show that your body can absorb more chlorine as a result of a 10 minute
shower than if you drank 8 glasses of the same water. How can that be?
A warm shower opens up your pores, causing your skin to act like a sponge.
As a result, you not only inhale the chlorine vapours, you also absorb
them through the skin.
The chlorine in your shower is a powerful toxin, deadly to bacteria and
fungi, AND poison for your body.
dictionary defines chlorine as a "gaseous greenish-yellow
element used as a bleaching and disinfecting agent." As
a disinfectant it kills bacteria. As a bleaching agent it makes
contaminants colourless. In your shower water it is just another
vaporised chemical that may increase your risk of illness and
make you feel like you are showering in swimming pool water.
skin, the body's largest organ, can easily absorb contaminants
found in water which pass through it into the bloodstream." The experts are just beginning to understand the potential health
hazards from skin absorption of water contaminants.

is universally used to chemically disinfect water. It kills germs,
bacteria and other microorganisms. Chlorine readily passes through
cell walls, and attaches to fatty acids in the cell, disrupting
life-sustaining functions. The human body is composed of billions
of similar cells, which also absorb chlorine. It may be necessary
to disinfect our tap water with chlorine, but with today's technology,
we do not have to be exposed to it.
The quality of our drinking
water can be improved, by filtering chlorine from the tap water
or drinking bottled water. However, only part of the problem has
half of our daily chlorine exposure is from showering. Not only
is chlorine absorbed through the skin, but also vaporizes in the
shower, inhaled into the lungs and transferred directly into the
blood system. In fact, chlorine exposure form one shower is equal
to an entire day's amount of drinking the same water. Therefore,
drinking filtered or bottled water addresses only half the problem. Sprite Shower Filters offer the answer for the complete solution.
Industries Incorporated is a 27 year-old manufacturer of electronic
water test instruments and filtration products. From the beginning,
Sprite recognized that even though carbon was an excellent filtration
media for drinking waters, it could not effectively perform at the
higher temperatures, flow rates and volumes found in the shower.
In 1987, Sprite introduced, "Shower-Mite," the first non-carbon shower filter. Sprite has earned more
than 15 U.S. and International patents and is the premier
authority in shower filtration technology. Today, with a complete
line of shower filtration products, Sprite continues to set
the pace and lead the way.

Health And Beauty Begin With A Sprite Filtered Shower -
Shower Chlorine-Free with Sprite:
Chlorine is universally used to disinfect water, killing bacteria and other microorganisms. But once it arrives in your home, chlorine can negatively affect you family's long-term health, comfort and even personal appearance. Sprite Shower Filters with patented Chlorgon non-carbon media - outperform other filters for chlorine removal in hot shower conditions. The world leader in shower filtration technology since 1987, Sprite has earned more than 18 U.S. and international patents.
For Softer Hair and Smoother Skin:
Millions own water filters to remove chlorine from drinking water. But 50% of chlorine exposure occurs in the shower. Unfiltered shower water can double their exposure to chlorine by absorption through the skin and by inhalation of chlorine vapours. Sprite filters chlorine for softer hair and smoother skin. Now you can fight brittle hair, dry skin and dandruff - where health and beauty begin - right in your shower.
Breathe easier with Sprite:
Chlorine vaporizes in hot shower water and, when inhaled in the lungs, is transferred into the blood stream. Scientific studies have linked chlorinated water to potentially harmful by-products that can, over time, contribute to such health-threatening conditions as cancer of the bladder, liver, stomach and colon. Heart disease, high blood pressure and allergies have also been linked with chlorine. Sprite Shower Filtration helps reduce these risks - so you can breathe easier.
For Today's Healthy Home:
Shower filtration by Sprite is a logical addition for people concerned about home environmental issues including the quality of water and air in their homes. Help protect your home's personal environment and entire family with a Sprite filter in every shower.
Now everyone can afford the luxury of showering in filtered water!
High Output Sprite Shower Filter removes chlorine for 12 to 18 months or 60,000 litres(15,000 gallons.) After which time, simply fit a

