What is Wrong with other Shower Filters?
In an activated carbon filter (AC), chlorine is attracted to and held (absorbed) into the surface of the carbon particles. AC filters have been shown to be effective in reducing certain organic chemicals and chlorine in cold water. Unfortunately, the efficiency of absorption is quickly nullified when the water becomes warm. (the Ultra pHresh shower filter works as well in hot or cold water).
In addition, some activated carbon shower filters can become clogged very quickly by the dirt it is meant to stop. As soon as this occurs, it immediately starts to supply dirty water. Due to these flaws, the lifetime of an activated carbon shower filter can be very short.
KDF, another widely used de-chlorination filter, is comprised of copper and zinc. It removes chlorine by reversing the electrochemical process that originally separated the chlorine from sodium. It cannot, however, remove chloramines, another toxic chemical.
Unlike the Ultra pHresh, the efficiency of some KDF filters depends on the temperature of the water. KDF shower filters can also be affected by water pressure. When the water pressure is low, water simply cannot pass through the filter contents effectively.
The major problem of KDF shower filters is that the lifetime of the filter depends on the quality of the water passing through it. This is truly a catch-22. A water filter is needed most when our water quality is bad. Dirt can quickly covers the surface of the KDF filter which, in turn, makes the filter less effective almost immediately.
Other shower filter manufacturers use sulfur-based compounds such as calcium sulfite or sodium sulfite (or sulfate) as de-chlorinating agents. The addition of excess sulfite and sulfate chemicals to our water supplies has always been a concern. These sulfur-based compounds can be toxic to humans.
Ultra pHresh filters shows exceptional performance in dirty water; under hot AND cold temperatures.
Ultra pHresh is also more environmentally conscious than traditional activated carbon, KDF or sulfur-based chemicals such as calcium (or sodium) sulfite or sulfate. Vitamin C is not toxic to humans and is known to boost the immune system and improve skin and hair.
Benefits of Vitamin C
Ultra pHresh is a specialty shower filter that utilizes the power of Vitamin-C to neutralize 100% of the chlorine and chloramines in your bath and shower water.
It is widely known that Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant inside the human body. What is not well-known is that Vitamin C also acts as a neutralizing agent when it comes into contact with chlorine and chloramine.
The Vitamin C in the Ultra pHresh filter also provides an additional source of Vitamin-C; an essential nutrient for a healthy body.
The Ultra pHresh Shower Filters utilize ascorbic acid chemistry for de-chlorination. Vitamin C does not hold the chlorine; it neutralizes chlorine from an toxic substance into a harmless compound.
In more simple terms, Vitamin C changes chlorine and chloramine from something that can cause you harm to things that cause NO HARM. Our filter effectively removes the harmful affects of chlorine and chloramine from your water source.
Vitamin C is known for building a strong immune system and as a nutrient for skin and hair. The use of Vitamin C is more environmentally conscious than traditional activated carbon, KDF or sulfur-based chemicals such as calcium (or sodium) sulfite or sulfate. Vitamin C is not toxic to humans and is safe for the tenderest skin.
The Ultra pHresh vitamin C shower filter lets you enjoy chlorine-free, odorless, clean and nutrient-rich showers year round.
Ultra pHresh uses the newest technology of Vitamin C filtration to dechlorinate your shower or bath water.
