I have very hard water and it was destroying my hair. I have had this for less than one month and can tell a huge difference in the texture of my hair. Our shower is floor to ceiling stone and the grout would get a pinkish mold if I did not clean it daily. I have not had to do that since we installed. Install was super easy!
Our water procedures have become more pleasant. Also, we now bathe the baby without fear of redness and irritation. The filter came with two cartridges and it's great. The installation is elementary and takes no more than a few minutes.
At the suggestion of my hair stylist, I took a chance and purchased this shower filter; and, I love it! As a result of years of color treatments, exposure to sun and hard water, my hair was extremely dry. Since using the filter my hair seems healthier and more hydrated. Also, the softness of the water helps to make soap and shampoo lather up nicely. When installing the filter, I wound a little extra Teflon tape around the outside of the top joint to prevent a slight drip. That did the trick and it is not noticeable to the eye at all. I would definitely recommend this product!
My wife has sensitive skin and has been wanting my to install a shower filter for some time now. I finally got this one. I like how it comes with everything I need to install it - including plumbers tape for a tight seal. It was easy to put in and out hard water is not so hard anymore. My wife is happy so I am happy.
I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about all the claims these filter manufacturers made about the difference of showering with one, but after using it for a week or two now, I must say, the difference is remarkable. I even bought a chlorine test kit to test the water and sure enough, the chlorine reading was zero. No more dry itchy skin. Truly amazed. Loved the fact it came with 2 filters which amounts to a year supply at six months each. Definitely worth the investment.
Love these shower heads. Bought one, loved it, bought two more. Difficult to describe the luxurious feel this product provides. Like a thousand feathers tickling your skin.When you receive the box containing the showerhead, you know at a glance it’s something special. If there isn’t an unboxing video on YouTube their should be. I’m not the least handy, but I figured out how to install it pretty easily.. all you need are some pliers in case your old head needs help to unscrew. They even include the white plumbers tape. Buy this. You won’t be disappointed.
This product is amazing. My hair and skin felt soft immediately. The shower head has such wonderful flow. I look forward to my morning shower! On a side note: You may have to rethink your hair product routine. It took a few days to figure out why my hair was looking different. I have actually STOPPED using conditioner unless I don't plan to use my Devacurl hair gel. My hair is already so soft after I shower that the added product makes my curls even softer. I like big hair so I omit the conditioner. Also, people keep asking if I colored my hair. It looks darker. Hello??!!! The hellish L.A. water isn't stripping the eff outta my hair any longer! Yay!!!! This filter/shower head combo is a must have!
So, I was just looking for something to make the water better. My old shower head kept getting clogged and an a residue that was kinda gross. I live in SC. Anyway, my biggest fear though was losing water pressure. But I went ahead and got this system. It wasn't hard to install, if you have Some common sense and can follow instructions. It didn't have any kind of Flow restriction, but it did have instructions on how to add one, if you chose to add one. Though, why would you? Installation was pretty straight forward and once in stalled I let it run for like 10 minutes to clear the filter of any carbon residue, as per the instructions. So, the first thing I noticed is the the way the water flow exiting the shower head seams different. It seams softer and much more pleasant. However, I did notice a tiny amount of pressure loss, but to be honest, it didn't bother me, and I'm pretty sure if I removed the vitamin filter in the head, that problem would be solved, but I like the way it is. Moving on. The shower experience was very nice and my hair and skin did actually feel noticeably better. The head will drip for a while after each use, but it's not a big deal. This package did not come with any Extra filters, but for the price, I guess it's still a bargain. I would recommend this and I'd say it did exactly what I expected it to do. I wish that the head was a bit more flexible, as it seams it's loose or tight. Find your position and lock it down basically. So, yeah. I'm pleased with it!
Never been so happy to find a product! My new apartment complex has no water filtering system whatsoever, and this shower head system is saving my hair! Took off a star because there’s a slight defect that causes the shower head itself to fall off every now and then, but it works great otherwise! Update: the seller sent me a replacement to help with the shower head issue! Great customer service! Best Buy ever
I have fine, porous, highlighted blonde hair. This shower head filter has made a huge difference in two ways: First, my hair is MUCH easier to comb out after it is washed. This has reduced breakage and the snapped-off flyaways. Secondly, my hair now has more density. Even my hairdresser noticed it (without knowing a thing about the shower head). She said, "Wow. Your hair feels great. It has weight!" (A big deal for my hair...)Plus, the water just feels good on my skin. It is gentle and comforting. I hesitate to use the work "silky", because some might interpret that as *greasy*. The worst part of enjoying this shower-head is missing it when I have to take a "regular" shower when I travel. My hair definitely suffers and the shower experience is just not the same.
When I bought this filter, I did not read the instructions, because before that I had had a similar filter. Therefore, seeing colored water in the first two seconds of the first use I feared. Instructions still had to read, and it is written about the coal dust at the first connection.
She is very cool! Fits perfectly into the interior of the bathroom. I chose this particular watering can because of the built-in water filter, for me the main criterion! It is easy to install and thanks to its design saves water consumption.
This shower head is pure awesomeness, easy to install and works great. Absolutely everything you need comes right in the box. It even comes with flow constrictors for the environmentally conscious. For the price, this cant be beat. I highly recommend this to everyone with a shower, you wont be disappointed.
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.
Purchased with the shower head filter and love them both equally.
