I would suggest you try the Vitamin C shower which utilizes replacement filters or the Vitamin C multi use filter which can be attached to your existing shower or washing machine,water softener.
Vitamin C is one of only a few mediums that are effective in removing chlorine in both hot and cold water.
Chlorine damages the skin and hair and will adversely effect many skin conditions.

Hope that helps

Sorry Rax but you are on the wrong track here.
The electronic item you are thinking about is not a filter its to stop limescale forming in the pipes and your electrical items like the kettle and washing machine.Thats all it does it will not remove the chlorine or hardness in the water.
Heating water does not restore chlorine in the water.
As i previously mentioned Only the Vitamin C filters or showers will effectively remove 99.9% of chlorine from hot water.Other filter mediums are only effective in cold water.
Like me do your research but the Vit C products are by far the best for this application.

After reading some opinions recommending a shower filter as a way to prevent/mitigate eczema I decided to buy it(40£). However, I've been using it in the last 6 weeks and my skin is not much different. I still have to use a lot of moisturiser and "eumovat". Best of luck,

Hello Paulo
I hope you didnt buy a KDF or carbon filter because i did the first time and they were useless.Apparently dont work in hot water only cold.
You need a Vitamin C filter either the shower with replaceable filters or the multi use shower filter.
Did the trick for me,highly recommended

Redox Chlorine Removal Filter[REDOX-P] this seems to be a good choice of filter as it involves the removal of dissolved gases and heavy metals from water by the means of a
electrochemical reaction produced by the redox
alloy of copper and zinc. Then the pollutants are trapped in the filtration unit and it has either a manual or an automatic backwash system that clears away the heavy metals chlorine etc every 12 days. The down side is it's about £600 not including fitting. seriously thinking about it as my son has had dreadful eczema all over his body and face and it has drastically improved since we started using a fridge water filter for all our drinks (including water for the kettle) his eczema is only on backs of knees and creases occasionally! However as soon as he has a quick bath or shower he is itching straight after, so hoping this might sort that out!
