I am hoping to find a shower panel that has a filter. I have found a few shower heads with filters but not panels. Any suggestions?
At the moment, we have not found any shower panels on the market that include a filtration system. However, this doesn’t necessarily stop you from creating your own unique system, using components from Amazon.
When you (or your plumber) is installing the shower panel, you can install a shower filter to filter the water that is going in to the shower panel. The easiest way to do this would be to install an item like the Aquasana AQ-4100 Deluxe Shower Water Filter System or the Rainshow’r CQ-1000-NH Dechlorinating Shower Filter on both the cold and hot water lines that go into the back of your shower panel, remembering that you will need to have these somewhat easily accessible to swap filters every 3-6 months depending on your water usage. You (or your plumber) could also slightly modify the plumbing on the back of the shower panel to include a filter after the mixing valve.
Obviously, this may end up looking a little unsightly having extra plumbing appearing from behind the shower panel to allow access to the filters so they can be changed easily. The alternative would be to have a much larger filtration system installed that filtered all of the water in your house. This way, you’d also be protected from the harmful effects of chlorine and other chemicals in the water supply when using other taps in your home – i.e. the bathroom sink, kitchen sink and also when washing your clothes.
A whole house water filter system, like the Home Master HMF2SdgC Two Stage Water Filtration System has both a Fine Sediment filter to remove dirt and other elements from the water and then a Carbon filter to remove chlorine. These are typically installed just after your water meter, or where the water supply enters your home, so that every tap in your home (including your hot water service) is supplied with clean, filtered water.
I hope this answers your question.
