How to Filter Hard Water from an Apartment Shower with a Jolie

Discover how to combat hard water in your apartment shower with Jolie Filtered Showerheads. Say goodbye to mineral buildup for a cleaner experience!

If you know anything about Jolie Skin Co and the Jolie Filtered Showerhead, you’ve undoubtedly heard of hard water and its detrimental effects on your skin, hair, and bathroom fixtures. Hard water contains high levels of dissolved minerals, primarily calcium and magnesium. As it flows through pipes and into your shower, these minerals can leave behind residue, resulting in a chalky buildup or scale on showerheads, faucets, and tiles. This buildup can affect the water pressure, leading to reduced flow, and cause unsightly stains or spots on shower surfaces. In a small apartment, hard water can be particularly noticeable due to the compact space and limited ventilation, which makes mineral deposits more likely to accumulate and harder to clean. This buildup can also impact your skin and hair, leading to dryness and irritation and reducing the effectiveness of shampoos and soaps due to reduced lather. Additionally, hard water can shorten the lifespan of plumbing fixtures in small apartments, resulting in higher maintenance costs over time. However, if you have indeed heard of the Jolie Filtered Showerhead, you know there is a simple and easy solution to all these issues.


Assessing Your Apartment's Water Situation

Identifying signs of hard water in your shower involves looking for common indicators like chalky or white mineral deposits on showerheads, faucets, and tiles. You might also notice persistent soap scum on shower walls or doors, as hard water can reduce soap's ability to lather and rinse off. Other signs include reduced water pressure as mineral buildup clogs showerhead nozzles. 

While these signs are pretty clear indications that you’re a hard water sufferer, you can get a better idea of just how bad your situation is with a water hardness test kit, which measures the levels of calcium and magnesium in your water. These kits are widely available and provide a simple way to determine if hard water is affecting your shower. 

Introducing Jolie: Your Solution to Hard Water Woes

The Jolie FIltered Showerhead is the industry leader in filtering your shower water of all its impurities, including hard water minerals and chemicals like chlorine. The filtration concept is simple enough; by using a proprietary blend of filtration mediums, namely KDF-55 and calcium sulfate, the Jolie Filtered Showerhead uses your water pressure to force your hot water through its filter and trap any and all impurities that might be affecting you and your bathroom fixtures alike. With a Jolie Filtered Showerhead, you can enjoy consistent water pressure and avoid mineral buildup on showerheads, faucets, and tiles, making your shower environment cleaner and requiring less frequent maintenance. The filtered water helps prevent skin irritation and keeps hair soft and manageable by preserving its natural oils. In the long run, this showerhead can also save you money by extending the life of your plumbing fixtures and reducing the need for costly repairs or replacements.

The Jolie Filtered Showerhead: Installation and Setup

Installing a Jolie is about the simplest plumbing job anyone could do. The Jolie Showerhead is universally fitted to all modern shower pipes, so if your building is particularly old, it is worth checking whether or not your current showerhead can be easily changed. If the answer is yes, the installation is as easy as possible.

Step 1: Remove Your Old Showerhead

After ensuring your shower is off, your old showerhead should unscrew counterclockwise. After removing it, check for the plumber’s tape residue and clean the threads on the pipe of any debris.

Step 2: Apply Just Enough New Plumber’s Tape

Every Jolie comes with just enough plumber’s tape to ensure an easy, leak-free seal. Apply the tape as tightly as possible around the threads of the pipes.

Step 3: Screw on Your New Jolie Showerhead

Once the plumber’s tape is applied, all that’s left to do is screw on your new Jolie! The filter comes installed when the showerhead is shipped to you, so once it’s been screwed on, run some water through it to make sure that it’s properly sealed and not leaking.

That’s it! You’re done! All that’s left is to change your filter periodically, which is also about as easy as possible.

The Jolie is scientifically proven- it’s consistently ranked #1 in the hair care category of, and has been tested by multiple independent, third-party labs for effectiveness. But real people just like you have taken to the internet to sing Jolie’s praises as well:
“I haven't had a chance to use the replacement filter just yet. We ordered the shower head many months ago but only just installed it since our bathroom was behind schedule for remodeling. We have a glass walk-in shower and I can clearly see the difference between when we use the regular shower head and when we use the Jolie shower head. Jolie doesn't leave watermarks on the glass or sediment. My husband says he can feel a difference on his skin and his hair—it's softer. I noticed my skin doesn't feel so tight and dry as it did before I had the Jolie shower head.”

“We bought a new home and I could immediately smell the chlorine in the water. Decided we definitely needed a filter and that smell of chlorine is gone so it definitely works! Really happy with this product . I installed myself which says A LOT on how easy it is to do it yourself, ladies! This filter has kept my hair color—no brassy strands here.”
