Shower Filter

Hi guys  

I was wondering if anyone had any stories about installing a shower filter? We're thinking of putting one in our bathroom but don't know if we should DIY or get someone to do it.

Re: Shower Filter

Hi @innyinny,

 

I had to Google shower filter as I had no idea what it was. What's in your water that you want to filter out? I imagine getting a plumber is the best bet - DIY plumbing can be a disaster.

G'day innyinny
This will be the shortet post that I've made, please ring the lovely people at PSIfilters on 1800-305-579, I guarantee you won't regret it. Their inventory is massive, so don't waste your time trying to nut out what you want/need on-line, they'll have an honest answer in a snap. They're genuinely out to please, their prices are extremely competitive, all items are quality (no knock-offs), & shipping is lightning fast.
We've dealt with them several times, & been over the moon with everything that we've bought from them.

Sorry for not seeing your reply until now, but PSI Filters are amazing, they have plenty of options from individual outlets that can be chosen to cover individual needs, to whole of house systems.

If your main concern is Chlorine & Fluoride, it will be easily dealt with.

Give them a call for sure, tell them what concerns you, & they'll put you on track for the best way to go about it.

They're super qualified & honest, you can't go wrong.

G'day Janina

All good, I only realised that my post got through this morning, I thought I'd lost it last night when I accidentally refreshed the page. I asked Jason for help on Auto Retrieve, & got his answer this morning, only to find that the message had gone through successfully anyway. I try my best, but I'm easily confused, so there's no need for you to feel alone about being silly. ; )

The other thing I didn't mention about PSIFilters, is that they recommend what's best for you, & not what's best for them.

Good luck

John

G'day Janina

 

I looked up the PSI Filter site yesterday morning to check on Fluoride removal, & the best option is Reverse Osmosis, but, they don't have the flow rate capacity for whole of house purposes. If Fluoride in drinking water is your main concern, then an undersink Reverse Osmosis installation where needed, would fix that for you.

 

As for the Chlorinated water, their standard Whole of House systems will deal with that, & your garden will thank you for fitting it.

 

Hope this helps, because I've had a couple of brain fade days while trying to help.

 

Best wishes & good luck

Re: Shower Filter

Thanks Andy_Mann,

I have had a few brain dead days this week.

 

Had a FBook friend from Malaysia visit with 3 friends,  and they had a whale of a time in the country,  and then took me back to Melbourne while they shopped till they dropped.

 

Unfortunately it was me that was worn out,  though I had a fabulous time,  They shopped but didnt drop,  I on the other hand  remember why I HATE shopping so much.

 

Still it was a good week and they returned to Malyasia this morning and I came home and slept the avo away,  Needless to say I had hundreds of emails to go through.

 

LOLl

 

Re Filter,  I do need the Fluoride gone as well as Chlorine.... not just for drinking, but bathing etc,,,  I can tell when there is too much it affect my lungs, eyes hair etc...  Doesnt help to have 2 inherited autoimmune conditions....  Usually it not bad,  but  Some days the smell and tast is disgusting [Chlorine]   We usually try to remove some buy have glass containers in sun  but that doesnt deal with the so called Fluoride...

 

I meant to ring them but got sidetracked  having and extra good time...  So will have to get into it next week.

 

I will love it,  and my garden should as well....

 

Thanks for taking the time to let me know

 

Blessings and have a great weekend

 

Janina

 

Do the Fluoride ones come for single taps???
