I decided to figure out a way to refill this thing once its empty..
Brian Kramer
Being highly allergic to chlorine I can say that this filter does take it out completely of low to moderately chlorinated water.

From my experience having this showerhead for over 2 years, each filter lasts no more than a month.

I'm not really excited about a business model that puts Vitamin C in a plastic tube at what seems to be an unreasonable price.. I suppose if the price were $20 lower I might be willing to play the game. However, I decided to not play the game. I decided to figure out a way to refill this thing once its empty.. And its actually really easy.. Did you know that 3 lbs of vitamin C crystals costs $38 NOW Foods Vitamin C Crystals, Ascorbic Acid, 1 Pound???

So, here's an easy solution..

First. here's what you need.

One of these Sonaki filters
A Soldering iron with a pointed tip. (Pointed meaning like a pen or pencil) Sparkfun makes a really good and cheap ($9.95) soldering iron (30 W).
A cork plug from Ace Hardware ($0.23) Looks like a wine cork, but much smaller, diameter smaller than a dime, something that would fit, diameter-wise within dotted circle on bottom of filter..

Once your filter is out of Vitamin C, turn it upside down, and take the soldering iron, and, once its heated up, slowly pierce through the base of the filter. Once you have made a small hole remove the soldering iron away from the plastic for a second and then continue to gently use the soldering iron to widen the hole until the diameter approximates the diameter of the middle of the cork plug. Do your best with the soldering iron to keep the hole you make round. The diameter of the hole I made was inside the dotted circle on bottom of the filter. Next, put your cork plug in the filter to test fit and snugness.. You can even run a test in the shower device with the filter to see how well it retains water within the filter.. Once you're happy just pour in your own vitamin c and plug the hole and let 'er rip..

Verified Purchase
One of the important things to keep in mind with these shower filter inserts for the Sonaki hand held shower wand is that performance will vary depending on both the condition of the water in your specific area and also whether one is using in conjunction with them a primary NSF-certified shower filter designed to remove chlorine and other particulates first that the Sonaki wand with these vitmain C inserts can then attach to after that to address chloramine removal specifically. These two main factors appear to be the primary reason for the mixed reviews of their performance.

The way I came to know of these filter inserts was via an NSF-certified filter company who recommended the Sonaki hand held wand attachment/w vitamin C filter inserts. The reason for the recommendation at the time I first purchased the main filter was due to the fact that the filter I was buying already addressed chlorine removal and other harmful particulates, but not chloramine removal specifically which is where the vitamin C inserts came in to complete the picture.

So, if one does not already have a main filter in their shower designed to remove chlorine and other substances first, there could potentially be an undue amount of stress put on the vitamin C filters in the shower wand to remove all chlorine as well as chloramines---which it will do, but the preformance will most likely suffer tremendously as a result depending on the specific levels of chlorine/chloramine in one's local water. If the filter inserts are only having to handle the residual chloramines that a primary filter does not catch, then the performance should be as advertised or at least close to that.

Check your local Vitamin Shoppe to see how inexpensive Vit C powder cost. But you're out of luck cos' SONAKI forbids you from refilling these cartridges. Bad for your wallet, bad for the environment, good for SONAKI.

Now about potency, Vitamin C is most unstable under heat so do you actually think that you can expect any benefits from these cartridges after exposing them under hot water for some time? Never mind if you can see powder left in these things or not, worry about potency! Once again, if you're allowed to refill with fresh Vitamin C powder, this won't be an issue.

Look for a Vitamin C handheld showerhead from Japan that allows you to:

1) Refill it with any fresh (and cheap) Vitamin C powder that you acquire locally. Imagine the savings.

2) Emit negative ions too via high velocity means, not the conventional electrical method. The dilated pores on your skin during a hot shower allows you to absorb negative ions (and antioxidant from the Vit C) like never before.

3) With an on board indicator so that you know when to replenish it with fresh powder. No more guess work.

According to the Sonaki website, "the lifetime of the Vitamin C shower filter is about 3-6 months or 10,000 liters of water". From my experience having this showerhead for over 2 years, each filter lasts no more than a month. Now whether the Vitamin C filter works to purify chlorine is another matter. My aunt believes that it works. But I'm upset because a 5 pack is almost $50, meaning $10/month for these filters which I feel is too expensive.
