Chlorine often irritates the eyes and lungs.
Universal Water KDF shower filter by CanPro uses the patented KDF
copper-zinc alloy (manufactured by
KDF Fluid Treatment, Inc.), in a specially designed
back-washable, replaceable cartridge. With this technology, our shower
filter has been shown to effectively remove 97+% of this damaging
chlorine for up to 12 months for two people. It has been tested by an
independent lab to ANSI/NSF 42-2000 Class I to 10,000 gallons (click
to see laboratory test results). KDF can also remove low amounts of
iron and sulphur and control the mold and mildew in your
is extremely well suited for shower water filtration with an operating
temperature range up to 212º. In fact, as water temperature increases,
the efficiency of the KDF increases. Carbon, used in some competitive
brands, is most effective in water temperatures between 50º and 80º,
and in fact can start to "off-load" trapped contaminants in hot water.
With the typical shower water temperature of 95º to 105º, it is easy to
see why KDF is the best media choice!
The special interior design of the filter causes the KDF to be
"swirled", enhancing contact with the water which improves efficiency.

A unique feature is the "Quick Flush" back-wash.
Simply twisting the cartridge to the "Flush" mark will reverse the flow

fail prematurely. A good example of this benefit is New York City,
where century-old pipes contribute to excessively high sediment levels.
