10 Stages of Protection Against Major Water Contaminants
- Stage 1 - 30 micron sponge filter. Traps larger solids (sediments) such as rust.
- Stage 2 - 8 oz. of KDF-55. KDF-55 is a patented alloy which removes free chlorine and some heavy metals, thereby prolonging the life of the filter and is an excellent Bacteriostat.
- Stage 3 - 10 micron felt pad which removes smaller floating solids and separates the layers, preserving their integrity.
- Stage 4 - 30 cubic inches of ultra fine mesh, superior coconut shell and granulated activated carbon. Granulated activated carbon has long been accepted by the E.P.A. and others as the premier, cost-effective way to remove chlorine, bad odors and color from drinking water. G.A.C. also removes organic contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, arsenic, mercury and trihalomethanes - a cancer-causing organic pollutant.
- Stage 5 - 10 micron felt pad for fine sediment removal.
- Stage 6 - 7 cubic inches of ion exchange resin which removes lead to below minimum E.P.A. standards.
- Stage 7 - Additional 30 micron felt pad provides an extra buffer against floating sediment of any kind.
- Stage 8 - 7 cubic inch bed of G.A.C. which provides extra protection against cancer-causing organic pollutants.
- Stage 9 - 2 oz. of calcite which raises the water’s pH and lowers acidity. It also increases alkalinity, which many nutritionists recommend.
- Stage 10 - 1 micron absolute depth filter. A filter with a micron rating this small screens outcysts and protozoa, (including Giardia and Cryptosporidium), and gives the filtered water a sparkling clarity.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the replaceable water filter cartridge last?
Each Water Filter cartridge should be changed after 1500 gallons or a maximum of 18 months.
This would be approximately one year for a family of four, assuming they each drank 1/2 gal. a day and they wash fruits and vegetables in filtered water.
How do I change the replaceable water filter cartridge?
Unlike many water filter brands, the whole water filter system does not have to be thrown away. The housing is simply unscrewed, the old water filter cartridge removed and a new one dropped in. Water Filter Cartridges are readily available nationwide wherever the water filters are sold, or information may be obtained from New Wave Enviro Products at 1-800-592-8371.
To make it easier to change the filter, soak the entire unit in hot water (1gallon) and a little bit of white vinegar (1 tablespoon). Take the unit out and turn it counter-clockwise.
Is the 10 Stage Premium Water Filter tested and approved?
The 10 Stage Premium Water Filter has been extensively tested by Truesdale Laboratories, Inc. an EPA approved Lab which is certified to do filter testing and tests to the same EPA protocols as NSF.

How does New Wave Enviro promote Green Living?
New Wave Enviro focuses on critical health and environmental issues facing us today.

New Wave Enviro products include bottles made from EastarTM Resin, Stainless Steel, and their Corn-Based Bottle. Living a Plastic litter-free lifestyle is an easy, inexpensive and helpful step towards saving the environment.
Chlorine gas was used extensively in WW1 as a chemical warfare agent. Today it is used in municipal water supplies to deliver water to our homes free of microscopic contaminants. However it serves no useful purpose on or in our bodies. New Wave designs, patents and manufactures water filters that remove harmful chlorine & other contaminants from shower, bath and drinking water at home and away from home.
Unscrew and remove the existing shower head from the shower arm (1/2 in. pipe).
2. To minimze water drips, wrap the included teflon tape around the shower arm and the filter (optional).
3. Screw the Premium Shower Filter onto the shower arm and screw the shower head onto the Shower Filter. Hand Tighten Only- overtightening can crack the filter housing.
4. The Premium Showr Filter is now ready for use. Simply turn on the water as usual. The very first time the Shower Filter is used, the water may take a minute or so to flow through.
5. Whenever the Premium Shower Filter is opened to replace the cartridge, the o-rings there to keep the filter from leaking should be properly seated in their channels, and rubbed with petroluem jelly to keep them supple. Petroluem jelly can also be used on the threads of the housing.

