Berkey Filter Details
Berkey shower filter with Europe fitting for all showers. - Amazing for hair and skin.
Berkey Shower Filter™ unit will remove chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, scale and other harmful chemicals from your shower & bath water.
Amazing and guaranteed results on skin and hair. Gives a perfectly clear and chemical free shower & bath water.
Berkey Shower Filters contain special KDF55 granules, which are extremely powerful for removing Chlorine, Hydrogen Sulfide, Micro-organisms, Scale, Iron, and Iron Oxide and also for killing and inhibiting the growth of bacteria in water.
The filters are BPA-free and fully effective for both hot and cold water. Berkey Shower Filters are much more powerful than other filters on the market because they are fully effective in hot water up to 49 degrees. Most shower filters you find on the market today are only effective for cold and medium-hot water. The Berkey Shower Filter can also be used as an under-sink filter. - Please note. Make sure the water runs inside first at the flat end. See photos. Water needs to run inside in the right direction. See photos of the Berkey Shower Filters below.
Berkey Shower Filters contain a new and improved shower filtration medium which is highly effective in reducing free chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, scale and iron oxide (rust) from water.
In the shower environment, chlorine can found either 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 is subsequently inhaled into the body. This can be harmful.
The United States regulates all showerhead flow at 2.5 gallons per minute. This means that the science behind shower filtration must take into account the unique situation presented by the shower, including temperature, flow rate and volume. Since chlorination is a long established public health practice necessary for the disinfection of drinking water, consumers already know the health benefits that drinking filtered water can provide.
However, some people are surprised to learn that 50% of their daily exposure to chlorine is in the shower. The other 50% comes from unfiltered drinking water. Therefore filtering shower water is equally important.
Documented scientific studies conclude that taking long hot showers is a potential health risk. In the enclosed environment of the shower stall, chlorine vaporizes and is inhaled. To a lesser degree, dermal absorption also occurs. Chlorine is added to water to kill pathogenic micro-organisms such as bacteria. The highly reactive chlorine combines with fatty acids and carbon fragments to form a variety of toxic compounds. 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.
In addition to the benefits of filtering water, there are cosmetic benefits. Symptoms of chlorine exposure include dry and/or flaking skin, dry brittle hair and red irritated eyes. Filtering your shower water reduces these symptoms.
Using a patented blend of high-purity calcium, copper and zinc, the Berkey Shower Filter™ unit works on a similar principle to the Catalytic Converter in a motor vehicle. During shower filtration, free chlorine is converted into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this chemical reaction is "Reduction-Oxidation", commonly known 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 medium it is changed into a benign water-soluble chloride. This reaction converts free chlorine to a larger chloride element that is too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the skin. It is then carried harmlessly through the water supply.
The lifetime of the Berkey Shower Filter™ unit is approximately 1 year or 75,000 liters.
Size is 13 x 11 x 11 cm

We used our own shower head. There were some items we had to check first: 1) ensure the shower head was a low water-flow for the filter to work correctly (per the included filter instructions). We replaced the existing head with a new one to conform to the recommended flow rate. 2) The filter is somewhat large (in length) so we checked that once installed the tallest person in our household could easily stand under the head. Once these were confirmed, the installation was easy and the fit was good. The quality of the filter is very good.
Bit heavy for certain shower heads. Needs slimmer models so can be used with hand held showers as well.
Very easy to set up and works really well
Keeps our water soft and chlorine- free- perfect for sensitive and eczema-prone skin! We love it!
The water is just so soft and almost sweet, game changer for our skin and hair, absolutely LOVE IT!
