Bath And Shower Filters: Wash Without The Chemicals

Did you know that there are risks lurking in your shower water?

From chlorine to heavy metals and microorganisms like bacteria, it could all potentially be in there.

Many homes filter their drinking water to remove these contaminants. But, it can be equally important to filter the water that you use for bathing and showering.

Our bath and shower filters can help you live a healthier life with cleaner, safer water.

Find out all about what a bath and shower filter does, how it works and what the health benefits are right here.

What Is A Bath And Shower Filter?

Bath and shower filters are devices that are designed to remove the impurities and contaminants from the water that you use to wash with. Fitted directly to your existing tap or showerhead, they are easily installed and ready to purify your water in a matter of minutes.

Specifically designed for the bathing and showering environment, your filter will perform the following tasks:

  • Removal of Chlorine: One of the primary functions of bath and shower filters is to remove chlorine from the water. Commonly used to treat town water supplies, chlorine kills bacteria and other pathogens. But, it can have negative effects on your skin, hair, and respiratory health when you shower or bath.

    By eliminating chlorine, a filter can help prevent skin dryness and irritation, along with reducing other issues associated with chlorine exposure.

  • Reduces Other Contaminants: Chlorine is just one of the risks in your water, there are other contaminants that a bath or shower filter can help to remove. Your filter can reduce the presence of sediment, bad taste and odour, microorganisms like bacteria, and heavy metals.
  • Improves Water Quality: Bath and shower filters can enhance the overall quality of your water by improving its taste, smell, and feel. Filtered water is often softer, which can help with soap lathering and rinsing, as well as reducing hard water build up on your shower glass and other surfaces.

How Do Bath And Shower Filters Work?

Our bath and shower filters use advanced filtration technology to effectively remove chlorine, heavy metals, and other impurities from your water.

Here's a brief overview of the 6 stages of filtration your water goes through:

  1. KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion): KDF filters use a high-purity copper-zinc formulation to reduce chlorine, heavy metals, and bacteria. This type of filter is particularly effective in high-temperature environments like showers. Often, these warmer temperatures can turn excess chlorine into a gas, which is more easily absorbed into the body.
  2. Calcium Sulphite: Calcium sulphite reacts with any chlorine to neutralise it in both hot and cold water. That makes it particularly effective in baths and showers where the water temperature can vary. The reaction significantly reduces the amount of chlorine, reducing the potential irritants chlorine can cause also.
  3. Anisotropic Ferrite Magnet: These magnets are used to soften your water by altering the structure of minerals responsible for water hardness, like calcium and magnesium. When water passes through the magnetic field created by the anisotropic ferrite magnets, it changes the crystalline structure of those minerals, making them dissolve easier so they are less likely to form scale. The result is softer water which is gentler on your skin and hair, and it’s less likely to create buildup in your pipes and on your bathroom fixtures.
  4. Activated Ceramic Balls: Used to oxygenate, activated ceramic balls enhance the water quality by releasing negative ions and infrared energy into the water. This increases the dissolved oxygen content, improving your skin and hair health by promoting better hydration and cell function. Plus, oxygenated water can feel fresher and more invigorating to bathe in.
  5. Activated Carbon: Many filters use activated carbon to attract and hold contaminants. Activated carbon is highly effective at removing chlorine and other chemicals. It also helps to improve the taste and odour of your water so you always feel clean and fresh after washing.
  6. High Flow Sediment Filtration: Using a thin mesh, sediment particles are trapped as the water flows through, stopping them from reaching your bath or shower. This process helps to improve the clarity and quality of your water, and it also prevents other parts of your filter from being clogged by sediment, prolonging its lifespan.

Why Install A Bath or Shower Filter?

There are plenty of reasons why a bath or shower filter can make washing and bathing more pleasant. Here are the main ones:

  • Skin and Hair Health: Chlorine and other chemicals can strip natural oils from your skin and hair, leading to dryness, irritation, and even conditions like eczema and dermatitis. A bath or shower filter can help your body maintain its natural moisture balance, leaving your skin softer and your hair shinier.
  • Respiratory Health: When you shower in chlorinated water, you end up inhaling chlorine vapours. They can irritate your respiratory tract and even negatively impact conditions like asthma. By removing chlorine from your shower water, a filter can help improve indoor air quality and your respiratory health.
  • General Wellbeing: Using a bath or shower filter can reduce your overall exposure to potentially harmful substances like chlorine, heavy metals and bacteria. When you don’t have to deal with these things in your water it can contribute to better long-term health.
