Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roni Awesome Filter
I was sent to Mobile, AL on a work assignment. The apartment had great water pressure, but the water was very chlorinated and dried out my skin, and left me itching all over. Our home in Orlando has a whole house water filtration system, so I needed something for at least the shower here. This filter is fantastic!! I broke the original piece that holds the shower head (by torquing it too tight) and had to buy another, but it installed easily, and I've had no problems since. There are rubber gaskets, and I used tape on the threads of the pipe coming out of the wall. No leaks, great pressure, and no more itchy skin. Love it!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alfordavenue Great product!
Well made product & easy to install. Could tell a difference in improvement in skin dryness a few days after initial using. Researched several products & this was best value. Cheaper than ordering directly from manufacturer. Filter replacement cartridges cost about one half of other brands price. Unit is much lighter than many other filters.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TCons05 This product is a great shower water filter.
I had owned a similar shower head from Sprite for the last nine years. Home Depot is one of the few places stocking a comparable model from the same manufacturer, so I ordered that one. The design is ingenious, in that the filter sits within the arm of the shower attachment, which gives the unit a slim and streamlined design that is attractive and also makes for easy cleaning. It installs easily onto most standard wall mounted shower arms. The filter works effectively to minimize all chlorine particles, with minimal "drag" on flow, and is easily replaced. The difference in water quality is immediately apparent, and lasts for almost the entire life of the average filter. The five setting variations in the shower head provide a good array of sprays. The chrome finish looks smart in almost any decor. If this shower head is as durable as the previous one from Sprite, I'll be a dedicated customer for as long as the company persists.

We got the shower head a few months ago when we were looking at water filters. It has good preasure and helps with hard water issues we have. The problem that we have is the angle of the shower head makes is spray sideways instead of down and the shower head will not adjust down enough for a stand up shower, in a tub it would be fine. The holder ring and connector has cracked causing the entire head to fall off. If they had a shorter head or a better angle on it this product would be great.

My only qualms about this shower filter have to do with its being rather thin plastic and perhaps cracking after a while. Our last one did, although it gave us years of service. (This one does have a metal hose, which is a good length.) Otherwise, we're very pleased. It's easier to change from one shower type to another than on some shower nozzles, no twisting a slippery disc. And a good amount of forcefulness to rinse one's hair.

having well water often it is hard to rinse the shampoo from my hair. With the filter, hair feels cleaner. Still some residue, however improved!

I'm very happy with my shower filter! It was simple to install and has made a huge difference in my water. Chlorine not only makes my skin dry and itchy, it also strips the color from my hair, making dye-jobs not last very long. I've noticed a HUGE difference in both. It's the next best thing to having a whole-house filter, which is impossible in my apartment.

I ordered this product first from Amazon, but I noticed the photos of the various Sprite products didn't always line up with the reviews or descriptions. I'd read that the plastic hose smells really badly, so I ordered the more expensive chrome hose (according to the photo and description), but a white one arrived, smelly as reported. When I returned it and ordered from Home Depot instead, I got exactly what I ordered: no fuss, no trouble, and at a good price! I like the product very much.
Comparison: Aquasana reportedly gets a few more items out of the water for you, but it had squirty leaks in several places within months of owning it, and for the price difference, we've decided to try Sprite this time. We'll just have to mess with the filter more often (Every month you have to reverse the filter to rinse it out, and get a new one every 3rd month), whereas with Aquasana you just had to change the filter out once a year. In other Sprite reviews I've read that the plastic C ring that holds the showerhead can break, but one reviewer said you can pick up another one from Home Depot, so I may pick one up to have it on hand in case that happens. So far, our new Sprite Filtered Showerhead has been wonderful.
