I had tape from previous filter so that was good. Good timing it came the same day my new shower faucet came. Good condition. I did have a problem figuring which way the filter went in. I took the old one out without looking how it was in. The directions I had a hard time understanding which way to put it.
We have well water which makes it fun trying to find a good filter. I have been using the AquaBrite filter for about a year and it was meh... ok. Still felt like my hair was “heavy” and not free from build up. Saw the reviews for this filter and decided to give it a go. Omg. It is AMAZING. It puts out more water. Feels amazing. And my skin and hair feel fabulous. Even my husband (who didn’t notice when I started using the previous filter and frankly doesn’t really care about well water hair) said it was pretty amazing. Will recommend to friends who have well water/ hard water hair.
My wife was looking for something that would filter the water and I was looking for something that didn't restrict the water so much that is drops straight down once it come out. This comes out hard and plenty of water. There is a water restricter included, but I haven't tried it because I love the amount of water coming out. I also wanted a rain sower head. This is a compromise for me. The pattern is somewhat large but not as large as the previous rain shower head we had before. All in all we are both happy with what we got. I would definitely recommend it to others.
I purchased the housing and 2 filters in 2018 to add to my shower so the shower head doesn't get clogged with mineral build up and it helps not only the showerhead but me also! I have eczema and in the winter, it flares up so that even water burns my skin. My skin, especially on my hands, tend to split and bleed and my scalp burns. Even though I have medicine and use Eucerin, showers can hurt in the winter. With this filter, my skin doesn't burn and it definitely keeps the water softer. It also keeps my hair soft and I don't need much shampoo or conditioner. I have hard water and change these filters every 6 months to ensure these work right.
Living in Los Angeles takes some adjustment but one thing that I couldn't fix was the water quality. Where I live, the water is harsh and leaves a pink-orangish residue. Maybe it's the pipes. Whatever the case, once we installed the shower head filter, it was a game changer. My skin doesn't feel as icky and itchy anymore. It's not like soft water either where it takes forever to rinse the soap off. You may not notice a huge difference at first but if you don't replace the filter after using it for a full cycle, your body will know something is up. My skin got irritated again and only after replacing it did I realize Aquahome makes a big difference.
We believe these are the best filters we have ever used.
I absolutely love these filters and the showerhead. The water coming out feels soft and silky like no other shower I’ve ever felt before. Highly recommend.
So amazing! I don't need to lotion immediately after my shower. My hair and skin is soft and manageable. I use this in conjunction with the shower filter.
Love this product very much! Skin feels great, feel protected from city water, chlorine etc.
Serious, night and day difference when this shower filter is there. I would 100% recommend it for anyone who wants a better shower. Your skin feels smooth, your hair is softer, and you also get peace of mind knowing you aren't bathing in chlorine.
