Feel the difference.
Skin is our largest organ. When showering, chemicals in our shower water enter our bodies through skin absorption and inhalation of steam. Chlorine and other synthetic chemicals readily evaporate in hot shower steam and can suck moisture from our skin causing excess drying. Aquasana shower filters target synthetic chemicals and remove over 90%of chlorine giving you noticeably softer, healthier skin.
How it works
The Aquasana Premium Shower Filter uses our unique dual-stage, up flow design for maximum performance. First, our potent mix of copper/zinc media reacts with chemicals in your shower water to create an oxidation reduction process (or redox) to effectively change free chlorine in your water into harmless water-soluble chloride. Benign, water-soluble chloride will not strip your hair or skin of their protective oils and proteins and will not evaporate into toxic shower steam. In addition, we use coconut shell carbon to filter synthetic chemicals and further reduce chlorine for the healthiest shower water possible.

- Proven sturdy and effective design
- Filters down to 10 microns
The Aquasana Shower Filter has a unique two-stage filter process for the healthiest shower possible. The shower head’s unique design prevents any pressure loss, while using as little as 6.6 liters per minute (1.75 gallons per minute) – saving up to 41,640 liters per year (11,000 gallons per year) of hot water.
Stage 1 Natural KDF Copper/Zinc mineral media: removes chlorines, heavy metals, microorganisms, scale, and enhances pH balance. Many shower filters claim to use reduce chlorine, but the Aquasana system uses the highest quality KDF filtration media and at a higher quantity than any other filter on the market. Non-toxic 100% recyclable technology – no chemical additives.
Stage 2 Centaur Carbon medium for the removal of synthetic chemicals, chlorine and chloramines, THMs and VOCs that vaporize from tap water and are inhaled or quickly absorbed through the skin.
The shower filter installs in seconds without tools. Refill cartridges are recommended every 6 depending on the water quality and usage.
Why Do I Need A Shower Filter?
Showering in warm water opens the pores of the skin and allows a high rate of absorption of chlorine and other chemicals. In fact, the steam we inhale while showering can contain up to 30 times the level of chlorine and other synthetic chemicals than tap water. This is because these toxic chemicals found in tap water vaporize at lower temperatures and at a much faster rate than water.
A recent report in the American Journal of Public Health linked chlorine to significant increases in certain types of cancer and stated that “up to 2/3 of the harmful exposure was due to skin absorption and inhalation while showering.” Inhalation of chlorine and chemical vapors is known to be a strong irritant to the tissues in our lungs and is suspected to be a leading cause of asthma and bronchitis.
