A shower head is probably one of those products you never thought about much, until it came time to move to a new home, re-do the bathroom or you visited a luxurious hotel where every detail is carefully selected. At that point, you probably realized that there is much more to shower heads than just a standard design. There are many different types of shower heads and the choice of the right type is actually very important. It completely determines the quality of your shower! The wrong shower head will give you an unsatisfying shower, meaning that you will start every day annoyed, partially soapy, partially grimy and generally in a very bad mood. On the other hand, the right shower head will help you start your day feeling refreshed, awake, aware and generally energetic and optimistic.
Nowadays, shower heads come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Even more important are the different features they offer. Regarding shower head, different features usually means a variety of spray pattern(s) and a variety of shower head systems. Spray patterns can be more condensed or more dispersed, giving a different showering experience. Some shower heads offer multiple spray patterns, while others offer only one. Regarding shower head system differences, this relates to whether the shower head system includes only a hand held shower head, only a mounted shower hear, or both.
Here we present three Oxygenics shower head reviews, where each shower head looks different and has different features compared to the other two. They all look different compared to regular shower heads, which is one of the reasons why we decided to review these three in particular. Another reason was that all three are quite affordable, thus these reviews will be useful for a large number of you, our readers.
Oxygenics 27267 SkinCare 1-Spray Showerhead with Comfort Control
The first one of the Oxygenics shower head reviews is about the Oxygenics 27267 SkinCare 1-Spray Showerhead with Comfort Control.
Here are some of the main details about this shower head that you would need to know.
Firstly, the price of this shower head is about $35. Some online retailers offered it for less though, on discount, at the time when we were testing it out.
Secondly, the flow rate of this shower head is 2 gallons per minute, which means that it sprays out 2 gallons each minute.
Thus, this should give you an idea of how ‘strong’ the water flow will be when you use this shower head. In layman’s terms, the flow rate is the main determinant of how quickly you can get the shampoo out of your hair. Thus, it is important in terms of how much time you will need to spend on a proper shower each morning. Normally, water pressure would be an equally important determinant of that as well, but not for this shower head thanks to its innovative pressurizing technology. This technology works to increase water pressure buy adding air to the water stream rather than more water. Thus, it has environmentally friendly and refreshing effects.
Thirdly, in terms of materials, most of the shower head is chrome plated, with the exception of the comfort control switch which is used for adjusting pressure – it is made of plastic. This is rather unfortunate, since it does take down a notch the aesthetic appeal of this shower head as a whole. On the plus side though, this shower head comes with a limited lifetime warranty that ensures you will get compensated if it clogs or malfunctions.
Those are the most important things you should know about the Oxygenics 27267 SkinCare 1-Spray Showerhead with Comfort Control. Here are some other interesting facts and figures you might want to know. The dimensions of this shower head are 5.3 x 1.9 x 1.9 inches and it weighs 2.9 pounds. It is resistant to corrosion and mineral buildup as well. All of the above is available for less than $40 – for a product that you will probably use for years and share with a significant other too. We’d call that a really good deal.
Oxygenics 89546 PowerSelect 7-Spray Fixed Showerhead
The second one of these Oxygenics shower head reviews is about the Oxygenics 89546 PowerSelect 7-Spray Fixed Showerhead.
For this review, we will follow the same pattern of main description followed by interesting facts and figures as for the previous review above.
In terms of the listing price, this Oxygenics shower head costs precisely as much as the previous one.
However, we were not able to find this one for a discounted price, which might be because it wasn’t on discount at the time or because it is never available for less than about $35.
The flow rate of the Oxygenics 89546 PowerSelect 7-Spray Fixed Showerhead is 1.75 gallons per minute, which means slightly less than the other Oxygenics shower head. This can be viewed as an advantage if you are interested in conserving water and energy (energy is conserved indirectly by reducing the amount of water that needs to be heated up for a shower). If a high water pressure shower is more important to you, then you might want to look into shower heads with a higher flow rate. It is worth mentioning, though, that this shower head also comes with the patented Oxygenics pressure technology, which might compensate for the lower flow rate compared to a regular shower head with a higher flow rate.
In terms of materials, this shower head has a brushed nickel finish which is resistant to corrosion. There are no plastic parts without a brushed nickel finish, so this shower head looks slightly sleeker than the other one. One considerable difference between these two shower heads is that this one has a variety of spray settings to choose from, within the range of wide rain to focused massage, whereas the Oxygenics 27267 SkinCare 1-Spray Showerhead with Comfort Control offered only pressure control. The more focused spray settings could also give the effect of a higher pressure shower, albeit more concentrated, even though the flow rate is only 1.75 gallons per minute.
In terms of size and weight, the Oxygenics 89546 PowerSelect 7-Spray Fixed Showerhead is significantly bigger and heavier than the other one, with dimensions of 4.1 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches and weight of 14.4 ounces. Another thing to mention about this Oxygenics shower head is that it also comes with a limited lifetime warranty safeguarding against clogging and malfunctions. Again, for the price of more or less $35, we’d say this is also a great bargain!
Oxygenics Curve 3-Setting Brushed Nickel Rain Shower System
For the last one of these Oxygenics shower head reviews, we present a modern-looking shower head that, in our opinion, merges the best features of our other two choices into one – the Oxygenics Curve 3-Setting Brushed Nickel Rain Shower System.
Of course, this merging of the benefits is reflected in a higher price compared to the other too. Its flow rate is 2 gallons per minute, which means that you can expect a satisfying shower while still conserving energy and water compared to many other shower heads with higher flow rates.
The same patented Oxygenics technology is present in the design of this shower head as well.
In terms of extra features, this shower head offers three different spray patterns, including a waterfall spray setting which gives a pretty unique shower experience. Switching between the settings is quite easy. It has a square design which is quite unusual for a shower head, giving this one a very modern look. This shower head also has a metal base for more stability when it is mounted as well as easy clean nozzles. The finish is brushed nickel, just as in the case of the Oxygenics 89546 PowerSelect 7-Spray Fixed Showerhead. Its dimensions are 15.5 x 9.1 x 5.3 inches and it weighs 2.8 pounds. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty just like the other two.
To Sum Up
Keeping all of the above in mind, we feel that we have given you sufficient information to make an informed purchase of a great shower head. Thus, we will conclude our Oxygenics shower head reviews by saying that whichever one you choose, you will be bringing a good quality product with a solid price into your home.
