De-Chlorinator Premium Shower Filter. In-line and Fits Standard Shower Sizes. What is the Effect 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, 5 times more Chlorine enters the body through the skin during a shower than enters through drinking 8 glasses of chlorinated tap water! What are the Benefits of Using the Premium Shower Filter? Moister, smoother skin- less itching, requires less moisturizer healthier hair- less brittle, fewer split ends, deeper, longer lasting color for dyed or highlighted hair Eliminates chlorine odor from skin and hair Prevents breathing Chlorine gas or its absorption into skin Stops burning around the eyes of Chlorine-sensitive people 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. 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.
Replacement filter cartridges are available from the retailer where the filter was purchased, or can be ordered from Greener Country 1-877-680-6010.
