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.
