Chlorine in Water in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area

We hear from a lot of concerned DFW residents who are worried about chlorine in their drinking water.

So we put together this page to give a little information on what chlorine is, what its effects are, and what you can do to remove it and get better drinking water.

What Are the Effects of Chlorine?

Long-term use of chlorinated water can have some negative consequences. For one thing, it has a drying effect on skin & hair that can increase dandruff, exacerbate hair loss, cause hair dye to fade, and lead to dry and brittle hair.

It has the same drying effect on your clothing, too. Washing with chlorinated water will make your clothes fade faster.

Because chlorine is a strong oxidant, it can also cause problems with certain water-using appliances that can ultimately lead to leaks or even expensive repairs.

And while the health effects of chlorinated water are still not fully understood, some doctors believe it can significantly increase your risk for serious conditions like cancer.

How Can You Remove the Chlorine From Your Water?

Fortunately, chlorine can be removed from your water with the right filtration system.

And unlike simple “pitcher filters,” a good filtration system can remove the chlorine from your entire house–so you won’t be showering in it or washing your clothes in it.

If you’re curious about improving your home’s water by filtering out the chlorine, we’d be happy to come do a quick water test in your home. This way you can actually find out, for sure, if your chlorine levels are a problem.

The water test is free and carries no obligation. Just fill out a form or give us a call to schedule it.

Culligan of Dallas has more than 1,500+ 4.7 Stars Google Reviews!

We needed a new reverse osmosis system in our kitchen. Dakota explained all of the features, pricing, and gave us all the information we needed for the system. He did a great job, and I would recommend Culligan and Dakota to anyone!

So far we love our Culligan system, especially the under sink filtration system. It’s so convenient to have better than bottled-water quality water coming from the tap. The Culligan company has also been good in that when the Culligan water softener was installed in March, and two bushes died after they had to move them during installation, they paid for the replacement of those bushes.

This system is as advertised. We are happy that what has been promised has been delivered. Our clothes have remained more colorful, there hasn’t been any build up of calcium or water spots, and the taste of our water is much improved. I am additionally impressed that Culligan sent a follow up rep, Thomas Kulpa, to make sure we were satisfied and that the system is working properly. The patience and knowledge he displayed was very helpful.
