Turn Your Well Water Into Swell Water with Culligan Water
When you think of the chemical chlorine, perhaps you think of swimming pools, paint, or cleaning products. But chlorine also exists in the water you use to bathe, clean, and hydrate. When present in water, it is often referred to as chlorinated water. Worried how it can affect your health? Here’s everything you should know about chlorine in your home’s water supply.
If you’re unsure about the elements in your water, it may be time to look. For a general synopsis of your water’s health, check the EPA’s yearly Consumer Confidence Report. Discover where your water is coming from and what impurities are hiding within it. For more precise results, get started with a free in-home water test from Culligan. Results will reveal whether your water has any traces of chlorine, heavy metals, and other impurities that can put you in danger.
Chlorinated water is nothing new. In fact, it’s been around since the early 1900s and arose as a medical breakthrough. At the time, waterborne diseases like cholera, typhoid fever and hepatitis were taking the lives of thousands of Americans. To combat the devastation, water distributors turned to chlorine, which reduced the harmful bacteria causing these illnesses. After much success in these efforts, chlorine continues to provide an affordable and sizable solution to disinfecting water supplies around the nation.
With water treatment plants readily adding this chemical to local water supplies, many homeowners are left wondering – is drinking chlorinated water harmful to your health? Due to the low concentration of chlorine in water supplies, drinking chlorine-contaminated water is not of grave concern. That said, chlorinated water may taste and smell like bleach or chemical residue. The potency of these effects may vary depending on your home’s proximity to the water treatment center.
To lower chlorine in your drinking water, you’ll need to remove the chemical from your water supply. Water filters like Culligan’s Water Filtration Systems do the hard work for you while providing your whole home with total protection. With an all-in-one water filter, you can get cleaner, fresher, better-tasting water from every faucet in your home with ease.
