Chanson Shower Filter
Most municipal water districts add chlorine or chloramines (chlorine + ammonia) to tap water to disinfect, but unfortunately the byproducts can do a number on our health. According to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), "Breathing small amounts of chlorine for short periods of time adversely affects the human respiratory system. Effects range from coughing and chest pain to water retention in the lungs. Chlorine irritates the skin, the eyes, and the respiratory system."
The Chanson Spa Shower Filter provides a long-lasting solution to the problems associated with daily exposure to chlorine and chloramines. Without it, a ten minute shower results in absorption of the same amount of chlorine as if you were to drink eight 8 oz. glasses of the same water!
Our Chanson Spa Shower Filter uses the highest quality chlorine and chloramine reduction material calcium sulfite which has been proven more effective than active carbon and KDF which some competitors use due to cost. The Chanson Spa Shower Filter is specially engineered to address at least 95% of harmful chlorine and chloramines from your shower water. It is the only shower filter that softens and energizes the water in addition to addressing chlorine and chloramines.

Swirling Anion Deflector - The innovative deflector generates negative ions by swirling in the water. In nature, water close to waterfalls is full of negative ions. The impact between the water molecules and the rocky environment allows the water to absorb a negative electrostatic charge. When the human body absorbs these energizing ions, great health improvements are often seen, including cleansing of the blood, enhancement of the immune system, improved sleep quality, and overall reduced stress and fatigue on your body.
Ceramic FIR Ball Filtration - The Chanson shower filter contains highly specialized ceramic balls with FIR that reduces the water's surface tension. This allows for an increase in lathering of soap and shampoos. The ceramic FIR filtration gives the water a lighter, softer feel. It improves wetness and makes coarse, dry hair soft and silky.
How is the Chanson shower filter installed? Simply screw the filter inlet onto your existing shower arm. No special tools are required, just hand tightening. The Chanson shower filter should be used with a good quality, low flow shower head that has been purchased since 1995. This guarantees conformity to the U.S. Energy Policy Act, which limits water delivery to no more than 2.25 gallons per minute at 80 PSI.
How long does the Chanson shower filter last? Shower filter media life depends on the quality of your source water - the cleaner your water, the longer the filter will last. We have determined that the filter will last approximately 12-18 months for a family of four, using 15,000-20,000 liters in that period. The filter is designed so it does not have to be backflushed, and shower filter media replacement ($34.99, available in our web store) is easy - simply unscrew the side body cap, dump out the existing filter, replace with the new filter, and screw the body cap back on. The shower filter body should last for several years if taken care of properly.
