Frequently asked questions
For the most part, it is safe to drink water that has been treated with chlorine. However, issues can arise when too much of this chemical is ingested. Some people have adverse skin and eye reactions to high chlorine levels.
Other health problems that can arise from the prolonged presence of chlorine include respiratory distress, chest tightness, and a sore throat. The CDC states that water with 4 or fewer parts per million of chlorine is safe to drink and is unlikely to cause adverse health effects.
Chlorine can corrode metals or oxidize any rubber parts in your equipment. This can drastically reduce the lifespan of your appliances or lead to costly repairs for machines like your dishwasher, water heater, washing machine, or water softener.
Setting up a proper filtration system can completely remove chlorine from your water supply, preventing these problems from ever occurring in the first place and saving you significant amounts of money.
Your water may smell and taste differently if it has excess chlorine in it. Some people describe the taste of chlorinated drinking water as similar to pool water. It could even smell like bleach. These are definitely not the flavors or aromas you hope to find in your drinking water. Nevertheless, relying on your senses isn’t enough for you to know for sure if too much chlorine is present.
