They say if you buy this from Bricor directly, they will adjust for PSI you're pushing? mmmmm.. Interesting.

there is an interesting thread on the IG16 site that even though it is focused on drinking water, has some shower info

I emailed Bricor and asked them what GPM and PSI rating would work best for their Ultramax Shower Head and this is what they said...

'Unfortunately we haven't a clue? We don't know your system that well,

engineering'


So it would be a gamble to spend $75 for a shower head. Confused

I wouldn't spend a lot of money on a tricked out shower head. We get shower heads in our office to take home and try out all the time. These new ultra low flow shower heads, well, some of them just suck, and thet're not cheap. Remember, you're not trying to recreate a home shower situation, you're just are trying to rinse off. I think your best bet is going to be a hand held sprayer.

I think I'm going with this shower head. Has anyone ever seen or used one?

That is until I just found this one... maybe I'll just order a bunch with return policies and do a YouTube review.

This is what we use (zodi extreme) and it's perfect for our needs. As you indicate, it's great to have the flexibility to carry it off and shower away from camp. Simple to heat, simple to pressurize and 4 gallons provides for two generous showers. Much simpler than messing with the onboard water system, and freedom to shower away from the van is nice.

YMMV
