Does this filter help reduce the amount of iron and other metals found in hard/well water?

Asked by: Michelle335

Shower Filter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I noticed a difference in my skin after the first use. It was amazing. I have now used it less than a month and the dryness is gone and my skin is supple again. I have long hair and in 2 weeks time I no longer need to use conditioner just to comb it. I recommend it highly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good filter If you have skin and scalp problems like my family does, this is a good low cost way to help. It has all but cured my dandruff and my wife's ecsema has almost went away too. Easy to install and change filters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bye bye itchy skin I've been using a variation of this filter for the last 7 years. I finally had to replace my old one and I really like the chrome look. I love the fact that my skin is not all itchy after I shower. West Texas water is pretty hard and this way I get the benefit of "soft water" at a nice price. I have my brother replace the filter every 4-5 months or so and it's great. I can tell a noticeable difference in how my skin feels when I don't have the filter attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality & easy to install I' am very happy with it. I got it after I read a magazine that recommend getting a shower water filter for the benefit of hair and skin.-- and I can tell that since I got it my hair definitely feels and looks softer and silkier. Also there are other health benefits since chorine is bad for you specially when you take hot showers. Now I am looking for some kind of filter for my bathroom sink faucets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a difference! My hairstylist recommended a water filter for my shower because the hard water in my home was ruining my hair. Making this one little change has made a big difference in the softness and manageability of my hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For $19 you can't go far wrong This is an inexpensive attractive chrome look filter . Just install between shower head and water pipe as shown in picture . It works , makes the water softer , does clean the chlorine . Does it remove sulfur , calcium , what ever is in your water you want removed ?? Well for the low price of $19 you can try it and find out how it works for you . If you don't like it , remove and throw away . There is no great investment in money and very little in labor to install and remove later . I have used mine for six + months . To date and my wife and daughter who have long hair appreciate the difference it makes . I really love how much cleaner I feel . My water comes from a Baton rouge water company so my biggest problem is probably chlorine which this filter does take care off . My water feels softer to me and my soap lathers up now . A cheap and easy fix . Try it and see if it takes care of your problems , then give us a review . Very easy to install be sure and use Teflon tape to seal pipe threads . The life of the filter will be affected by how much it has to remove from YOUR water . More gunk less life . There is a $45 high flow filter offered by this same company you can find it on Amazon and Home Depot . The $45 dollar one suppose to last a year , again life of filter is determined by how much is in the water to filter . A beginner can install this .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does a good job until it starts leaking This is the third or fourth time we've purchased this product. It works great, but starts leaking after 1 to 1 1/2 years. It's easy to install and easy to change the filter, and the filter seems to do a good job of removing chemicals from the water. We would happily pay a couple dollars more for a model that lasts, but unfortunately we haven't found any competitive products yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a world of difference The water in my house if left unfiltered tastes like iron and will dry your skin and hair out. You can see the corrosion on the outside of the pipes and the iron stains in the toilets. You may as well forget about conditioning your hair because it will not soak in. Frustrated, I went down to the local Lowe's after remembering seeing in line filters available for showers. When I arrived, I bought the last one on the shelf and after installing it, I know why they are sold out. I could instantaneously feel the difference in the water just running it over my hand. It felt soft and clean, and relaxing. I hopped in the shower and after running the filtered water through my hair, I only had to use about half of the amount of conditioner I used before and it soaked right in. My skin now feels soft and moisturized, I feel relaxed all over and now the leave-in conditioner i'm using is soaking in and I only had to use 1/10th of what I used before. Well worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We can enjoy the shower again! Our city has chlorine levels so high that it dries out our skin. The filter has neutralized the chlorine making the odor disappear and our skin to moisturize and feel better. It's very easy to install, no adapters or special tools required. A pair of pliers or crescent wrench will do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy So I just moved and the water is well water. It's discolored and smells horrible. The smell really got me. I'm a shower fanatic, I always take 2 a day, 1 in the am, 1 in the pm. I've been really upset about it, I was showering at a friends, it sucked. Just purchased this today and it WORKED!!! CLEAR WATER WITH NO ODOR!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical shower filter We have used these filters for years. The plastic housing can develop cracks and is sometimes difficult to open during a filter change, but you learn to overcome. I wouldn't be without a filter on the shower. The difference in the feel of the skin, how well it rinses, and generally reducing the amount of chemicals we are exposed to is the goal. If you don't believe, just taste the difference in the water from the filter and water straight from the sink. The next best step is a whole house filter. These will last past the 1 year warranty by 2-3 years. The best thing about this design is it doesn't extend the shower head more than about an inch. Comes with just enough Teflon tape for both ends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I don't know if I should even bother writing this. After all can you really expect a high performance from a filter that costs $18? But I thought I'd warn those who might be thinking of purchasing it. Consider this: this morning, two days after installing the