What is Wrong with other Shower Filters?

In an activated carbon filter (AC), chlorine is attracted to and held (absorbed) into the surface of the carbon particles. AC filters have been shown to be effective in reducing certain organic chemicals and chlorine in cold water. Unfortunately, the efficiency of absorption is quickly nullified when the water becomes warm. (the Ultra pHresh shower filter works as well in hot or cold water).
In addition, some activated carbon shower filters can become clogged very quickly by the dirt it is meant to stop. As soon as this occurs, it immediately starts to supply dirty water. Due to these flaws, the lifetime of an activated carbon shower filter can be very short.

KDF, another widely used de-chlorination filter, is comprised of copper and zinc. It removes chlorine by reversing the electrochemical process that originally separated the chlorine from sodium. It cannot, however, remove chloramines, another toxic chemical.
Unlike the Ultra pHresh, the efficiency of some KDF filters depends on the temperature of the water. KDF shower filters can also be affected by water pressure. When the water pressure is low, water simply cannot pass through the filter contents effectively.
The major problem of KDF shower filters is that the lifetime of the filter depends on the quality of the water passing through it. This is truly a catch-22. A water filter is needed most when our water quality is bad. Dirt can quickly covers the surface of the KDF filter which, in turn, makes the filter less effective almost immediately.

Other shower filter manufacturers use sulfur-based compounds such as calcium sulfite or sodium sulfite (or sulfate) as de-chlorinating agents. The addition of excess sulfite and sulfate chemicals to our water supplies has always been a concern. These sulfur-based compounds can be toxic to humans.

bullet Ultra pHresh filters shows exceptional performance in dirty water; under hot AND cold temperatures.

bullet Ultra pHresh is also more environmentally conscious than traditional activated carbon, KDF or sulfur-based chemicals such as calcium (or sodium) sulfite or sulfate. Vitamin-C is not toxic to humans and is known to boost the immune system and improve skin and hair.

Benefits of Vitamin C

Ultra pHresh is a specialty shower filter that utilizes the power of Vitamin-C to neutralize 100% of the chlorine and chloramines in your bath and shower water.

It is widely known that Vitamin-C is a powerful anti-oxidant inside the human body. What is not well-known is that Vitamin-C also acts as a neutralizing agent when it comes into contact with chlorine and chloramine.
The Vitamin-C in the Ultra pHresh filter also provides an additional source of Vitamin-C; an essential nutrient for a healthy body.
The Ultra pHresh Shower Filters utilize ascorbic acid chemistry for de-chlorination. Vitamin-C does not hold the chlorine; it neutralizes chlorine from an toxic substance into a harmless compound.
In more simple terms, Vitamin-C changes chlorine and chloramine from something that can cause you harm to things that cause NO HARM. Our filter effectively removes the harmful affects of chlorine and chloramine from your water source.

Vitamin C is known for building a strong immune system and as a nutrient for skin and hair. The use of Vitamin C is more environmentally conscious than traditional activated carbon, KDF or sulfur-based chemicals such as calcium (or sodium) sulfite or sulfate. Vitamin C is not toxic to humans and is safe for the tenderest skin.

bulletThe Ultra pHresh vitamin C shower filter lets you enjoy chlorine-free, odorless, clean and nutrient-rich showers year round.

ASCORBIC ACID REDUCTION OF RESIDUAL ACTIVE CHLORINE IN POTABLE WATER PRIOR TO HALOCARBOXYLATE DETERMINATION
JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING 2 (3): 253-256 2000

Urbansky ET, Freeman DM, Rubio FJ US EPA, Off Res and Dev, Natl Rick Management Res Lab, Water Supply and Water Resources Div, Cincinnati, OH 45268 USA

Abstract:
In studies on the formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs), it is necessary to scavenge residual active (oxidizing) chlorine in order to rx the chlorination byproducts (such as haloethanoates) at a point in time. Such research projects often have distinct needs from requirements for regulatory compliance monitoring. Thus, methods designed for compliance monitoring are not always directly applicable, but must be adapted. This research describes an adaptation of EPA Method 552 in which ascorbic acid treatment is shown to be a satisfactory means for reducing residual oxidizing chlorine, i.e., HOCl, ClO-, and Cl-2, prior to determining concentrations of halocarboxylates. Ascorbic acid and rapidly reduces oxidizing chlorine compounds, and it has the advantage of producing inorganic halides and dehydroascorbic acid as opposed to halogenated organic molecules as byproducts. In deionized water and a sample of chlorinated tap water, systematic biases relative to strict adherence to Method 552 were precise and could be corrected for using similarly treated standards and analyte-fortified (spiked) samples. This was demonstrated for the quantitation of chloroethanoate, bromoethanoate, 2,2-dichloropropanoate (dalapon), trichloroethanoate, bromochloroethanoate, and bromodichloroethanoate when extracted, as the acids, into tert-butyl methyl ether (MTBE) and esterified with diazomethane prior to gas chromatography with electron capture detection (GC-ECD). Recoveries for chloroethanoate, bromoethanoate, dalapon, dichloroethanoate, trichloroethanoate, bromochloroethanoate, bromodichloroethanoate, dibromoethanoate, and 2-bromopropanoate at concentrations near the lower limit of detection were acceptable. Ascorbic acid reduction appears to be the best option presently available when there is a need to quench residual oxidants fast in a DBP formation study without generating other halospecies but must be implemented cautiously to ensure no untoward interactions in the matrix.

