Ever since I heard Dr. Oz on Oprah talking about how important it was to use a charcoal filter in your shower head, I have been trying to find one. Dr. Oz said that you could find a charcoal filter anywhere, but he didn’t mention any stores by name.
Whether you are trying to find a new shower head with a charcoal filter built in or a charcoal filter for your existing shower head, there are a number of brands out there from which you can choose. Two of the popular brands of charcoal shower filters are Culligan and Sprite – both are available online as well as at a number of home supply stores. I have listed information and links below that may help you in your search for the right charcoal shower filter for you.
If you decide to buy a charcoal shower filter, you need to remember to change the filter every so many months (as specified by the manufacturer). So keep in mind that you will incur an additional charge for the filter. The problem that I have encountered is that I seem to forget when I put the new filter in, so I have no idea when I should replace it. I tried putting a reminder on my calendar, but that didn’t seem to help much. What I ended up doing was buying my new filter through Amazon’s Subscribe & Save Program. I set the preferences to ship me a new filter every 6 months, that way, I know when the new filter arrives, I have to change it.
