Buyers Beware

Beware of companies making over exaggerated claims for small, low cost shower filters. While most shower filtration products are reasonably priced, the small, very low cost brands typically offer little or no benefits. Unless a filter has the proper volume of filter media and the proper flow design, the desired benefits will not be realized.

Beware of companies that make “magical” or “healing” claims. There is nothing magical about water filtration, it’s an exact science. There are no mysterious healing benefits from “magnetizers”, “energizers” or “Far-infrared crystals” etc. Shower filtration should simply consist of the best chemical removal process, which typically involves a combination different filter medias such as KDF, a zinc/ copper media for removing chlorine and an activated charcoal for removing other synthetic chemicals. This combination will also help balance the water’s pH, providing both enhanced health and cosmetic effects.

Also beware of the direct sales people selling systems for two to four thousand dollars. What is worse than spending too much for any water treatment system, is spending too little. Do your research and find the best quality for the lowest price. This is where the internet comes in handy. We no longer need to fall for a sales pitch and pay more than what we need to.

I also suggest sticking with Canadian or USA made products. We make products with your health in mind. NOT profits.
