Protecting yourself from the harmful effects of chlorine and other chemicals in drinking water is the reason why most people install a water filter. However, many don’t realise the negative effects this volatile chemical causes on the body’s largest organs – our skin and lungs.
“Taking long hot showers is a health risk…… Showers, and to a lesser extent baths, lead to a greater exposure to toxic chemicals contained in water supplies than does drinking it. The chemicals evaporate out of the water and are inhaled. They can also spread through the house and be inhaled by others. House holders can receive 6 to 100 times more of the chemical by breathing the air around showers and bath than they would by drinking the water.”
Chlorine & Hot Water
Hot water quickly opens up the pores of our skin and we end up absorbing more chlorinated chemicals, up to 600% more, than we would from drinking un-filtered water all day. Chlorine, a mild bleach, kills off the beneficial bacteria found on the surface of our skin, whcih in turn reduces our body’s natural defence against skin disorders.
Many times simply installing a shower filter gives our body’s natural healing mechanisms a chance to work and helps to prevent or reduce the incidence of these conditions. Further, chlorine in steam contaminates the air we breathe and penetrates directly into our lungs. This can effect some people, most notably expectant mothers and the elderly who often feel breathless or dizzy after long, hot showers – essentially they have been drugged!
Outperform & Outlast Ordinary Filters
The Wellness Shower outperforms most ordinary shower filters, which often degrade to the point of ineffectiveness after only a few months, by reducing chlorine up to an amazing 97% for approximately 18-24 months.
To be as effective as a Wellness Shower most lower priced shower filters would need to be replaced every 3 to 4 months – this one advantage leads to incredible savings!
There are two key reasons why a Wellness Shower exceeds the performance and life-span of cheaper shower filters; 1. Advanced Media We use advanced KDF-55 and 85 filtration media which is highly effective at reducing chlorine and other chemicals and significantly extends carbon life. Most ordinary shower filters can’t afford to use KDF.
2. One-touch Backwash A unique feature of the Wellness Shower is the exclusive ‘One-touch Backwash‘ system. Just once a month for 30-seconds is all takes to regenerate the Wellness Shower, returning it to a ‘like new’ condition.This unique feature (the same backwash process that is found in our MG-III whole of home filters) actually regenerates the carbon and KDF media inside the filter whilst at the same time flushing dirt and sediment build-up safely down the drain.
Real Savings – Superior Value |Thanks to this innovative backwashing feature the Wellness Shower outperforms the chlorine removal performance of ordinary shower filters by a significant margin. In fact, a Wellness Shower can often exceed current official chlorine reduction standards by over 90%, and outlasts competing shower filters by up to a factor of six times!
To match the performance of a Wellness Shower ordinary water filters would need to be replaced every 3-4 months. This translates into significant savings and highlights the false economy of low cost shower filters when compared to a premium product like the Wellness Shower.
Ordinary shower filter cartridges average cost – $90 Replace every 4 months for 18 months (4.5 x 90) = Total Cost $405 Wellness Shower Cartridge $245 – Save $160
You can expect the Wellness Shower to last up to two-years, actual figures are: 1-2 Showers per day = 18-24, 3-4 Showers per day = 12-18 months, 5-6 Showers per day = 9-15 months. Specifications:
