Product Description

Why Vitashower (Vitamin C Shower Filter)? The water we use from city water systems has been treated by chemicals such as chlorine and chloramine. By definition, "chlorine is a nonmetallic element occurring naturally as a poisonous, greenish-yellow gas with an irritating, pungent odor." The new technology used in the Vitashower Vitamin C Shower Filter astonishingly uses a vitamin as the agent to remove the harmful chlorine in the water we use to shower.

Don't be fooled by the imitation knockoffs...this is the Original Vitashower!
and there are no improved models!

The Vitashower Shower Filter releases the exact amount of vitamin to neutralize all chlorine or chloramine as the water passes through the shower filter. When the water is shut off, the Vitashower Shower Filter stops releasing the vitamin. This economy of vitamin release increases the useful life of the Vitashower Vitamin C Shower Filter significantly. Also, the Vitamin Shower Filter works in any water temperature, any water pressure and the lifetime of the filter does not depend on the water quality. This Vitamin shower filter (Vitashower) uses pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C as a dechlorinating agent. Each Vitashower shower filter contains roughly 250 grams of Vitamin C and is capable of neutralizing nearly 100% of the chlorine and most chloramines found in your shower water during its lifetime. This is true without regard to water pressure, water temperature or the quality of your water. This claim cannot be made by any of the more traditional shower filter technologies available today, such as KDF or Activated Charcoal. The life time is independent on the temperature and pressure of water and about 300% to 400% longer than that of KDF shower filter. Also, the flow rate of the shower head is roughly the same before and after the Vitamin shower filter is installed. It works universally as long as the regular shower head can be used.

Important Information

Indications
To better appreciate the power of using a vitamin as the dechlorination agent in the Vitashower Shower Filter, the hazards in our water supplies must be better understood. These dangers are real and should not be overlooked or accepted by the general public.<br><br> Chlorine is universally used to chemically disinfect public water systems because of its toxic effect on harmful germs, bacteria and disease-causing organisms. As defined above, chlorine is a toxic gas. With greater exposure to toxic chlorine contained in water supplies, the potential health dangers we face become more real.<br><br> During the bathing process, the chlorine evaporates out of the water and is inhaled. This toxic gas can also spread through the house and be inhaled by others. Some reports claim that as much chlorine enters the body by inhaling steamy chlorinated shower vapors or through the open pores of the skin as that which enters the body by drinking chlorinated water during the entire day. This increased exposure to the adverse effects of chlorine by household residents can be from 6 to 100 times more than medically recommended.<br><br> Chlorine also attacks the skin and skin oils, creating a dermal drying effect. Shower water can also cause or worsen skin irritations and rashes as well as drying the skin. Showering and bathing in chlorinated water will also result in the breakage of hair shafts. Because chlorine is absorbed into the body through the skin, additional physical problems can ensue. Chloramine, although a more stable compound, contains chlorine and ammonia and is also used to control bacteria in water systems. Its harmful effects cause the same dangers as pure chlorine.<br><br> Adding the Vitashower Vitamin C shower filter to your existing daily skin care and hair care routine is guaranteed to produce positive results that will gradually improve over time.*

She has been very happy with the filter.

The problem is that I used it once and it began leaking at the top between the screw and the plastic housing.

I have been using shower filters since about 1 year and tried Vitashower after having used Aquasana.

I have had horrible skin irritation since moving to where I live now (south Texas coast). I noticed that I was always extremely itchy after showering and that I had spots on my skin that resembled some kind of excema, even though I had never in my life had any problems with my skin before. I also noticed that my skin cleared up completely after about three days of being away from home. I went to Europe twice and to California, and my skin cleared up and I had no more irritation while I was away, but upon returning my skin would break out again.

It was then that I started suspecting the water. I found out that they put a LOT of chloramine in the water here. They advertised the fact that they were putting a lot of chlorine in the system because they couldn't control the bacteria, and the city's website says they use chloramine.

