Are Chloramines in City Water Making You Sick?

Are Chloramines in City Water Making You Sick?

What does your city use for a detergent in the public water? Most people will answer chlorine and many just may be right; however, cities are beginning to use a chemical compound called chloramines to treat the water. Chloramines are created by combining chlorine and ammonia and sticks around in the water longer than chlorinated water. Chloramines are also simple and inexpensive for the public utilities systems to use. What you may not know; however, is that chloramines are not a stable and safe chemical compound and they have not been fully tested for human exposure. Additionally, the public utilities are not required to let you know ahead of time if or when they make the change from chlorine to chloramines, it may simply not be stated or a small blurb someplace on the back of your bill.

A little information about chloramines will help you to understand just what the benefits and or dangers that lurk in your water and how you can protect your family from them. When chloramines combine with some organic material, the same organic materials often found in the public water systems, it can convert the compound into various carcinogens. Chloramines also have known and reported adverse effects including respiratory ailments. Skin rashes, blisters, welts and severe dry skin or eyes have also been reported from people that have been exposed to chloramines after their public water utilities switched from chlorine. While chlorine will dissipate from the water, often before reaching the customer, chloramines do not and must be removed with chloramine water filters.

Many people have installed under sink water filters to filter the water they drink and use for cooking. Even the best drinking water filters cannot protect you in the shower. To remove chloramines and other contaminates such as arsenic, lead and sediments in the shower and other places you use water other than for drinking you must use whole house water filtration systems.

Whole house water filters are hooked up to the incoming water from the utility company so that all the water you use is filtered and safe. To remove chloramines from all water coming into your home you are making your shower and bath safe as well as the water you use for washing dishes and washing your clothing. Additionally, specialized water filters can remove lead from water and remove arsenic from water; why risk absorbing these and other chemicals and contaminates through your skin?

Many people have reactions to chemicals from public water and do not even realize what is making them sick. Many symptoms of the flu or allergies could actually be adverse reactions to chloramines or contaminates in the water. The risk of cancer is another serious concern of improperly filtered water. Understanding the risk and knowing how to avoid these potentially dangerous illnesses is the first step. The next step is purchasing a whole house water filter and installing it on your water source from the public utilities system. There are a variety of styles and filters to choose from allowing you to customize your whole house filtration system. Is it important to you to allow fluoride in the public water to come through? Filters can be customized to allow the fluoride or to remove fluoride from water; whatever is important to you.

Make sure the water you drink, the water you brush your teeth with, the water you shower in, the water your children play in and the water you wash your dishes and clothing is safe and filtered.

Chloramines Used in City Water

Chloramines Used in City Water

Chloramines are chemical compounds used as a disinfectant in water and is becoming widely used instead of chlorination to treat public water systems. Chloramine is created by combining chlorine and ammonia. Although chloramines do not dissipate before reaching the customer the way that chlorine can, it often converts organic materials commonly found into carcinogenic compounds. Fortunately, chloramines can be removed from your showers and taps through the use of a quality filter.

Chloramines are used for public water systems, not because they are better than the formerly used chlorine, but because it is easy to make and less expensive. The EPA estimates that within the next few years 90% of public water utilities nation wide will use chloramines; despite the lack of studies for human effects. Besides the tendency to become carcinogenic and contributing to cancer with sustained exposure, there are a number of other adverse reactions to chloramines reported. Purchasing a filter that will protect your family from chloramines will be a necessity if the EPA is not stopped from going forward with this project.

House water filters will protect you and your family from the adverse reactions that can be caused from prolonged exposure to not only chloramines, but also arsenic, lead and fluoride. Protecting your family from reactions such as: rashes, severe dry skin, welts and blisters as well as respiratory problems and cancer can be as simple as installing house water filters.

Under the sink filters or whole house purification systems for the h2o you drink, are essential today to protect us from the contaminates that come out of your faucet or shower. And don’t feel that you are safer when you buy it from the store by the bottle. Even purchased bottled water has concerns with contamination and the impact of the abundance of discarded bottles on the environment.

Having a filtration system is important for your family’s health. A level of important protection is gained from these types of filters (such as under the sink or whole house systems) so that we do not ingest the harmful contaminates. Keep in mind that exposure to these contaminants can create just as severe problems as ingesting them.

Our skin absorbs everything in the air as well as everything that we come in contact with. People are now becoming aware of what they are exposed to and are choosing organic cotton clothing, all natural detergents for their clothes and all natural skin care products to avoid exposure to the massive number of contaminates, carcinogens and chemicals used today. Protecting yourself in this way is a wonderful way to keep a healthy body, but are we safe in our own shower? Chances are, unless you have a tested and pure well water system (rare today) or unless you have a whole house filtration system installed in your home you are not.

Whole house water filters can protect you from: chlorine, chloramines, lead, sediment, foul taste or odors, ammonia, hydrogen sulfite, as well as a host of other contaminates both chemical and organic. These filter systems are different from the under the sink filters that cannot protect you in the shower. The whole house filter system hooks up to the water inlet to your home so that everything you use from the public utilities company is filtered and you are protected.

The simple truth is, we cannot fully know what is in our public water and the public utilities do not have to disclose everything in a way that we are fully aware. Simply filtering your water can give you the security you desire when drinking, watching your children play in the tub or taking a shower yourself. So give yourself the protection you need by installing a whole house water filtration system.

I’m relieved to know I’m now protecting my family’s health because we use state-of-the-art water filtration by Selecto Inc., made right here in the USA.
