Public water supplies throughout the United States disinfect drinking water, significantly reducing water borne illnesses such as typhoid fever, dysentery and cholera. Many water treatment facilities are using chloramine to disinfect water supplies. Chloramine is formed by combining chlorine with ammonia under controlled conditions.

Chloramine vs. Chlorine

  1. Chloramines last longer than chlorine, offering consistent bacterial control
  2. Chloramines may improve the efficacy of chlorine, resulting in reduced chlorine use
  3. Chloramines do not form THM’s (trihalomethanes), known carcinogens regulated by the EPA
  4. Chloramines improve the taste and odor of drinking water
