Chlorine Taste and Smell Problems

Chlorine in water is essential at the treatment plant and in the distribution system, but not in your home. The benefits of chlorine come at a high cost. In addition to tasting and smelling poorly, chlorine dries skin and hair, fades clothes and can dry out rubber seals in appliances, shortening their lives.

Health Risks to Infants

Drinking chlorinated water can potentially increase risk of asthmatic attacks, particularly in younger children and infants. If exposed to skin, chlorinated water can also cause irritation.

Dry Skin or Hair

Exposure to chlorinated water can lead to irritation on the skin and scalp, resulting in dry and itchy skin.