KDF process media will reduce or remove chlorine, iron, hydrogen sulphide, lead, mercury, magnesium, and chromium, and may inhibit the growth of bacteria, algae, and fungi. Redox media remove up to 99% of water-soluble cations (positively-charged ions) of lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium and other dissolved metals.
While removal rates depend on a number of factors, more than 99% of chlorine is removed by KDF in home water treatment systems (90% in shower water filters due to high flow rate).
Fluoride(Fluoride is not a major concern when showering, due to the extremely low level of fluoride in tap water, e.g. 10ppm. However, it is a major concern when drinking fluoridated water - accordingly, we thoroughly recommend a quality water distiller for pure drinking water.)
Benefits of KDF Filtration:
Different from carbon’s limited adsorption capability, KDF creates an electrochemical environment. This galvanic action allows for the reversal of the original chlorine creation process. This electrochemical reversal converts Free Available Chlorine to a harmless and soluble calcium chloride. For those not familiar , KDF™ media is a brass alloy (copper and zinc). These dissimilar metals allow for the creation of the galvanic action. This principle allows for long term usage impeded only by sediment or particulate matter that might occlude the surface, thereby reducing the media’s ability to generate electricity.
Activated carbon filters contain particles of carbon that have been treated to increase their surface area and increase their ability to adsorb a wide range of contaminants. Coconut shell carbon and bituminous (coal) carbon are the most common sources of carbon in activated carbon filters. The raw carbon source is slowly heated in the absence of air to produce a high carbon material. Passing oxidizing gases through the material at extremely high temperatures activates the carbon. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules. This is known as ADSORPTION [to adhere] and can be closely compared in principle to magnetism.
As a general rule the adsorption ability of Activated Carbon depends largely on a number of factors. They are as follows:
TURBIDITY: How clean is the water from fine particulate matter. The cleaner the incoming water, the greater is the ability to adsorb.
FLOW RATE: Gushing water is not filtered as well as water flowing at slower speeds. Example, if you were to throw a nail past the head of a magnet the odds of it adhering would be slight. Carbon is primarily used in drinking water filters which have a lower flow rate of ½ to 1 GPM (Gallons per minute) Water entering a shower filter is usually at a higher flow rate of approximately 2.5 GPM.( 5 time faster than through a water filter), far too fast for proper adsorption. Even using cold water, a minimum of 5 times the amount of carbon would be necessary to filter the shower water.
CONTACT TIME: Water must be in contact with the activated carbon for a sufficient period of time to allow the activated carbon to effectively adsorb the contaminants. With a cartridge size of approximately 2.5 to 3 inches, shower filters containing carbon do not contain sufficient media to adsorb at the above mentioned 2.5 GPM flow rate. Most drinking filters produce .5-1 GPM but
shower usage ranges from 2 - 2.5 GPM. (2 - 5 times greater).
TEMPERATURE: Carbon is a cold water media. It is most effective at temperature ranges of 50° - 80°(F). At higher temperatures, carbon becomes ineffective. Tap water, where carbon works best, has temperatures ranges from 60°- 75° (F). Showering temperatures typically range from 85° - 105° (F). Hot water should NEVER be run through a carbon filter, because hot water will tend to release, or “off-load”, trapped contaminants into the water flow potentially making the water leaving the filter more contaminated than the
water going in.
Bacterial Concerns with Carbon Shower filters: The major problem associated with carbon in any form is bacterial contamination. Wet activated carbon, richly infused with trapped organic matter, provides an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. High bacterial levels occur when the carbon is fully saturated and then let to stand [e.g., overnight]. As the water temperature inside the carbon cartridge rises, as with warm shower water, bacteria breeding escalates. Activated Carbon cannot hold onto bacteria, so when water flow is reintroduced a contaminated sample can be output. Bacteria gets into the activated carbon filter in the first place because disinfection at the water treatment plant does not guarantee the destruction of all bacteria.
Needs slower rate, ½ GPM, for
effective contact time

Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF-55) Water Filters -
Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF) is a high-purity copper-zinc formulation that uses a basic chemical process known as redox (oxidation / reduction) to remove chlorine, lead, mercury, iron, and hydrogen sulphide from water supplies. The process also has a mild anti-bacterial, algaecitic and fungicitic effect, and may reduce the accumulation of lime scale.
KDF process media is used in pre-treatment and primary treatment applications to supplement or replace existing technologies in order to extend system life and to reduce heavy metal contamination, chlorine and hydrogen sulphide. It is often combined with other technologies to achieve superior overall results. Because of its effectiveness at higher water temperatures, it is often used on shower water filtration systems to remove chlorine and other contaminants.
The technology was developed by KDF Fluid Treatment, Inc. in the mid 1980s and was patented in 1987. KDF filter media meets EPA and Food and Drug Administration standards for levels of zinc and copper in potable water, and is certified by NSF International to its Standard 61 for drinking water.
Chlorgon was invented and patented by David Farley of Sprite Industries.
Chlorgon converts free-chlorine and some combined chlorines into harmless chloride.
This is done using a chemical reaction known as "Reduction-Oxidation", often called Redox. Redox reactions transfer electrons between molecules of the filtration media and molecules found in the water.
A molecule of free chlorine is transformed to a larger chloride, which is water soluble and unable to be absorbed through the skin.
The Chlorgon Redox reaction occurs at a wide range of water temperatures, so it's an excellent complement to KDF-55, which works best at warmer temperatures.
Sprite shower filters use both KDF-55 and Chlorgon filtration. This combination provides the most complete removal of combined chlorine and free chlorine at the widest range of shower temperatures.
Your Sprite Shower Filter arrives already assembled and attaches
easily to your shower pipe. No Special tools are required (in most situations).
replaceable filter cartridge is easily reversed for a back wash
mode. This ensures optimum performance. Life expectancy is about 60,000 litres(15,000 gallons) or approximately 12 to 18 months, depending on water
quality. The filter cartridge can be replaced in less than a minute.

2009, October. Jayana McMahon, Eagle Heights, Mt Tamborine, QLD, Australia. "I just wanted to say a big thank you for being so clear and taking a stand on sharing the info about the removal of the shower rose heads [Sprite
Shower Filter] and why. I am also totally disgusted and its a complete joke.
Having worked hard to keep a level of health for many years, against all the nay-sayers in the medical profession who said I would be this or that, dependent on medication etc , I found not only did I have to do my own research, and trial and error but I would often have the added maddening obstacle of Govt rules and policies snatch life enhancing products out of my grasp just as I began to have good results.
I wonder if its time to start looking for a new planet to live on, one filled with intelligent, life affirming, compassionate and generous beings, humans welcome. In health and hope, Jayana"
