Chlorine Taste & Odor Removal Whole-House Filters
Chlorine is a highly efficient disinfectant, and it is added to public water supplies to kill disease-causing bacteria that the water or its transport pipes might contain. Unfortunately this disinfecting method has not come without a price. Chlorine introduced into the water supply reacts with other naturally occurring elements to form toxins called trihalomethanes (THMs) which eventually make their way into our bodies. Several studies link moderate to heavy consumption of chlorinated tap water by pregnant women with higher miscarriage and birth defect rates. THMs in drinking water are linked to: asthma, eczema, bladder cancer and heart disease. One of the studies found that fourteen to sixteen percent of bladder cancers showed a direct correlation to drinking water containing high levels of chlorine byproducts. Chlorine removal at the point of entry (Whole House Filtration) could be achieved by using different types of activated carbon filters. The most economical solution is to install an Automatic Backwash Filter with a high quality carbon coconut media.
