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!

WaterChef shower filter SF-7C - premium shower filtrationStart 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!

Our advanced ThermalGuard™ catalytic carbon has been specially formulated to work well over a wide variety of temperature ranges, including hot water. Unlike competitive filters that still use KDF, 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 flexibility and durability without any of the kinking or foul "plastic odor" associated with less expensive plastic hoses – even at high temperatures!

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

Trusted Performance - Independently Tested & Certified for NSF/ANSI Standard 177

nsf-wqa-logo-bug.pngIn an industry riddled with unvalidated and exaggerated performance claims, you can rest assured knowing that WaterChef has invested in third-party testing and certification by the water filtration industry's leading authorities, NSF International and the Water Quality Association (WQA).

No other independent testing programs require the strict compliance standards imposed by NSF and WQA. They are valued by consumers, manufacturers, retailers and regulatory agencies worldwide. Trust is what certification is all about.

WaterChef SF-7C Shower Filter Systems have been tested and certified 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 NSF International or the Water Quality Association (WQA). 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. Most Useful Filter/ Shower Head Combination

    Posted by Tony Weishner on 30th Jan 2018

    I have had the Water Chef system in filtering water for several years now.
    You will not find a more useful and practical system to filter water while showering. The flexibility and length of the hose and swivel just makes it perfect to shower and then move it out of the way.
    Yes, the water is much better but the system is simply perfect and at a cost everyone can afford. Replacement elements are very easy to install. Once you have one you will experience the joy of Water Chef. Just the BEST !

  2. Excited when first used product, now not so happy.

    Posted by Donna on 3rd Nov 2017

    When I first received product and used for the first time, I was very excited and impressed. The spray was beyond my expectations. Now the water trickles out. Not working properly at all. My husband has taken apart and reinstalled many times but does not work well at all. Takes forever to get soap out of hair.


    From WaterChef:

  3. Shower with luxury

    Posted by Deborah M on 7th Aug 2017

    This shower filter and head are the best. I moved to the city from a rural area . . . and now deal with city water in contrast to well water. My skin reacted with dryness and red irritation. Now, after the purchase of the WaterChef SF-7C Premium Shower Filtration System . . . my skin feels and looks wonderful . . . and no chlorine smell. I love taking a shower with this unit. Highly recommend!


    Posted by Geralyn on 6th Aug 2017

    I shopped around and did my homework before deciding to purchase the Waterchef shower filtration system. After reading so many articles and online reviews it was a no brainer I was buying the best system available.

    I must start with the design. The Waterchef shower system is sleek and very attractive looking. Unlike other brands that had an uncovered filter hanging below a shower head, theirs is enclosed in a unit that matches the shower head finish. Waterchef also offered their filtered shower head in different finishes so I was able to match my bathroom fixtures perfectly.

    The constitution is of high quality material and the shower house is made of metal and is long enough to spray out the fun after showering and general cleaning. What I really love about this system is the swivel design incorporated in the shower heads arm. In able to easily turn the spray in the direction I desire with the gentle touch of a finger.

    Now the very best part of this system is the filtered water. I didn't know how much I needed this filter until I experienced the difference. My skin no longer has that tight dry feeling after showering. I'm using less shampoo and body wash. And because I have natural grey hair I find that it's no longer yellowing and it's actually softer, shinier, and healthier then before Waterchef. In fact I truly believe that anyone rocking they're natural grey hair should make this a must!! Grey hair is porous and absorbs chemicals and minerals from unfiltered water. The filtered water made a huge difference in my hairs appearance.

    I highly recommend this Waterchef filtration system to all as I believe everyone can benefit from bathing in more purified water.

  5. Great product~Best Customer Service

    Posted by Ruthie on 23rd Jun 2016

    This shower filter fits our lifestyle perfectly. Hubby is 6'3" and I am 5'1". We can each adjust the spray to fit our heights. There is no restriction in water pressure either. I no longer smell the chlorine and the filter lasts about 4-6 months. After about a year, the part that holds the shower head broke, so I emailed customer service and they sent out a replacement part the next day, no questions asked. Another year later, same part broke and no problem! I had a replacement within 2 days. I would recommend this shower filter to enjoined who needs to filter out the chlorine.

    Hello Ruthie,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a wonderful review! We strive to provide excellent customer service and love hearing from happy customers.

    Thank you again,

  6. WaterChef SF-7C

    Posted by Cheryl Brock on 20th May 2016

    This product is amazing! Our water is normally saturated with chlorine and was drying out my skin and hair. Since using this shower filter, no more chlorine smell and my skin and hair are now normal.

    Might I add, Waterchef has really great customer service. I did have an issue, which was resolved immediately by Waterchef customer service with no problem.

    They were efficient and very helpful. I did e-mail the company and "J" responded with great service. Thank you!

  7. Filter spews carbon bits after 6 months

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Apr 2016

    Product looks great and is well made except the filter. Twice it has happened to me where the filter leaks carbon bits. The company tells me that this is possible. My son was taking a shower and he called for me. When I got there the entire shower and his body was covered in black carbon bits.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for us. Would it be possible for you to contact us directly so we can figure out what is happening and take care of this you?

    Thank you in advance,

    WaterChef Customer Care


    Posted by Susan on 10th Feb 2016

    Had initial problems called and spoke to "J" . She so pleasantly suggested I try taking off all the old plumber's tape and just reapply the filter without any. It worked like a charm! Wow can't wait to see if my gift makes a great shower! If I have problems I'll come back but so far so good! Loved the rare customer service tho :D

  9. Best H2O Filtration Bar None!

    Posted by Nils V on 5th Jan 2016

    Absolutely the best!
    The water is transformed into something so silky, soft and fluid, one wonders if water was ever naturally like this!

    I hate to waste it when I hose down the shower stall.
    I wish there was a switch, so I could turn off the filtration when
    I use it for stall cleaning.

    I travel often and wish I could bring it along and install in my hotel rooms!!

    Just got it Saturday, installed it Sunday and had a shower with it and can see the difference in my hair and skin! LOVE it!

The WaterChef SF-7C Premium Shower Filtration System is
rated 4.5/5 based on 39 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
