A shower head filter removes chlorine before it comes into contact with your skin. It’s important especially if you have sensitive eyes and skin. It’s also a good way to prevent the possible health effects of long-term exposure to chlorine.
Although chlorine is truly an effective chemical to kill microorganisms, it can also be harsh on the human skin and the eyes. In addition, inhalation of the chlorine might cause irritation to some people. That’s why many Sydney families already have a shower filter in their homes.
Why it’s a wise investment?
Shower head filters are affordable and can be effective for a year. They can filter up to 70,000 litres of water (which is more than enough for the whole family in a year).
It’s a small investment in exchange for daily protection of the whole family. This is true especially during the summer days when we might be taking a shower more than once a day.
Why chlorine should be removed?
For over a hundred years, modern societies have been using chlorine for water disinfection. It’s effective in killing E. coli, Salmonella and other microorganisms. The chemical also provides continued protection and disinfection (some of the chlorine still remains in the water supply after treatment).
That’s why when we take a shower, the chlorine is still there. It can come into contact with our skin or we inhale some of it (especially during hot water conditions). The chlorine can cause allergies and irritations. It can also aggravate some skin conditions such as acne and eczema.
In addition, chlorine can combine with other chemicals present in the water. Most of them might only be present in minute amounts. However, consider the long-term exposure from these disinfection by-products and the chlorine itself. The health effects can truly accumulate.
Benefits of shower filters
That’s why shower filters are now common bathroom fixtures today. They help prevent allergies and irritations caused by chlorine inhalation. The skin is also protected from the harmful chlorine.
Chlorine-free bath water can also help make hair and skin healthier. You put less strain on your skin on keeping itself healthy. You might be delaying some of the aging processes this way.
