Chloramine is commonly and increasingly used as an alternative disinfectant in municipal water systems. High volume chlorinated water discharges are toxic to fish, amphibians, and water-based reptiles. Although the human health effects of chloramines have not been studied, some people have experienced negative symptoms such as burning skin, red rashes, itching, dry mouth and throat, digestive problems, wheezing, and severe asthma. In regards to the hydrogen sulfide, although water containing hydrogen sulfide does not pose a health risk, it gives water an unpleasant rotten egg smell and taste. The point-of-use FI-CHLORAMINE water filter utilizes advanced catalytic granular activated carbon which effectively removes chloramine and hydrogen sulfide from the water. Catalytic carbon retains all of the absorptive properties of activated carbon, but it also has the unique ability to promote or catalyze chemical reactions. First, it absorbs contaminants such as sulfides onto the surface of the carbon particles. Then, in the presence of dissolved oxygen, it oxidizes the sulfides and converts them to non-objectionable compounds. This conversion process makes catalytic activated carbon the most effective media available for the removal of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from water supplies. FI-CHLORAMINE can treat up to 1,500 gallons of water and is recommended to replace the 3rd stage of the reverse osmosis system.
