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 ones shower is equal to an entire day's amount of drinking the same water. Drinking filtered water only does some of the job. For people concerned about their health and beauty, the CWR Shower & Bath Tub filters are an affordable solution.
FILTER MEDIA USED IN CWR’S SHOWER FILTERS
The filter media is a proprietary blend of copper, zinc and calcium sulfide. It is a type of Redox filtration media that converts free chlorine to a harmless chloride salt that washes away when showering.
The shower filter media removes:
- Free Chlorine (Cl-)
- Combined Chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite)
- Hydrogen Sulfide
- Iron Oxide (Rust Water)
- Dirt, sediment
The High Output Shower Filter is listed to standard 177 for shower filtration Flow rate for High Output is 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm) free chlorine reduction
Why Not Carbon?
Carbon is an excellent filtration media when used under the right conditions, such as, in drinking water filters like the Crown Water Filter Series. However, carbon drinking filters are designed to filter cold water, and under much less pressure than a shower exerts.
