Answer: 
You should have everything you need in the box. Just screw it on the pipe and the shower head on the end of the filter and you are ready to go.

Answer: 
possibly Teflon tape to wrap around the thread on the pipe. Mine ended up being leak free without it but your experience may vary.
it doesn't come with a shower head but the end you connect the head to is standard. If your plumbing is standard...ie if the filter screws onto the pipe with out an adapter the head you used to use will screw onto the filter just fine.

Answer: 
No to remove fluoride you need to use one of the following:
activated alumina
reverse osmosis
distillation
bone char
The good news is fluoride isnt absorbed through the skin very well and will not vaporize as easily as chlorine so you dont need to worry much about it in your bath/shower water. I cant confirm this these last 2 lines scientifically but I do know i've came a crossed this several times Read More

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 64 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A very good buy What I like about this shower filter is that it has replaceable filter cartridges that are a good value. Also, the shower neck in our house is a little low and this filter raises the shower head a few inches up for me. But, I would recommend that you remove it from the shower neck when you change the filter cartridge. I broke one trying to change the cartridge while it was still installed. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used before, excellent, why not available in store? This product Is wonderful! We have use this shower filter before and it works very well in the hot desert of Arizona. The water here is so hard. It's hard on your body and your hair. I would recommend this shower filter to anyone who wants to have that her water. We had one before. Only sorry it was not available in the store across the street. We had to order it online. It is easy to put on. A small convenient size. Everything about it is just perfect. I would use it again and have recommended it to my friends. March 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great Performance, Poor Quality the shower filter works great. However, about every 18months, the housing fails and you have to buy the whole assembly. Its happened 3 times to me now. Might be looking to find something that lasts longer.!! July 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Performs ok but can break easily First one broke..... Is all plastic and is weak at holder do be careful installing March 4, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Reduces water output greatly I bought this since my hair had been getting sticky feeling, despite using many different types of clarifying and pH balancing shampoos. Multiple hairdressers recommended getting a shower filter, so I immediately headed to Home Depot. There were two options available, so I chose GE since it was cheaper. At first it worked pretty well since my hair stopped having the sticky problem, but then after a couple months it suddenly caused my water output to decrease DRAMATICALLY. It's literally been like showering under my sink faucet (just a small trickle of water). I thought it was a problem with my apartment's water pressure or water output, but I tested my roommate's shower and hers was completely fine. I finally took off the GE shower filter, and sure enough that was the problem. Without the filter, my shower went back to its normal amount of water output. I'm not sure why the filter would do this, but unless you want to be showering under a small trickle of water you should probably try a different product. March 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes wonderful chlorine free showers. I am on my second filter -the first one broke after 5 years-! There are a few reviews that mention difficulty in replacing the filter-the trick is to mark on the cap, at the initial installation, which way to turn the cover to open it up. Then it is free sailing. Great price and works like a charm. May 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm very happy with this product I've been using this product for 2 years, and I feel the quality, efficiency and ease of use is excellent!!!! Thank you so much! November 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shower filter Does a great job in removing the chlorine and hard minerals from our water. Makes a huge difference on how your skin and hair feel after a shower. Skin feels soft and not dried out and hair is not weighed down from all the chlorine and minerals. Love it October 15, 2015
