TYPE OF FILTER
The Pelican Shower Filter targets chlorine.
The thread size for shower filters is standard in the US, so this will fit any standard shower pipe and any shower head. If you are out of the US, you may need an adapter.
FOR WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES?
Most appropriate for municipalities using chlorine. Fits any US shower with a normal water pipe. In other countries you may need an adapter.
WHAT IS FILTERED?
Most chlorine is removed. This top-quality shower filter will also reduce herbicides, pesticides, chlorination byproducts, lead, copper, mercury and other heavy metals. Somewhat softens water naturally.
Please note: The primary risk of fluoride is from ingestion. Fluoride does not release into the air to be breathed in, like chlorine and chloramine. Nor is it readily absorbed through the skin like them. The primary risk from showering is chlorine or chloramine.

HOW DO THEY WORK?
|3-Stages of Water Filtration|
|Stage 1 – KDF Copper and Zinc Oxidation Media
Filters chlorine and other contaminants from your shower water.
|Stage 2 – GAC Carbon Media
Includes a special blend of steam activated carbon media. This is designed to filter out synthetic chemicals and unpleasant odors. Your water will smell fresh and clean.
|Stage 3 – Far Infrared Balls
Far-Infrared emitting volcanic media induce reduced or negative ions into the water. This results in lower surface tension in the water allowing for better hydration of hair and skin. This also makes the water feel softer on your hair and skin.
- Design puts filter above, leaving lots of headroom
- Convenient clip where to hang shower accessories
- Uses replacement filters
- Filter lasts 15,000 gallons or 750 ten minute showers
(manufacturer suggests average replacement every 9 months. We think once a year is good for most homes.)
- ‘Quick Connect’ for simple and easy filter change
- Easy Installation – no tools required
- The Shower Filter has been tested according to NSF/ANSI 177 for the
reduction of free available chlorine by KDF Fluid Treatment Laboratory.
- Tests show chlorine filtration starts at 100% removal, and slowly drops to between 93 and 97% removal at 12,000 gallons
These are very well-made, do what they say they will do, and are a good value.
