Do I Really Need a Shower Filter?

Many Aussies know full well about the benefits of water filtration for drinking water. But many are still yet to discover the excellent benefits of treating their shower water too!

Even the most negligible amounts of chlorine in your shower water are enough to stick to your skin and hair, stripping them of natural oils and disrupting the microbiome (the natural bacteria) in your skin and hair. 

Signs You Need a Shower Filter

      1. Dry, irritated skin (leads to premature aging - wrinkles)
      2. Dry, brittle, or unnaturally frizzy hair.
      3. Dry or red eyes.
      4. Scaley or itchy scalp. 
      5. Flare-ups in existing conditions like eczema, rosacea or psoriasis (especially in young children and infants).
      6. Scale on the shower glass.
      7. Difficulty breathing in the shower.
      8. Smelly shower water.
      9. Feeling tired, lethargic or light heading or dizzy after you get out of the shower.

In some cases, general exposure to chlorine in the shower can lead to a decline in cognitive function for a short period while your body detoxes the chlorine. Other things people noticed include fatigue, mental stress and lowered immune function.

What Options Do You Have?

Install A Whole House Water Filter

A Whole House Water Filter will treat all contaminated water, removing chlorine before it enters the home, immediately preventing many of the challenges listed above.

Understandably, a Whole House Water Filter may not be affordable for everyone, so there are some cheaper alternatives: 

Install a Shower Head Filter

A Shower Filter contains carbon, which effectively removes chlorine and treats all of the contaminants we are talking about!

At My Water Filter, we offer solutions for your shower water issues no matter where you are in Australia.
