Chlorine and your Shower
"Volatile organics can evaporate from water in a shower or bath."
- Is Your Water Safe to Drink? Consumer Reports Books
"A long, hot shower can be dangerous. The toxic chemicals are inhaled in high concentrations."
- Bottom Line; Dr. John Andelman, PhD.
"Water is chlorinated to kill micro-organisms, but the chlorine also kills the healthy probiotic bacteria in the intestines."
- Restoring Your Digestive Health; Jordan S. Rubin, N.MD., PhD.
"Avoiding contact with chlorinated water is of the utmost importance. This includes bathing water and drinking water. Chlorine kills bacteria, friendly and unfriendly, in the intestines. It can be absorbed through the skin. I recommend installing a shower filter to remove chlorine."
Frequently Asked Questions
- Patient, Heal Thyself; Jordan S. Rubin, N.MD., PhD.
What are the Effects of Chlorine in the Shower?
Chlorine is a toxic gas which attacks living cells. It was used during World War I as a chemical warfare agent. It is used today as a additive to drinking water to kill harmful micro-organisms. While this can be an important health benefit, chlorine itself is far from beneficial: it attacks organic material, such as the skin and skin oils, which dries out the skin and hair. Because chlorine vaporizes along with the hot water, it is inhaled into the lungs. It is also absorbed into the skin. According to some experts, five times more chlorine enters the body through the skin during a shower than enters through drinking 8 glasses of chlorinated tap water!

How Does the Premium Shower Filter Work?
A patented mixture of zinc and copper called KDF-55, plus crystal quartz, converts chlorine into zinc chloride. Zinc is considered to be helpful in alleviating dandruff and is used in anti-dandruff shampoos. Unlike carbon, KDF stands up to hot water and is very effective in filtering out chlorine, odors and dirt particles. KDF possesses strong bacteriostatic character, inhibiting the growth of bacteria, fungus, algae and mildew. The Premium Shower Filter contains 16 oz. of KDF and 2 oz. of crystal Quartz for enhanced performance and natural water softening.
How Long will the Premium Shower Filter Last?
On average, the filter will last about one year. Initially, the filter will remove 98% of the chlorine. Over time, the removal percentage declines until it is at about 87% after one year. Accordingly, we recommend annual cartridge replacement. To make it easier to change the filter, we recommend soaking the entire unit in hot water (1 gallon) and white vinegar (1 tablespoon) for about 10-15 min. Take the unit out while it is still hot and turn it counter-clockwise.
Replacement filter cartridges are available from the retailer where the Shower filter was purchased, or call New Wave Enviro Products at 1-800-592-8371 and we can assist you in finding a retailer.
Sending in the warranty card allows New Wave Enviro to send a reminder when it is time to change cartridges. (Customer names / addresses are not sold to any company).
Premium Shower Filter- Installation and Operation
- Unscrew and remove the existing shower head from the shower arm (1/2 in. pipe).
- To minimize water drips, wrap the included teflon tape around the shower arm and the filter (optional).
- Screw the Premium Shower Filter onto the shower arm and screw the shower head onto the Premium Shower Filter. Hand tighten only- over tightening can crack the filter housing.
- The Premium Shower Filter is now ready for use. Simply turn on the water as usual. The very first time the Premium Shower Filter is used, the water may take a minute or so to flow through.
- To replace the Premium Shower Filter make sure that you keep the O-rings in place and rub them with olive oil or petroleum jelly. You can also use the olive oil or petroleum jelly on the threads of the housing to make it easier to open next year.
The Premium Shower Filter housing has a one year manufactures warranty from date of purchase for defects or cracks. The life of the cartridge can vary depending on the water conditions and usage; therefore we cannot warranty the filter.

Chlorine gas was used extensively in WW1 as a chemical warfare agent. Today it is used in municipal water supplies to deliver water to our homes free of microscopic contaminants. However it serves no useful purpose on or in our bodies. New Wave designs, patents and manufactures water filters that remove harmful chlorine & other contaminants from shower, bath and drinking water at home and away from home.
