Easy as 1, 2, 3!
I've heard the water quality in Germany is supposed to be the best in the world, but I was shocked when I checked my sediment filter after only a few weeks. There were not only discoloration and sand, but also stone and some particles I don't even know how to describe!!!!!!!!
Living in Copenhagen showering in very hard water, it gave me dry skin and hair ends, but it has helped alot using the shower head! Also, no more coloring from ocher on the shower curtain 🧖🏼♀️
This product is now a necessity in my eyes. The question in no longer "Why should I purchase this?", but rather " Why would you ever consider not purchasing it?". Didn't believe this till I saw what my filter looked like after a few weeks of use in Berlin. This filter caught debris I didn't know was in my water! Tiny shards of metal and even a curly hair once, ew!
Since moving to Berlin, I’ve suffered with painful eczema on my face and scalp. I tried every cream, ointment, remedy, and saw several dermatologists before a friend suggested that the harsh water in Berlin was the likely cause of my skin issues and recommended I try a shower filter. I tried a different brand (Hello Klean) and noticed no difference. I then discovered the Picki Niki and within a few days my skin calmed down, and my hair softened. This product changed my life!
I have been using the sediment handle filter after looking a while for a good solution. I live in a city where the water is really full of limestone. And, on top of that, my building has super old rusty pipes. I can really see how much the filter is takes away by all the rust that I see on it after some weeks.
Also, saving water for the planet! With the filter, I use less water with super good pressure. So if you live in an old building with low pressure, that's also a great solution for you!

The two head filters have different functions.
The sediment head filter would be an additional step for removing physical impurities of all kinds:
- dirt and rust particles
- heavy metals (iron, copper, lead)
The vitamin head filter has the extra function of infusing the shower water with vitamin C for neutralizing of residual chlorine and limescale. (Read “How it works” here) Furthermore, it also infuses shower water with vitamin C, collagen, and glycerin to moisturize skin and hair. No more dry and itchy skin after shower. :D
The sediment head filter would be the cheaper option, but you miss out on:
- neutralizing residual chlorine and limescale
- an aromatherapy spa experience at home
- collagen and glycerin for no more dry or itchy skin after showering
OUR RECOMMENDATION: You might think about going for the sediment head filter, if:
- you live in an area with soft water and limescale is no problem
- your local utilities providers use no chlorine for water treatment (rare in big cities, check your local utilities providers website)
- you want the cleanest water for your baby AND don’t want anything else in there. (All our vitamin gel ingredients are all natural and safe, but we understand if you want just the cleanest water possible. You can also use the unscented vitamin filter if you want to be on the safe and use vitamin filter without fragrance.)
Replacement is recommended each:
vitamin filter: 1 month
handle/head filter: 2-3 months
Be aware: The replacement cycle may vary depending on temperature and amount of water used, water quality environment in each home, and the condition of the water pipes. You can check the condition of the filter in the shower head through the indicators.
Our sediment filters clean out foreign substances without ALWAYS leaving visible traces or changing color (mostly to brown because of rust particles). Throughout the filtering process, small particles can clog up the dense filter fiber.
If the water pressure decreases a lot, it is time to replace the sediment filter even though it might still look “fine”.
