For many years, researchers believed exposure to disinfection byproducts came only when chlorine was swallowed. But studies now show how drinking the water is not the only risk. Absorption into your body by the body’s largest organ, your skin, during showers and baths is a major contributor to chlorine exposure.
Did you know:
• On average, you drink about 1-2 gallons of water per day, but you expose yourself to about 25 gallons of water when you shower.
• According to the American Journal of Public Health, up to two-thirds of harmful chlorine exposure can be due to skin absorption and inhalation while showering.
• The steam inhaled during a shower can contain up to 20 times the concentration of chlorine (and other synthetic chemicals) as tap water.
• You can easily absorb as many toxins in one shower as you would drinking tap water for an entire week.
• Studies show that after a 10-minute shower in chlorinated water, your blood levels of THMs (common disinfection byproduct – DBP) can potentially increase by as much as a staggering 700%.
The bottom line is chlorine and related byproducts are an unseen risk in almost every shower.
The extraordinary features and benefits of the Pure & Clear Shower Filter:
• Like showering in natural spring water- Patented 2-stage filtration unit removes and reduces chlorine by 90%, DBPs (THMs), VOCs, heavy metals, and other contaminants from your shower water.
• Softer skin and hair in 1 week – See and feel softer skin and hair as little as 7 days. And if you color your hair, less chlorine and other contaminants in the shower water help reduce your coloring frequency.
• Easy-to-install – Shower filtration system installs in minutes without special tools or complex plumbing. And due to its design, it fits most existing shower configurations and does not require adjustment to shower head height.
• Maintains free-flowing water – Filtration unit, with its unique 'upflow' design, does not clog or noticeably impede water pressure.
• Looks attractive in your shower – High-gloss finish and small size add to its appealing appearance in your shower.
The Pure & Clear Shower Filter multi-stage filtration process works as follows…
- Stage 1 – Removes chlorine and enhances pH balance with a natural copper/zinc mineral media called KDF-55D
- Stage 2 – Uses a carbonized coconut shell medium to remove synthetic chemicals, THMs (DBPs), and VOCs that vaporize from your shower water.
Your filter only requires replacement every 6 months, with the Shower Filter Replacement Cartridge (SFR2000). Extra cartridge not included.
