Removing Chlorine from your Shower Water

Ever notice that you smell like a swimming pool when you get out of the shower? That’s because you are bathing in chlorine. Chlorine is used a disinfectant for almost all municipal tap water supplies, and it is not unusual to taste it in your drinking water and to smell it after taking a shower.

Chlorine may be necessary to disinfect the water, but it is not necessary for you to consume or to come in contact with. In fact, it may do more harm than good in these aspects. This is why it’s important to filter not just your drinking water, but also your showering water.

You may not know this is possible, but you can actually filter out chlorine from your showering water using a filter on the shower itself. Have a look at the following video:

As you can see, this is not a particularly elaborate advice, but it is effective. The other alternative would be to install a whole house filter, which would systematically remove the chlorine from all of your tap water. This way, you don’t have to worry about consuming or coming in contact with chlorine from any of your taps in the house. It should be said, however, that this method is considerably more expensive, so keep that in mind if you are thinking about installing one.
