Benefits of a Shower Filter
Chlorine is a commonly used chemical by municipal water treatment facilities to kill microbes like bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and endospores. When you regularly wash in water with higher levels of chlorine, you might experience negative effects of chlorine damage. When you insist on the premium Pentair Shower Filter, you can protect your body from the harsh chemicals that may be in your water and enjoy a spa-like experience from the comfort of your own home. With a Pentair Shower Filter, you can enjoy softer skin and hair, reduced skin dryness or flakiness, a reduction of unpleasant odors from your water, and reduced fading of color-treated hair. Features of this product include:
- Hassle-free, DIY installation
- Filter life of 2,000 ten-minute showers
- Better shower water without loss of water pressure
- Includes a refreshing Ocean Breeze Scent Bar
- Simple snap-in filter replacements

How it works
Incoming water passes through a patented blend of copper and zinc oxidation media used to filter chlorine and other contaminants from your shower water.
Reduction of Synthetic Chemicals
Water continues through a special blend of steam activated carbon media. This media is designed to filter out chloramines and synthetic chemicals as well as unpleasant odors.
Before water makes its way through the shower head, it passes through a Far-Infrared emitting volcanic media that introduces reduced or negative ions into the water. This results in a lower surface tension in the water, allowing for better hydration of hair and skin. Changing the surface tension in the water also makes the water feel softer on your hair and skin.

No warranty is made, and is explicitly excluded, with respect to defects or damages due to neglect, misuse, alterations, accident, misapplication, physical damage, or damage caused by fire, acts of God, or freezing.

Customer must register their system with Pentair within 90 days of purchase in order to obtain a warranty. Warranty will discontinue after the unit is removed from the location where it was originally installed. Warranty begins on the date of delivery of product to the customer. Improper maintenance of system (i.e. not replacing filters or media, for example) on time will be considered "neglect" and explicitly excluded from the warranty.

Will the Premium Shower Filter fit my existing shower pipe?
The system fits shower pipes with 1/2” connections, which is the standard shower pipe connection size for most homes.
How much space do I need above my shower pipe?
You will need at least 6 1/4” of space above your shower pipe to install the Premium Shower Filter.
Will this shower filter reduce my water pressure?
No. We designed our shower filter to eliminate pressure drop on the constant pressure mode. You may experience a slight pressure drop on the water conservation mode.
How many showers can I take before I need to change my filter?
Each filter lasts for 30,000 gallons. So, at the 1.5 gallons per minute setting, you can expect your filter to work for 2,000 10-minute showers or 1,333 15-minute showers. The average lifespan is about six to nine months.
Can I use my own showerhead or hand-held wand with your shower filter system?
Yes, you can use your own shower head as long as the connection is a standard 1/2 inch. We do however recommend that you use the optional dual-flow showerhead since it was designed to optimize the benefits and lifespan of your Pentair Shower Filter. Other showerheads might flow at a higher rate than 1.5 gallons per minute, reducing the life of the filter as well as slightly diminishing some of the filter's positive effects. Please keep in mind that showerheads with cut-off valves may damage the filter and void your warranty.
