Many people who have eczema or other dry skin conditions find that chlorine is harsh and abrasive on their skin. Some people avoid swimming entirely as it can lead to eczema flare-ups. The chlorine in swimming pools can strip skin and hair of its natural oils and proteins. This can lead to tight, red, itchy skin and dry hair. Severe eczema flare-ups can be very painful and uncomfortable. Chlorine fumes can also be inhaled into the lungs, aggravating asthma symptoms.
If you have eczema and you find that your condition gets worse when you go swimming, then we highly recommend that you do not expose your skin to chlorine in your bath or shower. In the UK, this chemical is added to all of our municipal water supplies to kill bacteria and this can aggravate your skin condition.
There are several different options for removing the chlorine and other contaminants from your water. A shower filter and a bath dechlorinator is a cost-effective, safe and easy way to remove the residual chlorine from your bath and shower water. Our shower filtration systems can be installed easily at home. Similarly, the Crystal Ball Bath Dechlorinator is very simple to use with no DIY required.
For a more complete solution to your whole house we have a range of whole house water filter systems. These filters will remove the chlorine from all of the water in your house so that all of your drinking and bathing water will be chlorine free.
