It is estimated that the steam created from showering in your bathroom contains up to 100 times the amount of chlorine than found in the water. This is because chlorine evaporates out of the water at a relatively low temperature. If you bathe or shower in unfiltered tap water you are inhaling and absorbing dangerous, toxic chlorine into your body. The purpose of chlorine in our water is to keep the water free from harmful bacteria and waterborne diseases right up until the time of use. This is when the chlorine should be removed by a quality home water filtration system. The Pelican shower filter removes 96% of chlorine to protect you and your family from the immediate and long-term damaging effects of dangerous chemicals. Enjoy the many health benefits in addition to softer hair and skin, with the Pelican PSF-1W Handheld Shower Filter.
