If you live in a city, you can be certain there is chlorine added to your water. Municipal water treatment facilities must add this disinfecting chemical to ensure the water they provide is safe from bacteria growth as it travels to your home. Once the city's water has safely arrived to your door, this protective measure is no longer necessary and can be filtered before you ever step into the shower or pour your next glass of water.
The harsh smell and taste are common complaints, but chlorine can also dry out your hair and skin leaving you itchy and irritated. Depending on how much chlorine they add, it may become a nuisance for you and your family. Learn about various water treatment options and the best way to ensure your family is enjoying chlorine-free water at home everyday.
