Shower Filter, Chlorine Shower Filters
Shower Filters provide a lot of benefits, the most important of which is Chlorine Removal. There are many other advantages of having a filtrating showerhead, such as reduction of soap scum, prevention of dry skin and hair, and odor removal. Many chlorine removing shower filters (sometimes called filtered shower heads) also remove or greatly reduce synthetic chemicals and organic compounds that can be absorbed through skin. There are 2 major types of media primarily used by shower filters: Granular Activated Carbon, and KDF . We did a painstaking research for you, and are offering Top Filtered Shower Heads on the market, with a short exception of several products that we do not carry or have no access to. Many other materials have been tried, and there are several products on the market that claim they have something better, or that they remove multitude of other contaminants such as fluoride. Usually if it sounds too good to be true, it is. How Shower Filters Work. A typical Filtered Showerhead consists of a body (usually very sturdy plastic) that can be opened, and a smaller replacement cartridge that goes inside. Water will flow through and contaminants are trapped inside the replaceable filter. There are models on the market (and we carry several) that are solid and can't be replaced, in this case whole system is typically replaced when it is exhausted.

What is a Cost of Shower Filter? A typical Shower Filtration System (body and a cartridge) costs between $30 and $50. Look for Certified Systems. Luxury units can go for $70 - $100. Systems that are sold at over $100 are typically priced very high, and a further research is recommended to see why. Fluoride Removing Shower Filters We get this question a lot. Do Shower Filters remove fluoride? The answer is NO, they do not. There is no media on the market that can remove fluoride consistently, at a typical fast shower flow rate and wide temperature range, that also fits tiny shower filter body. It can be reduced in variable degree however. If you found a website or a product that claims otherwise , most likely what you are seeing is snake oil salesmen. Run from those sites as there's no guarantee that any other information they provide is also correct. Oftentimes it is a hobby site ran by someone who has very vague understanding of water purification technologies. Shower filter that can remove fluoride exists, but it is 5 foot tall and is called a Whole House Fluoride Removal System. If you found a website that makes an outrageous claim about their shower filter, be aware that there may be other information there that is also incorrect or exaggerated.
