Rainshow'r CQ-1000 dechlorinating shower filter
Rainshow'r CQ-1000 provides a long lasting solution to the problems associated with exposure to excessive amounts of chlorine.*
Chlorine is an inorganic substance that chemically bonds to the protein in our hair and skin, destroying its natural ecological balance. It's fine for removing stains in your laundry, but chlorine can leave your hair dry and brittle and make your skin flaky and itchy.*
Chlorine can also trigger negative reactions in children, the elderly, and people with chlorine sensitivity.*
There have been studies showing that it is best to remove chlorine from your drinking water, so why not do the same with your showering water?*
A Better, Healthier Shower*
You deserve healthier water in every aspect of your daily life, not just the drinking water.*
The Rainshow'r CQ-1000 dechlorinating shower filter provides a long lasting solution to the problems associated with exposure to excessive amounts of chlorine.*
Its specially-formulated KDF filter media effectively removes 90% or more of chlorine from shower water. Once in contact with the KDF, chlorine in the water converts into an environmentally safe and harmless soluble zinc chloride.*
- Because of this superior chlorine removal, you will see changes in the way your hair and skin feel including ...*
- healthier, younger-looking skin*
- softer, more manageable hair*
- relief from dry skin & scalp*
- less fading on color-treated hair*
Comes complete with designer polished chrome head, pop-in replaceable cartridge, sediment trap and quartz crystals for a healthier shower experience. A solid brass collar molded into the body assures a strong, unbreakable plumbing connection.*
- Rainshower converts Chlorine into a harmless soluble chloride*
- Crystalline quartz for energy enhanced shower "feel" and better lathering*
- High quality Whedon shower heads come standard. Polyester filter element enhances cartridge performance through sediment removal.*
- Installs in minutes - no special tools or professional help required.*

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the filtering media?
KDF 55, crystalline quartz, and special polyester sediment trapping material (Poly-flow)
How does KDF work in removing chlorine?
As chlorinated water flows through the unit the dissimilar metals in KDF, (copper and zinc), create a galvanic or electrolytic reaction, which causes the two chlorine ions to combine with a zinc ion to form a harmless chloride. KDF does not hold the chlorine; it changes chlorine from an element into a harmless compound.
How much KDF is in the filter?
There are 14.5 ounces of KDF Media.
What is the advantage of Crystalline Quartz?
Our specially washed and sun dried quartz crystals help to "energize" the water by reducing the water's surface tension. This allows for an increase in the sudsuing and lathering of soaps and shampoos. The water has a "lighter" feel, similar to the feeling of softened water.
Are any ingredients harmful or toxic?
No. KDF is commonly used in drinking water and water treatment systems. The virgin crystalline quartz is washed and sun-cured. Our polyester material is water industry approved and used in drinking water filters.
How much chlorine will the filter remove?
The CQ-1000 will typically remove more than 90% of the free chlorine. Reduction levels of 95% or above are not uncommon, but no chlorine reduction shower filter can remove consistently at 95% because of temperature and water flow variations.
Do you have to back flush the filter?
No. The CQ-1000's Poly-flow material and dispersal fins have been designed to eliminate the need for back flushing.
How do you address water quality?
The cleaner your water the longer and more efficient the filter will be. If heavy levels of sediment and particulate matter are present in the water the KDF media can become clogged making it more difficult to create the electrolytic reaction required for dechlorination. Some sediment and turbidity will inevitably enter the filter, however the filter is specially designed to minimize the effects with it's exclusive sediment trapping screen located in the inlet and the Poly-flow material, both trap large particulate matter as it enters the filter.
Will the Rainshowr remove lead or other heavy metals?
There is not conclusive data to date that KFD can remove lead or other metals when used in shower filters. While KDF has been proven to remove lead and other heavy metals under specific conditions, those conditions are very different from those present shower filters. No tests have yet been done on high flow rate in short-bodied filters such as a 2 to 3 inch shower filter.
How long will the Rainshowr last and how many gallons will it filter?
The ability of any KDF shower filter to reduce chlorine is a function of the quality of the water (i.e. sediment and turbidity levels). As a result, it is difficult to measure precisely in gallons of water. KDF will dechlorinate longer in clean water than in murky water. While it is difficult to measure precisely we can estimate average usefulness. We expect that the Rainshowr filter cartridge will have an effective life of six to nine months for a family of four, or an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 gallons of usage. The Rainshowr body should last for several years with proper care.
How many gallons will the Rainshowr filter per minute?
This depends on the shower head attached. The Rainshowr has been designed and engineered to work most effectively with the high quality low-flow shower heads that conform to the required 2.5 gallons per minute flow rate specified by the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 1992. If flow rates exceed 2.5gpm the contact time required for maximum chlorine conversion will be reduced. For this reason we recommend only high quality, low flow shower heads for any shower filter application.
Can I use my own shower head with the Rainshowr?
Yes, but only a good quality, low flow shower head that has been purchased since 1995. This guarantees conformity to the U. S. Energy Policy Act, and that you have a water delivery at no more than 2.5 gpm at 80 PSI. Hand held units also may be attached to the filter.
