What is the makeup of filtering media inside VivaSpring Filtered Shower Heads?
VivaSpring uses 100% copper-zinc (KDF) filtration media. KDF is a high-purity brass water filtration process that relies on the redox potential of dissolved oxygen in water to dissolve impurities.
How does KDF filtration work?
KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion) process media is a high-purity copper-zinc granule that reduces contaminants in water using an oxidation/reduction or redox. VivaSpring’s KDF media exchanges electrons with contaminants, transforming them into harmless elements. During these reactions, electrons are transferred between molecules and new, benign elements are created.
