One of the reasons that Tucson’s water gets high marks for being good water is the chemicals used to treat it. I’m okay with that, but, I don’t like the chlorine taste. So, I use a water pitcher with a filter. The water tastes great, I can refill my stainless steel bottle, not buy plastic bottles and life is good.
My other complaint is that my skin feels dry after a shower. Again, the chlorine plays its part. My home does not have a soft water system and I’m not ready to incur that expense. The gift of Sprite to the rescue (no, not the soda).
Sprite Industries makes a shower head (see photo, yes, that’s my shower) with a changeable, carbon filter. I used it for the first time this morning and loved it. My hair and skin feel softer, the steam was better to breath and I was happy knowing that the filter was taking away chlorine, dirt and iron oxide. I highly recommend getting one of these.
