The ZenFresh filtration shower head is a product that I had been wanting to try for quite a while. Its unique filtration system – active mineral stones – is part of what drew me in. Water filtration using natural stones? Sign me up. But I was curious to see if it really worked, or if it was all just hype.
With so many positive reviews, it had to work at least somewhat, right? Absolutely. I was surprised by the difference, but like any other showerhead, this model isn’t perfect.
Here’s what I like and didn’t like about the ZenFresh:
- Active mineral stones boost mineral absorption, which improves dry skin and hair
- Low flow, but still delivers a luxurious shower experience
- Beautiful to look at
- Unbeatable price
- Beads can’t be replaced
According to the manufacturer, you can’t replace the beads, and they only last a year. This means that you’ll be replacing your showerhead every year. While it’s probably still cheaper than replacing filters in a showerhead, it feels a bit wasteful – especially since the company keeps promoting this product as eco-friendly.
ZenFresh Filtration Shower Head Review
The ZenFresh is a beautiful showerhead, especially if you’re going for that spa-like look in your bathroom. The natural, earthy beads make the experience a little more luxurious. And despite this model being low flow, you won’t notice a difference in pressure at all. In fact, I think this model does a better job of washing out shampoo than our other filtered showerhead.
Installation is simple, but I do have to mention that this model does not come with a hose. If you’re looking to use this as a handheld model, you’ll need to purchase a hose and arm mount separately. Both of these are easy to install, too.
The pressure is impressive with this model, especially considering that it’s low flow. My only concern was that the beads need to be replaced yearly, and to do that, you’ll need to buy a new showerhead. Some users did say that you can buy the beads separately online, but I cannot verify whether this is true or whether the replacement beads work as well.
As far as filtration goes, I did notice that my skin and hair felt great after using this showerhead. I’ve also noticed less buildup on the showerhead itself, which means the beads are obviously removing some of the minerals in our water. So far, this showerhead has been nothing but pleasant to use.
- Low flow handheld showerhead
- Negative ion spheres purify the water and improve absorption of mineral nutrients
- 3 layers of mineralized spheres
If you’re looking for a showerhead that offers natural filtration and a spa look, you can’t go wrong with the ZenFresh.
