Water-saving shower heads?

I've read the forum threads concerning replacement shower heads. I didn't see a comment if any of those mentioned have a water saving feature. I'm trying to extend the time between dumps of my gray water tank. Does anyone have any info on water-saving shower heads that would work in my trailer? Thanks.

I put on one of the Oxygenetics too, sort of fits the stock hanger. I just wanted one that have a good shutoff on the head, which the RV one does.

They are excellent . At home had to get a better shut off because of the daily use . Found a brass chrome one on Amazon . Pat

Going the other way, I carry a standard, non water saving showered in my shaving bag, and have been known to temporarily replace a water saver in a campground shower if the water saver has so fine a spray that the water is cold by the time it hits you...

I did put a Oxygenetics shower head in my 17, but it was heavy enough that I had to keep it in the sink after it fell off the wall mount a few times. Other than that, it was great!

Handed the Oxygenetics shower head to Escape and they installed it before we left the factory. This is the one to get..But when traveling, I put it in the sink as it bounces out of the holder. Loren
