Shower Water Softener – Portable Water Softener – KDF Shower Filter
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!
