Chlorinated Water

Chlorinated Water is Great for Your Pool, But Not in Your Stomach!

And That’s WHY You Need to Consider NOT Drinking Chlorinated Water.

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.

The Harmful Effects of Chlorine

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.

Chlorine does not kill all the bacteria in the water supply pipelines as scale still builds up inside the pipes requiring Gold Coast Water and Logan Water to regularly clean them.

Far worse, chlorine is a chemical and a poison. Once ingested, it randomly targets what it kills off in your body. Simply put, chlorine kills all bacteria…good and bad. It can:

  • kill off the natural flora in your stomach
  • negatively affect your digestion
  • build up in fat deposits
  • settle in your arteries and lead to heart disease
  • what’s more, chlorine can cause bladder cancer.

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.

At Whywait, we install, maintain and repair all types and models of water filtration systems. Whole-house or single-source, you can trust Whywait to provide the right solution for you and your family.
