A good bath after a long day is a comfort everyone deserves. But with the wrong shower head, you might end up more stressed than before. In this Culligan WSH C125 review, we will look at how this shower will change the way you take a bath forever.
Culligan WSH-C125 Overview
Culligan is well-known for being among the top producers of high-quality water treatment products in the country. Their shower filters are also proven to reduce the minerals that make up hard water.
Let’s take a look at the key features of this shower filter.
Easy to Install
The Culligan WSH C125 can be easily installed on most standard ½ inch pipes without any tools or paying for a handyman.
The package includes a Teflon tape which helps stop leaks when installing new fixtures for pipes.
As it resembles a regular shower head, anyone who rents an apartment can install this. This way, you don’t need to replace the whole shower system to get a great shower.
The Culligan WSH C125 showerhead effectively removes chlorine, scale, and rust, which are among the causes of hard water problems. You will know that the filter is effective once you notice the disappearance of the sulfuric smell, and scale on the bathtub.
The filter media has bacteriostatic, a patented system that reduces the number of bacteria that may live in the showerhead. These foreign bacteria and minerals can cause itchy skin, dandruff, and even some skin infection.
Also, it will keep your hair from being dry and hard to comb after each shower because it filtered out the minerals that cause that, chlorine. You will feel a difference in the texture of your hair when using this shower regularly.
Varied Spray Settings
Not only will you be able to have clean shower water, but you will also have a custom shower experience. The showerhead allows for five different settings that you can easily access with a simple turn.
The five spray settings include full-body, soft rain spray, invigorating pulse, full-body spray with rain combination, and full body spray with pulse combination. Find your favorite or pick the one depending on how you feel. A good massage has a lot of benefits especially for the elderly.
Certification & Warranty
This shower is certified by IAPMO, a regulating body that sets the standard for plumbing equipment. It has ANSI Standard 177 which means it can reduce chlorine. You will also get a limited 5-year warranty.
This showerhead has a replaceable filter. It is recommended to change it every 6 months. On average it would have filtered about 10,000 liters of water during that time.
Culligan recommends the WHR-140 for this model which costs $15.13. It will also fit other Culligan shower filter products as specified in the spec sheet. This is the heart of the shower filter as it is effective in cleaning the water from contaminants.
Annual Maintenance Cost: $30 – $60
There are some other factors that you may need to consider before buying the Culligan WSH-C125 so that you don’t have any regret.
Check The Contaminants
While it does a good job removing chlorine, scale, and rust, it may not be as effective with other minerals that are present in waters. Check the water composition of your area first to see if there are other minerals in the water that may affect your hair and skin.
1.8 GPM Output
This shower’s output is at 1.8 gallons per minute. This is great if you want to conserve water. But if you want a stronger output like 2.5 GPM, there are other showerheads that can provide that flow rate.
The 1.8 GPM flow rate is ideal for homes with family members using the shower.
Hard to Adjust
As with other showerheads, changing out the shower setting may be a little difficult because these are designed to be durable as well. But it is not impossible to change. Being a filter as well, the spray setting feature has been set so that it can be changed with a little effort.
The rubber gasket inside the showerhead may also be worn out due to daily and heavy usage.
Only Designed for Wall Showers
You can’t put this on handheld shower units. It has a different configuration which will only match wall showers. It is bulky and comes only in chrome color.
