Many filters on the market can breed bacteria and need cleaned or replaced all together periodically, which may require a professional.
The best solutions hook into lines that can filter all the water entering your home or business supplying showers, washers, sinks, water heater, and even spickets outside.
Professional installation is required in most cases.
"Some infants, young children, and fetuses of pregnant women who drink water containing chlorine dioxide in excess of the maximum residual disinfectant level could experience nervous system effects."
"Some people who use water containing chloramine in excess of the maximum residual disinfectant level could experience irritating effects to their eyes and nose, stomach discomfort or anemia."
"...certain microbial pathogens, such as Cryptosporidium, are highly resistant to traditional disinfection practices. Also, disinfectants themselves can react with naturally-occurring materials in the water to form byproducts, such as trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids, which may pose health risks."
"An increased risk of bladder cancer appeared to be associated with the consumption of chlorinated tapwater in a population-based, case control study of adults consuming chlorinated or non-chlorinated water for half of their lifetimes."
"It has been reported that asthma can be triggered by exposure to chlorinated water. Episodes of dermatitis have also been associated with exposure to chlorine and hypochlorite."
"The link between chlorine and bladder and rectal cancers has long been known, but only recently have researchers found a link between common chlorine disinfectant and breast cancer..."
"But don't think that buying bottled water is any solution. Much of the bottled water for sale in the U.S. comes from public municipal water sources that are often treated with, you guessed it, chlorine."
"It is certainly no coincidence that chlorine gas was used with deadly effectiveness as a weapon in the First World War."
"Dr. John Andelman, Ph.D., says the dangers of exposure to chlorine during showers via absorption through the skin as well as inhalation cannot be overstated. Andelman is especially concerned with the high concentrations of chlorine and synthetic chemicals that can enter the body this way."
"The most current findings from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicate that virtually every home in America has a detectable level in the air of chloroform gas - a derivative of chlorine and a known carcinogen - due to chlorine and showering."
"The inhalation of chlorine is a suspected cause of asthma and bronchitis, especially in children, which has increased 300% in the last two decades. 'Showering is suspected as the primary cause of elevated levels of chloroform in nearly every home because of chlorine in the water.' Dr Lance Wallace, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency."
1. Our skin absorbs many toxins, including chlorine.
2. When we shower, our body absorbs more chlorine through the skin than it does when ingesting it.
3. Chlorine kills beneficial bacteria in your gut.
4. When we shower in chlorinated water, we are killing off the beneficial bacteria in our gut!"
"Chlorine has the potential to damage your skin and cause it to age more rapidly. As you shower or bathe, heat opens your pores, and some chlorine is absorbed. The combination of chlorine and hot water removes some of your skin's natural oils. This can lead to dryness and cracking, which can lead to wrinkles. Chlorine also destroys vitamin E, which functions as an antioxidant."
"Dr. W.C. Douglass, author of 'Don't Drink the Water,' cites Belgian research linking malignant melanoma to consumption of chlorinated water."
