  3. The use of a countertop water filter and shower filter cannot entirely protect a home from harmful water contaminants.
  4. Shower filters, because they must filter water at extreme temperatures, are not 100% effective at removing all dangerous contaminants.
  5. Many skin rashes and other irritations are a result of chlorine and volatile organic chemicals VOCs) that have become embedded in clothing washed in chlorinated water.

  9. The 2100 known water contaminants can make their way into our bodies not just from drinking the actual water but also from inhalation and dermal absorption.
