Luxsego Ionic Shower Head Review (2020)

Luxsego Ionic Shower Head Review

🧾 Overview

The Luxsego Ionic Shower Head is a handheld shower filter that helps to treat dry hair and skin. This showerhead has a unique clear-body design that lets you see the mineral beads inside. It has a double filter system that will reduce chlorine and absorb harmful substances in water, while softening and purifying water to improve hair and skin health. The unit’s micro-nozzle technology helps to steady and increase water flow over the entire showerhead, helping to produce a more even stream.

You can switch the Luxsego shower head to three modes: rainfall, jetting and massage, depending on your own water pressure preferences. The shower is ideal for situations where there may be a lower water pressure, such as in an RV. It has a long hose that allows you to easily change your showering handle, and you can choose to either hold the showerhead in your hand or attach it to a shower arm.

💡 Features

Showerhead unit

The Luxsego shower head unit is smart and interesting in design. The filter beads inside the showerhead need to be changed approximately every 6 months.

Shower hose

The showerhead comes with a hose that you can attach up to your plumbing system as you would a normal shower hose. This hose is long enough to be able to position your showerhead at your preferred angle.

Shower bracket

The Luxsego is a handheld showerhead filter, but you can attach it to your wall using the provided bracket for convenience.

Teflon tape

Teflon tape comes in handy for preventing leaks when attaching the shower up to your plumbing. You may not need to use it, but it’s a handy add-on just in case.

Instruction manual/ user guide

You can find everything you need to know about installation and maintenance in the user manual.

Luxsego Ionic Shower Head

🚦 Performance

The best thing about the Luxsego Ionic Shower Head’s performance is that it doesn’t just filter contaminants from water, it also increases shower pressure by up to 200%.

That means that even in homes with a very low water pressure, you won’t have to deal with a shower with a poor stream. The nozzle itself is designed to distribute water evenly out of the showerhead, and there are options to change the stream if you’re looking for higher pressure, or want to lower the pressure to save energy.

The filter’s primary purpose is to remove chlorine with its negative ion stone filter media. It can also soften and purify shower water, making it kinder for use on your hair and skin.

The showerhead isn’t actually NSF or ANSI certified to this date, so you’ll have to take the manufacturer’s word for it, plus check out customer reviews to determine whether it works as advertised. The good news is that the filter media beads can last for up to 6 months, so you won’t need to worry about changing them frequently.

🔧 Installation & Maintenance

The Luxsego Ionic Shower Head is one of the easiest shower filters to install, because like with a standard shower, you get the whole set – the hose, the wall mount, and the head itself. You don’t need to add in the beads or the anti scale plate at this point, as they’re already pre-installed in the system.

When the anti-scale plate and ion beads need changing, you will need to put in slightly more effort than replacing a standard filter cartridge. For the anti-scale plate, unscrew the front of the showerhead and remove the plate, then put the new plate in its place and screw the front back on.

For the ion beads, you will need to unscrew the bottom half of the shower, which contains the beads. Remove the washer inside, then empty the balls out. You can do the same on the other side of the showerhead, which also contains beads. Then refill the beads, replace the washer on each side, and screw the shower in place. It’s a good idea to have a refill pack of beads to hand, as you’ll need to replace them every 6 months or so.

📝 Filter Info

The Luxsego Ionic Showerhead doesn’t have a traditional filter cartridge – instead it has negative ion mineral stones, which essentially do the same job as a filter cartridge in reducing chlorine in water. There is also an anti-scale plate, which removes limescale-causing minerals from water, helping to prevent hard water issues like dry skin conditions and dull, lifeless hair.

If you’d prefer to buy a showerhead water filter with an ANSI/NSF certification, you should know that the Luxego filter doesn’t yet have a certification for chlorine removal. However, it doesn’t dry out skin and hair when in use, which suggests that it really does soften water. It may be worth purchasing a chlorine testing kit and trialing the showerhead out to determine whether it works to reduce your water’s chlorine content.
