Arizona has extremely hot weather, as we all know, and as a result, our water supply is perfect for breeding waterborne bacteria and pathogens that can cause typhoid fever, dysentery and a whole lot more.

That’s why cities, counties and water districts treat water with chlorine to kill bacteria and viruses.

The federal Environmental Protection Agency actually decides what the minimum contaminant levels can be. Through this process, waterborne diseases in the United States have been nearly eliminated.

But once that chlorine does its job on the bacteria, it’s no longer needed in the water — but it is still there. It can leave an after taste or have a distinctive odor.

Many homeowners object to having that taste of chlorine in drinking water. Some people contend chlorine can be tough on plastics and rubber in a home’s appliances and can possibly have negative effects on your body as well.

There are two major ways to remove chlorine from Arizona drinking water.

One of the most common is point-of-use technology, which involves installing a reverse osmosis drinking water system to provide high quality drinking water. These units, equipped with special filters, often fit under your kitchen sink and will supply water to a small holding tank. In some cases, the units connect to your refrigerator.

You can even have a point-of-entry system connected to the main water supply as it comes into your house. These systems not only improve the taste of water, they can also remove additional contaminants, including lead, arsenic, aluminum and more.

You can call All About Water (480-892-7556) for an assessment today of your home’s water system and whether you can benefit from chlorine removal, a job that the company has specialized in for more than 40 years.
