- PURIFY YOUR
SHOWER OR BATH!
by Jon David Miller, wellness educator
An effective shower filter or shower purifier will first and foremost give you a chlorine free shower or bath. If lead, bacteria, algae, and mildew are problems these should be addressed as well.
A shower unit can also be used to fill the bath tub with pure water, if needed. We also have a bath water filter if you prefer bathing.
You don't want toxins in your shower or bath any more than you'd want to drink them. Why not have a safe shower or a safe bath?
A shower or bath seems refreshing and invigorating, but if you do it in raw impure tap water, you are probably being exposed to a level of toxic pollutants that can have a negative impact on your health. A pure shower or bath is just as important as pure water to drink.
Harmful chemicals present in your unpurified water can be readily absorbed by the skin, and the volatile ones can easily become inhalable vapors as the warm water spray forms steam. Day after day these toxify your body and harm your lungs.
Virtually all cities use chlorine or chloramines to reduce bacteria and algae in their water. Many wells are also chlorinated. Chlorine is antiseptic, but also a serious poison, which over the years has killed millions early.
Chlorine in our water is a major contributor to the leading deadly health problems -- circulatory disease and cancer. Chlorine forms free radicals which damage tissue, especially the vulnerable arteries and the heart. Not only are circulatory tissues effected, but any tissue under stress is more susceptible to deterioration and possible cancer.
When chlorine combines with natural organic matter from leaves, humus & soil in the source water, trihalomethanes (THM's) are formed. These are more toxic than chlorine alone. The most harmful THM is chloroform, a known carcinogen which causes liver & kidney damage and depression of the central nervous system.Chlorine vaporizes in hot shower water and, when inhaled in the lungs, is transferred into the blood stream. Scientific studies have linked chlorinated water to potentially harmful by-products that can, over time, contribute to such health threatening conditions as cancer of the bladder, liver, stomach and colon. Heart disease, high blood pressure and allergies have also been linked with chlorine.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), THM's are present in all chlorinated water supplies in the U.S. EPA scientist, Lance Wallace states, "Showering is suspected as the primary cause of elevated levels of chloroform in nearly every home in America, because of the chlorine in the water."
A normal adult taking a 15 minute shower or bath would be exposed to up to twice as much of a volatile chemical as from drinking two quarts of the same raw water. Neither should be done!
More and more cities are now using chloramines, a compound of chlorine and ammonia, to disinfect the water. When diluted, it is more stable and longer lasting than chlorine, although not as effective against microbes. It is also a toxic irritant to humans.
Chlorine in the shower, or chlorine in the bath, is terrible for the sinuses, lungs, skin and hair. When this toxin is taken further into the body, internal organs and tissues are harmed.
A study by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Quality Engineering, published in the American Journal of Public Health, found that 29 to 46 percent of water pollutant contamination in children, and 50 to 70 percent in adults, occurs through the skin, depending on the chemical and its concentration.Unfiltered shower and bath water can double exposure to chlorine by absorption through the skin and by inhalation of chlorine vapors.
Get Rid Of Chlorine, Chloramines and Other Toxins Now!
The solution is to use an effective shower purifier (which can also be used to fill the bath tub) or a bath purifier.
Redox alloy is a popular purifying media made of copper & zinc. It will eliminate chlorine in the shower or bath, and also heavy metals like lead, mercury and iron, even in hot water. Beyond that redox media takes care of bacteria, algae and mildew, keeping the shower and/or tub cleaner.
Our shower and bath purifiers can help reduce the risks of chlorine exposure so you can breathe easier. Further, redox reduces smelly sulfur.
Softer Skin and Hair
Enjoy softer skin and hair and eliminate the burning eyes, itching skin, irritated lungs and allergies caused by showering with chlorinated water.
Our shower and bath filters condition the water and take care of chlorine, for softer hair and smoother skin. Now you can fight brittle hair, dry skin and dandruff where health and beauty begin right in your shower and bath.
The conditioned water leaves hair more manageable. Less soap or shampoo is required. Perms and hair color treatments last longer.
Eliminating chlorine helps to prevent rashes, dryness, and other skin problems; hair loss; lung irritation from chlorine byproducts; and more.
Granular Activated Carbon in addition to the redox media will take care of chloramines (which redox does not) in those cities where chloramines are used.
Sulfur based compounds, including calcium sulfite and sodium sulfite, are also often added to city water. We do not need more sulfites added to our water cycle; and these have toxifying qualities of their own.
Many shower filters are offered for sale without even informing the prospective customer of what is in the unit. Further, a general statement that the unit will be effective for a year does not account for the quantity and qualities of the water that may pass through the product.
Shower & Bath Purifiers
Remove Chlorine & Other Toxins From Your Shower or Bath
Luxury Shower Purifier
(for chlorine &/or heavy metals, algae, mold, mildew &/or bacteria in city or well water)
This Luxury Shower Purifier has significantly more of the redox media (more than 1 pound) than other similar brands.
Redox removes lead, mercury & other heavy metals; eliminates chlorine; and prevents bacteria, algae, mold, mildew & more.
It will take care of up to 99% of chlorine for over a year of showering for two people averaging a 10 minute shower per day each.
The Luxury Shower Purifier has been professionally designed by experts for an unrestricted flow-through that maximizes exposure and contact time of the water with the advanced redox media, while maintaining a constant water flow.
This new design is able to handle a modest amount of sediment without slowing or clogging as others do.
The Luxury Shower Filter is the best choice where chlorine AND/OR algae, mold mildew, bacteria, hydrogen sulfide, iron or other heavy metals are concerns, especially well water with any of these problems.
(NOTE: The unit may have a shorter life where significant hydrogen sulfide, iron or other heavy metals are present.)
~ The effective life of the media in any shower filter or purifier depends on the number and duration of showers, and the flow rate of the shower head used. (At the 2.5 gallons per minute flow of the standard shower head, a 5 minute shower would use 12.5 gallons, while a 10 minute shower would consume 25 gallons.)
At two 10 minute showers per day or four five minute showers per day, the suggested usage of the shower purifier cartridge is around a year. For a larger family of long shower takers, it would be better to change the filter in about 6 months.
~ The redox media in the Luxury Shower Purifier unit meet the requirements of the EPA's Clean Water Act as a dechlorinating agent, as does the Granular Activated Carbon, which also removes chloramines.
~ Redox media is also recognized by the EPA as a "pesticidal device", which means it has the ability to kill algae, bacteria, fungus, mold, and many other parasites found in drinking water supplies, through the natural process known as "electrochemical oxidation/reduction".
~ This shower unit is EASY to install -- just screw it by hand onto the shower arm (the pipe on which you would otherwise place the shower head), then screw your shower head or the hose of your hand held unit or other apparatus onto the other end. No tools are necessary. For baths, simply direct the shower head downward to fill the tub, running the water a little hotter.
~ Because the filter is light in weight, it won't cause stress on existing plumbing hardware.
~ A wonderful massaging shower head is also available for just a few dollars more.
~ Outstanding as a gift for a birthday, wedding, house-warming, holiday, etc.
