WaterChef® Premium Shower Filtration

Performance & Luxury in the Palm of Your Hand

Feel the WaterChef Difference!

Cut Out Excess Shower Chlorine

Chances are you're being exposed to more chlorine that you are aware of. Many municipal water treatment facilities use chlorine to disinfect our water supplies from bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms. However, once chlorine has done this job it is no longer needed or desired.

In a warm shower, chlorine is absorbed by our skin and hair, stripping away natural oils and proteins, while chlorinated vapors are inhaled.

Superior Chlorine Reduction - Feel the Difference Immediately!

advanced ThermalGuard carbonStart breathing a little easier by taking your health and beauty into your own hands. The WaterChef Premium Shower Filter System utilizes our advanced ThermalGuard™ catalytic carbon technology to substantially reduce your exposure to chlorine, leaving your body's natural oils and proteins intact. This results in immediate cosmetic benefits including softer and more manageable hair, healthier and smoother skin, and reduced eye irritation.

Additionally, you may notice that you use less soap and conditioner, and if you use hair color products, you may experience longer-lasting color between treatments. Quite simply, the WaterChef Premium Shower Filter is your key to feeling rejuvenated!

Premium Shower Filtration - Less Cost per Shower!

easy change filter cartridgeOur advanced ThermalGuard™ catalytic carbon has been specially formulated to work well over a wide variety of temperature ranges, including hot water.

Unlike competitive brand filters that still use KDF media, advanced Thermalguard™ delivers superior performance while keeping the cost of replacement cartridges very economical. In fact, a single WaterChef shower filter cartridge is often less than half the price of competitive brands!

Quality Stainless Steel Shower Hose - Odorless and PVC-Free!

WaterChef shower hoses feature quality, interlocking stainless steel construction (with metal fittings) to provide maximum flexibility and durability without any of the kinking or foul "plastic odor" associated with less expensive plastic hoses (commonly used by competing brands) – even at high temperatures!

Additionally, unlike many metal shower hoses that contain an inner hose liner made from PVC, WaterChef Shower Systems use an inner hose liner that is constructed from non-toxic and odorless silicone.

WQA Gold Seal Certified: NSF/ANSI Standard 177 – Trusted Performance

WQA Gold SealSadly, the water filtration industry is riddled with unvalidated and exaggerated performance claims. Rest assured knowing that WaterChef has invested in independent NSF/ANSI testing and certification by one of the water filtration industry's leading authorities, the Water Quality Association (WQA).

Requiring the strictest of compliance standards, WQA is valued by consumers, manufacturers, retailers and regulatory agencies worldwide. Trust is what independent NSF/ANSI certification is all about.

WaterChef SF-7C Shower Filter Systems have been independently tested and certified by WQA to conform to NSF/ANSI Standard 177 for chlorine reduction (Standard 177 is the only NSF/ANSI Standard that exists for shower filtration.)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does the WaterChef SF-7C shower filter reduce more than Chlorine?

A: Our industry has only developed one standard for shower filters: NSF/ANSI Standard 177, which measures the reduction of free available chlorine. (Free available chlorine is the concentration of residual chlorine present as dissolved gas, hypochlorous acid or hypochlorite ion, not combined with ammonia or other compounds that are less readily available for disinfection).

While ThermalGuard catalytic carbon has the ability to reduce more than just free available chlorine, as a matter of company policy, we only publish reduction claims that have been based upon testing our products against established industry standards that have been conducted by a widely recognized, third-party laboratory such as WQA (the Water Quality Association). We recognize this may appear to put WaterChef shower filters at a disadvantage because of performance claims made by competitive products. However, we are not comfortable with making claims that do not fit these strict criteria.

Q: Does WaterChef use any materials that may be deemed to be toxic such as BPA?

A: NO. All of the materials used to produce WaterChef shower filters have been carefully selected by our engineering team during the design phase. As a further precaution, WaterChef shower filters have been independently certified for complying with the material extraction requirements under NSF/ANSI Standard 177. Essentially, this part of the standard looks for any foreign substance that may be inadvertently imparted into the filtered water. If a foreign substance is present above the limit established by the standard, the product will not meet the certification requirements.

Q: I have read that some shower filters impart a “foul odor”. Is this the case with WaterChef shower filters?

A: NO. Unlike most other shower filter systems that use cheap vinyl shower hoses, WaterChef shower filters use premium quality, plated stainless steel shower hoses that contain an inner liner constructed from non-toxic and odorless silicone (No PVC!). That means no “foul plastic odor”, even at high temperatures.

  1. Results Are As Advertised

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Oct 2020

    Have been using this product for about a year. I've found that the filter noticeably reduces chlorine/hard water odor and my hair and skin feel slightly softer.

