving shower head. Probably not worth the trouble to experiment and see which one uses the least amount of water.
One thing though, I noticed my shower head seemed to use more nitrogen than oxygen :-)

You must be showering in nitous oxide. That sure would be an exciting adventure.

I shower in dihydrogen oxide and also use 78% (approx) nitrogen.

Some water pumps are adjustable. You can adjust the pressure. Unless you are talking about when you use city water, then maybe you can just turn up the water pressure on the pump and get the flow you desire.

I adjust mine super low to save water in the tank.

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.


How much hair do you and your family have?


If you mean on the top of my head, not very much anymore. [emoticon] I do have it everywhere else though.lol

The worst is the stuff coming out of my ears. [emoticon] I haven't figured out a good way to deal with that yet. If I use a scissors I end up cutting myself and a beard trimmer bothers me with the humming up close to my ear drums.

The girlfriend has short hair, her pre teen young grand kids have short hair. And the teenagers have short hair on the top of their heads and shave everything else these days,,, even the boys.

I understand the hair thing. I have long hair and use extra water to wet, wash, rinse if the pressure isn't good. The minor little sprays don't even get to my scalp.

On the opposite end of the spectrum - I save water with the Oxygenics with my family even though it uses more water per minute. We are a bunch of wookies with 3 of the 4 of us having long thick hair.

We spend less time getting the shampoo out of our hair than we would with a crappy sprayer and thusly use less water.
