Compare Shower FiltersCompare these showerheads below with clean and easy to read comparison table. This table has been approved by experts in the field of water filtration and filtered shower heads.
Each of shower heads below has been known in the industry, and can provide a pretty good quality shower experience. The main contaminant that a typical shower filter will remove is chlorine. Usually this is the main contaminant that contributes to pool smell, eye and skin irritation, dry skin, dandruff, allergies and even asthma.
Please use this comparison table to chose which shower head you believe may match best to your bathroom. Our scoring methodology is outlined below and based on a) chlorine filtration , b) other contaminant removal, c) size of a cartridge, d) replacement interval, e) manufacturer warranty, f) manufacturing country (USA, non-USA).
We have designed this methodology in order to compare shower filters above. First we added all points and normalized scores based on 5 being the highest score. After that, some points were subtracted for failure to meet certain market expectations.
Products that Don't WorkThere are many products on the market that simply do not work as advertized, and are otherwise excluded from this list. If a product claims to remove "everything" , lists more than 1 or 2 contaminants that it removes (as opposed to reduce), if it claims to remove things like fluoride - it is a false claim and nothing more than a hot water marketing. We suggest not to buy from these websites as once they exhagerrated one or two things, it would be really hard to identify which claims are true and which are false. Shower filters cannot remove fluoride.
Second excluded group are products that use media other than KDF and carbon. Two product examples are Vitamin C and Chlorogon (which is calcium sulfate) and various similar forms of sulfates and sulfides. "Vitamin C" other name is ascorbic acid , and we don't recommend taking showers in acid, there's enough acid rain already. Sulfates are also chemicals that are not healthy to use in the shower. There products have been evaluated by numerous authorities, including NSF, decades ago, and they would be in every shower filter had they been found appropriate and performing as claimed. As of today large sites such as Amazon have products that use chlorogon and are cheaply made in China at the top of their Shower Filters category. Be aware that they don't work as described.
