What is the Zazen shower filter?
The Zazen shower filter is designed to remove and reduce impurities from your shower water. It will create a healthier showering environment, reducing chemical exposure absorbed by the skin and lungs.
Pictured above is the Raindrop shower head, which is the one I purchased.
What does the shower filter remove
The Zazen Shower Filter:
- reduces 99% of chlorine and dangerous vapours;
- reduces 99% of water soluble lead, mercury, nickel, chromium, copper;
- controls algae, bacteria, fungus, mould, parasites, viruses, and other pathogens;
- and removes iron oxides (orange discolouration and smell) and sulphide (sulphur smells).
Zazen shower filter range
Zazen have a range of shower filters to suit your individual bathroom, including a raindrop shower filter, handset shower filter, and a streamline shower filter.
These filters will fit most Australian and New Zealand standard fittings.
The Zazen Shower Filter Range meets the 3 Star Rating at 9 litres per minute.
The filter is contained within the shower head. It is easily installed into your shower head, taking only a couple of minutes.
The raindrop and hand held filters need replacing every 12 months, whist the streamline style only needs replacing every 24 months. Replacement filters cost $49.95 for the raindrop and hand held, and $99.95 for the streamline.
Depending on your filter head, each shower will ONLY cost you between 3 and 5 Australian cents!
There are many health benefits to filtering your shower water, but in addition, I have found it to significantly reduce soap scum and calcium build up in the shower. We only need to clean our shower on an ad-hoc basis, rather than once a week!
Whenever I travel, I really notice the difference in showering in unfiltered water, as I can instantly smell the chlorine. My skin feels “softer” when I use the Zazen filter, as I can feel dryness of “squeaky clean” when showering in chlorinated water.
The initial cost of the raindrop system is $200. This includes a ready to install with showerhead, shower arm & mounting bracket. Very highly recommended!
