Water is fundamental to our everyday living, especially considering our bodies are made up of 2/3 water and every part of our body depends on adequate water to be able to hydrate properly to stay healthy. The average human body uses up to 2.5 litres of water each day and must by its very nature be replaced. It’s accepted globally that most people don’t drink enough water, equally the quality of the water we drink is as important as the quantity: Water aids in digestion and absorption of food Water is the key to regulating body temperature Water is the primary carrier of nutrients and oxygen to our cells Water removes toxins and wastes from our bodies Water works to keep our muscles functioning and to keep our skin smooth and supple Water also helps to cushion and protect our joints from damage Water is also one of the keys to weight loss and physical fitness
When water leaves the water treatment plant it is of the highest quality, containing only elements necessary for your health: mainly salts and minerals. In order to maintain the quality of the water all the way to your tap and also eliminate any risk of accidental contamination, chlorine is added to the treated water. Chlorine is usually added in very small doses at the water treatment plant and then at various points in the distribution network. This is because chlorine content decreases during water distribution due to reactions with piping walls and other substances contained in the water, including undesirable microbes.
To preserve bacteriological safety of water, on average 0.1 to 0.2 milligrams of chlorine per litre of water is added at various points of the distribution network. This ensures that the water that reaches you is totally compliant with sanitary regulations. Chlorine content in water treated this way represents 1 drop of chlorine per 1,000 litres of water, which is roughly equal to 5 bathtubs.
Chlorine is added to water at various stages of the distribution process to kill harmful micro-organisms. While it is essential that chlorine is used during the supply process to eliminate potential contamination it can also provide some unwelcomed properties: It can attack organic material, such as sensitive skin and skin oils. As a by-product this can create a dry sensation for both skin and hair Chlorine vapour can be inhaled during a shower due to the steam created. While this impacts everyone it is particularly uncomfortable for those who suffer from respiratory related conditions The body naturally absorbs the chlorinated water through the skin which again can irritate sensitive skin.
