What Are Chloramines?
Chloramines are water disinfectants that are used by many water treatment facilities across the country. They’re made by adding ammonia to chlorine, and they are effective at killing bacteria and viruses and can stay active in the water supply for much longer than these waterborne diseases. Chloramines can be found in both municipal water supplies and private wells. Unfortunately, water treated with chloramines can have a strong smell and taste, so water softeners with chloramine filters are used to reduce or eliminate these unpleasant odors and tastes.
Why Should You Filter Chloramine From Your Water?
Chloramine can cause water to have a different taste or odor, and it can also lead to scale formation in water-using equipment such as water heaters and dishwashers. For households with excessive amounts of chloramines, they may lead to skin and eye irritation, which can be quite unpleasant. By filtering out chloramine with a water softener, you’ll be able to improve the aesthetic characteristics of your water while reducing the amount of scale build-up in your water-using equipment and reducing any potential for irritation caused by the water in your home.
How Does a Chloramine Filter Work?
A water softener with a chloramine filter works by reducing the number of chloramines in the water. The water is passed through the filter which contains an activated carbon media. As the water passes through, the chlorine and ammonia particles attach to the carbon media, thus removing them from the solution. This leaves behind water that is free of both chloramines and water-soluble metals like lead, copper, and nickel. With our water softeners with chloramine filters, you can enjoy water that is both softer and free of unpleasant tastes and odors.
Benefits of a Water Softener with Chloramine Filter
There are several benefits to choosing water softened with a chloramine filter. First, water that is free of chloramines will taste and smell better than water treated with chlorine alone. Second, water treated with a chloramine filter has fewer water-soluble metals, making it safer for drinking and cooking. Filters also help to reduce eye and skin irritation that can be caused by an excess amount of chloramines in water. Finally, water softeners with chloramine filters are easy to install and maintain, making them a great choice for busy households.
