Chlorine is universally used to chemically disinfect water. It kills germs, bacteria and other living organisms. Sprite shower filtration media was designed for hot water, becoming more efficient as the water temperature increases. Sprite invested a great amount research developing a line of realistic catalytic shower filters that filter both free and combined chlorine's, dirt, sediment, odors, hydrogen sulfide, iron oxides, and more, from your shower water. When it comes to filtering shower water Kdf is the answer.
Cartridge Life One year; based on average usage. Keep in mind that some shower filters have to work a lot harder than others, and you might want to adjust for your individual usage. Filtration Media KDF and Chlorgon. KDF is a patented specialty medium used in most shower filters and in other water filtration venues. It’s main function is chlorine removal. Chlorgon is a patented special filter medium available only in Sprite shower filters.
Weight White: 22 ounces.
Chrome: 34 ounces.
Dimensions White: Length: 4.25 inches. Diameter: 3.25 inches.
Chrome: 4.5 inches. Diameter: 2.5 inches.
Port Size Standard 1/2 inch pipe thread
Burst Pressure Rating of Housing 600 psi. This is the strongest replaceable shower filters on the market.
Warranty Limited One Year Warranty.
Suggested Maintenance The cartridge is reversible. It can be easily rotated to operate in either direction. Although rotating the cartridge is not necessary, and many users don’t bother, periodically reversing the cartridge backwashes the cartridge as it is filtering, ensures balanced filtration, reduces the likelihood of channeling, and should prolong the life of the cartridge. The manufacturer recommends monthly reversal of the cartridge.

Sprite shower filters work on a similar principle to a Catalytic Converter in an automobile. In shower filtration free-chlorine is converted into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this chemical reaction is known as "Reduction-Oxidation", commonly referred to as Redox.
Redox reactions can be chemically complex. Simply stated, during a Redox reaction electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new elements. For instance, when free-chlorine comes in contact with the filtration media, it is changed into a benign, water-soluble chloride. This reaction changes free-chlorine to a larger chloride element. Too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the skin. It is then carried harmlessly through the water supply.
Redox Filtration Media's
Chlorgon is one type of Redox filtration media. Researched, developed and patented by David Farley, CEO of Sprite Industries, Inc., Chlorgon converts free chlorine and some combined chlorine's, such as sodium hypochlorite (liquid swimming pool chlorine), to a harmless chloride. Chlorgon also works well in a variety of temperatures from hot to cold.
Chlorgon is also the active ingredient for Sprite's Mediterranean Blue: De-chlorinating Bath Salts. Kinetic Degradation Fluxion, or KDF, is another type of Redox filtration media. Researched, developed and patented by Don Heskett, founder of KDF fluid treatment, KDF converts free chlorine to a harmless chloride. This media of high-purity copper-zinc formulations is used in pretreatment, primary treatment, and wastewater applications. Patented KDF process media are 100 percent recyclable and contain no chemical additives. Hospitals, restaurants, municipal water treatment facilities, and homes rely on KDF process media to safely reduce or remove free chlorine, iron oxides and hydrogen sulfide.
