Asked by david March 27, 2021

You can clean the filter housing, like the shower head or casing in hot soapy water, but not the replacement filter. The replacement filter should be replaced, cleaning them won't prolong the filter life.

How to install

Asked by Needaline November 27, 2020

Check out our website to watch a video. Spritewater.com > Knowledge Base > Instructions & Maintenance. Go to the hand held videos, bottom of the page. It's not the exact model you're asking about, but they are hooked up the exactly the same! Feel free to call Sprite Showers 1-800-327-9137 for further assistance.

Does this hook up easily to a wall shower? Need a line for movement

Asked by Needaline November 27, 2020

Very easy! The threads are standard / universal .5 inch NPT. No tools required, just a lot of twisting!

Are you able to replace to filter? If so after how months?And do you need a tape for it?

Asked by Mare August 6, 2020

Following are the answers to your questions in the order asked: 1) Yes, you are able to replace the filter... in theory! More on that below. 2) It really depends more on how many people are using it and how long their showers are. But, based on my observations, their 3 month estimate is only if one person is using it for about 20 minutes per day. If you're using it longer than that OR if more people are using it then you'll need to replace it sooner. 3) No, you don't need tape. But you do need a strong grip. It's quite difficult to twist open the hand shower, pull the old filter out, push the new one in until it's fully inserted, then twist the hand shower completely closed again. Most of the time my 40-something wife can't manage it despite the fact that I've seen her open many jars/bottles that other women (and even some men) couldn't open. So, if you don't have a VERY strong grip it can be a struggle to replace the filter.

Does this have flow options? Or does it just have one setting?

Asked by copay May 11, 2020

Just to clarify. It has SPRAY settings but it does not have FLOW options. In other words, you can adjust the spray pattern but you can't adjust the flow rate of the water to, for example, make it do more than the 2.5gpm maximum. In fact, you probably won't even get that unless you already have VERY strong water pressure because the filter is going to restrict the flow.

Has anyone tested their water afterwards? How much chlorine and minerals did it remove?

Asked by Jacky May 11, 2020

To clarify, don't expect it to remove minerals. I can tell you from experience that if you have hard water it's going to still be hard on the other side of the filter and you're still going to have to regularly remove mineral deposits from the shower head to prevent it clogging. As far as chlorine, I have actually had it tested. I will say I do believe it substantially reduces chlorine because my skin goes from itching without the filter to not itching with it. That being said, I am dubious of Sprite's claim that it's still filtering "75-50%" even when close to the replacement date. Also be aware of the important qualifying word Sprite used in saying "removes up to 99% of the free chlorine". Free is the important word there. If the chlorine molecule is freely flowing in the water (i.e. not affected by other nearby molecules) then it can be removed by the filtration media. In other words, you're likely never going to achieve 99% removal of ALL chlorine with this so don't expect to. Lastly, everything I've seen here talks specifically about chlorine removal. However, from my research, I've discovered that much municipal water treatment is now done with chloramine. And following is a quote of information I found regarding the filtration of chlorine vs chloramine: "Chloramine, on the other hand is much harder to filter, and most “big name” water filters are not designed to remove it." Therefore, before even buying this, you might want to ask your local water authority if they use chlorine or chloramine.

Does the filter reduce or eliminate Boron?

Asked by Francis November 10, 2019

Sprite Shower filters have not been tested on its effectiveness in removing Boron.

Repeat Quality Problems
I've had a couple of different models of these Sprite filtered handheld showers and BOTH had hose problems within a couple of years. In other words, beyond the meager 1 year warranty but far too soon for something that is supposed to be a quality name-brand product... not some cheapo no-name model that costs only ten or fifteen bucks. In fact, the other hose came on their high-end model which costs approximately sixty dollars. The included hoses are bottom of the barrel junk. Either the ultra-thin inner liner (that the water flows through) bursts AND/OR the outer metal braiding rusts. For something that is going to be constantly exposed to water, I would have expected them to use a marine-grade stainless steel that wouldn't rust. But, as you can see in the attached photo, rust is exactly what's happening on this merely 2 year old hose. Honestly, if they can't provide a decent stainless hose with a non-bursting liner then I'd rather them simply include one of those metallic-looking thick vinyl hoses instead. I had one of those on a 20 year old basic hand-shower at my old home that was still working perfectly when I moved. I'm sorry I have to post this negative review but, for models in the $30-60 range, they should include hoses which last more than just a couple years!

Really good shower head
I’m looking for a filter shower for my hair/skin and LOVE it. The water pressure is strong & I feel so clean after the shower. The price is really reasonable. HomeDepot usually gets quality items. Highly recommended !

Very easy to assemble. The best part is that there is no chlorine smell so the filter clearly works. My skin was feeling dry and I was breaking out. After one use of this filtered shower head my skin feels smooth like a salamander lol one thing my husband and me noticed is that the holder is very small. The handle isn’t wobbly or anything but it’d be cool if the filter looked more secure in the holder thing. Overall worthwhile though makes my shower feel like a rainfall. Nice water pressure too

Easy to assemble and the water flow is great. So far it’s been good. My sister and I both noticed a difference in our hair after washing, felt much softer.

Great Water Pressure
Looking for a shower with good water pressure, I purchased and returned several handheld showers and this has the best water pressure. The handheld is a bit heavy. However, if you remove the filter it's much lighter and easier to operate. I already have a fixed water filter (Aquasana) so I didn't need the one in the showerhead. This product is a keeper and is a good value.

This is my second one. The first one developed a crack in the arm that holds the wand. The bevel of the wand slowly wedged the arms of the neck apart just enough to drip (when on). I must have had the first one for awhile because the new one has a different design. What scares me is the "arms" that hold the wand have even less material than before. I'm hoping this one doesn't split. Otherwise - it's been great. The difference in water quality is very noticeable. The spray patterns are few but all I've ever needed/wanted. I especially like that the filter is "hidden" in the handle - just looks good that way.
