New Wave Enviro Premium Shower Filter -- 1 Filter
I have a whole house filter in my home but I asked my BF to install this at his house. He noticed a difference right away in how his hair and skin felt. And now when I shower there, I am getting nice clean water without the harsh chemicals. And the price is right!

Been using this for years to reduce chlorine.
Chlorine breaks out of steam in shower to inhale. You absorb more chlorine through inhalation than absorbed through the skin. Bought another one for the water spicket outside to water the vegetable garden.

It truly does what it says it does, best value too saved way more buying from Vitacost! Best Filter and best hair and skin since filtering.

Wow, I thought I had the bases covered. I had purchased a whole-house unit for about $1,000 that leaves the minerals in the water, etc. etc. Very high-tech. Well, my water must be fairly bad because eventually that stopped working quite so well. I had used these shower filters for years, then thought I didn't need them anymore. I do. My hair started to feel dirty even with the whole-house filter, so I thought why not try this again to see if it helped. It did. Immediately. My hair is back to normal ... wow! I don't care if you have another filter in the house. It seems to me that it's still pretty imperative to have a shower filter. After all, our skin will absorb shower water each day and any impurities are taken right into our system. But I admit that for me, it was also a cosmetic issue. The one bit of advice I have is to put Vaseline in the threads. Or olive oil ... it makes getting it apart later much easier. It might leak, though, so take your time to install it properly. I once didn't pay attention and there was a fine, unnoticeable spray hitting the wall behind the shower head. I use a ton of the plumbers tape that comes with the filter ... but it's worth the trouble. I realized I cannot live without it, after all.

I've had this filter for about two years. The other day I noticed that it had developed a pin hole near the top of it and water was spewing out of it. I called New Wave and was told the product had a one year warranty and they would not replace it free. Doesn't make much sense because I buy a new filter about every six months. I will see if I can find one more durable. Cannot recommend this product.
