A quick understanding of your water quality can help you decide if a shower water filter might be beneficial for you and your home:
Does your municipality use chlorine for treatment? And if so, how much?
Is your water hard?
You can generally find out how much chlorine is used in your communities’ water treatment online or by calling your local water board. You should also be able to access your water quality report online, which will tell you what kinds of contaminants are present in your water, and at what concentrations.
The bathroom is another important consideration when planning for your personal water experience. Showers, in particular, can cause problems if water is hard, or heavily treated with chemicals.
For example, cities commonly use chlorine to treat the water supply for bacteria and other contaminants, but this excess chlorine can be absorbed into the skin (sometimes in large quantities) when we’re showering, since most of us prefer to shower in warm water. The warmer the water, the more it opens pores, which effectively ushers chlorine (and any other water-borne contaminants that may be present in the water) right into the largest organ in our bodies —our skin.
Hot water can also cause any toxins, bacteria, or fungus in water to become airborne, turning a water-borne concern into a respiratory issue for some, especially those with already-compromised respiratory conditions like asthma.
How a Shower Water Filter Can Help
In addition to reducing chemical exposure when you shower, shower head filters can also improve your hair’s shine and feel, as well as support healthier, softer skin by minimizing contact with chemicals and toxins. If you choose a water filter that softens water as well, you’ll also notice that you need less soap, shampoo, and conditioner to get the job done as soft water helps very little product lather up quickly — saving you money with every single shower.
Shower head filters can be useful even — and especially — if you live in a dorm, rental home, or apartment, or somewhere that already features water filtration. Not all water filters are created equal, so unless you’ve done the research to know exactly what kind of water filter your water is passing through, it may not make much difference when it comes to your general health, hair or skin care routine.
Softeners and filtration systems need to be serviced regularly to be effective, so if your landlord or property manager isn’t on top of the recommended maintenance, a shower head filter can be a great choice to ensure your shower is not only safe, but easier on your hair and skin. An extra bonus? Your shower will also be easier to clean, since shower head filters make it less likely water will leave unsightly or hard-to-remove hard water spots and residue on the shower and fixtures.
