Sprite Shower Filter Replacement Cartridge provides a full year's use. Shower Filter Replacement Cartridge - High Output by Sprite  Due to the development of Sprite's high temperature, catalytic filtration media, filtering chlorine from showers can now be addressed .  Carbon is an excellent filtration media when used under the right conditions, such as, in a point-of-use drinking filter.  However, carbon - drinking filters are designed to filter tap water under conditions that are much different than found with shower water. Of course, you don't shower in cold water and wouldn't use a 60 lb. shower filter.  And we wouldn't cut a carbon filter in half and expect it to adequately filter shower water.  Instead, Sprite invested a great amount of time and energy into developing a line of reliable and realistic catalytic shower filters that filter both free and combined chlorine(s), dirt, sediment, odors, hydrogen sulfide, iron oxide, and more, from your shower water.  When it comes to filtering shower water......."the choice is clear".

Technical Information  

**  The temperature of tap water ranges from 600 - 750 (F)
**   Showering Temperatures typically range from 850 - 1050 (F)
Carbon is a cold water filter.  It is most effective at temperature ranges of 500 - 800 (F).  At higher temperatures, carbon becomes ineffective.   It will "off-load" and release contaminants into the water.   Sprite's shower filtration media was designed for hot water, becoming more efficient as the water temperature increases.
**  The flow-rate of most drinking filters is less than 1/2 gallon per minute (GPM).
**   Shower water flows at a minimum of 2.5 GPM, (5x greater).
Even using cold water, a minimum of 5x the amount of carbon would be necessary to filter the shower water.
**  Most drinking filters produce 1-3 gallons per day (GPD).
**   Shower usage ranges from 12.5-50 GPD. (12x greater).
Even with cold water and a 5x larger carbon filter, the filter would have to be an additional 12x larger, or a total of 60x the size of the original tap water filter.
