Shower Filter to Handle Chlorine in the Shower

If you have chlorinated water then you need a shower filter to remove the chlorine.

Have you noticed that the chlorine smell is worse in your shower than it is coming out of your kitchen tap?  A shower head spreads the water out giving it more surface area and the water is hot so the chlorine comes out of the water very easily.  And in the shower you have no choice but to breathe in the chlorine gas.

Ah!  Nothing like a breath of fresh chlorine to wake you up in the morning.

Unfortunately chlorine is a poisonous gas put there to kill things in your water. Here are a few of the things I have found that chlorine in the shower can contribute to:

  • respiratory problems from breathing the chlorine gas.
  • dry, brittle hair – a friend of mine complains about this.
  • dry skin issues like dandruff, flaking, itching, and rashes.
  • eye irritations
  • ear irritations – my grandmother has problems with this when camping.

The solution is a good shower filter that will deal with the chlorine.  I use a shower filter that works well for a lot of people I know.

    Have you realized that by putting your fingers for 15 seconds into a customary glass of city tap water you ingest more than 80 percent of the chlorine into your body? Now just think how much chlorine you retain in a 10 minute shower?

      Thanks for the comment Shwan. A friend of mine demonstrated that with a glass of water once. It’s simple to show with a pool test kit for chlorine.
