Bath & Shower
Chlorine disinfection is an effective method to kill bacteria and viruses, as well as the amoeba, in order to prevent water-borne diseases spread by tap water. Chlorine can react with naturally occurring organic compounds found in the water supply to produce trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Chlorine and THMs can be easily absorbed through the skin into the body.
In the enclosed shower stall environment, where free-chlorine and THMs vaporizes from the liquid to the gas state at higher water temperatures, and subsequently, inhaled. Exposed to high levels of Chlorine and THMs have an increased risk of cancer and congenital defects including cardiac defects. You need the purifier to protect your health on bath and shower.
Carbon is an excellent filter material on10 oC to 27 oC temperature range so it is usually used in drinking water filters. The temperature for bath and shower is usually at 29 oC to 40 oC, carbon becomes failure with the water temperature rises, but also released the pollutants back into the water.
US Sprite Shower Purifier has been tested and certified with NSF/ANSI 177 for the reduction of Chlorine, its patented KDF Chlorgon technology with filtration principle similar in automotive catalytic converters, by "redox" chemical reaction, convert the harmful Chlorine into a harmless, greater volume water-soluble chloride ion. It becomes too large to evaporation or absorbed through the skin. The conversion effectiveness improves with the water temperature increases.
