Shower head - thanks Mein


Thank you Mein for your excellent suggestion of this shower head:

Ebay $15 shower head 

It is brilliant! It really feels like showering in a warm rain strom and my 15L of water lasts much longer. No doubt the tiny jets will need more regular cleaning given I usually shower in dam water but, as the shower head may be disassembled, that is a small price to pay.

Mike,
Any idea how many litres per minute on full? No details on the eBay sellers site.
Regards,
Ian

On it's "rain" setting I guess around 3L/minute, with my 12V pump.

I find that with my 15L bucket of shower water I tend to get a little bored before it runs out.

Warning... Mike, Clicking onto your Link for the Shower head , "AVAST my virus checker came up with a Virus warning as soon as I saw a picture of the shower head and asked to do a Virus scan.

The problem was URL: Blacklist, if I read it correctly.

It just links to another Grey Nomads thread. No issue that I can see.

Your virus checker is showing a false positive Peter.

My link points to another GN thread in which Mein posted a link to a shower head on eBay, all is good :)

You're welcome!

"No doubt the tiny jets will need more regular cleaning"

I clean mine with a toothbrush, roughly once a month.

And, after 18 months use, the switch that toggles between spray modes became quite stiff so I bought a new head.

One way of avoiding cleaning the microjets often is to use common steel wool (flat square type), curled up and rammed into the shower handle that acts as a filter.

Once a year replace the wool and backwash the shower head.

I have an instant hot water unit and the back pressure helps even out the heated water flow.

Full cold water pressure flow is just under 4 litres minute compared to 9 litres for a standard shower rose. A great water saver.

 I hope that you don't use your own toothbrush.

If it is build up from hard water stick it in vinegar overnight.
