1. Rinse Your New Shower Filter

Remove your shower filter from its packaging and place it under a stream of warm water. Let the water flush through the filter for 60 seconds. Then flip it over and allow the water to run in the opposite direction. This is an important step to remove any carbon dust that may have built up within the filter.

2. Remove the Existing Shower Head From Your Shower 

Twist your existing shower head counter-clockwise to loosen and remove it from the shower arm. If you have a specialty shower head or mount that doesn’t simply twist loose, you may need to consult the showerhead documentation for information on how to remove it.

If the shower head is just stuck or has been installed too tightly to easily twist, you may need to use a pair of pliers or a wrench to loosen the head.

3. Clean Your Shower Arm

Scrub your shower arm threads to remove any mildew, soap scum, dirt, or other bacteria. One easy way to do this is to use a wired brush or steel wool along with a 1:1 mixture of water and white vinegar. Once you’ve finished cleaning the threads, wrap two to three layers of plumbers’ tape around the threads.

4. Attach Your Shower Filter

Place the provided washer into its connector along the top of the shower filter. Then screw the filter into the shower arm by turning it clockwise until it fits snugly. All water will now feed directly into the filter through the shower arm.

6. Replace Your Filter at Least Once Every 6 Months

Every AquaBliss shower water filter for hard water includes a pre-installed cartridge, so you don’t need to buy anything extra to get started.

However, the filter cartridge does need to be replaced at least once every 6 months (even the best shower head for hard water needs occasional maintenance, right?).

The good news is that these filter cartridges are easy to replace. 

  1. Remove the shower head or mount by twisting it counter-clockwise 
  2. Remove the shower filter by twisting it counter-clockwise 
  3. Open the shower filter and remove your old cartridge
  4. Insert the replacement cartridge with the mesh facing up (toward the shower arm)
  5. Close the shower filter and reattach it to the shower arm 
  6. Run the shower for at least 1 minute to flush out any carbon dust 
  7. Reattach the shower head
