Whywait Plumbing Services recommends a whole of house water filter be installed in your home for removing chlorinated water before it enters your home.
There’s Chlorine in the Water Distribution Pipe Lines…Here’s Why.
Chlorine is a necessity in your swimming pool to eliminate bacteria and the potential for harmful side effects. You may not enjoy the odour or the stinging in your eyes, but you wouldn’t want to swim without it.
Drinking or ingesting chlorine is a whole different matter. But that’s exactly what you’re doing. That is because all potable drinking water distribution pipe line systems contain bacteria killing chlorine. The intent is simply to provide you with bacteria-free water. Unfortunately, they’re doing more than that.
Every time you consume tap water from the water distribution system you are ingesting a measure of chlorine.
Every time you shower or bathe in tap water you are ingesting the free chlorine gas in the water supply.
The tell-tale signs of unacceptably high levels of chlorine? Dry flaky skin, and the odour you often detect in your shower, bath, or drinking water.

Bottom line, the human body is not designed to filter out chlorine. And yet for the foreseeable future, it will remain in the potable water distribution pipe line systems.
