If you have been struggling with excessive amounts of hard water in your shower, a filtered shower head may be the answer for you. An estimated 85% of the United States population has hard water in their household, while only 30% utilize water softeners.
Rather than installing an entire water softener, installing a filtered shower head may be a quick and easy solution to hard water in your shower.
Tons of benefits await just from making this one change, but we’ve laid out a few to get you started!
Chlorine in water can break down the vitamins and natural oils that keep your hair and skin looking healthy. Filtered shower heads eliminate those chemicals leading to many health benefits, including:
Not only will you save money on beauty products used to combat the effects of hard water, but you will also not have to deal with the potential health bills from unfiltered water.
Most filtered shower heads also act as low-flow shower heads, reducing your water bill in the long run.
Regular shower heads can build up surprising amounts of bacteria and molds not visible. Filtered shower heads will filter out many of those bacteria and keep them from getting into your system.
Daily exposure to chlorine can worsen symptoms of asthma or other respiratory illnesses. So, a filtered shower head will filter out chlorine, thus improving your respiratory health by limiting chlorine exposure.
Hard water stains and build-ups can be some of the most annoying things to clean in the bathroom. A filtered shower head eliminates the problem at the source and keeps you from having to clean those pesky mineral build-ups.
