Are you happy with your water quality? Does it have a funny taste or smell? Did you know that chlorine is present in most municipal water at levels equal to what is used in a swimming pool? Swimming pools should have a chlorine content of 1-3 parts per million with an average of 2 parts per million. We tested our own unfiltered water from the tap in Durham, NC and we had a chlorine content of 2 parts per million!
Risks of Chlorine Consumption
Excessive chlorine consumption is not only dangerous to the health of you and your family, but it is also detrimental to your plumbing system. Chlorine breaks down many of the moving components in the plumbing system.
One solution is to install a whole house carbon filter. Carbon filters reduce and remove chlorine from city water. By installing a carbon filter you can reduce the amount of repairs and the frequency that repairs are needed. This system will also dramatically improve the quality of water that you drink, cook, and bathe with. Call JD Service Now to learn more about our water treatment options!
