The PureEarth Back-Washing KDF Shower Filter



You absorb more chlorine through your skin in one shower than what you typically drink all day. Chlorine can make skin dry and flaky. It can make hair dry and brittle, and ruin hair coloring and permanents. Chlorine often irritates the eyes and lungs. Note: if your water department is using chloramines, go HERE.

The PureEarth KDF shower filter by CanPro uses the patented KDF copper-zinc alloy (manufactured by KDF Fluid Treatment, Inc.), in a specially designed back-washable, replaceable cartridge. With this technology, our shower filter has been shown to effectively remove 97+% of this damaging chlorine for up to 12 months for two people. It has been tested by an independent lab to ANSI/NSF 42-2000 Class I to 10,000 gallons (click HERE to see laboratory test results). KDF can also remove low amounts iron, sulphur, and control the mold and mildew in your shower.

KDF is extremely well suited for shower water filtration with an operating temperature range up to 212�. In fact, as water temperature increases, the efficiency  of the KDF increases.  Carbon, used in some competitive brands, is most effective in water temperatures between 50� and 80�, and in fact can start to "off-load" trapped contaminants in hot water. With the typical shower water temperature of 95� to 105�, it is easy to see why KDF is the best media choice for shower filters!

The special interior design of the shower filter causes the KDF to be "swirled", enhancing contact with the water which improves efficiency. Click HERE to see a cut-away drawing. The streamlined "off-set" design only lowers the height 1 1/2", allowing for more head room compared to other shower filters.

A unique feature is the "Quick Flush" back-wash. Simply twisting the cartridge to the "Flush" mark will reverse the flow "back-wash" to release the sediment that can cause other shower filters to fail prematurely. A good example of this benefit is New York City, where century-old pipes contribute to excessively high sediment levels. While non-backwash shower filters were clogging up in less than two months, this shower filter is providing the full year of service!

Must be used with a 2.5 gpm (or less) showerhead for best results (we offer a GREAT 2.0 gpm water-saver showerhead as an option). Replacing the shower filter cartridge is a snap, too. Simply unscrew the holding ring and remove and replace the cartridge!

Shower filter overall dimensions: 6.7" tall X 3.75" diameter. Housing material: ABS plastic. Inlet: 1/2" female pipe thread, swivel. Outlet: 1/2" male pipe thread. To install, simply unscrew your existing shower head from the shower arm and screw on the shower filter. Then screw on your shower head on the end of the shower filter.
