Who doesn’t love taking a long and cozy shower at the beginning and after a long, tiring day? Well, I know, and that’s why I made to sure fit a good shower head in my bathroom to enjoy a perfectly odor-free, warm stream of water. Aquasana AQ-4100, like any other top-notch shower head, can effectively remove chlorine and bacteria from the water. If you’re thinking about buying one for your bathroom too, I think I can help you with the decision.
Product Highlights in a Nutshell:
- The very rationally designed upflow structure of AQ-4100 is what makes it stand out. Not only it prevents clogging resulted mostly from scale build-up but also keeps the water pressure at an optimum level all the time.
- Its patented coconut shell carbon is the backbone of this product. It single-handedly blocks harmful chemicals and chlorine from contaminating your bathing water. If you are currently noticing that your hair and skin feels inadequately washed even after using premium soaps and shampoos, you do need a water treatment system like this.
- The filter is quite long-lasting. I have to buy the replacement filter only twice a year even though the amount of water impurities in my area is pretty damn high.
- All you need is a teflon tape to mount the shower head.
What I Liked
The Quality of Water
The quality of the tap water improved immensely after installing this shower head. I could sense that by observing things like my skin stopped feeling dry like before, the hair fall issue reduced drastically, skin problems like rashes and blackheads also became less frequent. The manufacturer claims that this product removes chlorine up to 91%. Not sure about the figures but it definitely does what it promises quite well.
I used the test strips to check the pH level of water, and the result was pleasing. Apart from common harsh chemicals, it can also remove pesticides and other contaminants found in sewage water. I think that speaks volume of this product’s credibility.
Easy-peasy Installation and Maintenance
I am not very good with tools, but it didn’t take me more than 25 minutes to mount this filter and showerhead. You can also use a different showerhead with Aquasana’s filter and enjoy the similar water quality and pressure. As for the maintenance, you can open the unit easily by turning the knob to clear the debris. On top of that, it is designed in such a way that the showerhead would barely get clogged even after purifying 10,000 gallons of water.
Aquasana’s adjustable showerhead system is the perfect way to have a luxurious bathing experience without burning a hole in your pocket. I love using a low-flow setting because it calms my senses and at the same time, saves a lot of water. There are several other settings to choose from, and each has a charm of its own.
Stable Water Pressure
I have noticed that many water filters tend to reduce the water pressure to a certain extent after the installation. I was kind of worried that this would do the same. But its standard 2.5 GPM flow rate ensured a consistent water flow for months and still going strong.
Things I Didn’t Like
Some people have apparently complained about leakage issue, but I didn’t encounter any.
All in all, I can safely conclude that you won’t regret purchasing this product unless there’s any manufacturing defect. It is durable, easy to install and has every necessary feature to let you have a relaxing, comfortable bathing experience. If you are dealing with skin and hair issues due to the poor quality of water, it is least likely to disappoint.
