The Water Filter for your Shower
We brought this filter in primarily for our gardens, but we highly recommend them for your shower too!

An ingenious patented mixture of zinc and copper, called KDF-55, and crystal quartz converts chlorine into zinc chloride. Zinc is considered to be helpful in alleviating dandruff and is used in anti-dandruff shampoos. Not only are chlorine, odors and dirt particles filtered out, the Premium Shower Filter also inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungus, algae and mildew. This filter will remove about 99% of chlorine from about 5,800 gallons - which is about a year of showers for a family of four, at which time the efficacy will decrease over time but it does not stop working.
The Premium Garden and Shower Filter housing is warranted for one year from date of purchase for defects or cracks. The filter cartridge is warranted for one year from any manufacturing malfunction. The useful life of the filter cartridge varies depending on water conditions and usage and therefore cannot be under warranty for usage.
