The importance of installing a shower head filter can be best understood by people who have bathed in smelly chlorinated water. I’ve been there too. After a tiring, long day, I would opt for a relaxing shower and come out of the bathroom feeling not clean enough. I resorted to internet for a quick fix and ended up giving this product a try. I hope my experience with this product will help people who are dealing with the same issue right now.
Features in a Nutshell
- The USP of the filter has to be its 5 spray settings. From a refreshing, full body shower mode to a light drizzle-like shower for muscle relaxation, it has a setting for every mood.
- An excessive level of chlorine in water can single-handedly causes a number of health, especially skin and hair issues. Those who are prone to skin diseases or suffering from hair loss would greatly benefit from the filtration system of this shower head filter.
- The installation roughly takes 15-20 minutes. You don’t need to have professional tools or call a plumber if you have the basic plumbing knowledge.
- The replacement filters for this NSF certified model are inexpensive, requires being changed within six months and not at all hard to find.
The manufacturers claim that this wall-mount shower head filter can remove up to 99% chlorine. High level of chlorine in water can lead to various skin problems like rashes, eczema and even psoriasis. My skin is so sensitive that I find it crazy at times. Let me not drift from the product review by describing all the skin problems I had experienced due to bathing in chlorinated water. Just know that it the premium filtration system of Culligan works like it promises and improves the hygiene level of the water to a great extent.
Prevention of Scale Build-up
If the water supplied in your area is high on minerals, namely calcium and magnesium, it may cause a sticky scale build up around the kitchen and bathroom fixtures. This clog-free nozzle of the shower head is damn easy to clean inside out, in case you notice a slight scale deposit around it.
Shower Speed Controls
The 5 spray settings offered by this model is a kind of luxury you can expect from high-end models. You can select a gentle spray setting for soothing your tired muscles or go for a regular shower option for maximum coverage. The pulsed jet spray mode is my personal favorite though.
This showerhead filter can be installed in minutes if you pertain to the manufacturer’s guidelines. It is ready to use as soon as you take it out of the box. Just wrap the unit around the shower with a Teflon tape and there you go. It couldn’t get easier.
The Culligan Showerhead with an in-built filter is approved by NSF. You can be assured that the model will purify 10,000 gallons of water before the filter needs a replacement. With proper care, it can last for more than 10 years is what I have heard.
It is not a water softener per se. If the hard water problem is too serious, the quality of the filtered water may vary from what I’ve said so far.
Culligan WSH-C125 is a low-cost solution for water chlorination. It is easy to install, requires almost no maintenance. The 10,000 gallon capacity is fine for average household needs. However, if you have a large house with multiple bathrooms, I think you should opt for a whole house water treatment system. Hope this review helps.
