Aquanator Shower Filter: Never Travel Without One

By Dr. Bob McCauley

A shower filter.  I never go anywhere without one.  I don’t.   The first thing I do when I get
into a hotel room is take out my pliers, take off the shower head and put on the shower filter I bring with me on every trip I take, whether I am staying in a hotel or a rented apartment.

I take the shower filter out, the filter and my pliers and put them through airport security screening so my luggage doesn’t get searched.  The pliers must be under 7″ (17.5cm) to be shower-filter-boxallowed on a plane these days.  No problem. 5″ pliers work just fine.

Chlorine is an unstable molecule that wants to bind with anything it can get its hands on. Aquanator_Shower_Filter-FILTERSWhen it comes in contact with bacteria or viruses, it destroys them in seconds.  However, when it comes in contact with your skin it damages it.  And in a hot shower your skin will absorb up to 12 times any substance, including chlorine, if it is present.   In a hot shower, the steam becomes a carrier for the chlorine which essentially turns it into a form of chlorine gas that is breathed directly into your lungs.  Chlorine is terrible for you on every level.  It’s a known carcinogen – cancer causing element.

KDF removes free chlorine from the water by converting it into an environmentally safe and harmless soluble known as zinc chloride.  That’s why we sell the Aquanator Shower Filter with a replaceable filter cartridge.  The Aquanator Shower Filter will typically remove more than 90% of the free chlorine.  Don’t go anywhere without one!
