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 each water filter for shower use, and all shower filters must flow at 2.5 gallons of water per minute. Thus, the science behind shower head water filtering must take into account the unique situation in the shower, including temperature, flow rate, and volume. Berkey understands this process and took all of these factors into account while developing our unique shower water filters.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Berkey Shower Filter works on a similar principle to a catalytic converter in an automobile. Inside the shower filter, free chlorine is converted into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this chemical reaction taking place inside the Berkey shower filter is known as \"Reduction-Oxidation,\" commonly referred to as Redox. Redox reactions can be chemically complex. Simply stated, during a Redox reaction electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new elements. For instance, when free chlorine comes in contact with the Berkey filtration media, it is changed into a benign, water-soluble chloride. This reaction changes free-chlorine to a larger chloride element, too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the skin. Hospitals, restaurants, municipal water treatment facilities, and homes rely on this same process media to safely reduce or remove free chlorine, hydrogen sulfide and bacteria from their water.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eProprietary filter media granules are high-purity copper-zinc formulations that are used in shower filter applications to reduce hydrogen sulfide, microorganisms, and scale. Shower water filtered through redox media controls microorganism growth and reduces bacteria and other microorganisms by electron transport, causing cellular damage. Inside the Berkey filter, the Proprietary filter media also kills bacteria by direct electrochemical contact and by the flash formation of hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide, both of which interfere with a microorganism's ability to function. High-purity copper-zinc redox media consistently remove 99% of free chlorine by electrochemically reducing dissolved chlorine gas to water-soluble chloride ions.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWhen pressurized shower water is filtered through the Berkey proprietary filter media, soluble lead cations are reduced to insoluble lead atoms, which are electroplated onto the surface of the filter.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003e\u003cspan\u003eFilter replacement:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAll Berkey shower filters purchased typically last 20,000 gallons before needing replacement or one year whichever comes first, in which case you would need to shop for and buy another one online.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eNotice of Limitations: \\\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e--The Shower Berkey Shower Filter® is designed for potable water systems only.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e--Do not allow to freeze, or use with water over 110 F (43 C) temperature.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e--Maximum water pressure should not exceed 100 psi.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e--Do not use in high iron content water systems that use chemicals such as polyphosphates.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e--The Shower Berkey Shower Filter™ is not to be used for drinking purposes.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e","published_at":"2019-02-21T01:35:21-07:00","created_at":"2019-02-21T01:38:51-07:00","vendor":"Berkey","type":"Accessories","tags":["nonvar"],"price":6500,"price_min":6500,"price_max":6500,"available":false,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":8000,"compare_at_price_min":8000,"compare_at_price_max":8000,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":27058541559908,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"SU1","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":false,"name":"Berkey Shower Filter","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":6500,"weight":1361,"compare_at_price":8000,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":""}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0167\/5480\/2788\/products\/Berkey_Shower_Filter.png?v=1567780796","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0167\/5480\/2788\/products\/Berley-Shower-Filter-Out-Of-Stock.jpg?v=1567780802"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0167\/5480\/2788\/products\/Berkey_Shower_Filter.png?v=1567780796","options":["Title"],"content":"\u003cdiv class=\"c-pdp__twoCol\" data-module_number=\"3\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"c-pdp__twoColContainer o-grid\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"c-pdpSpecs o-grid__large-60\"\u003e\n\u003ch2 class=\"c-jumbo c-pdp__twoColTitle js-acc c-pdpAcc c-pdpSpecsLAB\"\u003eSpecifications\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"js-accTarger\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"c-pdpSpecs__block\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"c-pdpSpecs__media\"\u003e\n\u003ch3 class=\"c-pdpSpecs__mediaHead\"\u003eBerkey® Shower Filter \u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cimg title=\"Berkey Shower Filter SU1\" class=\"lazyload\" data-src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0167\/5480\/2788\/files\/shower_filter_2901cd7d-098b-431e-91de-0c183a0ee0e0.png?15447\" alt=\"Berkey Shower Filter SU1\" width=\"1200\" height=\"1200\"\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"c-pdpSpecs__data\"\u003e\n\u003ctable class=\"c-pdpSpecs__table\"\u003e\n\u003ctbody\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd width=\"30%\"\u003eMassage Head\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e\u003cspan\u003eShower Filter Head Included - Thread on your shower arm and you're ready to go!\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd width=\"30%\"\u003eContaminants  Removed\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd\u003e Reduces up to 95% of Chlorine in the shower environment.

Filter FAQ

Berkey Shower Filter

The Berkey shower water filter contains a patented high purity blend of zinc, calcium and copper which are most effective in reducing free chlorine, dirt and odors.

Proprietary filter media also kills bacteria and inhibits the growth of bacteria, algae, and fungi. As an added benefit our filter media is completely safe, so the process is not toxic and does not cause any adverse side effects.

Chlorine Vapor in the Shower

In the shower environment, chlorine can either be in a 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 each water filter for shower use, and all shower filters must flow at 2.5 gallons of water per minute. Thus, the science behind shower head water filtering must take into account the unique situation in the shower, including temperature, flow rate, and volume. Berkey understands this process and took all of these factors into account while developing our unique shower water filters.

When pressurized shower water is filtered through the Berkey proprietary filter media, soluble lead cations are reduced to insoluble lead atoms, which are electroplated onto the surface of the filter.

Filter replacement:

All Berkey shower filters purchased typically last 20,000 gallons before needing replacement or one year whichever comes first, in which case you would need to shop for and buy another one online.
