Questions & Answers

Does the water filter fit any shower?

We supply all shower filters ready for installation. They fit all standard shower connections.

What do I do if the distance to the wall is too small?

What happens more often is that the distance between the shower fitting and the wall is too small. For such cases, we offer an "angle-distance adapter" for the water outlet (the connection base) in the shower.

  • When do I need the angle distance adapter? If the distance between the connecting elbow (centre) and the shower wall (tiles) is less than 35 mm, you will find the suitable spacer here.

The Alb Filter Nano offers reliable protection as a Legionella filter for the shower, as well as against bacterial or germ contamination in the water. Inside is a high performance hollow fiber membrane, which due to its small diameter of 0.1 µm is able to reliably retain Legionella and other bacteria, microorganisms and pathogens such as e.g. E-Coli, Vibrio Cholarae, Shigella.

The Alb Filter Balance shower filter is a mix of mineralisation and pollutant filtration. In addition to reducing pollutants and removing odors and chlorine in the water, the filter media contained can provide pH stabilization of the water as well as mineral enrichment.

Why should I filter my shower water at all?

Why filter water (again)? Most consumers get their shower water directly from the waterworks, where it has previously been purified and treated. But the ingredients in the shower water can have serious defects.

Can I circumvent a shower ban in case of legionella infestation by installing the nano filter?

When using the shower filter cartridge Nano, you can protect yourself effectively and reliably against Legionnaires ' disease, a serious pneumonia, even if the Legionella test result is positive and you are under an acute shower ban.

Doesn't the drinking water ordinance provide for strict controls?

Our tap water in Germany is strictly controlled, but the reality often shows a different picture. The quality is based on limit values for currently about 60 pollutants, which have been defined in the Drinking Water Ordinance.

Our point of view: Every year, reports of legionella in drinking water accumulate in Germany. And even minor concentrations of substances such as heavy metals or microplastics are not taken into account by the Drinking Water Ordinance.

How long can I use my shower filter?

The housing of the filter is made of a food-safe metal alloy and is actually indestructible when used properly. The filter cartridges are different.

How often do I have to change the shower filter cartridges?

The cartridges consist of a specially sintered core of activated carbon, which loses its filter performance over time. A change of the shower filter cartridge should be done about every 6 months and is easily done.

Why does an activated carbon filter lose its filtering capacity? Here you can read how an activated carbon filter works.

How can I tell if I need to change the cartridge?

There are no indicators for a change - unless you have the water tested regularly in the laboratory. Of course, this is not realistic.

How much does a (new) shower filter cartridge cost?

The prices of the cartridges (exception: Alb Nano) range from about 25 to 35 euros for the single pack and from about 65 to 100 euros for the three-pack.
