A Water Filtration Unit Can Remove Chlorine from Household Water
Many homeowners invest in a water filtration unit to effectively remove all traces of residual chlorine from household water. For decades, municipalities have been adding chlorine – a harmless, effective, simple-to-use, and inexpensive disinfectant – to public water supplies in order to make the water safe for drinking. No one can deny that chlorine serves an important public health purpose. However, despite its value in eliminating waterborne bacteria and disease-causing pathogens, chlorine can also cause some problems for homeowners.
Once water that has been thoroughly disinfected with chlorine reaches a home, the chlorine additives are no longer necessary. Nevertheless, they often remain in the water and, while they provide no benefits beyond that point, they can create unpleasant flavors and odors. Lingering chlorine can affect the taste and smell of tap water and everything that is prepared with it, including coffee, tea, and other beverages and foods. Chlorinated water can also make hair and skin feel dry after bathing or showering. The good news is that all of these nuisances can be easily addressed with the right water filtration unit.
A whole house water filtration unit with a high-grade carbon filter should be able to absorb chlorine, and thus eliminate its associated unpleasant tastes, odors, and organic compounds. As a result, fresh, clean water will be available throughout the home, delivered directly through the:
- Sink faucets
- Tub faucets
- Shower faucets
- Refrigerator water dispenser and ice maker
- Washing machine
When you think of all of the sources of water in a household, it’s easy to see why a whole house water filtration system can be a much more practical and cost-effective solution than individual filtration systems installed at each point of use. Filtering all household water in a single location, right before it enters a home, simply makes good sense – and good “cents.”
