Chlorine Free Showers:
Scientists warn, you can inhale and /or absorb chlorine vapours and other pollutants while showering.
Tests show that the body absorbs more chlorine by taking a ten minute shower than by drinking 8 glasses of the same water.
The SH-CQ/3 utilises the latest multi-stage filtration technology,consisting of polypropylene pre-filters, KDF-55 ‘Golden sand media’ and special flow improving baffles. Firstly the pre-filter mesh removes dirt and sediment from the water, prolonging the life of the shower filter. The KDF-55 ‘Golden sand media’ then removes up to 95% of harmful chlorine and chemicals from the water, along with up to 98% of soluble heavy metals. This gives you a luxurious shower free of bleaching and harmful chemicals, the benefits are not only restricted to you health however.
People who have coloured hair and highlights will notice that without the bleaching effect of chlorine, the colour of their hair will stay more vibrant for longer. Expensive soaps and shampoos designed to be mild are counteracted by chemicals in water, experience their true effect with pure clean bathing water. You will experience greatly reduced skin irritation when showering, even without the use of expensive bathing supplements. Vapours containing bleach will be nearly eliminated, therefore relieving any nasal irritation you may be suffering from. Our latest shower filter also contains special flow baffles; this means the filter can be used for both high and low pressure applications.

Drinking unfiltered tap water has been scientifically shown to turn essential nutrients into toxic chemicals and it is essential for your health regime to drink sufficient quantities of pure water every day.Water makes a vital contribution to your overall health, fitness and life expectancy and plays a role in nearly every bodily function.Many of us are chronically dehydrated without even realising and this has been shown to be a factor in many degenerative diseases. Bottled water is used widely to avoid the health risks of tap water, but European standards for bottled water are actually lower than those for tap water in the UK!

Aluminium sulphate, chlorine and fluoride are added deliberately at the waterworks - numerous studies have linked these substances to a variety of health conditions.However our tap water is exposed to even more toxic substances in its journey to our taps - studies have reported up to 700 different contaminants in our drinking water including fertilisers, chlorine, fluoride, antibiotics, nitrates and an array of harmful bacteria.Water filters are the only way to avoid exposure to such chemicals and offer a cost effective alternative.
Daily washing with chlorinated water causes a high level of absorption of chlorine into the blood, and can be as much as one would absorb by drinking chlorinated water. To protect against this it is advisable to use a separate shower filter.
GS2 Stand Alone Water Filter
A free standing unit consisting of two stainless steel containers with lid, tap, base ring and 2 ceramic filter candles. Produces up to 50 litres of water per day and is far more effective at removing contaminants than jug filters. The upper container is filled with mains water which percolates through the filter candles into the lower container. The water is purified and free from bacteria, parasites, heavy metals and chemicals.Healthy minerals such as calcium and magnesium are retained. The crystal-clear water is ready for immediate use or storage in the frige. Unit measures 209mm x 486mm, replacement cartridges (1 years use / 4,000 litres)
Under the Sink Water Filters
Imagine the benefits of having purified water straight from your tap - giving you the freedom and convenience to drink, wash and cook with pure water at very little cost. Both water filters are easy to fit with basic DIY skills - full installation instructions are provided.
The MP1K Fountain Fresh Water System
This removes virtually all harmful contaminants from water yet retains essential minerals for good health and taste. The MP1K removes more pollutants than any other single cartridge system. The unit is complete with fountain tap, tubes and fittings, all certified and complying with UK Water Bylaws. It is built to last with all stainless steel systems carrying a 10-year guarantee; the remainder of the system has a 12 month warranty.Replacement Cartridges (Approx 1 years use / 4,000 litres)
MP2K Fountain Fresh Water System
This system has all the benefits of the MP1K but with an additional housing giving a higher flow rate and capacity and a longer replacement cartridge period.Delivers up to 4 litres of pure fresh water per minute.
In addition to the MP1K cartridge (described below) with its world-beating, six-stage, ceramic filtration process, the second cartridge brings additional performance and even purer water. Replacement Cartridges (Approx 1 years use / 4,000 litres)
Six Steps to Clean, Clear Tap Water
Stage 1: A ceramic barrier filters 99.99% of all particles larger than one micron (not visible to the naked eye). This includes bacteria, parasites, metals, organic matter and other chemicals. As deposits accumulate on the filter's outer surface, they can be easily removed, allowing the cartridge to be re-used again and again.
Stage 2: A premium grade Granular Activated Carbon filler eliminates organic pollutants such as agricultural pesticides and herbicides. Silver impregnation reduces the build-up of any remaining bacteria.
Stage 3: A different type of Carbon filter removes chlorine and improves taste and smell. Silver impregnation provides a second barrier to bacteria.
Stage 4: Special flow baffles improve the efficiency of the filtration process.
Stage 5: This ion exchange resin takes out dissolved metals such as cadmium, lead, copper and mercury.
Stage 6: A pure polypropylene layer prevents the escape of any carbon or resin particles.
How does the MPIK system work?
By lifting or pressing the 'touch-flo' lever on the tap body, cold water is diverted through a non-return valve to the purification unit located under the sink. The housing of this unit contains the replaceable Fresh Water 1000-25-SM cartridge. The cartridge is constructed in six stages:
a) An outer shell of microporous ceramic that removes harmful bacteria, protozoa cysts and all particles above 0.9 (microns). The ceramic element is proven to remove 99.99% of particles between 0.6 - 0.7 (microns). For comparative purposes a red blood cell is approximately 5 (microns) in size while the lower field of human vision is estimated at 20.
