Features

Effective filtration of chlorine

One of the most common components which can be found in water is chlorine. Although it is used by utility companies to your water supply to kill bacteria, it could also cause numerous problems.

Chlorine causes dryness and flaky skin, brittle, damaged hair, and inexplicable fatigue.

Moreover, prolonged exposure to chlorinated water could even then lead to respiratory illness, skin disorders such as acne, and other serious health risks.

The Aqua Bliss High Output Universal Shower effectively reduces chlorine from the water which might be absorbed by your skin.

Multi-stage filtration system

To make filtration more effective, the SF 220 was designed with three different filtration components.

KDF 55

Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF) media is a high-purity alloy of both copper and zinc. It is a chemical compound used in water filtration applications. Commonly, KDF is used along with Activated Carbon to maximize the efficiency of filters.

Activated Carbon

A commonly used component in filters, Activated Carbon uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities. 

This is done by merely using chemical adsorption. In this process, each particle or granule of carbon provides a large surface area or pore structure.

In effect, this allows contaminants the maximum possible exposure to the active sites within the filter media.

Calcium Sulfite

A chemical compound, Calcium Sulfite is said to be 100 times more effective than Activated Carbon at removing chlorine.

It is also more effective in reducing components in water that are heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and aluminum.

Filters both hot and cold showers

Effective in filtering both hot and cold waters, you don’t have to worry a lot when you are using the SF 220. 

This product uses a proprietary mix of KDF-55, Active Carbon, as well as Calcium Sulfite to filter the water.

KDF-55 works individually well in purifying the water at the set on higher temperatures.

On the other hand, Activated Carbon charcoal removes chlorine and other impurities which thrive in lower water temperatures.

To top it all, Calcium Sulfite is exceptionally effective at removing chlorine in both hot and cold temperatures.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

AquaBliss High Output Universal Shower Replaceable Multi Stage Filter Cartridge-Chrome (SF220), 1 Pack

What is the difference between the SF220 & SF100?

The SF220 is a heavy duty shower filter that is designed to remove the impurities from your water fast and extremely useful. On the other hand, the SF100 also transfers a high level of contaminants from the water.

However, to top it all, the SF 100 also infuses the water with beneficial minerals, and vitamin C. Vitamin C helps rejuvenate and revitalize damaged skin, hair, and nails.

Can the Aqua Bliss High Output Universal Shower Filter remove Chloramine?

Chloramine is a different kind of substance made from Chlorine and Ammonia. It reacts differently as compared to Chlorine.

While this product is able to remove Chlorine, it does not remove Chloramine.

In case your primary source of water at home has high levels of chloramine, it may be advisable instead to use a whole-house filtration system or a similar dedicated chloramine filter.

How often should filter cartridges be replaced?

Replacement and maintenance depend on the usage of each homeowner. However, usually, the cartridge can be replaced after 10,000 – 12,000 gallons of water consumption.

For an easy estimate, this is almost six (6) months of usage. In replacing cartridges more often, you also ensure the maximum performance of your shower strainer.

Can I use a TDS meter to test the water quality?

Total dissolved solids (aka TDS) meter measures the conductivity of the water. This tool can help identify salts or other impurities which have positive charges.

However, those common disinfection by-products in water, such as chlorine, iron, chloramine, etc, do not have an impact on the conductivity of the water.

For this reason, these impurities would not be picked up by a TDS meter.

With this, for measuring general water quality, a TDS meter may not be very helpful. Because of this, it would be better to use more specialized tests to test for specific chemicals or metals. This includes a chlorine colorimeter.

Wrap Up

The Aqua Bliss High Output Universal Shower Filter is a unique tool which has been proven to be effective in reducing impurities in your water. This has been made possible through its three-stage design of filtration.

It uses KDF 55, Activated Carbon, and Calcium Sulfite. Because of this, you are undoubtedly protected from all the types of harmful contaminants which may affect your skin and cause different diseases.