filter, I measured TDS in the water straight from the faucet, it showed 490 ppm (Hello, Las Vegas!) . From the filter - 580 ppm. ??????? I did the test twice, same result. I don't smell the chlorine, but the water feels awful on my skin, not to mention it left calcium stains on a brand new shower curtain. All in all, I don't think this filter is suitable for Las Vegas-like water at all. I thought I'd save money, buying a cheep filter, but I just lost $18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 Before I got this, the hard water made me break out in acne all over my body and face, left sores on my scalp, left my hair dull and brittle, even made it fall out.. But this like fixed all my problems. I don't deal with any of that anymore. Incredible. Highly recomend⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I should probably mention Ive been using this product for years and you have to get a new filter every couple months. But it's totally worth it. I can't go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I wish I invented. I work for a skincare company, I have access to a lot of great products but I swear if you have skin like me it doesn't matter what you use if one thing is really out of place it can really jack you up. Apparently I have a slight case of eczema, since installing this unit I do notice a difference, you'd question a 20 $ product, but a friend told me about it. Make sure you get yourself some Teflon tape and put it on the threads so you don't have a leak with out that or anything you attach that's threaded would leak for that matter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT REUSABLE CAN'T REPLACE FILTER Purchased this filter for my daughter at college as the water there was very hard and her skin was getting irritated. The filter seemed to be working ok till we needed to change the filter. It was supose to be a simple proceedure of unscrewing and simply replacing the filter with a new one. What I experienced was a unit that could not be taken apart to get at the filter. I double checked everything, went on the internet and confirmed what I was doing was correct, still couldn't get it apart. I even clamped it in a vice and used an automotive oil filter wrench and it would not budge. This is mainly a plastic part so you can only do so much before it breaks and is usless. I didn't break the part, but I did give up trying to get the filter out. I decided the best course of action was to take back the replacement filter cartridge for a refund and find a different filter manufacturer. If somene is insistent on purchasing this filter I would reccommed that they make sure that the filter can be replaced by separating the housing before installing. I would also probably lubricate the threads while I had it apart as I have a suspicion that over time the minerals that the filter traps may also get into the housing and adhere to the treads causing them to become inseparable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only lasts 3 weeks - on my 2nd in 2 months So I could no longer handle the chlorine in the local water so I picked up a Sprite filter for shower head because it was the only one sold in the stores amd showers were giving me red rashes. After 3 weeks I felt the water hardness come back and went to change the filter- THE CARTRIDGE WOULD NOT UNSCREW! I had to buy another new filter (twice as much than refill) and here I am again with itchy skin after only 3 weeks. For a filter that claims a year life, 3 weeks is a waste of money. I guess this company has gone down hill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my Hair I was to the point that I thought I was going to have to shave my head. I have below the shoulder length hair that was so dry that it felt like sand paper instead of hair. I had my doctor change my medication, I bought hundreds of dollars worth of products for dry hair. I was at my wits ends. I truly thought I was going to have to cut my hair completely off and start over. My daughter who is a stylist, was telling me everything she could think of to try. Then one day she called me and said Mom, I just had a client and her hair felt exactly like yours and she was so upset. She is not on medication, so I knew that wasn't it and she told my daughter the only change in her life was that she recently moved to a house with well water. BINGO - the common denominator! So we decided that I needed to go to Lowes that day and buy a shower filter and see if that would help my hair. So I did a little research online - read the reviews and everyone was raving about this water filter and how it changed their hair in practically no time. The filter was less than $20, so I thought - what do I have to lose? THE REVIEWS WERE RIGHT. I have washed my hair twice and it is 95% better - I couldn't ask for better than that. I'm amazed, and thankful. This is an amazing product. Please try it! AND I even installed it myself - to my husbands surprise. I love it. Thank you for saving my hair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From all appearances so far, looks very good Without chemically analyzing the water it's impossible to say it's a water filter is doing a great job. But this filter does not have any of the downsides I was concerned about, and it seems to be delivering pure, odor free, and chemical-free shower water which is its purpose. I was afraid the filter would reduce our already marginal water pressure, but it has not. Water pressure is great. We have had problems with a chlorine smell and a salty feel from our water softening and chlorine injection sulfur removal system. This filter has pleased my wife in that she has sensed none of those problems since installing it. We have an American Standard shower head and hose device and installing the filter before the head/hose device was the ticket. The manufacturer took great pains to minimize the amount of pipe-length extension so the head is only slightly extended. I'll have to take everything back apart in 6 months to change filters, but aside from that, it's a good installation. (If I had only a shower head, filter replacement would involve only unscrewing the filter body which would be very simple and quick.