We live in a particularly hard water area and moving to a new house we noticed the chalky layers on the bath and bathroom windows more than ever. After living with it for six months we decided a remedy was needed. We were recommended this shower filter by a friend and it has been an absolute godsend. After only a few days the chalky residue had diminished dramatically but even moreso I noticed the difference in feel of my skin (which initially was a bonus ‘side-effect’!)
The shower water itself, like my skin, feels (no pun intended) so much softer and we’re using noticeably less soap/shampoo/conditioner etc. as it lathers with ease. I initially had worries about the weight of the unit but even our creaky old shower has no problems supporting it as it fits just above the bracket. There’s no significant change in water flow and it fits so simply to the shower head.
As such, I would recommend this whole-heartedly (already have to friends and family…) and I can only imagine the benefits for someone who suffers from specific dry skin problems. Don’t think twice about the expense – it’s worth its weight in gold.
