I live in an apartment — can I soften my shower’s water?


Yes — and it is probably less expensive than you might think. Many people know that water softener systems and water filtration systems exist for homes and houses, but some do not know about shower head water filters. Shower head water filters, much like the name implies, simply replaces your shower’s existing head with a new one that can work to soften your water, remove harsh chemicals like chlorine, or all of the above. Websites such as Amazon offer comparison shopping of shower water filters (compare shower head filters) — most of which will cost you less than $100.

If you are looking for an economical solution to a hard water problem, outside of the shower, that is, there are also portable water softeners available, which are slightly more expensive than a shower head water filter, but nonetheless something that will help you to soften your apartment’s water.

If you are looking to soften your drinking water, or at least make it safer, or easier, to drink — water filter pitchers are an inexpensive option for apartment dwellers.

  1. I had a terrible hard water problem in my appartment and I tried several different water filters, but really like the sprite high output chlorine filter. Plus, it was really cheap, less than $50.

    I didn’t know about water filters that you could place in your shower, and thankfully we found out about it as our apartment complex wouldn’t do anything about the nasty water.

    The hard water, stains, and smell that our water had made me feel icky after a shower, I was going mad. Thanks for your help.

  2. we tried a aquasana shower filter and its worked well so far. kind of expensive though.

  5. The best shower filter for appartments is the chrome culigan filters. It’s cheaper than the aquasana shower filters, the filters last for 5-6 months, and it got rid of the rotten egg smell in my water, and I feel better after a shower. I’m not very technically inclined, and I was able to install the shower head in less than 5 minutes.

    Here’s the culigan filter I bought: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006VVN1S/?tag=option6572-20

  6. Shower head water filters are a godsend for my apartment. my landlord won’t do anything about the nasty smelling water, so I have to drink and cook with bottled water, but the sprite showerhead filter I got works great to clean out some of the yuck from my water.

  7. My apartment complex uses unfiltered city water, and it’s terrible. Only after a week of moving in, my hair was flat, matted, and thick feeling. I found out the hard way that not all shower head water filters work well with hard water. Some specialize in the chlorine and chemical removal, but still left me feeling dirty. I tried the culligan shower filter, and despite a lot of good reviews, it didn’t work well for me.

    I decided to go more expensive, and I’ve had a jonathan product shower water beautification system for a couple of weeks, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it – my hair has started to return to normal.

    This looks like the one I purchased http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000PI13SU?ie=UTF8&tag=option6572-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000PI13SU
