Earlier this year we got a report on the quality of the water in our area. Now, we're pretty lucky to live in an area where the water isn't too terrible but, I know we aren't alone in the growing number of people who are really becoming aware of the quality of the water being pumped into our homes. Most people I know have made the switch to some kind of filtering system on their drinking water. We personally use a filtered pitcher for our drinking water. The thing is, our drinking water is not the only water we are using. Ultimately, our goal is to have a filtering system on our entire house's water supply. For now, we have luckily been able to add an Aquasana Water Filter to one of our showers and we are loving the results.

As seen on the Dr. Oz show, the Aquasana Shower Filter removes chlorine and enhances pH balance with a natural copper/zinc mineral called KDF-55D. It then uses a filtration that removes synthetic chemicals through carbonized coconut shell medium. The two-stage filter process is a unique filtration that gives you the healthiest shower possible.

Jonathan Antin, Celebrity Hair Stylist and host of reality show "Blow Out" says that the Aquasana Shower Filter is "like showering in natural spring water!".

In addition to the amazing filtered water benefits, the Aquasana Shower Filter installs easily and the filter cartridges only need to be replaced every 6 months. The shower head has an awesome adjustable pressure feature that is great for a relaxing shower.

My thoughts on using this shower head? I was instantly blown away. The second I started showering under the Aquasana filter, I could tell a difference. My shampoo rinsed out easier, my soap washed off cleaner without a feeling of residue and when I was done, my skin didn't feel dry. Normally when I get out of the shower, the first thing I have to do is put on lotion. I couldn't believe it that first day because the thought of lotion honestly didn't cross my mind. My skin didn't feel deprived of it's natural oils but, still felt clean. My hair is better now too. My shampoo and conditioner rinses out completely but, my hair isn't as dry as it used to be. It's softer and healthier now that the cholrine has been removed from my water.

My husband and I both are huge fans of this shower filter from Aquasana. We actually use the shower to fill up the bathtub for the kids' baths now because we know how much better the water is through the filter. We both highly recommend the Aquasana products and give the shower filter two big thumbs up.

Aquasana has other filters avaialable as well. We really wanted their countertop water filter and another filter for the other shower but, because of other sinks and using water outdoors as well, we are definitely going to go straight for the whole house system. To me, Aquasana's price on that large of a filter is better than others I've seen, we already know their products are fantastic and it's a cost that we are willing to spend for peace of mind that all the water in our home is so much safer for us, our kids and our pets.

After using the shower filter, it's easy for me to see why Aquasana is the #1 rated home water filtration system in America and it makes me really happy to support such a great business that is locally based here in my home state of Texas. Buying from Aquasana is not only a healthy choice for my family but, it's also a great choice for buying an American made product that's also good for the environment. By using a sink or house water filter and eliminating the need for bottled water, we can all help prevent more plastic containers from ending up in the landfills. I recommend Aquasana to everyone I know for so very many different reasons.
