CHLORINE AND YOUR SHOWER

"Taking long hot showers is a health risk, according to research presented last week in Anaheim, California, at a meeting of the American Chemical Society. Showers-and to a lesser extent baths-lead to a greater exposure to toxic chemicals contained in water supplies than does drinking water. The chemicals evaporate out of the water and are inhaled. They canalso spread through the house and be inhaled by others. Householders can receive 6 to 100 times more of the chemical by breathing the air around showers and bath than they would by drinking the water".                        New Scientist 18 September 1986-Ian Anderson

"Chlorine gas was despicably used during WW1. When the war was over, the use of chlorine was diverted to poisoning germs in our drinking water. All water supplies throughout the country were chlorinated. The combination of chlorine (when in drinking water) and animal fats results in atherosclerosis, heart attacks and death.

WHY SHOWER CHLORINE-FREE?

Health and Beauty Begin with a Sprite Filtered Shower

Shower Chlorine-Free with Sprite.  Chlorine is universally used to disinfect water, killing bacteria and other microorganisms.  But once it arrives in your home, chlorine can negatively affect you family's long-term health, comfort and even personal appearance.  Sprite Shower Filters with patented Chlorgon non-carbon media - outperform other filters for chlorine removal in hot shower conditions.  The world leader in shower filtration technology for 15 years, Sprite has earned more than 18 U.S. and international patents.

For Softer Hair and Smoother Skin.  Millions own water filters to remove chlorine from drinking water.  But 50% of chlorine exposure occurs in the shower.  Unfiltered shower water can double their exposure to chlorine by absorption through the skin and by inhalation of chlorine vapors.  Sprite filters chlorine for softer hair and smoother skin.  Now you can fight brittle hair, dry skin and dandruff - where health and beauty begin - right in your shower.

Breathe easier with Sprite.  Chlorine vaporizes in hot shower water and, when inhaled in the lungs, is transferred into the blood stream.  Scientific studies have linked chlorinated water to potentially harmful by-products that can, over time, contribute to such health-threatening conditions as cancer of the bladder, liver, stomach and colon.  Heart disease, high blood pressure and allergies have also been linked with chlorine.  Sprite Shower Filtration helps reduce these risks - so you can breathe easier.

For Today's Healthy Home. Shower filtration by Sprite is a logical addition for people concerned about home environmental issues including the quality of water and air in their homes.  Help protect your home's personal environment and entire family with a Sprite filter in every shower.

Chlorine in Your Shower...
Since chlorination is a long established public health practice necessary for the disinfection of drinking water, consumers are aware of the health benefit drinking filtered water can provide. However, it's surprising for some people to learn that 50% of their daily exposure is in the shower. The other 50% comes from their drinking water. Therefore, filtering shower water is equally as important, as filtering drinking water.
Documented scientific studies conclude that taking long hot showers is a health risk. In the enclosed shower stall, chlorine vaporizes where it is inhaled. To a lesser degree, dermal absorption also occurs. As chlorine is added to kill pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, 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 elevated risks for diseases and serious illnesses. Showering in chlorinated water may also cause pre-existing conditions, such as asthma and eczema, to become exacerbated.
In addition to health benefits of filtering water, there are cosmetic benefits. Symptoms of chlorine exposure are dry and/or flaking skin, dry brittle hair and red irritated eyes. Filtering the shower water reduces these symptoms. Skin and hair feel softer and eyes become less red and irritated.

SPRITE's filtration technology makes it possible...
In the shower environment, chlorine can either be in liquid or gas state. At higher water temperatures in the enclosed shower stall, free-chlorine moves from the liquid to the gas state, where it vaporizes and subsequently, inhaled. The United States regulates all showerhead flow at 2.5 gallons per minute. Thus, the science behind shower filtration must take into account the unique situation in the shower, including temperature, flow rate and volume.

Sprite shower filters work on a similar principle to a Catalytic Converter in an automobile. In shower filtration free-chlorine is converted into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this chemical reaction is known as "Reduction-Oxidation", commonly referred to as Redox.

Redox reactions can be chemically complex. Simply stated, during a Redox reaction electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new elements. For instance, when free-chlorine comes in contact with the filtration media, it is changed into a benign, water-soluble chloride. This reaction changes free-chlorine to a larger chloride element. Too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the skin. It is then carried harmlessly through the water supply.

Redox Filtration Medias
Chlorgon is one type of Redox filtration media. Researched, developed and patented by David Farley, CEO of Sprite Industries, Inc., Chlorgon converts free chlorine and some combined chlorines, such as sodium hypochlorite (liquid swimming pool chlorine), to a harmless chloride. Chlorgon also works well in a variety of temperatures from hot to cold.

Kinetic Degreadation Fluxion, or KDF, is another type of Redox filtration media. Researched, developed and patented by Don Heskett, founder of KDF fluid treatment, KDF converts free chlorine to a harmless chloride. This media of high-purity copper-zinc formulations is used in pretreatment, primary treatment, and wastewater  applications. Patented KDF process media are 100 percent recyclable and contain no chemical additives. Hospitals, restaurants, municipal water treatment facilities, and homes rely on KDF process media to safely reduce or remove  free chlorine, iron oxides and hydrogen sulfide.

All Sprite filtered shower products contain both Chlorgon, and KDF filtration medias.
