I don't have issues with the original shower head, but rather the hose to it.  Our original shower hose was stiff and got worse with age.  I replaced it with a much more flexible hose but it isn't flexible enough.  On a trip in Europe a few years ago I found a shower head hose as flexible as a rope, bought it, brought it home, but the fittings are different.

Does the shower system you are sharing here have a hose as flexible as a rope?

Nope ! The white plastic hose from the 26781 kit is just like the original.

Itís unbelievable the difference that shower head makes.  Donít think about it - just get it!

I donít know how it can change the water pressure.  It just appears to have more pressure and is successful in getting the soap out of my long hair.

Thanks for the part identification. 

Restless2 in Michigan.  This weather is crazy. Dark when go to work, dark when get home! And cold, did I say cold. But it could be worse.

3-4 months until retirement!

Hm! We got this one -

the hose was very much more supple than the original. I just went out to feel its 'rope' ness, and due to the acrtic blast  (it was 59 this AM!)  and subsequent 61 degrees in the coach*, it was like a brand new nylon rope.  :-D In use with hot water, I do recall it being more like a rubber hose it was so flexible. 

Head fit into the stock holder perfectly also.  2o2

Volkemon,

You always come up with those zingers.  :lol

That reminds me back in the day when my sister was getting married.  She and her husband to be were registering at a store.  As a joke they selected a Darth Vader beach towel along with dishware and such.  Irene and I bought that beach towel for them.  The joke was on them.  roflol

I put the Oxygenics push button valve on the faucet end of the hose instead of on the shower head. In the 2350 that makes it easier to reach in to set the water temperature , and to leave it set for the next user. This also  allows the Oxygenics shower head to fit securely in the original wall holder bracket instead  of having to install the new Oxygenics  bracket.

Thanks to this thread we have replaced our shower head to the Oxygenics brand.  Simple to do, no tools needed.  Thanks especially to this hint I didn't have to replace the wall holder bracket.  I too placed the push button valve at the faucet end and it worked perfectly.  Now for a camping trip to try it out.

Now complete the journey to the Wet side...   this was the other half of getting a good shower in my 2350. AWESOME. I have installed pics on my thread here.
