Shower Filtration

Chlorine in Your Shower…
Chlorine is universally used to chemically disinfect water. It kills germs, bacteria and other microorganisms. Chlorine readily passes through cell walls, and attaches to fatty acids in the cell, disrupting life-sustaining functions. The human body is composed of billions of similar cells, which also absorb chlorine. It may be necessary to disinfect our tap water with chlorine, but with today’s technology, we do not have to be exposed to it. The quality of our drinking water can be improved, by filtering chlorine from the tap water or drinking bottled water. However, only part of the problem has been addressed.

One half of our daily chlorine exposure is from showering. Not only is chlorine absorbed through the skin, but also vaporizes in the shower, inhaled into the lungs and transferred directly into the blood system. In fact, chlorine exposure from one shower is equal to an entire day’s amount of drinking the same water. Therefore, drinking filtered or bottle water addresses only half the problem.

Sprite Shower Filters offer the answer for the complete solution.

Sprite recognized that even though carbon was an excellent filtration media for drinking filters, it could not effectively perform at the higher temperatures, flow rates and volumes found in the shower. In 1987, Sprite introduced, “Shower-Mite”™, the first non-carbon shower filter. Sprite has earned more than 15 U.S. and International patents and is the premier authority in shower filtration technology.

Today, with a complete line of shower filtration products, Sprite continues to set the pace and lead the way. Watts Premier is proud to offer Sprite products to our water filtration product line.
