What is Chloramine?

Last Updated: Sep 20, 2011 05:32PM CDT
Chloramine is a disinfectant used as an alternative to chlorine treatment in some water systems. Chloramine is used to kill bacteria and other carcinogens in water treatment and is not considered to be harmful to humans, but it does have an unpleasant taste and smell. Chloramine hasn't been used as long as Chlorine so  many water filters are not tested for chloramine reduction.

Chloramines are removed by carbon based filters.
