Omica Shower Filter Frequently Asked Questions

What size piping does the shower filter fit?

The shower filter connects to a 1/2" pipe with NPT/NPS threading (standard in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico). Many international customers may have BSP threading as the standard in their area. In that case, a Female NPT to Male BSPT adapter is needed.

Will I lose headroom by installing this shower filter?

No, the Omica Shower Filter is specifically designed to sit above your current shower head, not below, so that maximum headroom is maintained even when the filter is in place.
Frequently Asked Questions
A word about fluoride

Omica Organics does not make fluoride claims and we don’t attempt to remove fluoride with our filter. There are a number of challenges that affect the ability to remove fluoride, particularly during showers. Water used during showers is too hot, the water flow is too fast, and there is not enough space in a shower filter to hold the filtering media needed to address fluoride.

Fluoride removal requires a very, very high volume of activated alumina or bone char, so much so that it would require a filter 6’ tall and 3.5” in diameter to sufficiently accommodate 2 people showering over a 6-month period. Even then, the flow of the water would need to be low. We do have a shower filter manufactured on an individual basis that does help remove fluoride. It is large and sits immediately outside the tub. If you are interested, please contact us at

Why are the shower filters no longer white?

Omica Organics has sold only non-pigmented, naturally cream-colored shower filters for the last 4 years. We eliminated dyes and pigments from our shower filter housing for several reasons. Adding dyes and pigments to plastic weakens its integrity, and pigmented plastic is not strong enough to withstand high water pressure without cracking. Also, pigments are synthetic, and introduce vibrational contamination into water used topically (such as showers). By eliminating all dyes and pigments, we are able to offer our customers a much stronger, much better shower filter.

Does this filter have replacement cartridges?

There are no replacement cartridges needed, allowing room for up to 30% more filtration media (twice the filtration media of other shower filters). The filter lasts 6 months, then replace the entire filter, giving you a completely clean and sanitary unit each time.

How accurate are home test kits in testing a water filter’s effectiveness?

The majority of home test kits are inexpensive and not known for their accuracy. For instance, we have heard from customers that their home test kits shows chlorine remaining in their water. The falsely high readings they experience are because the majority of these kits cannot distinguish between chlorine and chloride.

Our Omica Shower Filter uses the oxidation reduction process known as “redox” (an electro-chemical reaction) to transfer electrons between molecules, thus creating new elements. In this way, the structure of harmful contaminants are changed into harmless particles; the chlorine atoms are converted into benign chloride ions that wash safely down the drain.

For a true chlorine reading, please click on the lab report link below to see the results of expensive and sophisticated 3rd-party lab testing. You may notice that, for a truly accurate test, the lab increased the chlorine in the test samples to simulate that added by many municipalities. Results show that the Omica Filter can reduce up to 96% of chlorine in the water.
