The Dangers of Chlorine

It's time for a Rainshow'r chlorine free bath. Yes enjoy a nice clean bath without the offending presence of chlorine. In World War I Chlorine was used by the Germans to kill enemy solders. It attacked the lungs by causing a burning sensation chest pains then death by suffocation. Chlorinated bath water not only kill bacteria, it also attacks your  hair, skin, and lungs leaving hair dry and brittle and making your skin flaky and itchy. It can also trigger negative reactions in children, the elderly, and people with chlorine-sensitivity. Below please find an excerpt from a very informative article on the subject of chlorinated water in the shower from the Australian magazine, Nature & Health Vol. 10 No. 4., Issue Summer 1989. Pages 44-49.

Chlorinated Water and Unknown Hazards of the Shower

There is another side to the chlorine-water story. When we return from a gym workout or a jogging session or a game of squash, not only are we thirsty but we usually shower or bathe. We have been taught that cleanliness and health go together, and indeed they do, when chemical-free water is used. When chlorinated water is used, however, bathing may be much less healthy than we ever supposed.

Gasses are as a rule less soluble in hot water, and when water is heated or boiled dissolved gasses are released. Boiling water is as we noted earlier a way in which the free chlorine content in water is greatly reduced, the chlorine escaping into the air. When we have a hot shower or run a bath we can sometimes smell the chlorine released as it escapes from the hot water. In a confined shower recess, however, especially one with poor ventilation, the chlorine escapes from the water as we continue the hot shower and steadily increases in concentration in the air we breathe. The olfactory threshold for chlorine is about 3.5 PPM (parts per million) so when we can smell chlorine the concentration is already above this level. The lethal concentration for ten-minute exposure is about 600 PPM and we suggest that regularly taking hot showers with chlorinated water could pose a health risk. Chlorine causes pulmonary edema, and it would seem likely that regular exposure to chlorine gas even at low levels such as in normal showering may reduce the oxygen transfer capacity of the lungs. This could be a critical factor for athletes and for others prone to heart failure.

Another aspect to be considered is our skin. Our skin is an important protective barrier for our bodies. When we shower with chlorinated water we are essentially exposing our skin to a relatively large volume of a dilute chlorine solution. Some of this chlorine reacts with the oils in the skin to form chlorinated compounds and it is these compounds which may then be absorbed by the body. It seems very likely, considering the strong oxidizing power of chlorine, that regular exposure to chlorinated water serves also to promote the aging process of the skin, not unlike extended exposure to sunlight. Moreover, chlorine may actually enhance the aging effects of ultraviolet radiation by reinforcing the process of cell deterioration.

Another skin factor to be considered with the destruction by chlorine of the natural bacteria balance on our skin. Our skin has an ecology, all of its own, which needs to be preserved in order to maintain healthy skin and its associated beauty.

Rainshow'r Removes Chlorine

We have enlisted the assistance of Rainshow'r shower filters to annihilate 90% or more of the offending chlorine from your bath water. Rainshow'r shower filters are ranked among the highest quality shower filters in the industry. With over 15 years of experience designing and manufacturing shower filters Rainshower has built a great reputation with its thousands of satisfied customers. This experience is why you will never see activated carbon being used in any of Rainshower's shower filters. Activated carbon is not recommended for hot water use. Rainshow'r Mfg. Co., Inc. was the first shower filter manufacturer to use KDF in their shower filter and today, non-carbon shower filters are the norm, and KDF the preferred media among shower filter designers. 

Rainshower Employes KDF 55

KDF is comprised of 50% copper and 50% zinc. It removes free chlorine by reversing the electrochemical process that originally separated the chlorine from sodium in a brine solution. The chlorine is recombine with calcium to form a soluble chloride, which washes out of the filter and is harmless to humans. KDF not only offers superior dechlorination capabilities, it lasts much longer than carbon media does. Depending upon the filter model, the amount of KDF, and the water source a KDF shower filter should last seven to nine months.  KDF is also bacteriostatic (inhibits reproduction), and tends to reduce or eliminate fungus and mildew build up in the shower.

Rainshower Employes Crystalline Quartz  

Rainshower also incorporates crystalline quartz technology. The purpose of washed and sun dried quartz crystals is to help "energize" the water by reducing the water's surface tension. This allows for an increase in the sudsuing and lathering of soaps and shampoos. The water has a "lighter" feel, similar to the feeling of softened water. Rainshow'r introduced crystal to the general market through the CQ-1000 shower filter series in March 1998 and to its knowledge was the first to do so. Because of the electron movement caused in shocking the crystal an electrical charge is generated which Rainshow'r believes reduces the size of water molecule clusters. In other words making smaller water clusters from larger water clusters. This is also known as “wetter” water. The evidence to support this is claim is the increased sudsing and lathering that result. As with all the materials used in Rainshow'r products, crystal (silicon dioxide) is completely safe and non-toxic. Not only is its chemical combination non-toxic but because of its hardness it cannot absorb materials which could be harmful. Rainshow'r uses only virgin crystal extracted from a specially selected mine in North America. The crystal is ground and processed to Rainshow'r specifications and shipped to us in two thousand pound lots. It is then washed in chlorine free water again and dried in the sun for at least two days. One ounce of the crystal is added to each CQ-1000 cartridge and layer it at the outlet. It is not integrated into the KDF filtering media

Shower Head Design

The primary thing to consider when using KDF is "contact time" - the amount of time the media is in contact with the water before it exits the shower head. The longer the water is in the presence of the media, the better the media performs. For optimum results of chlorine removal, the flow rate should be no more than 2–2.5 gallons per minute. 

Amcor massage shower head and hand held shower hose kit

  

The type of shower head used with the filter is an important factor in controlling flow rate through the filter. The shower head should provide the desired amount of water reduction, while giving the user an acceptable shower delivery. The best results are achieved with a high quality, flow-reduction shower head such as the name brand shower head that Rainshow'r provides.  Therefore we recommend the Whedon and Amcor shower head filters. The Whedon makes a fixed action spray as well as Whedon's hand held hose kit. The Amcor model has a massage action shower head as well as a hand held hose kit.
