What is Chloramine?
Chloramine is a disinfectant used to kill bacteria and other harmful pathogens that may be in your water. This is an alternative method to using chlorine. This method is preferred over chlorine because it leaves less byproducts and remains in the water for a longer amount of time. This is a less effective method and has the potential to leave water with a bad taste or smell.
