Review/Giveaway of the Ecocamel shower head
Being conservative with our water usage is key to our RV lifestyle. We don’t ever go to RV parks, preferring to boondock in the middle of nowhere, or stay in forest service campgrounds. We have it down to a science how long we can stay out, and how much water we go through. Showering takes more water than anything else, and obviously we aren’t giving that up. So finding a shower head that is low flow, and still has good pressure is key. The shower heads that come with RV’s are horrible. No pressure, and they use quite a bit of water. We switched out of the stock shower head a long time ago.
Recently I saw an ad for the Ecocamel shower head that made some pretty fabulous claims. Good pressure, low water use, it all sounded good to me. Ecocamel was kind enough to send me a couple of shower heads to review, and give my opinion on.
The design and appearance of the Ecocamel is very appealing, but how do they perform in the great shower test? I started out by testing water usage. I did this with the very unscientific method of a timer, and a measuring cup. I first measured water usage with our current shower head, the oxygenics. I then measured both of the share heads that Ecocamel sent me, the Jetstorm, and the Orbit. They were all equal in the amount of water they used. Then we showered with each of the shower heads for several days, so we could get a good opinion. The shower head creates pressure with air core technology. Basically what happens is air is sucked in through the holes on the handle and forced out with the water stream. This creates water pressure to rinse shampoo out of your hair, with out using all your water.
And they work great. We both liked the larger size of the shower head itself, and the pressure was very nice. These shower heads will work in your home too, they are not made specifically for RV’s. If you are concerned about your water usage, especially in the shower, these are fantastic. The Ecocamel would be perfect for the areas of the country that are experiencing drought.
Ecocamel sent me enough shower heads to test, and I have an extra to give away. The giveaway is for one Orbit shower head, and is open to US residents only, since I am the one shipping the prize to the winner.
