Why Use a Bath Or Shower Filter
Studies have shown that more chlorine is absorbed through the skin during the average shower than by drinking two quarts of water.
Sprite 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.
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 is 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.
Sprite Shower – filtration media makes it possible…
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 molecule. This new salt-based molecule requires more energy (heat) to evaporate than a water heater at industry-standard maximum temperatures allows and is too large to be absorbed by the skin. It is then carried harmlessly through the water supply.
…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 to a harmless chloride salt. A proprietary blend of Copper, Zinc and Calcium Sulfide, Chlorgon works well in a variety of temperatures from hot to cold. It is also the active ingredient for Sprite’s Mediterranean Blue: De-chlorinating Bath Salts.
All Sprite filtered shower products contain Chlorgon.
Why not Carbon?
Of course, you don’t shower in cold water and wouldn’t use a 60 lb. shower filter. And we wouldn’t cut a carbon filter in half and expect it to adequately filter shower water. Instead, Sprite invested a great amount of research in developing a line of realistic catalytic shower filters that filter both free and combined chlorines, dirt, sediment, odors, hydrogen sulfide, iron oxides, and more, from your shower water.

Why Not Vitamin C? The scientific name for Vitamin C is “Ascorbic Acid. Yes, adding vitamin C changes the pH of the water to acidic. Acidic water can cause eye and skin irritation. For these reasons, Sprite Showers do not contain Carbon or Vitamin C.
