Chlorine and your Shower
Removing chlorine from your shower will improve the condition of your hair and skin within one week. It will also improve your health.
"A long, hot shower can be dangerous. The toxic chemicals are inhaled in high concentrations."
From: Bottom Line; Dr. John Andelman, PhD.
"Water is chlorinated to kill microorganisms, but the Chlorine also kills the healthy probiotic bacteria in the intestines."
From: Restoring Your Digestive Health; Jordan S. Rubin, N.MD., PhD.
"Avoiding contact with chlorinated water is of the utmost importance. This includes bathing water and drinking water. Chlorine kills bacteria, friendly and unfriendly, in the intestines. It can be absorbed through the skin. I recomend installing a shower filter to remove Chlorine."
From: Patient, Heal Thyself; Jordan S. Rubin, N.MD., PhD.
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?
- Smoother skin - your skin won't dry out as much.
- 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.
Premium Shower Filter- Installation and Operation
- Unscrew and remove the existing shower head from the shower arm (1/2 in. pipe).
- To minimze water drips, wrap the included teflon tape around the shower arm and the filter (optional).
- Screw the Premium Shower Filter onto the shower arm and screw the shower head onto the Shower Filter. Hand Tighten Only- overtightening can crack the filter housing.
- The Premium Shower Filter is now ready for use. Simply turn on the water as usual. The very first time the Shower Filter is used, the water may take a minute or so to flow through.
- Whenever the Premium Shower Filter is opened to replace the cartridge, the o-rings that keep the filter from leaking should be properly seated in their channels, and rubbed with petroluem jelly to keep them supple. Petroluem jelly can also be used on the threads of the housing.
The Premium Shower Filter housing is warranted for 1 year from date of purchase for defects or cracks. The filter cartridge is warranted for one year from any manufacturing malfunction. The useful life of the filter cartridge varies depending on water conditions and usage and therefore cannnot be under warranty for usage.

Questions about the Premium Shower Filtration System
- From Ted K at 2/15/12 4:06 AM
- I have seen similar filters at the big box stores. They are limited to a shower head flow rate of 2.5 gpm. Is this unit OK for use on a 1.5 gpm shower head?
- Yes. The Premium Shower Filtration System will work with a 1.5 GPM shower head without reducing the flow.
- Do you find this question helpful? Yes No

- Does this filter fit onto earth massage shower head?
- Yes. You can use an Earth Massage shower head with the Premium Shower Filtration System. You would unscrew the old shower head, then screw in the Premium filter, then screw the showerhead on to the filter. It is a simple installation.
