New Shower Filter Technology Removes Chlorine

Chlorine's adverse health effects have prompted administrators of public water systems and owners of private and public swimming pools to explore less toxic methods of germ control. New technologies such as the use of ozone may eventually replace chlorine. In the meantime, consumers can rely on water filters. Whole-house systems can remove chlorine and various other contaminants from shower and bath water, but the simplest and most cost-effective solution is to install a filter for the showerhead and the bath faucet.

A new type of filter media, called KDF, has recently become available. This non-carbon based filtration media is made from a copper zinc alloy and works by attracting chloride ions and converting them to zinc chloride. Effective Turbo Shower and Bath Ball filters can remove chlorine to less than 0.1 ppm and reduce dirt, rust, and bad odors, leaving your shower water looking and smelling fresh and clean. The tub will also stay cleaner longer because the internal filter of the Turbo Shower and Bath Ball, called the PowerDisk filter, reduces lime scale, mold, and mildew deposits and helps to soften the water naturally—without salt. Plus, it is non-toxic and recyclable.

High-output showerhead filters are available with replaceable and reversible (meaning, able to operate in either direction) filter cartridges. Periodic reversing of the filter ensures balanced filtration and back-flushes the cartridge as it is filtering. For best results, filters need to be replaced annually or every 26,000 gallons.

It is very simple to install the Turbo Shower filter or Bath Ball--anyone can do it! It is also easy to change the filters. The shower filter fits any standard thread showerhead, and has a lifetime warranty on the housing.

Adding a filter to your showerhead and bath can make that long, hot shower or bath the pure pleasure it was meant to be.
