If you care about the overall water quality in your life and your home, then you should definitely consider installing a water refiner for the whole house. Water refiners have two main functions: first they”soften” the water by removing calcium and magnesium. Secondly, they naturally remove chlorine, chemical tastes, odors, and sediment, making water cleaner and clearer for your whole house.
Most importantly, water refiners protect your health. Some fact to consider: during a 10-minute shower your body will take on 10 to 50 times the level of water-borne chemicals than from drinking a glass of the same water. During a warm shower, the pores of the skin open up and absorb chlorine and other chemicals at an accelerated rate. The steam you inhale during your shower is far more contaminated than the water itself due to the fact that synthetic chemicals, including chlorine, vaporize much faster than water. When we breath these vaporized chemicals (steam) they go directly into the blood-stream. Similarly, while bathing, the body’s largest organ, the skin, absorbs chlorine and chlorine by-products.
“Up to 2/3 of the harmful effects of chlorine are due to inhalation and skin absorption while showering.”
