Taking a shower is one of the ways we practice cleanliness and good hygiene. The quality of water we absorb in our bodies during a shower, however, may put us at risks instead as rapid growth in population, urbanization and industrialization degrades our water.
In the Philippines, up to 58 percent of groundwater sampled is contaminated with coliform and needs treatment, rendering it harmful to the skin. With our body absorbing three times as much water through the skin when showering than when drinking water, clean bathing water is essential.
A shower filter helps keep water for bathing clean and safe to use. What’s more, it can reduce harmful substances in the water, which in turn helps prevent skin rashes and other health problems.
Here are the other benefits of using a shower filter:
1. Makes skin feel softer and healthier
Contaminants in water such as lead and chlorine can cause skin dryness with too much exposure. A shower filter removes these harmful substances from the water, contributing to softer and healthier skin.
2. Reduces the risk of some cancers
Exposure to chlorinated water may pose dangers to the body. Continuous absorption of chlorine through the skin may increase the risk of some cancers. Showering with filtered water can help reduce this risk.
3. Prevents contamination of the air inside homes
Contaminants suspended in the air can mix with the air inside your rooms after you open the bathroom door. Installing a shower filter can help prevent this from happening by keeping the air inside your bathroom clean.
4. Reduces fatigue and improves energy
The chlorine present in water can aggravate the skin and lungs, potentially causing fatigue. Filtered water without contaminants can help improve energy levels.
5. Reduces excessive product buildup in bathrooms
Shower filters lessen the buildup of chlorine and salt in the nozzles of the shower head and corners of the bathroom. This means fewer areas of concern when cleaning the bathroom.
