The Rainshow'r BATH 2000 is absolutely unique. It changes the chlorine in bath water from an element into a harmless compound.
When water comes in contact with the media filaments inside the fabric pouch, the chlorine ions in the water are converted into harmless zinc chloride. The toxic effects of chlorine, chloramine, and chlorine gas are eliminated with the aid of KDF Formula 73. More chlorine is removed faster if there is adequate circulation of the Crystal Ball in the water. The quartz crystals mixed with the media reduce the molecular structure of water into smaller clusters, thereby allowing enhanced sudsing and lathering of soap and healthier, younger-looking skin. Dechlorinates in minutes; just place in bath water!
What Is the Media Used to Dechlorinate and Treat the Water?
1.5 oz. KDF Formula 73 Copper-Zinc filament.
1 oz. Virgin American Crystalline Quartz.
What Is Special about the KDF Formula 73 Filament?
KDF Formula 73 (F-73) is a specially processed alloy of 70% copper and 30% zinc. The filament is processed by special machinery which produces a fine, hair-like strand of brass only 60 to 80 micons in thickness, about the same as a human hair.
Each BATH 2000 contains 1 _ oz. of F-73 strands which if laid end to end would extend over 4000 feet. This provides the BATH 2000 with a great surface area which in turn accelerates the electro-chemical action of the F-73.
How Does KDF Formula Work in Removing Chlorine?
As chlorinated water flows through the filament the dissimilar metals in KDF, (copper and zinc), create a galvanic or electrolytic reaction which causes the two chlorine ions to combine with a zinc ion to form a harmless zinc chloride (ZNCL2). KDF does not hold the chlorine. It changes the chlorine from an element into a harmless compound.
Please Explain How KDF F-73 Works in Removing Chloramines Form the Bath Water
Chlorine can combine with ammonia and nitrogen compounds to create chloramines. These chloramines smell bad and are body irritants. Chloramine smell is most often associated with the smell of indoor pools. But chloramines are also created by water treatment districts by adding ammonia to the water in order to disinfect water supplies and to comply with the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act.
Treatment plant chloramines (CL2:NH3) also reduce chlorine¹s ability to combine with organic matter which, when it occurs, can create a series of carcinogens called THM¹s or Trihalomethanes.
Chloramines are relatively stable and cannot be removed by a shower filter without the use of chemicals because the flow rate is too fast. This is not regarded as a dermal problem because exposure time to chloramines in a shower is very short. But, this is not the case in a tub bath where the user can deep soak for 20 minutes or more. Rainshow¹r Mfg. Co.¹s research and work experience with KDF in filament covers more than 10 years. Based on that work we knew if the motive or driving power of the filament could be increased we might break or destabilize the chlorine-ammonia bond. Our custom-made KDF Formula 73 does just that. KDF allows us to break the connection between chlorine and ammonia, liberating the free chlorine and allowing it to combine with zinc in the F-73. This instantly converts the free chlorine into a harmless zinc chlorine salt (ZNCL2).
This very simple and safe use of science¹s age old knowledge of dissimilar metals technology enables us to remove up to 100% of total chlorine at elevated bathing temperatures (105-110 degrees F) in about 4 to 5 minutes from the time the faucet is turned on.
What is the Advantage of Crystalline Quartz?
Our specially washed and sun dried quartz crystals help to "energize" the water by reducing the water¹s surface tension. This allows for an increase in sudsing and lathering of soaps and shampoos. The water has a "lighter" feel, similar to the feeling of softened water.
Are Any Materals Used In the Bath 2000 Either Harmful or Toxic?
No. KDF media is widely used in drinking water and water treatment systems. It also conforms to the U.S. Drinking Water Act (PL99-399 of 6/19/86).
