For the discerning home owner, the High Output and Slim Line shower filters are now available in extremely rugged and beautiful brass housings. You can get polished chrome, brushed nickel or oil rubbed bronze finishes to match your other bathroom fixtures. When you get one of these in your hands, you can really tell how high the quality is. If you currently have a hand-held shower head that you like, these brass housing are the way to go. They can handle the extra weight of the hand-held wand where a plastic shower filter may crack.
All Sprite shower filters are NSF certified under NSF standard 177. The NSF certification while expensive ensures that the shower filters will perform as advertised. NSF tests not only for contaminant reduction claims but also for structural integrity. Some manufacturers claim NSF standards but don't actually hold the NSF certification.
Some shower filter manufacturers seem to put little thought into aesthetics. Sprite's design philosophy combines form and function working together to produce the most beautiful shower filters on the market. The new all-in-one and hand-held shower filters will look at home in even in the most luxurious bathrooms.

Iron oxide (rust water)
in Your Shower...
Since chlorination is a long
established public health practice necessary for the disinfection of
drinking water, consumers are aware of the health benefit drinking
filtered water can provide. However, it's surprising for some people
to learn that 50% of their daily exposure is in the shower. The
other 50% comes from their drinking water. Therefore, filtering
shower water is equally as important, as filtering drinking water.
studies conclude that taking long hot showers is a health risk. In
the enclosed shower stall, chlorine vaporizes where it is inhaled.
To a lesser degree, dermal absorption also occurs. As chlorine is
added to kill pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, the
highly reactive chlorine combines with fatty acids and carbon
fragments to form a variety of toxic compounds. Medical studies
suggest a link between absorption and inhalation of chlorine in the
shower environment, with elevated risks for diseases and serious
illnesses. Showering in chlorinated water may also cause
pre-existing conditions, such as asthma and eczema, to become
In addition to health
benefits of filtering water, there are cosmetic benefits. Symptoms
of chlorine exposure are dry and/or flaking skin, dry brittle hair
and red irritated eyes. Filtering the shower water reduces these
symptoms. Skin and hair feel softer and eyes become less red and
filtration technology makes
In the shower environment,
chlorine can either be in liquid or gas state. At higher water
temperatures in the enclosed shower stall, free-chlorine moves from
the liquid to the gas state, where it vaporizes and subsequently,
inhaled. The United States regulates all showerhead flow at 2.5
gallons per minute. Thus, the science behind shower filtration must
take into account the unique situation in the shower, including
temperature, flow rate and volume.
shower filters work on a similar principle to a Catalytic Converter
in an automobile. In shower filtration free-chlorine is converted
into a harmless chloride. The scientific name for this chemical
reaction is known as "Reduction-Oxidation", commonly
referred to as Redox.
reactions can be chemically complex. Simply stated, during a Redox
reaction electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new
elements. For instance, when free-chlorine comes in contact with the
filtration media, it is changed into a benign, water-soluble
chloride. This reaction changes free-chlorine to a larger chloride
element. Too large to evaporate or be absorbed by the skin. It is
then carried harmlessly through the water supply.
Chlorgon is one
type of Redox filtration media. Researched, developed and patented
by David Farley, CEO of Sprite Industries, Inc., Chlorgon converts
free chlorine and some combined chlorines, such as sodium
hypochlorite (liquid swimming pool chlorine), to a harmless
chloride. Chlorgon also works well in a variety of temperatures from
hot to cold. Chlorgon is also the active ingredient for Sprite's Mediterranean
Blue: De-chlorinating Bath Salts.
Degreadation Fluxion, or KDF, is another type of Redox
filtration media. Researched, developed and patented by Don Heskett,
founder of KDF fluid treatment, KDF converts free chlorine to a
harmless chloride. This media of high-purity copper-zinc formulations
is used in
pretreatment, primary treatment, and wastewater applications. Patented
KDF process media are 100 percent recyclable and contain no chemical
additives. Hospitals, restaurants, municipal water treatment
facilities, and homes rely on KDF process media to safely reduce or
remove free chlorine, iron oxides and hydrogen sulfide.
All Sprite filtered
shower products contain both Chlorgon, and KDF filtration medias.
