This thing is awesome!!! i am 50 years old and have psoriasis and eczema. Taking a shower is torture--I have tried every soap and lotion out there to no avail. I bought this Berkey Shower Filter and guess what? I love showers! No burn. No itch. No torture!!!!
I love my Berkey Light for drinking and cooking-the insides of my stainless steel pots and even teapot are no longer tan stained. The water from it was used to spritz my hair one day which resulted in much less tangles, softer easier to handle, non-breaking hair so I decided to buy a shower filter also. BERKEY is something everyone should try to gain your healthy body inside and out.
I do notice way less crud and crust to clean in the tub. I also really prefer to get out of the shower and not smell like I had been in a swimming pool. I am going to buy their drinking water filter as well.
The Berkey Shower filter is excellent. No more dry skin.This shower filter allows your skin to maintain its healthy oils and keep the scum off the shower walls. Thank you!
MTA has exceptional customer service and ships quickly.
We live in San Diego, (water isn't that great here) & my dad bought me the Berkey Light (drinking water) for my birthday... I also received the Berkey shower filter. I had no idea a shower could make my skin so smooth. I can't say enough about how smooth my skin feels and how totally rinsed I am with this filter. My daughter has long blond hair (to her waist) and has always had to use conditioner (& a brush in the shower) or her hair would take hours to untangle. Not true with the Berkey shower filter... there is no build up of 'stuff' on her hair and she has the most beautiful skin now. No clogged pores or blackheads at all. This filter is amazing! There is no better filter than the Berkey - for showers or drinking.
My husband thought I was crazy for wanting this for my birthday but he actually told me after less than a week of using both the drinking water and the shower head that he was totally wrong and it is the best water he has ever tasted or showered in. My dad is buying him a shower head for his birthday now - since no one wants to shower in the bathroom without the Berkey shower head. Oh - and my shower walls/knobs stay clean - no water, calcium or lime spots. I LOVE IT!!! You will too!

Why should this not be used with a shut off valve? Most people want a shut off valve on all water outlets in the home in case of leaks.

If possible do not use the Berkey Shower Filter unit with a shut-off valve. If a shut-off valve is absolutely necessary, please make sure it is installed inline above and before the Berkey Shower Filter unit. Use of a shut-off valve after the Berkey Shower Filter unit may result in excessive pressure buildup inside the Berkey Shower Filter unit causing the filter to be damaged and voiding your warranty. For more information on the proper installation of a shut-off valve, please contact us.
