If you live in urban areas or use well water, there’s a good chance that there are chemicals getting into your showers that you don’t want on your body. That’s where a shower filter comes in! We’ve put together a list of the top ten filters so that you can choose the one that best suits your needs! Before we get started with the list, here are some things you should know.
Stages: This is the number of filtration stages that the filter contains or the number of layers that the water has to get through to get to you. The higher the number of stages, the purer the water generally is.
Replacement Filters Included: Does it come with additional filters? This is useful so that you don’t immediately have to reorder a replacement cartridge after purchasing the starter kit. Getting it all at once is much more cost efficient as well.
Pieces: How many different pieces do the kits comes with? This can include different filters, vitamin C blocks, and replacement cartridges. The more pieces that the kit comes with, the less you have to purchase later.
Color: This refers to which color the actual filter housing is. Some of them are white, but most of them are chrome. Rarely, you’ll find one on this list that’s clear so you can see the filtration in motion.
Filter Duration: How long the filter lasts can tell you how often you’ll have to change the cartridge or ball mixture out for the best results, and for getting the most out of your shower filter. Pay attention to this.
Vitamin C: Some of the filters on our list will include a Vitamin C block. This adds additional Vitamin C to your water after it’s been filtered, which can help to keep your skin moisturized and feeling soft.
With that information under your belt, we can move on to showing you the best shower filter selections. Our top pick and budget pick are our favorites, so you should check them out before moving on to the rest of the filters on our list. Choose the one that makes the most sense for your lifestyle. We know you’ll enjoy getting totally clean no matter which filters you choose to purchase!
