The Culligan Wall-Mount Filtered Showerhead is a chrome-finish patented filter that filters chlorine and may also filter sulfur and bacteria. It offers five spray settings, is easy to install (without needing any tools) and is certified by NSF International against ANSI Standard 177 to reduce chlorine.
The Culligan showerhead also meets the EPA Water Sense certification standard of maximum 2.0 gallons per minute or less, making it a fantastic option for water conservation.
This system has anti clog rubber spray nozzles offering five spray settings and incorporates patented filter media that is claimed to be bacteriostatic, meaning that the passage and growth of bacteria are limited, so you can enjoy a cleaner shower experience.
The Culligan installs on any standard half-inch threaded shower arm and includes the whr-140 filter cartridge which filters sulfur odor, chlorine, and scale for a full 10,000 gallons. This equates to around six months of use.
Some users find that the showerhead slows down flow a little too much, however, but this is easily remedied. Either the entire flow restrictor insert can be removed (although this is not recommended), or you can remove the o-ring (the small gray ring) that encircles the flow restrictor. Removing this ring reduces the restrictor’s ability to affect pressure, meaning the volume of water passing through the showerhead increases. Note, however, that removing this ring or the restrictor means that the unit is no longer in compliance with the EPA Water Sense certification.
Culligan was established in 1936 and provides water softening solutions for homes, offices, restaurants and industry worldwide. They offer drinking water systems, whole-house filtration systems and bottled water delivery. The company participates in disaster relief programs globally and locally through Culligan Cares™ and regularly partners with Convoy of Hope to provide clean water for those in need following a disaster.
Culligan have demonstrated a commitment to minimizing their impact on the environment through High Efficiency water conditioners and their Energy Star® rated Bottle-Free® coolers that help reduce the use and disposal of plastic drinking water bottles.
Culligan vs. Propur ProMax and Raindrops
The Culligan Showerhead helps conserve water and is certified to NSF Standard 177, meaning that it reduces chlorine. The company is also longstanding and has a good reputation, including for their commitment to environmental stewardship. However, if you’re looking for a more robust showerhead filter that can reduce or eliminate heavy metals and so forth, the Propur ProMax™ is the top pick by far. The Propur is also EPA WaterSense certified and carried NSF 42 and 53 standards, in addition to being BPA-free, unlike Culligan, Berkey, Raindrops or OPUS.
