It’s no secret that chlorine is used for sanitizing the water in your swimming pool and keeping it crystal clear. But did you know that this chemical is also found in the water you drink? It is not uncommon for chlorine to be added to municipal water systems in order to limit the growth of microbes, which can make you sick when you drink or bathe in the water. However, high amounts of chlorine can also make you sick. That’s why Anderson Water Systems, a water purification company based in Rochester, NY, offers free water testing to residential and commercial customers.
Chlorine is not harmful in small doses. However, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), high doses of chlorine will not only dry out your hair and skin, but it may also lead to an increased risk of some cancers. Suffice it to say, it’s important to have your water tested to find out just how much chlorine is in it. Anderson Water Systems can test your water for free. Should the test find that there is an unhealthy amount of chlorine in your drinking water, the company offers water purification solutions, such as water filters and other filtration systems, which can be installed to help keep your water safe.
Anderson Water Systems serves customers in Rochester, Syracuse, Buffalo, and the surrounding region. To schedule a free water test and to learn more about water purification and filtration systems for your home or business, contact Anderson Water Systems at (800) 836-2509.
