If you’re looking for an affordable way to reduce scale in the shower, the Culligan WSH-C125 filtered showerhead is a great option. We’ve been using this model in our home for four years now, and it not only gets rid of the chlorine smell, but has also minimized the iron and limescale buildup we used to get on our original showerhead.
Our skin and hair look better, too.
While we love our showerhead, there are some things we wish were just a little bit better. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of this model before diving into our review.
- Easy to install – no tool required
- Affordable – filters are reasonably priced, too
- 5 spray settings and massager
- Spray nozzles never get clogged
- Removes chlorine odors and reduces scale buildup
- Can remove the flow restrictor for better pressure
- Spray settings are tough to switch
- Spray area isn’t wide
We did notice that over time, the dial that switches the spray settings gets stuck and makes it hard to turn. This makes it a little awkward to change the spray while you’re taking a shower. We’d also prefer the spray area to be a little bit wider, but this may just be a personal preference.
Aside from these two slight issues, this showerhead is fantastic and comes at a price that’s hard to pass up.
Culligan WSH-C125 Review
We’ve been using the WSH-C125 since 2012 when we purchased it to replace the old showerhead in our apartment. We initially bought it to cut down on the chlorine we’re exposed to in the shower, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that it also reduced scale buildup and helped minimize the iron in our water (which was pretty bad).
Installation couldn’t have been easier. In fact, it was more difficult to remove the original showerhead than it was to install the WSH-C125. Plumber’s tape is included, and we never had any issues with the fixture not being watertight.
The showerhead twists apart for easy installation of the filter. A starter filter is included, and it lasts a whole six months. Replacement filters cost less than $12, so you’re paying a total of about $24 a year for cleaner, fresher water in the shower.
The five spray settings are nice, especially the massager. As mentioned previously, we did have some issues with the dial being hard to turn, but that could be because we never really change the spray setting often.
From the very first use, you’ll notice a difference in the way your skin and hair feels. You’ll also notice that your showerhead no longer gets limescale build-up, which makes it easier to keep things clean.
