The AQ-4100 Deluxe Shower Filtration System
The AQ-4100 Pure Shower System is by far the most effective shower filtration system in the world! While shower filtration has rapidly grown in popularity over the last decade and many companies have entered the market… we were the first and are still the best! This patented 2 stage filtration system attaches easily to standard shower pipes and provides chlorine free, pH balanced water for the healthiest, most refreshing shower experience ever. 2 Stage replaceable filter cartridge lasts 10,000 gallons.
In Stage One water flows through a granular copper/zinc(KDF-55) media for the reduction of chlorine and to enhance pH balance.
In Stage Two a high grade of coconut shell carbon is used
for the reduction of synthetic chemicals that can vaporize and
be inhaled with steam while showering.
“The AQ-4100 Shower Filtration System is one of the most unique and beneficial products ever developed.”
Dr. Ranya Alexander PhD., M.D.
With the realization that more chemicals enter our body through skin absorption and inhalation of steam while showering than does from drinking water, the benefits of shower filtration have become very obvious.
A recent report in the American Journal of Public Health linked chlorine to significant increases in certain types of cancer and stated that “up to 2/3s of the harmful exposure was due to skin absorption and inhalation while showering”.
A warm shower opens the pores of the skin and allows a high rate of absorption of chlorine and other chemicals. The steam we inhale while showering can contain up to 20 times the level of chlorine and other synthetic chemicals than tap water due to the fact that these chemicals vaporizes at a lower temperature and at a much faster rate than water. Inhalation of chlorine and chemical vapors is known to be a strong irritant to the tissues in our lungs and a suspected cause of asthma and bronchitis. When chemicals are inhaled into our lungs they enter directly into our bloodstream and can have magnified effects versus ingested chemicals which are partially filtered by our liver and kidneys.
Other than the obvious health benefits of showering in chemical free water, the cosmetic benefits are even more noticeable. Anyone who has ever gone swimming in a chlorinated pool can relate to the harsh drying effect that chlorine has on your skin and hair. Without the effects of chlorine and other chemicals found in tap water, your skin and hair retain moisture more effectively for a younger healthier look and feel.
In the last decade, asthma rates have increased over 100%, over 300% for children!
Many experts now believe this is due to the decline of indoor air quality. People spend more and more time inside their homes, homes are built much more air tight than in the past and indoor levels of volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) have increased sharply. All of these factors have contributed to the high rates of asthma and other respiratory problems.
Chlorine and other harmful chemicals vaporize into the indoor air primarily from showering and bathing. The U.S. EPA states that "Elevated levels of chloroform gas can be detected in virtually every American home due to chlorine in shower water...". When chlorine vaporizes and combines with other organic compounds in the air it becomes "chloroform gas", a strong irritant to the tissues in our lungs. Chloroform gas causes fatigue and mucus build up in the lungs.
Many doctors now recommend shower filters or whole home filters for people with asthma and other respiratory problems. The first shower filter was invented after a Texas family discovered that their 6 month old son's "chronic asthma" was actually a sensitivity to chlorine vapors.
Shower water filtration can offer genuine asthma prevention and treatment benefits as well as cosmetic benefits.
Chlorine not only does harm to our body when inhaled, but also is absorbed through the skin and causes dryness to skin and hair.
Cure & Prevent Eczema & Other Skin Disorders.
Skin disorders like eczema, scoria sis and chronic dryness are all heavily effected by the moisture content of the skin.
Showering and bathing in chlorinated tap water robs skin and hair of their natural protective oils, causing scaling and itching. Chlorine is a strong oxidant and causes damage to skin and hair even at very low levels. Most tap water maintains a residual chlorine level greater than is recommended for swimming pools, 1.5 ppm.
Chlorine also kills much of the beneficial bacteria on the surface of the skin that offers a natural defence against skin disorders.
By removing chlorine from our shower water, where most of the exposure to chlorine occurs, and keeping our bodies hydrated properly, we allow our body's natural healing mechanisms to work properly. In many cases shower filtration can help prevent and cure skin disorders. As with most health problems, prevention is usually more effective than treatment.

Once you’ve experienced it you’ll never go back”
The History of AQ-4100 ...
The AQ-4100 Pure Shower System is the result of over 15 years of experience in manufacturing, sales and marketing of shower filtration systems.
The market for shower filters has grown from nonexistent in the early 1990s to an explosive high profile industry.
With a shift in focus by the science and medical community to prevention and “root cause” treatments rather than damage repair, shower filters will continue to grow in popularity.
Few products offer the range of benefits realized with shower filtration. Consumers are amazed at the immediate cosmetic benefits of showering in chlorine, chemical free water … while discovering great health and wellness advantages with continued use.
People with asthma, bronchitis, respiratory problems and skin conditions all experience surprising improvements from showering in filtered water.
Everything from childhood asthma to breast, bladder and colon cancer have been linked to the accumulation of chlorination by-products in our blood and fat tissue. And the recent realization that 2/3s of our exposure to chlorine comes from inhalation and skin absorption has caused an upspring of interest in shower filtration products.
The AQ-4100 shower system is the successor of 2 previous highly successful designs. With a total of 7 U.S. and International patents for shower filtration products, and over 4 million units sold in the last decade, Sun Water is the leader in shower filtration technology!
