Chlorine is universally used to chemically disinfect water. It kills germs, bacteria and other living organisms. Chlorine readily passes through the cell wall and attaches to the fatty acids of the cell, disrupting the life sustaining functions. The human body is composed of billions of cells. Most people are aware that the quality of their drinking water can be improved by filtering their tap water or buying bottled water. However, many do not realize that they are addressing only a part of the problem. One half of our daily chlorine exposure is from showering. Chlorine is not only absorbed through the skin, but also re-vaporized in the shower, inhaled into the lungs, and transferred directly into the blood system. In fact, the chlorine exposure from one shower is equal to an entire day's amount of drinking the same water. Drinking filtered or bottled water only does half the job. For people who are concerned about their health and beauty,
Sprite Filtered Showers are an affordable solution!
10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE A SHOWER FILTER
1. Shower filters are one of the easiest and most effective ways of reducing harmful exposure to chlorine and other chemicals.
2. By showering in filtered water you benefit from greater respiratory health by reducing the risk of asthma and bronchitis from chlorine inhalation.
3. When you shower in chlorine-free, filtrered water you lessen the risk of bladder and breast cancer.
4. Chlorine inhalation can prove particularly harmful to children who will especially benefit in the long run from the removal of chlorine.
5. Showering in filtered, chlorine-free water brings higher energy and overall greater health becuase chlorine is a major cause of fatigue.
6. Eliminating chlorine from showering water can result in better air quality throughout the house.
7. Your skin will become softer, healthier and younger looking because chlorine has a drying effect on the skin.
8. To help reduce the presence of skin rashes and the appearance of wrinkles chlorine-free shower water is beneficial.
9. Hair becomes softer and healthier because the hair retains its natural mousturising oils when chlorine is removed from the shower water.
10. The need for costly lotions and moisturisers is greatly reduced, when the body is able to retain its natural moisturisers.
Shower filters are easy to install and very affordable. We recommend sprite shower filters as they are the leaders in shower filtration with proven results.
Chlorgon & KDF - The only non-carbon filtering
media to remove:
Since chlorination is a long established public health practice necessary for the disinfection of drinking water, consumers are aware of the health benefit drinking filtered water can provide. However, it's surprising for some people to learn that 50% of their daily exposure is in the shower. The other 50% comes from their drinking water. Therefore, filtering shower water is equally as important, as filtering drinking water.
Documented scientific studies conclude that taking long hot showers is a health risk. In the enclosed shower stall, chlorine vaporizes where it is inhaled. To a lesser degree, dermal absorption also occurs. As chlorine is added to kill pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, the highly reactive chlorine combines with fatty acids and carbon fragments to form a variety of toxic compounds. Medical studies suggest a link between absorption and inhalation of chlorine in the shower environment, with elevated risks for diseases and serious illnesses. Showering in chlorinated water may also cause pre-existing conditions, such as asthma and eczema, to become exacerbated.
In addition to health benefits of filtering water, there are cosmetic benefits. Symptoms of chlorine exposure are dry and/or flaking skin, dry brittle hair and red irritated eyes. Filtering the shower water reduces these symptoms. Skin and hair feel softer and eyes become less red and irritated.
SPRITE's filtration technology makes
Sprite shower filters work on a similar principle to a Catalytic Converter in an automobile. In shower filtration free-chlorine is converted into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this chemical reaction is known as "Reduction-Oxidation", commonly referred to as Redox.
Redox reactions can be chemically complex. Simply stated, during a Redox reaction electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new elements. For instance, when free-chlorine comes in contact with the filtration media, it is changed into a benign, water-soluble chloride. This reaction changes free-chlorine to a larger chloride element. Too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the skin. It is then carried harmlessly through the water supply.
Redox Filtration Medias
Kinetic Degreadation Fluxion, or KDF, is another type of Redox filtration media. Researched, developed and patented by Don Heskett, founder of KDF fluid treatment, KDF converts free chlorine to a harmless chloride. This media of high-purity copper-zinc formulations is used in pretreatment, primary treatment, and wastewater applications. Patented KDF process media are 100 percent recyclable and contain no chemical additives. Hospitals, restaurants, municipal water treatment facilities, and homes rely on KDF process media to safely reduce or remove free chlorine, iron oxides and hydrogen sulfide.
All Sprite filtered shower products contain both Chlorgon, and KDF filtration medias.
Advanced Water Filtration's shower and bath filters range is supplied by the Sprite industries USA. We have a wide array of shower and bath filters that range from replacement cartridges to shower filters.
All Sprite shower filters use energy saving heads and Chlorgon KDF filtration technology. Chlorgon is a non carbon media which helps remove chlorine at a wider temperature range than any other shower filtration media. Chlorgon in conjunction with KDF filtration media can remove many contaminants. Some of these contaminants are listed below:
An additional benefit of using KDF filtration media is that it prevents the growth of mould and other bacteria. What this means is that you end up with a shower filter that helps protect you from the water contaminants.
