Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Like it so far!
After just one use, I can tell the difference in my hair. I'm sure it will take longer to notice on my skin, but I'm hopeful! The only problem I encountered in the installation was a leak where the filter housing screws together. No matter how much it was tightened, loosened, or rearranged, it wouldn't stop leaking. Luckily, I had ordered a spare filter and decided to try it in the filter housing. Well, there must have been a slight difference in the size, because after I put the spare in, the housing screwed together much easier, and there wasn't a drop of water coming from anywhere it wasn't supposed to be coming from. Only thing is--now I'm out a spare filter!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Neko Just make sure you can screw this on correctly
I really like this filter's size and shape, but when you try to screw it onto the pipe and screw the faucet on, the plastic threads being screwed against metal threads get screwed up if you don't put it on exactly right. This is the second one I have purchased, and in both cases I have had water coming out of both areas where the plastic and metal are screwed together. The reason I purchased it a second time was because it suddenly had water spraying upwards. If you are confident you can install it completely straight, then I do recommend it. The size and shape are perfect for my shower. Some are too long.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skippa Rid of Hard h20
I purchased this shower filter b/c my tub & surround has been turning blue due to the hard h20. I wanted something that would remove the overload of chlorine from my shower h20. So far so good. I must say that I had to apply the tape (which comes w/the filter) to the shower head attachment before screwing the shower head into the filter. W/Out it - it leaks! I hope the filter is not too heavy for the bracket my shower head rests in. I'll post again if this becomes an issue. So far so good. I'm pleased w/the purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Olive It works better than some of the more expensive filters
I never write reviews, but I am pleased with this filter so far...especially for the price. This works as well as, or better than, more expensive filters that I have tried (and only seemed to work for a month or so, not the estimated 6 months). Hair and skin both feel softer. For better water pressure, I removed the black rubber flow meter from end that screws onto the pipe. Because of this, I don't expect the filter will last the full 6 months advertised, but I like added pressure. I figure even if this filter lasts three months, it is worth it since the filter replacements are not expensive. Will have to see if the replacement filters work as well as the one that comes with the unit. True that it does leak if you don't use plumber's tape but I have no leaks now that the tape is applied.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MMM2739 Problems with leaking
The filter worked fine for a couple of months and then it started leaking where the unit screws together. This morning it was spraying over the shower curtain and across the room! I unscrewed it to check the o-rings. I took the rings out to make sure there wasn't any debris and now they are WAY too big to fit back in - not sure what that's about. I just took it off so I could take my shower but could really smell the chlorine that had been filtered before the leak.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarySue Sprite Slim-Line Shower Filter
No more chlorine smell, no more chlorine dry skin itch! This is such a simple little gadget -- easy to install and simply unobtrusive in use. I've used one for a year, which means that I have already replaced the filter once (simple). This latest purchase was for my mother. She can already feel relief from her dry winter skin. Definitely worth the price!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cab1 I've had this product in the past and liked it very much
As soon as I installed it, it has leaked from the seam between the two parts. The last one did not do that. I need to take it apart and see what the problem is, but it should work correctly out of the package. I thought I ordered just the refill, but got the whole system instead. I would like to be able to just order the refill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmhbrickster Great product.
I had a different filter similar to this before I bought this one. This product is better and very well made. It seems to do just what it claims, removes chlorine. No more chlorine smell in my bathroom. It is also easy to install.
