How do shower filters work?

Free chlorine is converted to harmless chloride (salt) as it passes through the filter. Iron oxide or rust/ brown water on the other hand deposits onto the filtration media, where it will remain until the next shower. It is recommended to flush or run the shower filter with warm water for a minute or two at the beginning of each shower to “reset” the media and flush away the ions. If there is a high concentration of iron oxide in your water, a whole of house filtration system designed specifically for iron removal may best suit your needs.
