Description

Berkey Shower Filter

The Berkey KDF Shower Filter will typically last for 20,000 gallons or one year, whichever comes first. The shower filter contains KDF 55 granules, which are most effective in removing or reducing chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, microorganisms, scale and iron. Using a KDF shower filter promotes healthy skin and hair. It is effective with hot or cold water. 

In the shower environment, chlorine can either be in liquid or gas state. At higher water temperatures in the enclosed shower stall, free-chlorine moves from the liquid to the gas state, where it vaporizes and subsequently is inhaled. The United States regulates all showerhead flow at 2.5 gallons per minute. Thus, the science behind shower filtration must take into account the unique situation in the shower, including temperature, flow rate and volume.

Since chlorination is a long established public health practice necessary for the disinfection of drinking water, consumers are aware of the health benefit drinking filtered water can provide. However, it’s surprising for some people to learn that 50% of their daily exposure is in the shower. The other 50% comes from their drinking water. Therefore, filtering shower water is equally as important as filtering drinking water. 

At the beginning of the Berkey shower filter’s use, it reduces free-chlorine up to 95%, by the end of the filter’s one-year lifespan, the reduction is reduced to between 75% and 50%.

The media used in the Berkey shower filter converts free-chlorine and some combined chlorines to a harmless chloride salt. The media, a proprietary blend of copper, zinc and calcium sulfide works well in a variety of temperatures from hot to cold. The maximum temperature the Berkey shower can operate at is 120°F, but in order to avoid scalding in the shower, we recommend the temperature not exceed 110°F. The Berkey shower filter withstands 60 PSI water pressure.

As an added benefit, KDF media reduce lime scale, mold, and fungi in your shower. KDF process media are completely safe so the process is not toxic and causes no adverse side effects. 

  • “This filter takes out the chlorine that causes itchy dry skin. And there is no chlorine smell to irritate the lungs and eyes. Every home should use these filters to protect you and your family from harmful chemicals.”

    – Diane S., MA

The filter fits the standard size of shower head pipe, which is 1/2" NPT (National Pipe Thread). The 1/2" dimension refers to the inside diameter of the water supply pipe.

Available with or without a shower head.

Please note: Berkey shower filters are available for shipment to all U.S. states.

    Many people don't stop to consider that when you shower, not only do you bathe in the water, you also inhale a fine aerosol of water droplets—and anything else that's in that water. These Berkey filters are simply a must-have.

    My skin loves this Berkley filter! I noticed a difference after my first shower as my skin no longer itched from the chlorine of the city water.

  • Another great Berkey product!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We've owned a British Berkefeld tank for several years. While buying replacements filters for the tank, I noticed that Berkey makes a filter for the shower. We have well water and it dries out my skin and hair, especially in the summer months when I often shower several times a day. Even though I use a clarifying shampoo weekly, my hair was dull and brittle looking. After washing my hair 3 times using the filtered water, I have already noticed an improvement.
