Vitamin-C Shower Filters utilises ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) chemistry for dechlorination. As the water passes through the filter, ascorbic acid reacts rapidly, neutralising chlorine, chloramines and other harmful substances such as trihalomethanes into harmless compounds.  There is a little turbine fan that circulates the water near the top of the filter and allows the right amount of Vitamin C to be released to neutralise these harmful chemicals before the water comes out of your shower head. This unique process makes SONAKI Vitamin C filters the most efficient and economical shower filters available.

SONAKI uses the finest, quality food grade Vitamin-C. One Vitamin C cartridge contains the equivalent of 500 oranges.

Vitamin-C is the safest and least toxic of dechlorination medias. It not only fully neutralises both chlorine and chloramines but also provides additional nutrients for the skin and hair.

Vitamin C filters are also environmentally friendly and the Vitamin-C shower filter works for any water temperature (hot or cold), any water pressure (high or low).

Other filters such as activated carbon filters eliminate chlorine only under 15℃ and loses its function of chlorine elimination in between 15℃~32℃. When the water is hotter than 32℃, a carbon filter cannot perform its function at all, and  KDF does not remove chloramines and is ineffective at lower water pressure.

Your SONAKI LOTUS Vitamin C shower changes the molecular structure of the water, not only making water softer but generates 250,000cc negative ions.
They are beneficial to your health and are found near waterfalls, pine forest and rivers. Essentially in the places we feel good after visiting.  Now you can have these in your shower.

Absolutely. The overall patented shower system increases the water pressure and doesn’t make you feel like you are on a water diet.

Definitely not. With so many people suffering form allergies and other sensitivities, purchasing a product that may present a problem is not our aim. Our product is good for everyone- no exclusions. If a fish can’t live in our shower water, we’re not selling it.

Yes, if you already have a hand held shower at your home, you simply remove the existing shower head from the hose and replace it with a SONAKI shower head. Takes under a minute.
To accommodate those who you don’t have a hand held shower system, we have a full set with easy installation instructions on the box. It takes under 10 minutes, less time than it takes to have a shower. Difficulty 2/10.

No, installation is quick and easy. But you may require a common shifter to remove your old existing wall bracket and tighten the hose fitting.

It is not a problem as there is no drilling/screwing involved. You simply put aside the existing shower system, then when you move on you put the old one back on and keep yours to take to your next place.

The Vitamin C shower does not need any maintenance. You just need to install it and enjoy chlorine free showers.

If some of the spray holes in the shower head become clogged over a period of use and are blocking the water flow, we recommend soaking your SONAKI Vitamin C shower head in a CLR (Calcium, lime and rust) solution. Your shower head will be like new again. Please follow the instructions as directed on the product.

Because the Vitamin-C shower filter case is transparent, you can actually see the crystals dissolve until all that remains is water in the cartridge. When that happens you know when to change your filter.

Take the shower head in your hand and unscrew the top portion anticlockwise.  Once you do that put the shower head down. Have the filter case facing down and hit it against your cupped hand a few times until the filter pops out.  If it still won’t budge use pliers to pull it out (This is generally not necessary).  Insert a new one in its place without forcing it in, so it is easier to remove next time.  After doing it once you will be an expert.

One cartridge can filter around 10,000 litres, which typically lasts about 6-8 weeks, depending on the frequency and duration of use.  To help you better understand, below is an example.

Three people showering with the SONAKI LOTUS (6.1 L/minute) at a duration of 10 minutes per day =7.9 weeks till replacement is due.
Note. When you replace your last filter, make a note to re-order.

No. Based on the above example it works out to be around $1.50 per week for 3-4 people, costing much  less than washing your car.  Let’s not forget that you will save more than that on water and energy.

Chlorine and chloramines are the most widely used disinfectant for drinking water in Australia.  Some water supply authorities also use chlorine dioxide, ozone and/or UV irradiation. An important thing to note is that all these disinfectants generate by-products.

By definition, chlorine is a chemical element with symbol Cl and atomic number 17.  Chlorine is a non-metallic element occurring naturally as a poisonous, greenish-yellow gas with an irritating, pungent odour, and it is a powerful oxidant. You can write a 5000 word essay but simply, chlorine is bleach.

Chloramines (as CI2) are water additives used to control microbes, particularly as a residual disinfectant in the distribution system pipes. This disinfectant is formed by mixing chlorine with ammonia.

During the water treatment process, chlorine reacts with organic material in the water. It forms new toxic substances called Disinfection By-Products (DBPs) that remain in the treated water.  They are known to be more harmful than chlorine itself.

The two main DBP’s formed when chlorine is used to treat the water are trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). These by-products such as THMs and HAAs produce free radicals in the body, which trigger cell and tissue damage inside our body, and are highly carcinogenic.

You are exposed to these chemicals whenever you use water treated with chlorine or chloramines. This includes drinking chlorinated water, swimming, other activities such as cleaning your house with any household cleaners and breathing in water vapour when you take a shower.  Of all these, the main exposure to these chemicals is inhalation of steam and skin absorption when you take a shower. You can absorb more chlorine and dangerous DBPs in a 10 minute shower than by drinking eight full glasses of the very same water.


Yes. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and National Risk Management Research Laboratory have demonstrated that Vitamin C is the SAFEST and FASTEST dechlorination agent.

Yes.  It has been used in EPA and APHA methods for dechlorinating lab samples. In the medical industry, it is the standard for critical applications such as dialysis, where the introduction of chlorinated water or toxic chemical would be catastrophic.


“WELS is Australia’s water efficiency labelling scheme. It allows consumers to compare the water efficiency of different products by requiring that certain products have water rating labels at the point of sale or display/advertising. All WELS products must be registered with the regulator, rated and labelled according the requirements of the WELS Standard AS/NZS6400:2005 Water-efficient products-Rating and labelling.”  It is similar to ENERGY ratings when you buy electrical goods. It is also against the Law to sell/advertise shower products without a water mark and WELS rating.
