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.
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.
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.
