Berkey Inline Shower Filter
The Berkey Inline Shower Filter produces contaminant-free refreshing water that promotes healthy and soft skin and hair The filter improves water and vapour quality by eliminating chlorine, heavy metals, algae, scale and sediment found in tap water. The environmentally friendly Inline Shower Filter adapts to your existing shower head or handheld shower and features a replaceable cartridge which will last approximately 1 year in most water conditions.
Consumers are increasingly aware that it is important to remove chlorine from drinking water, not only to improve
As such, filtering shower water is equally as important for our health as filtering drinking water.
The Berkey® Inline Shower Filter allows you to reduce apparent physical symptoms of chlorine exposure including dry and/or flaking skin, dry brittle hair and red irritated eyes. Filtering your shower water reduces these symptoms, leaving your skin and hair silky and soft. The Inline Shower Filter also reduces heavy metals, algae, scale and sediment in the water you shower in. The replaceable Berkey Inline cartridge also inhibits bacterial growth.
Documented scientific studies conclude that taking long hot showers is a potential long-term health risk as the highly reactive chlorine combines with fatty acids and carbon fragments to form a variety of toxic compounds. Medical studies suggest a link between absorption and inhalation of chlorine in the shower environment with higher risks for certain types of diseases. Showering in chlorinated water may also exacerbate pre-existing conditions such as asthma and eczema.
