Chlorine and Tap Water

Why is chlorine added to tap water?

Chlorine is a highly efficient disinfectant, and it is added to public water supplies to kill disease-causing bacteria that the water or its transport pipes might contain.

This is a good thing, however there are a number of unwanted side effects of the chlorination process on our drinking water.

For a start, it effects the taste and odour of the water.

In addition, worldwide research has also shown that when chlorine is introduced into the water supply, it reacts with other naturally-occurring elements to form toxins called trihalomethanes (THMs), which eventually make their way into our bodies. THMs have been linked to a wide range of human health maladies ranging from asthma and eczema to bladder cancer and heart disease.

Thus, it is beneficial for long term health and wellness to remove chlorine from your drinking water. All Cleansui products remove free residual chlorine in their filtration process.
