    Berkey Shower Filter

     

    The Berkey shower filter is easy to install and is great for those who want the benefits of showering in filtered water. Simply screw this in between the shower pipe coming from your wall and your exising shower head, and you're good to go! We also sell this shower filter with a massage head.

    In the shower environment, chlorine can either be in liquid or gas state. At higher water temperatures in the enclosed shower stall, free-chlorine moves from the liquid to the gas state, where it vaporizes and subsequently is inhaled. The United States regulates all showerhead flow at 2.5 gallons per minute. Thus, the science behind shower filtration must take into account the unique situation in the shower, including temperature, flow rate and volume.

    Documented scientific studies conclude that taking long hot showers is a potential health risk. In the enclosed shower stall, chlorine vaporizes where it is inhaled. To a lesser degree, dermal absorption also occurs. Medical studies suggest a link between absorption and inhalation of chlorine in the shower environment with elevated risks for diseases and serious illness. Showering in chlorinated water may also cause pre-existing conditions such as asthma and eczema, to become exacerbated.

    More About The Berkey Shower Filter

    Using a patented blend of high purity calcium, copper, and zinc, our Shower Filter works on a similar principle to a Catalytic Converter in an automobile. In shower filtration free-chlorine is converted into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this chemical reaction is known as "Reduction-Oxidation", commonly referred to as Redox. Redox reactions can be chemically complex. Simply stated, during a Redox reaction electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new elements. For instance, when free-chlorine comes in contact with the filtration media, it is changed into a benign, water-soluble chloride. This reaction changes free-chlorine to a larger chloride element, too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the skin. It is then carried harmlessly through the water supply.

    In addition to the benefits of filtering water, there are cosmetic benefits. Symptoms of chlorine exposure are dry and/or flaking skin, dry brittle hair and red irritated eyes. Filtering your shower water reduces these symptoms!

    The media used in the berkey shower filter are high-purity copper-zinc formulations used in treatment applications to reduce heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide, microorganisms, and scale. Water filtered through redox media controls microorganism growth. High-purity copper-zinc redox media consistently remove 99% of free chlorine by electrochemically reducing dissolved chlorine gas to water-soluble chloride ions.

    2. awesome Review by Diana Warner
      Rating

      I've used them for years and I know when I need one because I become sleepy, or somehow in a fog when I get out of the shower. WITH the filter I don't have to use lotion, skin not dried out, and I feel invigorated and energized after the shower or bath. I use the shower head to fill the tub for our 10 year old as well.

      I bought 2 for my house and what a difference. Like the other reviewer, that chlorine smell almost turns my stomach sometimes. It has no effect on my husband, so I must be more sensitive. This shower filter eliminates that smell and I notice and my skin is not drying out anymore either. (Posted on 2/27/13)

    Questions on Berkey Shower Head Filter

    • From Elise at 11/25/13 11:54 AM
      • I have no doubt that this product is effective but I was curious to know if once installed would compromise the water pressure at all. We have really strong water pressure and would like to try to find a filter that would not reduce our pressure.

        Thanks
      • Hi Elise -

        No, this should not reduce your current water pressure.

        Thanks

      • I live in Denver, CO and need at good shower filter for hard water and of course, other chemicals that are in our water. Our water leaves a build-up in my hair, so it never seems completely clean.
        Would this help?

        Thanks,
        Sarah
      • Hi Sarah -

        It will be good for removing the chlorine from your water, but would not necessarily address the minerals in the water. So, it would depend on what you feel is impacting your hair; the chlorine or the minerals.

        Thanks

      • Does the shower filter eliminate or reduce flouride too?
      • HI Liz -

        No, the shower filter does not reduce or eliminate fluoride from the water.

        Thanks

      • Do you sell the replacement filters?
      • Hi Angie -

        The whole unit itself must be replaced. There are not cartridges inside that would be swapped out.

        Thanks
