FAQ & Quick guides

The Felton Oxijet™ is a water saving shower attachment that changes the characteristics of your shower when compared to traditional flow restrictors. While saving water, it gives a luxurious showering experience.

The Oxijet™ utilise the venturi effect, jetting the water through 4 micro nozzles. This increases the water speed dragging air through the coloured baffles. This air volumizes the water stream, forming small bubbles that burst when they touch your skin.

If you have a shower handpiece, use the Oxijet™ with yellow baffles. 

If you have a fixed rose with a female thread, use the Oxijet™ with pink baffles. 

If you have a fixed rose with a male thread, use the Oxijet™ with blue baffles.  

If you have mains pressure (over 300 kPa/3 Bar), and a non-restrictive handpiece/fixed rose, the Oxijet™ should work for you.

The Oxijet™ will NOT work if you have any of the following:

  • Low flow electric shower
  • Low or unequal water pressures
  • A restrictive handpiece/fixed rose.

It is made from DR Brass, which is machined, and then chrome plated. The baffles are made from silicon rubber.

A restrictive handpiece/fixed rose is one that has a flow restrictor or flow saving device fitted to it that can't be removed.

Some handpieces and fixed roses have flow restrictors which can be removed. These will work with the Oxijet™, but the restrictors must be removed first.

If your Oxijet™ is installed so that waterflow follows the direction of the arrow and yet water is leaking out the baffles there are two potential causes:

  • Your handpiece or fixed rose may contain a flow restrictor. If it is removable please take it out. If it is not, you may have a restrictive handpiece/rose and the Oxijet™ will not work for you.
  • The water may appear to be coming from the baffles, the actual leak may be caused by the Oxijet™ not sealing on the hose/stem's rubber washer. We've made the threads on the Oxijet™ longer than most fittings. They will work but it may not fit every shower in the market. Please check that the washer is installed correctly in the hose/stem, and that the Oxijet™ is tightened firmly.

Note: even though water may be coming out of the inlet baffles, the Oxijet™ will still be working. Compare the difference in spray appearance with it fitted to without is fitted.

This is normal, and is part of the self-draining function of the Oxijet™. A common observation is that when showers are turned off, water left in the rose/handpiece may drip for some minutes before draining. A handpiece/rose fitted with an Oxijet™ will drain almost immediately.

This is normal. Small droplets of water may escape due to the turbulence created by the jets within the Oxijet™.

This is normal. While the baffles reduce the noise of the air entering the stream, the noise of air exiting your handpiece or rose is not preventable, and is simply a sign that the Oxijet™ is performing well.

If the flow through the Oxijet™ is too low to provide an adequate shower, there are three potential causes:

  • You may not have mains pressure, and your pressures are most likely below 300kPa, and therefore the Oxijet™ is not suitable.
     
  • You may have a flow restrictor somewhere in the system. For a fixed rose, please check within the stem. For a handpiece, at both ends of the hose (including the wall elbow).
     
  • If neither of the previous situations apply to you, it is most likely that you have a restrictive handpiece, and therefore the Oxijet™ is not suitable for use.

The flow resistance through the Oxijet™ will create extra pressure within your shower hose. We recommend only EN1113 rated shower hoses are suitable for use with Oxijet™. There are some shower hoses supplied into the Australian market that do not meet this quality standard, and these may leak under increased pressure. Replace with a standard approved hose.
