Feel Like You Are Bathing in A Swimming Pool?

We’re sure many of you have experienced swimming in those overly popular water parks and pools where the chlorine concentration is too high, and you can smell it on your skin even after you’ve showered. And we’re sure you’ve all seen the effects it has on swimwear over time. Chlorine is a harsh chemical that will gradually break down swimwear that is exposed to it, by corrosively eating into the fibers and causing the fabric to degrade. There’s no doubt that chlorine is a toxic chemical, so you certainly don’t want your tap water smelling like chlorine.

Chlorine is the most common type of drinking water disinfection because it kills bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that can cause disease, and so there is a fine balance between the amount of chlorine added to water to make it safe, and the amount of chlorine that is safe for us to bathe in or consume.

If you notice that your tap water smells like bleach, then the first step is to determine why, and then see what can be done to improve it. Here at Aqua Clear Water Systems, we offer free water tests by our experienced technicians to determine the quality of your water and the best solution for you, your family, and your home.

Problems Associated with Too Much Chlorine

Even if the chlorine levels in your tap water are safe, the chlorine can still impart a bad taste or smell, making you and your family less enthusiastic about drinking it. Water is vital to our health, but if your tap water smells like bleach, you may choose to drink less healthy beverages instead, like sodas, which carry their own risks to our health and are a major contributor to the obesity epidemic around the world today.

If chlorine levels are too high, this can cause short-term and long-term health problems when ingested, like respiratory issues, digestive issues, and a possible link to certain types of cancers. Aside from the problems caused by drinking it, bathing in tap water that smells of chlorine can potentially cause symptoms like dry or reddened skin, irritated nose and eyes, and chest tightness. You may also notice your laundry is affected, making clothes look faded, dull, and worn out.

Excess chlorine is also a problem for your home, shortening the life span of appliances like water heaters, washing machines, taps, and faucets. This is because chlorine causes iron to rust, which can build up in your water system and other water-using appliances.
