Reviewed by:

If you enjoy filtered tap water, you might consider also removing cholrine and other metals and chemicals from your shower water.

This two-stage shower water filter installs quickly and easily with a minimum of tools (pliers recommended). It removes chlorine, reduces VOC's (volatile organic chemicals), lead and other metals and enhances pH (good for skin and hair).

According to the manufacturer, pressure loss is minimal and showerhead height is unaffected.

The filter is good for about 10,000 gallons (six months, or maybe less if you have teenagers in your household). Replacement cartridge is $38.88.
