All municipal bodies add chlorine or chloramines in the water to control germs, and the leftover of these disinfectants cause many problems in our body. We will probably absorb more chlorine through bathing, than by drinking water!
It may seem hard to believe, but if you bathe, especially with warm water, which opens up the pores of the body, the chlorinated water comes in contact with a large part of the body, the entire skin and scalp. Water easily enters the blood stream, as it has a lower molecular weight. This has tremendous impact on the body, including carcinogenic affect. Risk of bladder, kidney and rectal cancers increases by the day. Poor birth rates, sudden abortion, low baby weight and even birth defects are common problems related to chlorinated water. Skin rashes and hairfall are also caused by the same. The free radicals of chlorinated water also reduces immunity power.
Chlorine also reacts with other matter commonly found in water to form harmful compounds like THMs (Trihalomethanes), which are primarily responsible for the above-mentioned ailments.
Along with chlorine, there may be other contaminants in water, like lead, arsenic, heavy metals, pesticides and many more.
Granular activated carbon is made from raw organic materials like coconut shells, wood etc that are high in carbon content. Heat, with little oxygen, is used to increase the surface area of the charcoal carbon. This is why these filters are sometimes called “charcoal” filters as well. The activated carbon removes certain chemicals that are dissolved in water passing through a filter this carbon material by trapping (adsorbing) the chemical in the GAC.
Solid carbon block filters are densely packed blocks of PAC and GAC particles of varying sizes. Water is forced through the pores of the carbon block, and as it travels through the filter, the tiny carbon particles remove a wide range of contaminants.
The primary advantage of block filters over GAC filters is the elimination of channeling. With carbon block filters, the carbon particles are stationary and every particle is used to maximum effectiveness. A wide range of contaminants is removed from the water — small pollutants are absorbed by the carbon, while larger impurities are too big to pass through the pores of the block and are left behind. Reason why, we use block activated carbon filters in our bathing filters.
In general, carbon filters remove more than 80 chemicals and are effective at reducing another over 50 contaminants. According to the EPA, activated carbon is the only filtering material that removes all 12 identified herbicides and 14 pesticides, along with all 32 identified organic contaminants.
Carbon block filters are capable of removing many more pollutants over their GAC counterparts, including heavy metals such as lead, in a far more efficient manner. Carbon block filters also remove microbiological contaminants from water, including waterborne pathogens. This is the reason why they are widely used in all drinking water purifiers. The best carbon block filters reduce pollutants like chlorine, chlorides, arsenic, asbestos, mercury, and radon.
You get the very best of water for bathing, free of chlorine, heavy metals and other contaminants.
This water is best for your baby's bath, whether you use warm or cool water. Free of all common contaminants, and as close to pure natural water as possible. Give your baby a healthy start.
"Breast cancer, which now effects one in every eight women in North America, has recently been linked to the accumulation of chlorine compounds in the breast tissue. A study carried out in Hartford Connecticut, the first of its kind in North America, found that, “women with breast cancer have 50% to 60% higher levels of organochlorines (chlorination byproducts) in their breast tissue than women without breast cancer."
Shower filter is highly effective for people who have sensitive skin, and for those who experience hair loss during/after every bath. Just install a shower filter from us, and see the difference.
We also suggest you consider attaching Baby Bath Water Filter as a pre filter to your existing water filter and for cooking water, as it works on the same principle and helps you drink chlorine free water.
Our filters will only require a cartridge change, once in months. Cartridge change is simple, and can be done by hand or by the supplied special spanner. Remember to order for spare cartridge when you order for your product.
If your water is also heavy in iron, leaving reddish or yellowish stains, then consider ordering the two level, iron removal+active carbon filter, for best results.
Requires no installation, easy self maintenance. You also have the option of hanging them in the bathroom wall.
