Benefits from Using the Premium Shower Filter:
What are the Effects of Chlorine in the Shower?
Chlorine is a toxic gas which attacks living cells. It was used during World War I as a chemical warfare agent. It is used today as a additive to drinking water to kill harmful micro-organisms. While this can be an important health benefit, chlorine itself is far from beneficial: it attacks organic material, such as the skin and skin oils, which dries out the skin and hair. Because chlorine vaporizes along with the hot water, it is inhaled into the lungs. It is also absorbed into the skin. According to some experts, five times more chlorine enters the body through the skin during a shower than enters through drinking 8 glasses of chlorinated tap water!
How Long Before I Notice Results?
Elimination of chlorine odor is immediate! 5 to 7 days are required for skin and hair to regain their natural balance.
How Does the Premium Shower Filter Work?
A patented mixture of zinc and copper called KDF-55, plus crystal quartz, converts chlorine into zinc chloride. Zinc is considered to be helpful in alleviating dandruff and is used in anti-dandruff shampoos. Unlike carbon, KDF stands up to hot water and is very effective in filtering out chlorine, odors and dirt particles. KDF possesses strong bacteriostatic character, inhibiting the growth of bacteria, fungus, algae and mildew. The Premium Shower Filter contains 16 oz. of KDF and 2 oz. of crystal Quartz for enhanced performance and natural water softening.
How Long will the Premium Shower Filter Last?
On average, the filter will last about one year. Initially, the filter will remove 98% of the chlorine. Over time, the removal percentage declines until it is at about 87% after one year. Accordingly, we recommend annual cartridge replacement. To make it easier to change the filter, we recommend soaking the entire unit in hot water (1 gallon) and white vinegar (1 tablespoon) for about 10-15 min. Take the unit out while it is still hot and turn it counter-clockwise.
