Chlorine Exposure Assessmentwhole home water filter

As you can see, the rates of skin absorption are tremendous.

At One Water we believe one should have a whole house filtration system installed to prevent chlorine absorption from bathing water.

Yet, one of the problems is to properly evaluate the effectiveness of these units.

In the past, different types of whole house filtration systems have been successfully used to remove a variety of minerals from the water such as iron, etc. However, our recommendation for installing a system is for chlorine removal, not mineral removal.
