Premium Shower Filter System
It made such a difference! =)
Immediately after putting this in my shower, I noticed that my skin is softer, less irritated, and not dried out. The water smelled and tasted cleaner too (a lot less like chlorine). My hair became a little softer and didn't need conditioner everyday. It lasted me and my hubby almost a year and a half before the water started to smell and taste like chlorine again- and I like taking long showers too. I plan on buying repeatedly in the future.

Very noticable difference with this filter. Skin is much less dry and I think my hair is too. Now have peace of mind that no chlorine is seeping into our skin. Price on Swansens is of course, wonderful. Worth it!

I am using the same review I have had on Amazon for years, and the same for the replacement cartridge...
I've been using this filter system for well over TWENTY-FIVE YEARS. Need I say more? OK, I will. My hair and skin are awesome. My peers use conditioner on their hair... me? rarely. And, I usually have long hair. (fine, blonde) I can go a month or more without using lotion on my skin as long as I am getting enough EFA's from my food. I have used this system in Washington, D.C.; Arlington, VA; Los Angeles, CA; and now in Salem, OR. The latter two have very hard water. Until I have great well water I'll keep using it. And even then if the water is really hard I may still. I really notice the difference when I visit family back East as they don't have this in their shower. Depending on the area where you live, will dictate how often you need to change the filter. In LA, every 8 months, Salem, every year.
PS The housing* that holds the cartridge is just starting to look like it is going to split vertically at the threads that connect to the water inlet pipe do-hicky. I noticed that the last filter change I did. Hows that for value on the dollar, easy-ish on the Environment etc? It will be interesting to see how much longer I can get out of the housing before the plastic just shatters.
*The housing is still going strong, after a filter change. The original review was a couple of years ago....
ps, the price here? For both the system and the replacement cartridge? AWESOME!
