Benefits

Men and women have become aware of how important it is to remove chlorine not only from drinking water, but also from water we use on our bodies.  We absorb more chlorine through our lungs and skin under a hot shower than if we drank chlorinated water all day.

Knowing this, it is equally important, if not more, to filter shower water to preserve vibrant health.

The Berkey® Shower Filter removes chlorine and reduces the risk of exposure which causes symptoms including dry skin, brittle hair, and eye redness.  Filtering your shower water allows your skin and hair to become silky and soft.

Scientific studies have documented that taking long hot showers with highly reactive chlorine is a health risk, as it combines with fatty acids and carbon fragments to form a variety of toxic compounds.  Absorption and inhalation of chlorine in a shower environment presents higher risks for certain types of diseases. And, may also exacerbate pre-existing conditions like eczema and asthma.

How Berkey® Shower Filters Work

Berkey® Shower Filters  use a patented blend of high-purity calcium, copper and zinc to convert the free-chlorine into a harmless chloride, by reduction-oxidation.

Keeping it simple, electrons are transferred between molecules that create new elements. In this example, free-chlorine comes in contact with the filtration media and is changed into a benign water-soluble chloride.  The resulting reaction changes the free-chlorine into a larger chloride element which is too large to be absorbed by the skin.
