The PureH2O Shower Filter comes complete with a two-stage filter cartridge that lasts six months or 10,000 gallons of filtered water. The PureH2O Shower Filter is an advanced filtering system that reduces chlorine and other chemicals for a healthier and more enjoyable shower experience. The high-capacity filter is easy to install and makes an attractive addition to any shower. The Shower Filter uses a two-stage filtering process. Stage 1 filtration reduces chlorine from your shower water and balances its pH level with a natural copper/zinc mineral media called KDF-55D. The Stage 2 filtration reduces harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that ordinarily vaporize while you are showering and are unhealthy to inhale. Using a carbonized coconut shell media, the second stage reduces most synthetic chemicals and VOCs. With the realization that chemicals can enter our body through skin absorption and inhalation of steam while showering than from drinking water, the benefits of shower filtration have become obvious. A warm shower opens the pores of the skin and allows a high rate of absorption of chlorine and other chemicals. Inhalation of chlorine and chemical vapors may irritate the lungs and then enter the bloodstream. They can have magnified adverse effects when compared to ingested chemicals, which are partially filtered out by the liver and kidneys. Aside from the health benefits of showering in filtered water, the cosmetic benefits are even more noticeable. Anyone who has ever gone swimming in a chlorinated pool can relate to the harsh drying effect that chlorine has on your skin and hair. A significant reduction of chlorine and other chemicals found in tap water will help your skin and hair retain moisture more effectively for a younger, healthier look and feel.

Do I have to pay for a plumber to install the PureH2O Shower Filter? The PureH2O Shower Filters are very easy to install, and you can do it yourself in minutes. No plumber is necessary. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Product Information at 336-389-6987. What is the flow rate of the PureH2O Shower Filter? The optimum flow rate for the filter and shower head is 2.5 gallons per minute. Can I use my own shower head or hand-held wand with the PureH2O Shower Filter? Yes, but it is not recommended. You can use your own shower head if you do not like the provided PureH2O shower head as long as the shower head connection has the same 1/2 inch connection as standard shower heads. Just note that if your shower head processes more than a 2 1/2 gallon flow rate per minute, the quality of filtration may degrade slightly. Increasing the flow rate by changing the shower head reduces contact time with the media and will reduce the filtration quality as well. If you decrease the flow rate of the system by using a different shower head, or use a shower head with a shut-off switch, you may cause damage to the system. Can I use the shower system for drinking water? Drinking some of the water during your shower isn’t dangerous. However, Market America does not recommend that you use the shower system as a primary drinking water source, since it is not designed as a drinking system and has only been tested and certified under shower conditions and regulations. Can I hook the shower system up under a constant pressure application? No, the shower system is designed to allow the water to consistently pass through the system as it filters. If the system is under constant pressure and unable to release the pressure introduced into the system during filtration, damage can occur to the unit. How do I know if the PureH2O Shower Filter will fit the shower pipe coming out of my wall? Most shower connections are 1/2 inch, which means that the PureH2O Shower Filter will fit the shower pipe in most homes. How do I know how many showers it takes to use 10,000 gallons? 10,000 gallons at 2 1/2 gallons per minute = 4,000 minutes of showering - You can take 400, 10-minute showers - You can take 267, 15-minute showers
