Free chlorine is a stronger and faster-acting disinfectant. Customers may notice a slight difference in the taste and odor of their drinking water while chlorine is in use.
- Customers using tap water for at-home kidney dialysis should consult with their doctor to determine if any changes are necessary in their residual disinfectant neutralization procedures.
- Customers using the water for aquariums should monitor both free and combined chlorine residuals.
