Has anybody replaced the outside shower head with something like the oxygenics fury? My outside shower pressure is pretty weak, and I use it alot when we stay at a beach to wash sand off feet/legs and keep it out of my holding tanks. It seems like a tight fit and I don't know if anyone has done this. Any suggestions?

I don't know how yours hooks up (I'm in a 182g), but if it's the quick connect, I have my coil line and sprayer it came with you can have. Probably what you already have..

If your just rinsing from the beach, it could work for ya.

I think you would have to mod the box interior in some manner to make room. The thought has crossed my mind, we use ours on the dog mostly..

Suggestion, unscrew the head of the shower. Underneath you will find a water reducer with a small hole in it. You can take a larger drill bit and open the whole up. That will allow more water to pass thru.

I believe a bigger hole would allow more flow, which would reduce the pressure, ergo, causing the weah pressure I already have. When I installed the fury in the indoor shower, I was amazed at how much it improved the water pressure.

Interesting, if you open the reducer it would be like using a 3/4" hose versus a 1/2" hose but not changing the nozzle, or shower head in this case. I'm going to look at that today.

I looked at my outside shower the really small reducer is at the inlet to the hose from the faucet assembly, not in the hose. It's half the size of the hose reducers.

I removed the small reducer, if that is what it is at the output of the faucet assembly. I did get some increase in water pressure. It is considerably smaller than anything in the hose. I'm not sure what it's purpose is and I couldn't find a component breakdown of an outside shower. I put it back together like I found it.
