Can Showering Make You Sick?

Pathogens such as Naegleria can infect people who bathe or shower in water containing the disease. For this reason, it's important to choose a shower filter that can remove bacteria and pathogens. The water filter you use for your kitchen sink or that comes with your special water filter is probably a carbon filter. These filters remove chlorine to improve the taste and odor of water. For your shower water filter, you need something stronger. Look for a shower water filter that mentions pathogen removal on the packaging.
