NEW! IMPROVED! Showerwise Deluxe Shower Filter
(Replaces the original Showerwise Shower Filter)
Get a fresher, cleaner, chlorine-free shower
Chlorine is used to disinfect most tap water. But chlorine can make your skin dry, sensitive, flaky, and itchy. It irritates your eyes and makes your hair dry and unmanageable. Worse yet, chlorine and chlorine by-products aggravate symptoms for many asthma, allergy, sinus and emphysema sufferers.
Chlorine reduced by 95%
The Deluxe Showerwise Filtration System converts chlorine to a harmless chloride. Showerwise also reduces or removes combined chlorine, hydrogen sulfide (sulfur), mercury, sediment, iron oxide, odour and more ... and it prohibits bacterial growth.

Say 'No' to Chlorine
Chlorine is 'a gaseous, greenish-yellow element used as a bleaching and disinfecting agent'. It is added to all tap water as a disinfectant, to kill bacteria. The chlorine in your water is designed to attack living organic matter … and we are living organic matter!
In your shower water, chlorine is one of a number of vaporised chemicals that can adversely affect your health. The skin is the body's largest organ. Warm shower water opens your pores, causing your skin to act like a sponge. Tests have shown that your body can absorb more chlorine by taking a 10 minute shower, than by drinking 8 glasses of the same water.
Chlorine also bonds with, and destroys, proteins in your hair, making it dry and unmanageable. It can make your scalp dry, worsen dandruff, and ruin tinted or chemically treated hair. Your skin and eyes may become dry and itchy.
Small children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems are more susceptible.
"There is evidence that shows that chlorine can destroy protein in our body and cause adverse effects on skin and hair." Dr. Riddle, PhD, Kemysts Laboratory
"In terms of cumulative damage to your health, showering in chlorinated water is one of the most dangerous risks you take daily. Short-term risks include: eyes, sinus, throat, skin and lung irritation. Long-term risks include: excessive free-radical formation (that ages you!) higher vulnerability to genetic mutation and cancer development; and difficulty metabolizing cholesterol, causing hardened arteries." Science News - www.sciencenews.org
"We conclude that skin absorption of contaminants in drinking water has been underestimated and that ingestion may not constitute the sole or even primary route of exposure." American Journal of Public Health, May, 1984, Vol. 74, No. 5
"Showering is suspected as the primary cause of elevated chloroform in nearly every home because of the chlorine in the water. Chloroform [a known carcinogen] levels increase up to 100 times during a ten-minute shower in residential water." Environmental Protection Agency - Dr. Lance Wallace
"Ironically, even the Chlorine widely used to disinfect water produces Carcinogenic traces. Studies indicate the suspect chemicals can also be inhaled and absorbed through the skin during showering and bathing." U. S. News & World Report - 29 July 1991, Is your Water Safe - The Dangerous State of Your Water
“Up to 2/3 of the harmful effects of chlorine are due to inhalation and skin absorption while showering.” The American Journal Of Public Health
“We have known for a long time that chloramines can trigger, rather than cause asthma.” Ralph Riley, head of the National Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group
“One common factor among women with breast cancer is that they all have 50-60% higher levels of these chlorination by-products (THMs) in their fat tissue than women without breast cancer...” BreastCancerFund.org
The Showerwise Deluxe Filter reduces the inhalation of vapours and the absorption of chemicals by effectively removing chlorine and other contaminants. The filter uses a proprietary, patented media called Chlorgon and KDF-55, a 'golden sand' made from a special high-purity copper and zinc alloy. As well as chlorine and chlorine by-products the Showerwise Deluxe removes other contaminants including iron, lead, arsenic, mercury and hydrogen sulphide. The filter also controls several types of bacteria, algae, fungi and mould. The inner stainless steel mesh strainer helps filter out dirt and sediment.
Inner Replaceable Filter Cartridge
The Showerwise Deluxe Filter has 10 to 20 times the life and effectiveness of any carbon-only filter. While a carbon filter works well in cold water only, the patented KDF and Chlorgon material used in the Showerwise performs best in warm or hot water. And Showerwise contains over 50% more filtering material for a longer effective lifetime than most ofther filters.
Easy to install
Showerwise installs easily by hand (no tools required) and the filter cartridge can be replaced in just a few minutes. The filter casing simply unscrews in two halves so the inner cartridge can be removed and replaced. Life expectancy of the cartridge is 12,500 UK gallons (15,000 US gallons) or approximately 12-18 months, depending on the water quality and frequency of use. The Showerwise Deluxe long life performance is a breakthrough in shower water treatment technology.
The Deluxe Showerwise has a standard British screw thread at both ends and simply screws into place on your existing shower. It can be fitted either next to the showerhead itself (as pictured on the American-style fixed shower above) or at either end of a shower hosepipe on UK-style showers. A short flexible hosepipe or elbow joints can be used to create an extended fitting for the Showerwise Deluxe Filter near the wall end of the hosepipe.
Alternatively, a short flexible hosepipe can be fitted between the showerfilter and a hand held showerhead as shown below. This should allow the filter to hang below the showerhead holder so the showerhead is more stable and not top heavy.
Short flexible hosepipes are now available from Wholistic Health Direct - see options and related products below.
