Better Quality Water for Your Entire House
If you are doing everything right in your beauty routine and still dealing with dry skin and crunchy hair, then probably you’re dealing with hard water. The hardness or softness of your home’s water can impact your shower experience. That’s because the mineral buildup in hard water can make it difficult to create a sudsy lather when shampooing and conditioning your hair, so if you notice insufficient lather when you mix shampoo and water, you’re likely dealing with hard water.
Excessive hardness can also lead to limescale buildup on appliances like showers and kettles which reduces their lifespan and shoots up energy bills.
For long-lasting and continual results, installing a water softener is the way to go. Not only does it improve your showering experience but you can also improve your overall life with the benefits of soft water. A water softener will improve your hair & skin, remove limescale from the house, save you almost €600 every year and also increase the lifespan of appliances.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are many reasons to filter your shower water. Here are our top 3.
- A shower filter will remove chlorine, THMs, and reduce the hardness levels to an extent.
- Your hair, scalp, and skin will benefit from chlorine-free water. Chlorine leads to dry skins, dry hair, and dry scalp.
- Skin is the largest organ of the body and since it is porous, it absorbs whatever you put on it. Your body will absorb more chlorine through your skin than by drinking a glass of tap water. Also, that long hot shower that you love equals steam inhaled into your lungs containing chlorine and disinfectant by-products.
CWS Filtro Ducha Shower Filter is recommended by many hairdressers as it negates the whitewashing of hair colour.
CWS Filtro Ducha Shower Filter is primarily designed to reduce chlorine. It uses KDF-55 media that reduces chlorine, water-soluble heavy metals, THMs and scale.
KDF-55 is a carbon-based copper-zinc formula designed to remove chlorine and heavy metals. The copper and zinc in the media protect the carbon at high temperatures while the carbon is used to remove chlorine from the water.
The process medium received NSF International Certification and is certified by NSF to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 – Drinking Water Treatment Units – Aesthetic Effects.
This is one of the most common questions we get asked.
The shower filter will not soften water in the way a water softener does, but it will remove chlorine and other chemical contaminants, making the water much less harsh and leaving your skin and hair feeling significantly softer.
Shower filters are manufactured to maintain normal household water pressure and have no effect on your showerhead’s flow
Shower filters usually retain water pressure and have a rating for a specific pressure range (generally between 20-100 psi).
With a pressure of 40-80 psi, most shower filters can effectively filter water without reducing the water pressure. If your shower already has a pressure lower than 40 psi before installing a shower filter, likely, your shower will further lose pressure when you fix a shower filter.
Cartridges last usually 6 months, depending upon usage and the quality of the water in your area. Our replacement cartridges are sold as twin pack, so a refill pack will last between 6 - 12 months.
Changing cartridges is simple and anyone can do it DIY.
Yes, CWS Filtro Ducha Shower Filter comes with a cartridge already installed.
Most showers in Ireland conform to a thread size of 1/2 inch BSP (British Standard Pipe).
So it's pretty much certain that our shower filters will fit your shower.