ASCORBIC ACID REDUCTION OF ACTIVE CHLORINE PRIOR TO DETERMINE AMES MUTAGENICITY OF CHLORINATED NATURAL ORGANIC MATTER (NOM) JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING 2 (3): 253-256 2000

>Urbansky ET, Schenck KM US EPA, Off Res and Dev, Natl Rick Management Res Lab, Water Supply and Water Resources Div, Cincinnati, OH 45268 USA

Abstract:
Many potable water disinfection byproducts (DBPs) that result from the reaction of natural organic matter (NOM) with oxidizing chlorine are known or suspected to be carcinogenic and mutagenic. The Ames assay is routinely used to assess an overall level of mutagenicity for all compounds in samples from potable water supplies or laboratory studies of DBP formation. Reduction of oxidizing disinfectants is required these compounds can kill the bacteria or react with the agar, producing chlorinated byproducts. When mutagens are collected by passing potable water through adsorbing resins, active chlorine compounds react with the resin, producing undesirable mutagenic artifacts. The bioanalytical and chemoanalytical needs of drinking water DBP studies required a suitable reductant. Many of the candidate compounds failed to meet those needs, including 2,4-hexadienoic (sorbic) acid, 2,4-pentanedione (acetylacetone), 2-butenoic (crotonic) acid, 2-butenedioic (maleic and fumaric) acids and buten-2-ol (crotyl alcohol). Candidates were rejected if they (1) reacted too slowly with active chlorine, (2) formed mutagenic byproducts, or (3) interfered in the quantitation of known chlorination DBPs. L-Ascorbic acid reacts rapidly and stoichiometrically with active chlorine and has limited interactions with halogenated DBPs. In this work, we found no interference from L-ascorbic acid or its oxidation product (dehydroascorbic acid) in mutagenicity assays of chlorinated NOM using Salmonella typhimurium TA100, with or without metabolic activation (S9). This was demonstrated for both aqueous solutions of chlorinated NOM and concentrates derived from the involatile, ether-extractable chlorinated byproducts of those solutions.

Chlorine and Chloramine

To better appreciate the power of using a vitamin as the dechlorination agent in the Vitashower Shower Filter, the hazards in our water supplies must be better understood. These dangers are real and should not be overlooked or accepted by the general public.

Chlorine is universally used to chemically disinfect public water systems because of its toxic effect on harmful germs, bacteria and disease-causing organisms. As defined above, chlorine is a toxic gas. With greater exposure to toxic chlorine contained in water supplies, the potential health dangers increase.

During the bathing process, chlorine evaporates out of the water and is inhaled. This toxic gas can also spread through the house and be inhaled by others. Some reports claim that as much chlorine enters the body by inhaling steamy chlorinated shower vapors or through the open pores of the skin as that which enters the body by drinking chlorinated water during the entire day. This increased exposure to the adverse effects of chlorine by household residents can be from 6 to 100 times more than medically recommended.

Chlorine also attacks the skin and skin oils, creating a dermal drying effect. Shower water can also cause or worsen skin irritations and rashes as well as drying the skin. Showering and bathing in chlorinated water will also result in the breakage of hair shafts. Because chlorine is absorbed into the body through the skin, additional physical problems can ensue. Chlorinated water can also irritate eyes, leaving them red, itchy and burning. Inhaling the toxic steam can aggravate the sinuses and lungs. Chloramine, although a more stable compound, contains chlorine and ammonia and is also used to control bacteria in water systems. Its harmful effects are similar to chlorine.

Advantages of Vitamin over Traditional Technologies

Vitamin C dechlorination has a lengthy history. It has been used in EPA and APHA methods for the dechlorination of lab samples. In the medical industry, it is the standard for critical applications such as dialysis, where the introduction of chlorinated water or toxic chemical would be catastrophic. Breeders of rare fish also choose this method of dechlorination. Most recently, Vitamin dechlorination is being used in the treatment of water. It fully neutralizes both chlorine and chloramines.
There are several powerful arguments for using Vitamin C instead of KDF, activated carbon or sulfur-based compounds as dechlorination agents. Vitashower utilizes ascorbic acid chemistry for dechlorination. It is made with an essential vitamin for humans and many animals, known to boost the immune system, improve the condition of human skin and hair. It is also the safest and least toxic of dechlorination agents.

Research by the US Environmental Protection Agency found that L-Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) reacts rapidly and stoichiometrically with active chlorine and has limited interactions with disinfection byproducts. They found no interference from L-ascorbic acid or its oxidation product (dehydroascorbic acid) in mutagenicity assays of chlorinated NOM using Salmonella typhimurium TA100, with or without metabolic activation.
