Why do we have chlorine in our town water?


Category: Water quality

Chlorine is added to town water supplies to control microorganisms which can result in waterborne diseases.Chlorine is the same active chemical as you will find in household bleach making it one of the most desirable chemicals to filter due to its strong odour and taste.

Chlorine is toxic to fish and other household pets.  Our pets absorb water directly into the blood stream unlike us. So best ensure that you prevent your pet drinking your pool water and definitely filter your water for your pets sake.
