How to remove chlorine from municipal water

Chlorine In Our Water - Good or Bad?

Not only does the quality of water affect its taste, but it also has a large effect on plumbing equipment. For households with municipal water supplies, the water tends to be somewhat hard (containing calcium and magnesium). Another concern aside from hard water is an excessive amount of chlorination. While chlorine ensures that the water is safe to drink, sometimes drinking water has more chlorine in it than the water found in a swimming pool. Unfortunately, excessive chlorine in water has negative effects. Even though it eliminates microorganisms, studies have linked chlorine to cancer and other health problems.

Additionally, chlorine can be very harsh on plumbing fixtures and pipes, potentially reducing their lifespan. Plastic and rubber items (such as the components on the inside of a toilet) rapidly deteriorate when exposed to high amounts of chlorine. It’s actually rather straightforward to combat high chlorine levels in the water supply.

If we were to install a whole-home filtration system, every tap in the entire home would dispense water that tastes like it came from a bottle. Even if you don’t mind the additional cost and environmental impact of consuming bottled water, you might not have considered how easily chlorine is absorbed into your skin. Every time you take a bath or shower with warm water, your pores open up and chlorine is absorbed with minimal resistance. This may sound unbelievable, but there’s an easy demonstration that we are glad to do whenever someone requests it.

We offer whole home filtration at an affordable rate that requires no maintenance on the system. It contains 5 stages of filtration or conditioning. Don't just soften your water, condition it!
