Chlorine has been used around the world for hundreds of years as an inexpensive and effective disinfectant.
Safe drinking water supplies are integral to our survival, our health and general wellbeing. Australian drinking water is, quite-rightly, chlorinated.
Why? Because water that comes from untreated sources such as streams, lakes, dams and reservoirs can contain potentially very harmful micro-organisms.
Untreated water can cause a whole host of serious health conditions and diseases that, in some cases, can even lead to death!
The problem is, some people can react quite badly to the chlorine itself 🤢
Chlorine reactions could include:
– Stomachaches, vomiting & diarrhea
– Dry, itchy skin
– Unpleasant taste and odour
Why is chlorine used in drinking water?
Simple to use and inexpensive, chlorine has been a feature of Australian public health for years. Chlorine is added to raw water to eliminate algae and other forms of aquatic life from the water so they won’t cause problems in the later stages of water treatment.
How much chlorine is in our drinking water?
For drinking water supplies in Western Australia, normal chlorine concentration levels range from 0.5 to 1.5 milligrams per litre however, these levels may vary due to a number of different reasons including your proximity to the water treatment plant, maintenance periods and the flow of water into the system.
The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines clearly states that the level of chlorine in drinking water should not exceed 5 milligrams per litre.
