Problem: Recent Chlorine Smell in Water Due to Changes to Water Treatment Process
Solution: Water Treatment Equipment
If you haven’t seen or read the recent news from Pennsylvania American Water, be aware that temporarily – from April 12th thru June 21st – they are “temporarily” changing their water treatment process (as a part of their normal distribution system maintenance) by switching treatment to a stronger disinfectant form of CHLORINE known as “free chlorine” which does not contain ammonia. Free chlorine is used in conjunction with flushing water mains and fire hydrants.
What does this mean for YOU?
- You (and your pets) may experience a more noticeable chlorine taste and/or odor from:
- tap water: drinking, cooking
- cleaning: washing machine, clothes, dishwasher
- If you have a health care need (see examples below) that requires “purified or filtered water” they recommend reaching out to your healthcare provider with questions. ADDITIONALLY, contact us for water treatment recommendations that can act as a barrier between the outside pipes and your home’s water faucets.
COMMON HEALTH CARE CONCERNS:
- If you are taking prescription medications
- Skin care concerns
- Contact lens users
PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO REASON FOR CONCERN!
