Berkey Shower Filter

 

The Berkey shower filter is easy to install and is great for those who want the benefits of showering in filtered water. Simply screw this in between the shower pipe coming from your wall and your exising shower head, and you're good to go! We also sell this shower filter with a massage head.

In the shower environment, chlorine can either be in liquid or gas state. At higher water temperatures in the enclosed shower stall, free-chlorine moves from the liquid to the gas state, where it vaporizes and subsequently is inhaled. The United States regulates all showerhead flow at 2.5 gallons per minute. Thus, the science behind shower filtration must take into account the unique situation in the shower, including temperature, flow rate and volume.

Documented scientific studies conclude that taking long hot showers is a potential health risk. In the enclosed shower stall, chlorine vaporizes where it is inhaled. To a lesser degree, dermal absorption also occurs. Medical studies suggest a link between absorption and inhalation of chlorine in the shower environment with elevated risks for diseases and serious illness. Showering in chlorinated water may also cause pre-existing conditions such as asthma and eczema, to become exacerbated.

More About The Berkey Shower Filter

Using a patented blend of high purity calcium, copper, and zinc, our Shower Filter works on a similar principle to a Catalytic Converter in an automobile. In shower filtration free-chlorine is converted into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this chemical reaction is known as "Reduction-Oxidation", commonly referred to as Redox. Redox reactions can be chemically complex. Simply stated, during a Redox reaction electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new elements. For instance, when free-chlorine comes in contact with the filtration media, it is changed into a benign, water-soluble chloride. This reaction changes free-chlorine to a larger chloride element, too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the skin. It is then carried harmlessly through the water supply.

In addition to the benefits of filtering water, there are cosmetic benefits. Symptoms of chlorine exposure are dry and/or flaking skin, dry brittle hair and red irritated eyes. Filtering your shower water reduces these symptoms!

The media used in the berkey shower filter are high-purity copper-zinc formulations used in treatment applications to reduce heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide, microorganisms, and scale. Water filtered through redox media controls microorganism growth. High-purity copper-zinc redox media consistently remove 99% of free chlorine by electrochemically reducing dissolved chlorine gas to water-soluble chloride ions.

So much betterReview by Soey

You forget what it's like to not shower in chlorinated water after a while. It's like you just get used to that horrible smell. After installing this, I felt like I was back in shower heaven. Just the ability to let the water run through my hair and into my mouth without gagging was a joy! I'm finally enjoying long showers again and so it my hair! (Posted on 4/18/14)

I've used them for years and I know when I need one because I become sleepy, or somehow in a fog when I get out of the shower. WITH the filter I don't have to use lotion, skin not dried out, and I feel invigorated and energized after the shower or bath. I use the shower head to fill the tub for our 10 year old as well.

I bought 2 for my house and what a difference. Like the other reviewer, that chlorine smell almost turns my stomach sometimes. It has no effect on my husband, so I must be more sensitive. This shower filter eliminates that smell and I notice and my skin is not drying out anymore either. (Posted on 2/27/13)

Hello, black berkey filters remove monochloramines greater than 99.9% but how about the shower head filter?

Does your shower filter get rid of fluoride? If not, do you plan on making one that will in the future?
