You might not realize it but there’s actually a lot of stuff in your shower water, including things like chlorine, lead, and even bacteria. One way to make sure you’re getting the purest shower possible is to use a filtered shower head. That’s why we researched some of the best ones out there to help you find the right one for you. Before we get started, let’s take a look at some of the key features to keep in mind.
Finish: Maybe you want your shower head to match your bathroom fixtures, maybe you don’t, but either way, there are a few options to choose from. We found some great designs in shiny chrome, brushed chrome, and white.
Type: We found some great wall-mounted options and some handhelds. This really boils down to personal preference. Installation for both is super easy so you just need to decide whether or not you need the versatility that comes with a handheld.
Cartridge Life: These time frames are just estimates based on how long the filters last with average shower use. Some of them last for about 3 months and some can go up to 9, though most last for around 6.
Stages: The more stages the filter has, the more media the water passes through. One of these shower heads actually has 15 different stages! We found options with as few as 1 stage, too, along with everything in between.
Dimensions: If you have a shower with limited space or if you’re really tall or short and are worried about the angle of the shower head or if you want something that’s a certain size, pay special attention to the dimensions.
Warranty: Warranties vary a lot with these products. Some of the higher quality options come with warranties of 5 to 10 years. One is even covered for a lifetime. Others are only covered for a few months or a year.
