Rainshow'r CQ-1000MS Dechlorinating Shower Filter with Shower Pro Massage Head, allows you to enjoy all the benefits of a chlorine-free shower with the added benefit of an internationally recognized showerhead with 3 positions – spray, massage, and combination spray/massage. Excessive amounts of chlorine in water are known to cause health issues, and to have drying effects on the skin and hair. Rainshow'r CQ-1000MS solves the chlorine issue with KDF®-55 filtering media (a 50/50 alloy of copper and zinc in granular mesh form), which removes over 90% of free chlorine from shower water. KDF-55 does not trap or hold chlorine – it converts it into a harmless and environmentally safe, soluble chloride. KDF-55 contains no harmful or toxic ingredients, and is commonly used in treating drinking water. The Rainshow'r filtration system starts with a polyester pre-filter to catch any sediment or other particles, then 15.5 ozs of KDF-55, and finally a 1-oz layer of all-natural, sun-dried quartz crystals, which "invigorate" filtered water for a refreshing shower feel and better sudsing of bath products.
The Rainshow'r filter cartridge has an effective filtering life of approximately 6-7 months (for a family of four) or an estimated 15,000-20,000 gallons of water. Service life may vary depending upon water quality, temperature, flow rate, and other factors ¹ – for example, KDF-55 will dechlorinate longer in clean water than it will in "dirty" water. All Rainshow'r CQ-1000 shower filters are designed to work most effectively with high quality, low-flow showerheads with flow rates of 2.5 gallons per minute, including the provided Shower Pro Massage Head. This ensures water has adequate contact time with the filter to maximize chlorine conversion, and also meets federal guidelines.² The CQ-1000MS shower filter system is very easy to install, and replacing the pop-in filter cartridge is hassle free. Available in White. 1-Year Manufacturer's Limited Warranty (90 Days on Replaceable Filter Cartridge).
Replacement RCCQ-A Filter Cartridges for all CQ-1000 Shower Filter Systems are available through National Allergy (sold separately).
|¹||The ability of the KDF-55 shower filter to reduce free chlorine is, in part, a function of the quality of the water (i.e., sediment and turbidity levels). Therefore, it is difficult to determine precisely the number of gallons that can be effectively filtered, as each household's water quality and other factors will vary. Filter life estimates provided above are based on the manufacturer's assessment of average actual experience by tens of thousands of Rainshow'r customers over a 25-year period.|
|²||All Rainshow'r showerheads conform to the required 2.5 gallons per minute flow rate specified by the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 1992.|
