This High Output Shower Filter Cartridge is easy to DIY replace so you can always enjoy the luxury of high output filtered shower water. Filtering shower water to reduce your chlorine exposure can be a great way to promote healthier, hydrated skin and softer hair.
Why use a shower filter? Disinfection chemicals like chlorine are often added to our town water supplies to kill germs and bacteria. However, in hot shower water, the chlorine can vaporise and be inhaled while also being absorbed through our skin. Some people experience dry, itchy skin, brittle hair, irritated sore eyes and worsened health conditions (such as asthma and eczema) from exposure to chlorinated water. Once the water has safely arrived to your home, the disinfection chemicals have done their job and there is no need to shower in them – so use a shower water filter!
Pure and simple science: The High Output Shower Filter Cartridge works by using Sprite’s special patented filtration media, Chlorgon, and the Redox process to convert chlorine into harmless chloride molecules. Chloride molecules are too large to be absorbed by skin or vaporise into steam that can be inhaled – unlike potentially harmful chlorine molecules.
Chlorgon is the powerful blend of copper, zinc and calcium sulphide inside the cartridge that filters water when it passes through. Chlorgon does not slow down your water flow rate, is designed specifically for hot water use and actually becomes more efficient when water temperatures increase (maximum temperature = 49°C).
The High Output Shower Filter Cartridge is easy to DIY replace (does not require a plumber). This cartridge is better for your body and better for the environment, as it is easy to recycle. Simply poke a hole in the cartridge’s screen and empty the contents into garden soil. The cartridge is then able to be placed with other recyclables.
The High Output Shower Filter Cartridge is recommended by Sprite to be replaced every 12 months for optimum filtering performance.
Please note, all cartridges may be subject to replacement earlier than the recommended period. This is dependant on individual usage and varying Australian water quality.
