1. Water battles fatigue and keeps your energy levels high.
2. Water helps fight the urge to binge on empty calories.
3. Water hydrates your skin, keeping it from drying out and becoming tight and flaky.

Information On Chlorine & Chloramine
All municipalities are required to make sure their water is treated for bacteria and safe for human consumption. Historically, chlorine has been the chemical used for this purpose, but in recent years, many municipalities have moved to chloramine for anti-bacterial protection. Chloramine is a combination of chlorine and ammonia. Both chlorine and chloramine add a noticeable, distinct taste and odor that many people find distasteful.
How Do You Treat Chlorine & Chloramine?
Typically, carbon-based filters can be used to remove both chlorine and chloramine in the home before the water is used for drinking or cooking. This removes the taste of the chlorine and chloramine, while still allowing them to act as antibacterial agents in your water. However, home owners must be careful to choose the correct type of carbon filter. While standard carbon filters will treat chlorine, these standard carbon filters will not remove chloramine. A special type of carbon is required to treat chloramine, and most local big-box and hardware stores do not carry these types of carbon filters.
Culligan Treats Chlorine & Chloramine
Culligan knows how to treat both chlorine and chloramine, and it also knows what treatment solutions to use in your area. The removal of chlorine and chloramine can be accomplished with either a Culligan “point-of-use” (POU) filter – typically under sink – or a Point of Entry Whole House Filter – attached to your home’s main water supply. Let Culligan make a recommendation as to which is best for your situation, and trust Culligan’s expertise to know how to treat your local water.
