Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Vitashower filtering media? 100% Pharmaceutical Grade Vitamin C. 100% Organic, as natural as it can get.

How does Vitashower remove chlorine and chloramines from water?
Vitashower utilizes ascorbic acid (vitamin C) chemistry for dechlorination. Vitamin C does not hold the chlorine; it turns free chlorine and chlorine by-products into a harmless compound.

Is there scientific evidence that Vitamin C can be used in dechlorination?
Yes. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Risk Management Research Laboratory demonstrated that Vitamin C is a safe and fast dechlorination agent. Click Research for detailed information.

How much Vitamin C is in the Vitashower filter?
There are 250 grams of Vitamin C in each Vitashower cartridge. One gram of Vitamin C will neutralize 1 ppm (part per million) chlorine in 100 gallons of water.

What is the advantage of Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is the safest and healthiest dechlorination process. It not only fully neutralizes both chlorine and chloramines but also provide additional nutrients for skin and hair.

Has Vitamin C ever been used in dechlorination?
Yes. Vitamin C dechlorination has a lengthy history. It has been used in EPA and APHA methods for the dechlorination of lab samples. In the medical industry, it is the standard for critical applications such as dialysis, where the introduction of chlorinated water or toxic chemical would be catastrophic.

Does Vitashower filter require maintenance?
No. Vitashower does not need any maintenance. You screw it in once and then enjoy chlorine-free showers.

Do I have to back flush the Vitashower filter? No.

How long will the Vitashower last and how much water will it filter?
A Vitashower shower filter will last for approximately about 15,000 Gallons (57,000 litres) of water. This is generally about one year, but can be 6 months in a larger family (about 300-400% longer than a KDF shower filter). Temperature and pressure of the water have no effect on lifetime.

Does the Vitashower filter reduce the flow rate?
No noticeable change of flow rate is found after the Vitashower filter is installed.

Does the performance of Vitashower depend on water temperature or pressure?
No. The Vitashower works for any water temperature (hot or cold), any water pressure (high or low) and any quality of water as long as the ordinary shower head works.

Can I use my own shower head with the Vitashower filter? Yes, you use your own showerhead.

Is the Vitashower filter easy to install? Yes, simply screw the filter inlet onto your existing shower arm.

What is the warranty on the shower head water filter?
There is a one year warranty on the filter body and 90 days on the filter cartridge.

Can I use Vitabath tablets for the dechlorination of my fish tank?
Yes. They are safe and effective for dechlorination of fish tanks. One tablet is capable of neutralizing 100 Gallons of water.
