What is chlorine, taste and odour?

Refers to the distinctive flavour and smell associated with chlorine in water. Chlorine is commonly used as a disinfectant in water treatment processes to kill bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms. While chlorine is effective in reducing waterborne pathogens it can leave a residual taste (often described as a bleach-like or chemical flavour) and odour in the treated water.

Why do I need to remove chlorine?

Removing chlorine from water is often desired for several reasons:


  • Taste and Odour: chlorine causes an unpleasant taste and odour in water.
  • Beverage and Food Quality: natural flavours and characteristics are compromised by the presence of chlorine, specifically yeast.
  • Cosmetic and Aesthetics: Chlorine can strip the natural oils from the skin and hair, leading to dryness and potential damage.
  • Disinfection Byproducts: Chlorine can react with naturally occurring organic matter in water, forming disinfection byproducts such as trihalomethane and halo-acetic acids. Long-term exposure has been associated with potential health risks, such as cancer.