    Some of the other 5-star reviews of this product raise my eyebrow. This product isn't going to deliver Fiji Water out of your showerhead (after all, the filter is only rated at NSF/ANSI 177), but then again, that isn't what it's intended to do. As long as you properly manage your expectations, you ought to be perfectly happy with your purchase.

  2. WaterChef Stands Behind their products!

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Oct 2020

    I was skeptical and always look for low reviews/ratings of the product to determine the quality of the product and how the company deals with unhappy customers. Since 2016, we have been using the WaterChef shower filtration system and I gotta say, this is one of the best things we've invested in!
    Before the filtration system, my family of 5 usually come out of the shower with red/irritated eyes, dry/scaly skin and scalp. I have sensitive skin, and my kids often get eczema. My husband and I realized the long-term consequences if we continue to expose our family to such poor water quality.
    Within the 1st week of use, we all noticed a BIG difference. We don't have red/dry/irritated eyes anymore, our skin and scalp are so much more "moisturized" without the dry, scaly sensation. This has helped me with hair loss too (less scaly scalp), and leaves our skin (face, arms, legs, etc.) sooooo smooth.
    A major thing every customer needs is a company that will stand behind its product. For 4 years, we have received consistent and quick delivery/replacements via their warranty EVERY time. Sometimes with use, the housing unit may have slight cracks, causing water to spurt/squirt out in certain angles (THIS has been the ONLY issue we experienced w/ the product itself). Customer service is super fast, friendly and attentive (keeps you updated on the progress of replacement). We trust WaterChef for delivering on their promises, being affordable, blessing our lives with these products and outstanding service. Thanks WaterChef!

  3. I never give a 5 review

    Posted by Francois on 18th Oct 2020

    Oh my goodness it leaves you feeling reborn.
    Perfect for bathing my 3 standard poodles.
    Only drawback is you spend most of your day in the shower.

  4. Amazing for my sensitive skin

    Posted by Joseph on 17th Sep 2020

    I have sensitive skin and mild psoriasis and the removal of chlorine by this filter makes a huge difference.

  5. Excellent Customer Service

    Posted by Margot on 17th Aug 2020

    I called the customer service, and they helped me and everything is all good.

    Excellent customer service.

  6. My Hair and Skin Love This!

    Posted by Darcel on 11th Jun 2020

    My shower used to smell like a pool. The amount of chlorine in the water was insane and my skin and hair were drying out so much. Since using this filter for the last year, I’ve found that my hair color lasts longer, my skin doesn’t get as dry, and I no longer feel like I’m stepping out of a pool when I get out of the shower. Love it!

  7. The Best

    Posted by Joyce on 30th Mar 2020

    Chelsey is the best! The shower system is the best and I had tried a number of them before Water Chef. I have such sensitive skin and this product has made a big difference in my skin and hair! Because of the Coronovirus I called Chelsey and had her send a replacement filter a month early, just in case.
    I can’t say enough about how good I believe this product is.

  8. Good quality, not so great shower head

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Jan 2020

    No leaks, no plumbers tape required, metal not plastic components.
    This company put a lot of thought into the product and it shows. However, I'm not thrilled with the shower head as the water only comes out on the edges of the head unless you choose to add the massage in the middle of the head as well but that reduces the water force. The water pressure isn't as good as I hoped. Can't use a different handheld since there is a propetary piece of plastic to keep the handle on. A better showerhead would give it 5 stars.


    From WaterChef:

    Thank you for your feedback. Please know that if you have a hand-held shower wand that you love, our system is indeed compatible with most standard shower wands. A standard wand screws directly into the shower system's supplied swivel. (Just be sure to use a wand that does not have a "shut-off" or "pause" setting, as this can put extreme internal pressure on the system.)

  9. Health

    Posted by Rick on 11th Nov 2019

    My wife was unable to shower due to the chlorine in our water. This product, every two to three months a new filter, allows us to shower without any affects from chlorine. Can't live without it.

  10. I love the product and the service.

    Posted by Dr. Y. Styles on 3rd Oct 2019

    I love Water Chef products which I have been using for years. Chelsey is a wonderful representative of your company who is thorough, charming and always helpful. I love the product and the service

The WaterChef SF-7C Premium Shower Filtration System is
rated 4.6/5 based on 57 reviews

The WaterChef shower filter does an outstanding job of removing the chlorine in our water. There is a noticeable difference in the smoothness of my hair and skin. I don't have to use as much shampoo and conditioner, since I started using the filter. My students no longer tell me that I smell like a swimming pool. I will definately be purchasing an additional filter. Debbie O., WaterChef Customer
