Shower filter cartridge with active carbon and KDF
Shower filter cartridge utilising activated carbon to remove chlorine and bad odours. Also uses KDF to remove chlorine and heavy metal ions such as Zn2+, Hg2+, Cd2. This filter can be used in the shower, bath or even as a toilet filter.
This filter has two composite rubber seals to ensure a leak-free fit.
Connect to the middle of the shower hose, or at the shower handle or beginning of hose from a shower box on the wall. On baths attach to the underside or hose on wall mounted taps. For sanitation purposes, connect anywhere along the hose to the toilet.
There has been much written in the press last year about the effects of chlorinated water, the effect on human health, "Birth Defects" and the overall effect of chlorine/hot water on human health. The problem being that hot chlorinated water can produce tri-halomethanes (THM's) which can have an adverse effect on the human body.
We have a number of press cuttings which we are prepared to forward upon request.
We have been personally testing this product for the past 6 months & extremely impressed, gone is that terrible smell of chlorine when you turn the shower on plus softer hair, less dry skin, no watering eyes.
Chlorine kills living cells! We are all at risk but none more so than children and those with respiratory problems, skin disorders, dry hair etc.
Breast, colon and bladder cancer have been linked to exposure to chlorine in drinking and bathing water. Using a shower filter will remove the Chlorine and other harmful contaminants from the water, stop premature aging, dryness and itching of the skin. Help avoid thinning, discolouration and poor hair health. Protect your eyes, your nasal linings and lungs. Ensure total physical well being.
This filter contains a mixture of Granular Activated Carbon, in conjunction with 20grams of KDF 55. KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion) is a high purity copper-zinc formulation that uses basic chemical process known as redox (oxidation/reduction) to remove Chlorine, Lead, Mercury, Iron & Hydrogen Sulphide from your water supply.
The process also has a mild anti-bacterial, algaecitic & fungicide effect and may reduce the accumulation of lime scale.
As the chlorinated water passes through the KDF media, the chlorine element is changed into harmless, water-soluble chlorides, by means of an electro-chemical reaction. During this reaction other heavy metals are attracted to the media and effectively removed from the water supply.
GAC, also has the ability to adsorb organic and some inorganic contaminants, coupled with KDF media, both the effectiveness and useful life cycle of the and useful life cycle of the filter is increased.

There are many tests available to measure the concentration of Free Chlorine, we have used a standard DPD Colorimetric Test Kit, accuracy of readings is within an incremental range of 0.5mg/L (ppm) Chlorine, tests were carried out with samples taken from the inflow and outflow of the shower filter at seven day intervals over a period of six months. The test shower was run for approximate throughput of 50 gallons per day.
We bring you a quality filter manufactured and tested to NSF standards. We guarantee our filters with our 100% money back guarantee.
