What is Oxijet™

The Felton Oxijet™ volumises the stream with air giving you a more luxurious shower.
Traditional flow restrictors work by simply reducing flow and pressure, whereas the Oxijet™ uses flow energy to draw air into the water stream. The Oxijet™ works by jetting the water through 4 tiny nozzles, and sucking air into the stem of the shower rose. The air volumises and pressurises the water, creating tiny air bubbles within the water stream that burst when they touch your skin. In many mains pressure situations the Oxijet™ will pay for itself in water and energy savings, and help you do your part to preserve our beautiful planet.

NB: The Oxijet™ is suitable for equal high (mains) pressure only and not intended for multi-function handpieces/showerheads where there is built-in restriction that cannot be removed. Oxijet™ was designed and manufactured by Felton, and incorporates features based on previously reported CSIRO know how.

Instructions:

Oxijet Shower Handpiece Installation Instructions
  1. Unscrew handpiece from the hose.
  2. Ensure there is no lime and calcium build up in the handpiece. Any restrictor after the Oxijet™ will reduce its effectiveness. Restrictors may include lime scale, or simply restriction in the handpiece or shower head itself. * To remove lime and calcium build up: Soak handpiece in a water and white vinegar solution.
  3. Remove any flow restrictors between hose and handpiece, or hose and wall elbow.
  4. Ensure there is no flow restrictor built into the handpiece.
    NB: If this can't be removed, your Oxijet™ may not aerate to its full potential.
  5. Screw the yellow Oxijet™ into the handpiece. The water flow should flow in the same direction as the arrow on the Oxijet™. Ensure any washer supplied is in place before securing the Oxijet™.
  6. With the hose washer left inside the hose, screw the Oxijet™ and handpiece into the hose.

How To Calculate Your Flow

Using a container/bucket of known volume

You will need:

  • A bucket or large measuring jug of a known volume (preferably above 5 Litres)
  • A stopwatch

Steps:

  1. Run the shower at full flow at showering temperature. (Start without the Oxijet™ attached)
  2. While water is running put the handpiece/fixed rose over the bucket and start timer.
  3. Run water into bucket until the water level meets the known volume and stop timer.
  4. Record the known volume and time taken to fill it.
    Attach the Oxijet™ and repeat Steps 1-4.

Add the water volumes and corresponding recorded times into the correct fields in the calculator to view your water savings.

Using bathroom scale

You will need:

  • A bucket or large container (preferably above 5 Litres)
  • Scales (Bathroom scales are ideal)
  • A stopwatch

Steps:

  1. Measure the mass of the of the bucket by weighing yourself while holding the bucket. Record this weight.
  2. Run the shower at full flow at showering temperature.(Start without the Oxijet™ attached)
  3. While water is running put the handpiece/fixed rose over the bucket and start timer.
  4. Run water into bucket for any amount of time over 15 seconds.
  5. Record this weight of yourself holding the bucket containing water and subtract the weight in Step 1. One kilogram of water is one litre. So the weight difference in kilograms is the water volume in litres. Attach the Oxijet™ and repeat Steps 2-5.

Add the water volumes and corresponding recorded times into the correct fields in the calculatorto view your water savings.

Flow Rate Calculator

Water savings will vary, depending on your specific water pressures and the restrictions in your piping and shower. The aim of the calculator is to compare your flow rates used before and after fitting the Oxijet™ during a typical shower in order to calculate how much water you save.
