Shower Filter - Showerwise®

There's nothing like turning on the shower first thing in the morning, stepping into a steamy, luxurious haven of... chlorine smell. Yuck! Perhaps it's a little annoying, and you don't give it a second thought. Or maybe you have read the studies that flash back into your mind every time you step into your shower, er, gas chamber. Today is the day that you finally decide to break the annoyance and purchase your very own Showerwise Shower Filter! Good for you!

In terms of cumulative damage to your health, showering in chlorinated water is one of the most dangerous risks you take daily. Short-term risks include: eyes, sinus, throat, skin and lung irritation. Long-term risks include: excessive free-radical formation (that ages you!) higher vulnerability to genetic mutation and cancer development; and difficulty metabolizing cholesterol, causing hardened arteries. -Science News - www.sciencenews.org

Showerwise® Chrome Extension Arm

Showerwise Chrome Extension Arm

If you are concerned about your shower head being too low, or if your shower head is too high for small children, the chrome extension arm might be just what you need. As you can see in the picture, the shower head can go above the filter, and anywhere between that and fully below the filter. In the picture you can see that the filter housing and shower head for the Showerwise are not located right next to each other. This prevents the weight from getting too heavy for the arm to handle. I put one of these on my shower recently and it was very simple to do. I'm really happy with the new adjustable height for myself and two small children.

Why Showerwise®?

Perhaps you are wondering why in the world you would want to filter your shower water. Sounds a bit extreme, doesn't it? After all, we've been taking showers for YEARS, yet we are still standing! Right? For vain reasons, showering in filtered water prevents drying out of your hair and skin. For health reasons, consider the following:

  • Believe it or not, bathing and showering in unfiltered, chlorinated water is even more harmful than drinking the same water. Taking one shower is as harmful as drinking contaminated water all day long. Not only are toxic substances inhaled, but they are also absorbed through the skin.

  • "We conclude that skin absorption of contaminants in drinking water has been underestimated and that ingestion may not constitute the sole or even primary route of exposure."
    -American Journal of Public Health, May, 1984, Vol. 74, No. 5

  • "Showering is suspected as the primary cause of elevated chloroform in nearly every home because of the chlorine in the water. Chloroform [a known carcinogen] levels increase up to 100 times during a ten-minute shower in residential water"
    - Environmental Protection Agency - Dr. Lance Wallace

  • "Ironically, even the Chlorine widely used to disinfect water produces Carcinogenic traces. Studies indicate the suspect chemicals can also be inhaled and absorbed through the skin during showering and bathing." - U. S. News & World Report - 29 July 1991, Is your Water Safe - The Dangerous State of Your Water

  • Up to 2/3 of the harmful effects of chlorine are due to inhalation and skin absorption while showering. -The American Journal Of Public Health

  • We have known for a long time that chloramines can trigger, rather than cause asthma. -Ralph Riley, head of the National Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group

  • One common factor among women with breast cancer is that they all have 50-60% higher levels of these chlorination by-products (THMs) in their fat tissue than women without breast cancer... -BreastCancerFund.org