I read about this filter and was so miserable from itching that I decided that trying it couldn't hurt. It is amazing! My skin cleared up completely after using this for about a week. It only lasted for a little over two months though, but they do say how much chlorine/chloramine is in the water affects the life of the filter, and there is a whole lot in the water here, so I'm not surprised. I am ordering another one, as my skin is starting to break out and I'm itching like crazy after my showers again. Well worth every single penny!

Bought one late 2009 as a gift for my sister. I'd studied the available options and consulted with her. She is a pharmaceuticals production line validation engineer (means that she test and documents all will meet FDA inspection before FDA arrives).

She is familiar with the various filtration techniques and lives in an area with very high free chlorine in the water. She has a meter at works that they use to test their filtration systems for before-after free chlorine.

She has been very happy with the filter. It replaced a relatively ineffective carbon block one I'd bought her previously.

Later, I bought one even though I live in a place where chloramine (sp.) is used 8 months and free chlorine is used for 4 each year. It has worked very well for me and I am getting another after 5 months. My sister's is going strong after 11 months!

The filter should not work on chloramine, but is a major benefit in water smell (cannot explain why) - and now that the water people have witched to free chlorine for winter is continuing to do a great job.

Do not bother to try and refill - the plastic will not take it. Just buy another and install. Use teflon tape and be sure to NOT tighten to much or the plastic may crack.

Until there is a filter that has test results that prove it works with chloramine, this is my choice.

---- Update Jan 2, 2011

Replaced the old one after 5 months of no more than 1 shower per day. Cut open the old one. It was completely empty. It routes the shower water through the bottom cylinder which starts out filled with vitamin C. Given I didn't notice a shower water quality degradation with the filter being empty, I'll be curious if I notice a sudden improvement with the new one. Looking through the bottom port, the new filter is definitely chock full of a white crystalline powder - the vit C.

If you are going to buy a shower filter, there are only two kinds that really work for hot water: Ones that use vitamin C like the Vitashower or the Sprite filter. Most filters rate their effectiveness using cold water. Independent tests using hot shower temperature water show that most other types of filters are ineffective in hot water.

The problem with the Vitashower is its plastic body. I have owned three and they all leaked at the upstream connection to the water pipe. the leaks get progressively worse until you have to throw it away - I mean like spraying onto the shower ceiling and walls kind of leak.

Last one I bought actually had a two inch long crack on its side right out of the box -water sprayed everywhere!

I've given up on the Vitashower and bought a Sprite instead. I will go back to the Vitashower if they ever come out with a model that has a metal body and replaceable filter media.

I installed this about 3 weeks ago and what a difference. Gone is the dry, lifeless, bodyless frizzy hair and dry skin. I had just assumed it was my diet or something that was causing the problem. It was my WATER.

This filter neutralizes Chloramine, which is a tricky little combo purfication chemical made of Chlorine and Ammonia, that many localities put in water. It has a Chlorine smell and also a pungent smell and is very damaging to skin and hair. After the very first shower I could see and feel the body return to my hair and suppleness to my skin and it has only gotten better with continued use. Vitamin C combined with water indeed does neutralize the bad stuff that is added to public water.

I am using the Vitashower with a low-flow 1.6gpm shower head. Obviously slowing the flow is using less water, but I think it is also maximizing the effects the Vitashower has on the water by allowing the water to be in contact with the filter longer as it passes through.

Installing this lowered my showerhead too much so I did have to replace my normal shower arm an inexpensive boom arm type that lets me raise the shower head. While not light, the Vitashower also is not heavy and does not stress the boom arm too much.

I highly recommend this one to those tired of their showers making them look ill.

**Update**
Continued to have good success with these until purchasing 2 new ones in May 2013. The Vitamin C still does a good job on the water but the build quality of the units themselves is VERY poor. The problem is a poorly constructed joint between the shower pipe and the unit itself. Water sprays all over the place, including up to the ceiling and completely out of the shower.
