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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Pressure of water has reduced
I had a lot of hair fall. One of my friends suggested to get shower filter. Its been 10 days I started using this. Can't expect the results so early.
Was a good fit to my shower head. A little leaks even after applying the tape which may be because I didn't do it correct.
But the pressure of water has reduced which is the only drawback I see till now. If it gives the desired results then we can tolerate with this drawback. Have to wait and see.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michalle Does what it promises
Easy to install and you can use what ever shower head you want. Filters out hard minerals, my hair feels so much better now and my shower stays much cleaner.
*FYI, the first time you run water through this filter do it with a bucket under the shower head, there is some black filter residue that will come out for about 3 minutes or so, then your good to go.

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.
