Since the 1850's, chlorine has been used as a disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria in water itself or the pipes that transport it. It has helped end a number of major threats to public health. While chlorine is vital for stopping the spread of disease, its benefits come at a price. Chlorine tastes and smells bad. It dries skin and hair, fades clothes (bleach is made of chlorine) and can dry out the rubber seals in appliances, shortening their lives.
Get whole house dechlorination in a convenient package that can upgrade virtually any water softener. The activated carbon adsorbs objectionable tastes and odors from chlorinated water. Dechlorination reduces deterioration of rubber seals in fixtures and appliances and eliminates drying of hair and skin due to chlorine.
