Ever notice that strong smell coming from a swimming pool? Thatâ€™s chlorine. Chlorine is a natural element; itâ€™s number 17 on the Periodic Table. Itâ€™s very common and is a necessary part of life on Earth. Chlorine is also a powerful disinfectant used by water treatment plants to sanitize our water supply.
The good news is that unlike many other chemicals that can be found in our drinking water, chlorine actually helps keep it safe to drink. The bad news is that it makes our water smell and taste awful. By using a water filter with your refrigeratorâ€™s water and ice dispenser, you can remove that taste and smell while protecting your water from contaminants!
How much chlorine is in your water? You can find out with one of our handy WaterSafe All-In-One Home Drinking Water Test Kits.
