When my daughter asked me if we had a water filter for shower, I had no idea what she was talking about. I told her that we use filtered water for drinking, but that filter is in the kitchen. She asked me about the water in the shower though and how we are filtering it. Again, I had no idea what she was even asking because I had just never heard of people filtering their shower water. She explained what she had learned in school that week, which was how all kinds of pollutants get into our water.
Most kids had water filters in their kitchens at home, but only a couple knew that they had a shower filter. I still was not sure what a water shower filter would do, so I went online to learn more about it. I was really surprised with what I found out too. I had no idea that there were so many things in the shower water. I had never really thought about it before, but I guess I just figured it was all okay because none of the water goes into our bodies. That is where I was wrong though.
I paid attention the next time I took my shower, and I did notice water droplets going into my mouth. It is really inevitable, and I was surprised at the amount that I could tell was going into my mouth. After reading about the things that can be found in shower water like chlorine, metals, bacteria and so much more, I knew this was something we had to start taking seriously. I ordered a shower filter that same day, and it was so easy to install when it arrived that I didn’t even need any help. Now we are all taking much nicer showers knowing it is there!
