Chlorine is a poison that is very effective in
killing bacteria, and from that standpoint, it helps
provide millions of Americans with bacteriologically
safe water. However, chlorine will not kill
cyptosporidium cysts, and therefore does not guarantee
micobiologically safe water.
In addition, chlorination by-products,
trihalomethanes, have been linked to cancer, and
therefore consuming chlorinated water may create
long-term health risks. Chlorine also produces an
objectionable taste and odor which discourages many
people from drinking the recommended daily amount of
Dechlorination via activated carbon will remove
trihalomethanes and eliminate normal taste and odor
problems associated with chlorinated water. Follow
directions on package for testing.
