Why Use a Chlorine Water Filter? Chlorine Is Supposed To Make Us Safe!

by Guest on Aug 3, 2010

Many people still don't seem to realize the benefits that a chlorine water filter would give them and their families. Chlorine in your drinking and shower water poses a grave danger to your health, but it seems that it's a necessary evil in our lives. Chlorine really does help to keep us safe from the majority of the dangerous bacteria that haunts our waterways.

Chlorine was originally introduced into our public water system in 1908, in order to slow down the death rate from waterborne diseases. While it made a good disinfectant agent, even then people knew that it could eventually cause some very serious health problems.

They knew this because concentrated chlorine was used in the First World War as a chemical weapon called mustard gas (a bronchial irritant that can cause death at high doses). Even though the chlorine we are normally exposed to is at much lower levels, we still need a chlorine water filter to keep us safe.

If I told you that the allowable level of chlorine in our drinking water is higher than what is legally allowed in a swimming pool, would you believe me?

Sadly enough, that statistic is true. We are regularly allowed to consume levels of chlorine that would cause a swimming pool to be judged unsafe. If that isn't enough reason for you to purchase a chlorine water filter, then I don't know what is.

Chlorine also poses a threat to your health in other ways. There is a reason that I mentioned your shower water earlier, because it's in the shower that chlorine poses the greatest threat in your home.

It is the vapor formed by the steam in your shower that actually gives you the most exposure to chlorine. This vapor is both inhaled into your lungs, and it is absorbed through the pores of your skin while you're bathing. You are exposed to literally thousands of times more of the chemical in the shower than you could get by just drinking the chlorine-treated water.

That is why, in addition to the chlorine water filter for your tap, you may want to consider the purchase and installation of showerhead filters. You have to remember that chlorine exposure over a long period of time has been linked to the development of cancer in humans, so it's hard to be too careful with it.

Prolonged or excessive exposure to most any chemical will have bad results, and there are many more chemicals in our water supply than just chlorine. You'll want to make sure that the filters that you finally buy are of excellent quality so that you will never have to worry about any of those other contaminants either.

You can never be too safe when it comes to either your own health, or to the health of your family members. Chlorine in the water supply can cause you many problems - unpleasant taste and others far worse.

So don't waste any more time, go ahead and purchase that chlorine water filter as soon as you can.
