|KDF SHOWER FILTER With KDF-55
The KDF Shower Filter will
typically last 10,000 gallons or
one year whichever comes first.
The shower filter contains KDF 55
granules, which are most
effective in removing or reducing
chlorine, hydrogen sulfide,
microorganisms, scale and water-
soluble heavy metals such as
lead, mercury, and iron. KDF
process media also kill bacteria
and inhibit the growth of
bacteria, algae, and fungi. As an
added benefit, KDF media reduce
lime scale, mold, and fungi in
your shower. KDF process media
are completely safe so the
process is not toxic and does not
cause any adverse side effects.
In the shower environment, chlorine can either be in liquid or gas state. At higher water
temperatures in the enclosed shower stall, free-chlorine moves from the liquid to the gas state,
where it vaporizes and subsequently is inhaled. The United States regulates all showerhead flow
at 2.5 gallons per minute. Thus, the science behind shower filtration must take into account the
unique situation in the shower, including temperature, flow rate and volume.
Our KDF Shower Filter works on a similar principle to a Catalytic Converter in an automobile. In
shower filtration free-chlorine is converted into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this
chemical reaction is known as "Reduction-Oxidation", commonly referred to as Redox. Redox
reactions can be chemically complex. Simply stated, during a Redox reaction electrons are
transferred between molecules, creating new elements. For instance, when free-chlorine comes in
contact with the filtration media, it is changed into a benign, water-soluble chloride. This reaction
changes free-chlorine to a larger chloride element, too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the
skin. It is then carried harmlessly through the water supply. Hospitals, restaurants, municipal water
treatment facilities, and homes rely on KDF process media to safely reduce or remove free
chlorine, iron, iron oxides, heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide and bacteria from their water.
KDF process media are high-purity copper-zinc formulations used in treatment applications to
reduce heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide, microorganisms, and scale. Water filtered through redox
media controls microorganism growth. Treating water reduces bacteria and other
microorganisms by electron transport, causing cellular damage. KDF process media also kill
bacteria by direct electrochemical contact and by the flash formation hydroxyl radicals and
hydrogen peroxide, both of which interfere with a microorganism's ability to function. High-purity
copper-zinc redox media consistently remove 99% of free chlorine by electrochemically reducing
dissolved chlorine gas to water-soluble chloride ions.
Redox media remove up to 98% of water-soluble cations (positively-charged ions) of lead,
mercury, copper, nickel, chromium, and other dissolved metals. When filtered through KDF
media, soluble lead cations are reduced to insoluble lead atoms, which are electroplated onto the
surface of the media. All forms of KDF media are guaranteed for product purity, and a certified
analytical sheet accompanies each manufacturing run. KDF media also meet EPA and Food and
Drug Administration standards for maximum limits of zinc and copper in potable water.
