When you turn on your tap, does your water smell and taste like chlorine? If your water comes from a municipal water source, then it most likely does. Municipalities use chlorine and chloramines as a disinfectant to keep water safe from bacteria as it travels through pipes to your home. Both chemicals play an important role in protecting your water from contamination, but once chlorinated water arrives at your home it can cause some problems.
In addition to the unpleasant taste and odour chlorine leaves on your water, it can also strip your body of natural oils, which dries out your skin and hair. The introduction of chlorine and chloramine can create by-products such as THMs and chloroform. Trihalomethanes (THMs) are the result of a reaction between the chlorine and naturally occurring organic matter in the water. Exposure to THMs has been linked to health risks which may increase during showering or bathing when warmer water is used.
