Relax & enjoy a healthy shower!
Tested and Certified by the Water Quality Association according to NSF/ANSI 177 for the Reduction of Free Chlorine.
Did you know that by putting your fingers for 15 seconds into an ordinary glass of municipal tap water you absorb over 80 percent of the chlorine into your body? Imagine how much chlorine you absorb in a 10 minute shower!What's more, chlorine is not only absorbed by your skin, but inhaled from the steam and spray, where it goes directly into your bloodstream.
Chlorine creates dry hair, flaky skin, accelerated aging from free radical damage, reduced oxygen transport in lungs, and destruction of vitamins in the body. If you have chlorinated water and want to be healthy, a shower filter is a must. The Rainshower CQ-1000 shower filter is unique for two reasons. First, it utilizes the most potent KDF filter material on the market, which changes chlorine into a harmless, biodegradable compound. This is also the only filter to include Crystalline Quartz technology, in which specially-cured crystals act upon the water to create a softer, more energized shower feeling, as well as improved lathering and sudsing. To enjoy softer hair, younger-looking skin, and angst-free showers, breathe easy again with the Rainshower CQ-1000 shower filter! Rated for 15,000 to 20,000 gallons, it takes out 90+% of chlorine in your water, and should last a family of four about a year, depending on the condition of your water.
- Complete Unit Includes - CQ-1000 cartridge and housing (No shower head).
- Replacement Filter Cartridge Includes - Cartridge only no housing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do the shower head and bath ball filter remove chloramines from the water?
A. Though the shower head filter is highly effective in addressing chlorine and microorganisms, it does not address chloramines. Chloramines can be removed at the point of entry into the home with a whole house filter containing the right type of specialized carbon. Please consider a Whole House Water Filtration System that will remove chloramines, chlorine and a host of other contaminants from your home.
Q. What is the "harmless biodegradable compound" that your shower head and bath ball filter changes chlorine into?
A. Both the shower head filter and bath ball utilize KDF-55 media that consists of finely granulated copper and zinc alloys. The combination of these two alloys in the media allows a chemical reaction to take place when water passes through the media. In the KDF process, electrons are taken from harmful contaminants like chlorine and microorganisms. This loss of electrons changes contaminants into far less harmful, or even harmless, elements. For example, chlorine, when it loses an electron is changed into the harmless, naturally occurring water-soluble chemical chloride.