Great Product have used this shower filter system for several years. Great for your skin as it removes chorine from your shower water. I have also found it very helpful if you dye your hair to keep the color from fading.
This is a great and affordable shower filter. No more red and itchy eyes after showering.
Our skin feels softer and not as dry after showering also.
Good product, good price, quick shipping, good deal!
After having a home with my own well water (no chlorinated)and then moving to a home with city water I could see the difference in the highly chlorinated water which I could smell. Not wanting to have this absorbed into my body I had purchased the whole system from the health food store and now have replaced the filter. I am completely satisfied with this produce.
South Florida has very hard water. This filter works well and the cartridge lasts for about a year. Have been using the New Wave Enviro Shower Filter for over three years.
Great filter. Good & I use it.
It's now the middle of February and I am now smelling chlorine which is 3 months early. I have had to replace my filter early before because of a "bad batch" according to the New Wave products rep. The filter has rust spots. I will be replacing this with the second filter I purchased. Hopefully this one won't be from the "bad batch".
I recommend this site and am very happy with this vendor! This is my second order of shower filter replacement cartridges. Their customer service is excellent, and items ship as described. My only suggestion is that the shipping boxes could be more durable for heavy items like filters, and the packing material could be better placed to surround the filters, not just push them to one side. Where I live, USPS really abuses the boxes, and the last one arrived a slightly dented. (This probably wouldn't be a concern for lightweight things such as vitamins.)
Easy to install. Together with the original filter, I've used for about 18 months including 2 New England winters and it seems to be effective in reducing skin dryness from the chlorinated town water supply.
I was hoping this would fit an existing shower filter I had for years. Called the company to get measurements and they were so nice to help me out. FIts perfectly and I didn't need to buy another filter. So nice when a company keeps making the same thing for years instead of making products obsolete so you have to throw out the old and buy new just to make it work. Thanks New Wave!!
I can really notice a difference in my shower water with these filters. Easy to install as well.
It takes the bad smell and taste of the water out, for sure. I have been using them for over 3 years (this is a third time I bought replacement cartridge). Lucky Vitamins, great price an exceptional service!
I am grateful for the feeling of security I experience when I shower knowing that the water is safe and not full of dangerous substances.
I've been using this filter for almost 3 years on two showers in my house. It has been working well until recently. The last two replacement cartridges I bought last year rusted shortly and started to break down. I had to change filter twice within a month. Wonder if anybody else has the same problem.
Our skin seems healthier, less dry when using this product to filter our chlorine.
Vrry inexpensive way to filter hot water. Been using for 4 yrs now.
Still on shelf. Exact duplicate as the one in the Shower Filter I bought. Just a spare so I have one on hand.
This shower filter is easy to install and does a great job. I have been using it for over a year now and plan to continue.
Before using the shower filter, my eyes were always burning when I took a shower. Now with my Enviro filter I no longer have burning eyes!
Thanks! Great product!
These are the only shower filters I have used for about ten years. I take that back...I tried a Culligan shower filter once, but it was not anywhere near as effective as the New Wave filter. My hair and skin let me know that right away. I have well water, and my hair dresser said that although I do not have to worry about chlorine, I have to keep the minerals from the well water from building up on my hair shaft. She said this is especially important for people with curly hair since the hair shaft is often coarse and porous. We have had our well water tested, and although it is supposed to be fine, I have noticed that if I do NOT use a New Wave shower filter, I break out constantly. For me, this filter is a necessary luxury.
This is a great water filter! My skin is much softer
After using it
I like this product since I have hard water. It would dry out my skin and the water also has too much chlorine that I can smell it. My fingers would get prune-like after a 20 minute shower. The filter stopped all that and made my water softer and filtered out the chlorine. Now I can shower with clear water too since my water used to be yellowish.
Good for the price and for what it is. Takes away most of the smell and feels better on the skin. Keeps hair from drying out as well.
I've been using a New Wave shower filter for about 3 years now. It gets rid of the chlorine odor. I also think it keeps my color treated hair from fading as quickly.
I've had the New Wave shower filter on my shower head for about a year. It's working perfectly, When I needed a replacement filter, it was available on Lucky Vitamin at the lowest price on the web. I ordered it here, shipping was fast, great experience! Thanks
