Shower Heads For RVs: What Are The Best Options?
RV fresh water tanks are designed to hold enough water to meet your needs for about five days. These tanks range in size between 30 gallons and 100 gallons, depending on the size and type of rig. If you want to shower when you camp, you’ll want to save as much water as possible while still having enough water pressure to make the experience worthwhile. Two things will help you accomplish this: Taking navy-style showers and having a water-saving shower head.
You’ll want to familiarize yourself with the concept of navy-style showers before you step in. You may find yourself emptying the hot water tank much faster than you think!
What’s a navy-style shower? We’re glad you asked. A navy-style shower is when you use the shower to get completely wet. Then you turn the shower off, soap up, and shampoo your hair. Then you turn the shower on and rinse. If you are using the shower head your RV came with, you may find yourself out of hot water at this point. This brings us to the next thing you can do to help get the best RV shower possible.
Oxygenic shower heads for RVs
If you want to end your RV shower with hot water to spare, an Oxygenics shower head is the answer. Oxygenics has developed shower heads for RVs that will help you save water, yet they still have a satisfying amount of water pressure. So, you’ll finish your shower feeling as clean and fresh as if you took a shower at home.
As a matter of fact, many RVers loved the Oxygenics shower head in their RV so much that they installed one in their sticks and bricks too. Oxygenics makes five different lines of shower heads for RVs to satisfy anyone wanting the best possible RV shower experience.
