    Question regarding Bakki Showers

    I've heard about the efficiency of Bakki Showers, how do they work and how do you build your own?

    Yes, shower filters work.

    See DIY Bakki Shower for one example on how to make your own.

    There are definitely dealers who will build you a shower in plastic, stainless, filberglass...etc. I think building a shower is one of the simplier DIY projects. Drilling all the holes is easy...just time consuming.

    This is not exactly new technology.

    There are "shower filters" and "Bakki shower filters".

    There is the genuine Bakki shower, the "copy cat" Bakki shower with or without the "Bakki House media", and basic shower filters like Aquatic Eco-System's Degassing Column and my DIY shower filter made out of a 12 inch x 7 foot tall PVC pipe column filled with plastic bio-media.

    Current Bakki shower concepts

    Kookiblob, shower filters are evolving.
    Here are two new concepts from opposite sides of the U.S.

    Deepwater Koi Innovations Low Head Shower Filter

    New Shower Filter

    bcboy,

    It would depend on what kind of media you are using.
    Trickle/shower filters do process more nitrogenous waste that does submerged media.
