Shower Head Filter
Do you know anyone who uses a swimming pool for bathing? Or who feels cleaner after a dip in a hot tub? Like most people, do you and those you know shower off after time spent in a pool or jacuzzi?
The reasons everyone needs to shower after swimming in a pool or relaxing in a hot tub are twofold: One, because a pool or hot tub may not have the cleanest water, even with chlorine and filters; and two, because it is important to wash the chlorinated pool water off your skin and hair.
But, here’s the catch: regular tap water, like the kind that comes out of your shower, is full of chlorine. Tap water is chlorinated by towns and cities to disinfect the water – that is, remove the bacteria, viruses, parasites, or other tiny-yet-harmful organisms that can live in the water. Granted, tap water isn’t chlorinated to nearly the same degree as your average swimming pool or hot tub, but the effects of chlorine on your skin and hair remain.
So what are the effects of chlorine on your skin and hair?
Chlorine in water can make your skin drier and more cracked, it can dry out your hair and scalp, making your hair brittle and contributing to a flaky scalp, and it can irritate and inflame existing skin conditions, like eczema. Did you know that chlorine is used to lighten hair? Well, if you have color-treated hair, regular chlorinated tap water can dull and lighten your color-treated hair.
This is why we offer the Aquashower shower water filter. The Aquashower is an in-line water filter for shower heads that connects between the shower pipe and the shower head itself. It treats the chlorine in your tap water so that your shower experience is healthier, leaving you feeling cleaner and more refreshed. The Aquashower prevents chlorinated water from stripping the beneficial oils in your skin and hair, while at the same time uses special crystalline quartz to enhance the lathering effects of your shampoo and soap.
Most people would agree that it’s important to make sure that their drinking water is clean and healthy to drink. The water you use on the outside of your body is just as important as the water you’re drinking for the inside of your body. An Aquashower shower head water filter helps take care of that. Think of it as your own personal spa experience in the shower.
And because at Multipure, we believe in the power and integrity of our products, the Aquashower is tested and certified by the Water Quality Association according to NSF/ANSI Standard 177 for the Reduction of Free Available Chlorine.
What Can the Aquashower Do for You?
Multipure’s Aquashower shower water filter can remove 90 percent or more of the free chlorine that’s in your shower water. With cleaner, healthier shower water, you may notice a dramatic difference – especially when it comes to your skin and hair. If you suffer from dry scalp and frizzy hair, the Aquashower can result in softer, more manageable hair, with less fading for color-treated hair, and relief from excessive dryness.
What’s Included with the Aquashower?Each Aquashower package includes everything you need to filter the chlorine and particulates out of your shower water. It includes the Aquashower shower head water filter plus one extra replacement filter cartridge.
How Hard Is It to Install and Maintain the Aquashower?The Aquashower is quick and easy to install and maintain. You don’t need any special hardware, tools, or professional help – just unscrew your existing shower head and attach the Aquashower between the pipe and the shower head. The Aquashower itself can be unscrewed into two halves to take out the old filter and put in the new filter. You can have it up and filtering your shower water in minutes.
What’s So Special About Your Shower Filters?Here’s something a lot of people don’t realize: the most common water filtration media is activated carbon in some form or another; the problem is, activated carbon doesn’t work as well at higher temperatures – especially the higher temperatures found in a shower or bath. Because of this, Multipure uses special filter media – KDF-55, specifically designed to work at the high temperatures of a shower and bath. That, plus the addition of some crystalline quartz in the formula, gives you not just a cleaner shower, but a shower that feels more refreshing and invigorating.
