2/1/18H2O Care published in Water Quality Products Magazine with Article titled, “Chloramine Control” in public water supplies – positives and negatives consumers should be aware of.

Public utilities have used chloramines to disinfect water supplies since the 1930s and an estimated one in five people in the U.S. uses water treated with chloramines. Since the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 and its amendments, utilities around the country have made changes to their disinfection strategies to meet more stringent regulations for either microbial contaminants or disinfection byproducts (DBPs). Both chlorine (also used for disinfection by many utilities) and chloramine react with other compounds in the water to form DBPs. The article explores how switching to chloramines from chlorine has resolved some health concerns but may have created new ones.

The merger of the two companies led to 15 years of consistent growth thanks to a dedicated staff that was focused on providing exceptional customer service.
