You can trust Rainshow'r shower filters to annihilate 90% or more of the offending chlorine from your bath water. Rainshow'r shower filters are ranked among the highest quality shower filters in the industry and is economically priced. This is impressive considering it is one of the only shower filter companies that is still completely manufactured in the United States. With over 15 years of experience designing and manufacturing shower filters Rainshow'r has built a great reputation with its thousands of satisfied customers. This experience is why you will never see activated carbon being used in any of Rainshower's shower filters. Activated carbon is not recommended for hot water use. Rainshow'r Mfg. Co., Inc. was the first shower filter manufacturer to use KDF in their shower filter and today, non-carbon shower filters are the norm, and KDF the preferred media among shower filter designers.
KDF is comprised of 50% copper and 50% zinc. It removes free chlorine by reversing the electrochemical process that originally separated the chlorine from sodium in a brine solution. The chlorine is recombine with calcium to form a soluble chloride, which washes out of the filter and is harmless to humans. KDF not only offers superior dechlorination capabilities, it lasts much longer than carbon media does. Depending upon the filter model, the amount of KDF, and the water source a KDF shower filter should last seven to nine months. KDF is also bacteriostatic (inhibits reproduction), and tends to reduce or eliminate fungus and mildew build up in the shower.
Rainshower also incorporates crystaline quartz technology. The purpose of washed and sun dried quartz crystals is to help "energize" the water by reducing the water's surface tension. This allows for an increase in the sudsuing and lathering of soaps and shampoos. The water has a "lighter" feel, similar to the feeling of softened water. Rainshow'r introduced crystal to the general market through the CQ-1000 shower filter series in March 1998 and to its knowledge was the first to do so. Because of the electron movement caused in shocking the crystal an electrical charge is generated which Rainshow'r believes reduces the size of water molecule clusters. In other words making smaller water clusters from larger water clusters. This is also known as “wetter” water. The evidence to support this is claim is the increased sudsing and lathering that result. As with all the materials used in Rainshow'r products, crystal (silicon dioxide) is completely safe and non-toxic. Not only is its chemical combination non-toxic but because of its hardness it cannot absorb materials which could be harmful. Rainshow'r uses only virgin crystal extracted from a specially selected mine in North America. The crystal is ground and processed to Rainshow'r specifications and shipped to us in two thousand pound lots. It is then washed in chlorine free water again and dried in the sun for at least two days. One ounce of the crystal is added to each CQ-1000 cartridge and layer it at the outlet. It is not integrated into the KDF filtering media
Whedon's Fixed Action Shower Head
The type of shower head used with the filter is an important factor in controlling flow rate through the filter. The shower head should provide the desired amount of water reduction, while giving the user an acceptable shower delivery. The best results are achieved with a high quality, flow-reduction shower head such as the name brand shower head that Rainshow'r provides. This is why Rainshow'r recommends the Whedon fixed action shower head filters. The Whedon makes a fixed action spray as well as Whedon's hand held hose kit. The Amcor model has a massage action shower head as well as a hand held hose kit.
