The world's most popular shower filter
New chrome covered solid brass design with lifetime warranty.
Chlorine is universally used to disinfect water, killing bacteria and other micro organisms.
But once it arrives in your home, chlorine can negatively affect your family's long term health, comfort, and even personal appearance. Sprite Shower Filters with patented Chlorgon non-carbon media outperforms other filters for chlorine removal in hot shower conditions. The world leader in shower filtration technology for 15 years, Sprite has earned more than 18 U.S. and international patents.
For Softer Hair and Smoother Skin
Millions own water filters to remove chlorine from drinking water. But 50% of chlorine exposures occurs in the shower. Unfiltered shower water can double their exposure to chlorine by absorption through the skin and by inhalation of chlorine vapours . Sprite filters chlorine for softer hair and smoother skin. Now you can fight brittle hair, dry skin and dandruff - where health and beauty begin - right in your shower.
Breathe easier with Sprite
Chlorine vaporises in hot shower water and, when inhaled into the lungs, is transferred into the blood stream. Scientific studies have linked chlorinated water to potentially harmful by-products that can, over time, contribute to such health-threatening conditions as cancer of the bladder, liver, stomach and colon. Heart disease, high blood pressure and allergies have also been linked with chlorine. Sprite Shower Filtration helps reduce these risks - so you can breathe easier.
Only Sprite's Shower Filters combines patented high strength construction with an exclusive patented filtration media using KDF and Chlorgon -
KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion) is a patented specialty medium used in most shower filters and in other water filtration venues. Chlorgon is a patented special filter medium unique to Sprite products.
Chlorgon™ - the only non-carbon filtering media to remove:
- Free Chlorine (CI-)
- Combined Chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite)
- Lead (Trace amounts)
- Hydrogen Sulphide (rotten egg smell)
- Iron oxide (rust water)
- Dirt, sediment
- pH balanced
The "high output" cartridge is free-flowing and much less prone to premature failure due to blockage than all-KDF units. The High Output is also one of the easiest shower filter to install and to service. Sprite avoids the pitfalls of some other shower filters.
The High Output Shower Filter Cartridge removes chlorine for one year or 60,000 litres (15,000 gallons). Please keep in mind that some shower filters have to work a lot harder than others. Replacement cartridges are available.
Many shower filters do not have a replacement cartridge and must be thrown away - usually within a year!
- Helps dry and brittle hair become softer and more manageable.
- Low flow shower head design saves money.
- Lasts ten times longer than other filters.
The High-Output Shower Filter (HO) contains a reversible filter cartridge that will filter the shower water for one year. This high performance shower filter combines easy operation and maintenance with the ultimate in structural integrity and over-all reliability. The HO is the strongest replaceable shower filter available on the market today.
Shower Filter Features
- Easy Installation
- Removes 100% of chlorine (according to the manufacturer)
- High Capacity Filter
- Ultra-High Strength Housing
- Reversible Filter Cartridge (Model HOC)
- Cartridge Life Rating: 1 year
- Fits all showers with 1/2" pipe thread connections
- Has reversible replaceable cartridge with 1 year life
- Size: 3.5"D 4.25"L
Suggested Maintenance: The cartridge is reversible. It can be easily rotated to operate in either direction. Although rotating the cartridge is not required, and many users don't bother, periodically reversing the cartridge backwashes the cartridge as it is filtering, ensuring balanced filtration, and reduces channelling of the filter medium. It should also prolong its life.
Q. What are the advantages of reversing the cartridge?
A. Reversing the cartridge is done to provide “optimal” filtration. Be sure to shake the filter cartridge to keep the filtering materials loose. This will provide better contact time with the water and thus better filtration.
Q. At what point should I reverse the filter?
A. You can reverse the filter every month for optimal life span.
Q. If I don't turn it around, do I still get 12 months life span?
A. Yes - just maybe not as effective over time.
Q. Does it remove any fluoride?
Please Note: Sprite formerly called the "High Output Shower Filter" the "Replaceable Shower Filter". It’s exactly the same product, and the "High Output" cartridges offered here will fit your "Replaceable" model. If your unit is called HO or RSF the current HO cartridge will fit it.
Showering in warm water opens the pores of the skin and allows a high rate of absorption of chlorine and other chemicals.
In fact, the steam we inhale while showering can contain up to 20 times the level of chlorine and other synthetic chemicals than tap water. This is because these toxic chemicals found in tap water vaporise at lower temperatures and at a much faster rate than water.
A report in the American Journal of Public Health linked chlorine to significant increases in certain types of cancer and stated that "up to 2⁄3 of the harmful exposure was due to skin absorption and inhalation while showering".
Inhalation of chlorine and chemical vapours is known to be a strong irritant to the tissues in our lungs and is suspected to be a leading cause of asthma and bronchitis.
When chemicals are inhaled into our lungs, they enter directly into our bloodstream and the adverse effects are magnified, compared to ingested chemicals which are partially filtered out by the liver and kidneys.
Without the effects of chlorine and other chemicals found in tap water, your skin and hair retain moisture more effectively for a younger, healthier look and feel.
