Shower Water Softener – Portable RV Water Softener – KDF Shower Filter

WaterSticks is the inventor of the ShowerStick shower water softener. The ShowerStick contains resin and works via ion exchange as a whole house water softener does to remove hard water minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Soft water can provide relief to people who suffer with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema (also known as dermatitis) or dry itchy skin in general. It’s also beneficial for those who have dry, brittle or straw-like hair. And if you want your hair color to last longer, soft water is a great solution! And it’s portable so if you move you can take it with you! Our RV Stick is a portable RV water softener that’s perfect for everyone from full time RVers to weekend campers. It can be connected to a water source to continuously provide soft water in your whole RV or to fill freshwater tanks if you’re on the go. Our Mini Stick is a portable mini water softener that’s handy for various uses that require smaller amounts of soft water. It’s perfect for bathing dogs or other pets in a utility sink or outside with a hose since they sometimes suffer from dry skin issues too. It can also be used to fill up a humidifier, carpet cleaner or patio misters with soft water in order to avoid as much limescale buildup and water spots.

The ShowerStick is a true water “softener” since it removes hard water minerals such as calcium and magnesium which are known to cause dry skin and hair. This means the water from the ShowerStick will test as soft water when using a hard water test kit. But this isn’t the case with a shower water “filter” since they are not capable of removing any hard water minerals (see for yourself by using a hard water test kit). This is the reason so many people who first try using a shower filter alone don’t end up happy with the results it gives. It’s great that a filter removes chlorine, but to get the best results regarding your skin and hair, you need to soften the water. For a more in-depth explanation regarding why shower filters don’t soften water, please follow the link: Does a shower filter soften water? Have you ever seen the white chalky buildup on a glass shower door that’s hard to remove? That’s hard water! And if it’s building up on the inside of your shower, you can bet it’s doing the same thing on your skin, scalp and hair – yuk! The ShowerStick will remove these nasty minerals and a bonus is that your shower will stay much cleaner too. Although the ShowerStick costs more to purchase initially than a shower filter, it costs a lot less in the long run. Think about how much you spend yearly on shower filters and multiply that number by 10. Ten years is the average lifespan of the ShowerStick so it ends up costing far less and it does so much more.

The KDF shower water filter contains the most effective media there is to remove chlorine in high temperature shower water – patented KDF 55 copper-zinc alloy. KDF media actually becomes more effective in higher temperatures (such as in a hot shower) but this is not the case with other filters such as those containing carbon – theirs becomes less effective!

Our portable RV water softener is called the RV Stick. It’s designed to soften the water supply in RVs and can easily be installed inline with your water supply or to fill your fresh water tank. It can also be used to soften water in boats, carpet cleaning machines, spas or Jacuzzi, patio misters, humidifiers, espresso or cappuccino machines, aquariums, etc. It’s easy to connect with water hose fittings (included) to any water hose (not included). It can be installed and used in any position (other softeners must stand upright) and the water can flow through it in either direction. Unlike other water softeners you cannot lose your resin and contaminate your RV’s water tank or water lines by hooking it up backwards (accidental back flow will not cause any problems). The resin can be regenerated easily with salt water.

The Mini Stick is our smallest water softener so it contains a smaller amount of resin. This means it will need to be regenerated more often than our larger softeners. Using the hard water test kit (included) will help you determine when regeneration will need to be performed. If you’d like a larger version of the Mini Stick so you won’t need to regenerate as often, please see our “Portable RV Water Softener”. The Mini Stick and the RV Stick are the same other than the size and therefore the volume of resin inside. The Portable is 4 times larger than the Mini Stick so because it has 4 times more resin, it will last 4 times longer before needing to be regenerated.
