Consider Using A Chlorine Test Kit In
|Why is chlorine in my water?
Many public water systems use chlorine as a disinfecting agent to kill pathogenic bacteria or other potentially harmful organisms. 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. If your water comes from a private well, then a chlorination system in the well may serve the same purpose. While chlorine is important in effectively treating water, by the time it reaches your home it may cause your water to take on a strong taste and odor. In either case, it is advisable to test your water.
