Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LoriB One of the best decisions I have ever made!
Due to a family emergency I recently had to move into a home that was NOT ready to move into. One of the problems was the INCREDIBLY hard well water. After much research I found the majority of water filters would not address the issue of hard water...then I found the Paragon shower filter system! I was desperate to find something to restore my skin and hair to a normal state and the Paragon system did not disappoint. It was beyond easy to install with simply a basic wrench and about 5 minutes of time. I am more than pleased with this product.

Are you having hair troubles? It might be hard water! Soon after I moved from my previous apartment, my hair slowly became oily, wouldn't lather & became brittle/thin. I tried everything: double shampooing, different shampoos, and even a clarifying shampoo. Nothing worked. This was my last resort - and it worked beautifully. The filter is a fantastic deal so I caved & bought it. It's easy to install (did it myself) and the water is so soft! My hair is back to being full, strong & shiny. It was the best decision- and such a steal at this price, too!! I bought 2 filter replacements at the same time & got free shipping! You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly The Paragon Water Filter does what it's supposed to do!
My water is so bad I can smell it! This filter not only removes the smell, but my hair stays blond.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY247 It works good
We have hard water and the Paragon filter works good. I didn't notice a huge change like if u had a water softener system but I have noticed my skin and hair are softer which was the purpose of getting the filter.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SqueegeeBeckenheim Didn't notice a difference
I moved to the Westside of Los Angeles about 6 months ago and since the move my hair has been feeling more dry and damaged at the tips and oily and limp at the roots. But every time I would go on vacation my hair was restored to it's beautiful bouncy shiny self. Therefore, I figured it was the hard water and chemicals in LA water, and decided to purchase this product based on reviews.
Pros: Easy to install. No tools needed. You attach your own showerhead to the filter so if you like your water pressure and flow, this is great!
Cons: Didn't notice much of a difference. If I washed my hair before replacement, and after replacement with my eyes closed, I don't think I would believe there was a difference.
Hence, I have returned the product and purchased another filter to try.
Too bad, I had high hopes for Paragon!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GaryM Shower Water Filter seems to work, little bulky, easy to install
Not bad...when installed, it offsets the nozzle a few inches. The off-white color may or may not go in your bathroom - they have a chrome option. The thing is a bit bulky - not exactly an eyesore but you can decide.
Installation is very easy takes a few minutes total. Filter cartridge is good for 6-9 months. When replacing filter, don't tighten the cartridge housing more than finger tight; housing is plastic and can break. There is a good sized rubber ring seal for the cartridge - just make sure it is seated propertly before tightening the housing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mauraea Easy, quick, perfect price!
I was looking for something to combat our hard water, which I've never measured but I can see the effects: poor lathering for soap, terrible water spots, clogged water appliances - you get the picture.
We're renting, so purchasing a water softener system was not an option. This shower attachment received excellent reviews - and it should.
It was quick to install, we haven't had any issues, and the price is great. Not sure how long the filter will last with our water quality - but with the replacements being so inexpensive, I'm not worried about it.
It should also be noted, because no one else commented (that I saw) that detectable shower heads work perfectly with this filter. It can be positioned to the side of the pipe so as not to interfere with a shower handle and it doesn't jut out - but rather back.
Excellent option for our situation.
