Shower Filters
to remove chloride

Chlorine is added to the water supply because it kills baceria and germs. It also has some unpleasant side effects for humans. Because of its toxicity, it even has been used in gas warfare during WWI.

It is common for health-conscious families to install chlorine-removal filters in their kitchens, but it has been estimated that we absorb more chlorine through our skin when taking a bath than we ever could from drinking water. That is because the body's skin surface is larger than the intestinal surface and because the lungs, too, are very efficient absorbers, and we inhale a substantial amount of chlorine gas while bathing.

Fortunately, attaching a chlorine filter to your shower head is as simple as replacing the head for cleaning. A few twists by hand (a wrench is seldom needed) and it's done. For those who prefer tub baths, just fill the tub from the shower head and then relax in a chlorine-free environment.

BENEFITS: Reduced exposure to toxic chlorine, healthier, younger looking skin; softer, more manageable hair; less fading of color-treated hair; relief from dry skin and scalp; and better lathering. Removes 90% or more of chlorine.

If you are technically inclined and want to know why crystal filters are better for this task than carbon filters, click here for an explanation. Even though carbon filters are cheaper than the crystal filters used in the CQ-1000, you do not want to use them in your shower. They may be OK for drinking water, but they stop working when exposed to hot water! And there are other problems as well. This link contains additional information.