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's just okay I've been using these for a five or six years and I have to replace them every year, give or take. They are cheaply made and often leak right out of the gate forcing me to teflon their threads when it should just be a gasket that is supplied. In addition, they will eventually split big time. And maybe when you are taking a shower. It won't harm you but you won't be getting non chlorinated water at that point. These things constantly break. I wish they were made of a good stainless instead of cheap plastic. The "wear and tear" causes the plastic to split in various places and at that point water will spray, hopefully the split isn't pointing outside of your shower. For what they do, when they do it, they work fine. But expect to replace the actual unit every year or so. Right now I am researching a different system that I won't have to replace. I'd rather only have to replace the media every 3-6 months instead of the whole unit. They are cheap and you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product! After coming to States I noticed a significant amount of hair loss, and I knew it was due to change in water. I was so desperate to control my hair fall, after talking to frnds I came across this product. After installing it I and my husband felt a huge difference in my hair fall. It was gone. I am so happy to use this. The filter should be replaced every 6 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly This filter works just as promised. For a good six months it filters out the chlorine, which is my main concern and it's harsh drying effects on our skin. It has a little dial on it too that you can turn to set the month you will need to change it on (if you install it in June you'd turn the dial to December). It is super easy to install as well, you just unscrew your current shower head and twist the filter on, then screw the shower head onto the filter. This filter also does not make the water come out slow, it comes out just as it normally would. I have been using this for filter for a while now and love that its inexpensive to buy a replacement filter and that it keeps the gross stuff in the water off of our skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I have well water. The first week without this filter, it was unbearable taking a shower. I researched and saw this one. I've had it close to 6 months now and it still works great. I'm about to go get another one since it's at the 6 months mark. Considering attaching it to my hose to fill my pool since it's around 6,000 gallons and it says it filters approximately 15,000 gallons. Crossing my fingers! Oh and the odor I had the first week before filter is gone! I was so relieved so it really helps with that as well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid filter with an elegant appearance I wanted to add filters to all of the showers in my house but did not like big bulky canister style. I stumbled upon these, bought one to test, and was very impressed. I ended up purchasing these for the rest of the showers. Very solid feel and elegant appearance. It actually looks like it is part of the shower gear for the rainfall in my master bath. Very easy to install, no leaks, and there’s a dial you can set as a reminder for when it’s time to change the filter out. Filters are very fairly priced as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $20 I've spent in a long time! This is the single best hair product money can buy! I hate the water here, even with a water softener I found my hair was limp, dull, oily, crunchy ends and a very sensitive scalp, even with salon brand products. Thought I'd try this, even though I didn't have much hope, but I have found my hair is softer, a smidge bouncier, shiny and I don't have to wash my hair as often. I used to have to wash my hair every other day then slick it up in a pony tail or bun on the 3rd day bc washing too frequently dried my scalp too much. Now if I wear a shower cap I can leave it an extra day or two before I need to tie it up, if a rinse my hair without shampoo once or twice in between it lasts even longer. I have also noticed my dandruff that's plagued me for 25+ yrs has decreased dramatically. I've been using it for almost a month now and noticed improvements with in the first week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Difference! This is my second purchase of this product and I have to say that some units might be factory defective, or not functioning properly due to an error in installation. The first one I bought and used for almost a year always leaked out of the filter area (thin stream). It wasn't a big deal to me other than it having lowered the water pressure a bit and sometimes water getting on the bathroom floor if the curtain wasn't sealed all the way to the tub/shower. But I just bought a second one instead of getting a replacement filter just to see if a different one would maybe not leak. Lo and behold, this one is perfect! Absolutely zero leaking (and I have a shower/tub combo), water pressure nice and strong like it naturally is without a filter, and the great filtering capabilities that allow your skin and hair to stay soft by removing the pollution that causes that hard water feel. I recommend using the Teflon tape that they provide inside the packaging. I just wrapped the tape around the pipe that comes out of the wall...around 1/2" of the open, exterior part of the pipe, making sure it's nice and snug/tight. Then twist the filter on right over the taped part (by the way, it won't ever get tight, so feel free to stop twisting after awhile), and then the showerhead on to that, and done son! For $20, this product does more than enough. If you want completely soft water, well, that's hundreds/thousands of dollars to install a soft water treatment unit. ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy!!! Since moving into this house, my hair had felt like straw, and my face was dry and flaky no matter how much moisturizer I used. Within just a few days of installing the filter, I am back to normal! My fiance noticed he isn't itchy after showering anymore. We will probably have to replace the filter more than every 6 months here, but I don't care, totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate change for the better I installed one in my kids shower and saw an immediate change in the way her hair looked/felt after washing. It turns out our water was giving her really bad dandruff, but with this filter the dandruff is gone. I bought a second filter for our other shower and I can feel the change on my skin after just one washing. I've had these now for about two months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I used it sooner We are new to San Diego and didn't realize how the Hard water her would affect skin, scalp and hair. My daughter developed severe acne and had flaky scalp, My hair was so dry and my dad has dry skin patches all over his back. I bought 3 of these and put them in each bathroom. My daughters skin improved within the first week, scalp is getting better. My hair is so much softer. And still waiting to see if the change helps my dad's dry skin. Very easy to change out within 10 minutes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
