Water conditioning units are specialized units designed for specific contaminant removal. One of the most commonly used is a dechlorinator unit. Chlorine can cause issues such as dry skin, brittle hair, fade colors on clothes, also chlorinating the water supply has a side effect that causes an increase in trihalomethane levels. Trihalomethanes are a combination of gases that are by-products of organic matter reacting with the chlorine and are known carcinogens over certain levels. One overlooked aspect of trihalomethane gasses is that they vaporize in the air which makes them easy to inhale when showering. Water conditioners are great for targeting specific water issues.
