  • yeah, it kills it
  • Yes, very quickly, also fluorides and other added purifiers.
  • Boil water will remove chlorine but you must boil it for more than 5 minutes. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_ob=ArticleURL&_udi=B6V73-4FDJRSR-1&_user=10&_rdoc=1&_fmt=&_orig=search&_sort=d&view=c&_acct=C000050221&_version=1&_urlVersion=0&_userid=10&md5=ebfeac065b65f3d3bc6cbf199b0f5d7f
  • yes it does. I believe it also gets rid of the chloramine as well.
  • Ok, you are right, xprof. I was thinking of distillation. Boiling will eliminate chlorine, however. It will also simply evaporate. I keep a large tub of tapwater outside in summer to evaporate the chlorine before using it to water plants. We do not have fluoride in our local water.
  • Boiling will MOSTLY get rid of chlorine (it will boil out of the water into the air in your house!), but many water districts use chloramine instead, which boiling will not really get rid of. To get rid of chloramine you must add thiosulfite, available at a pet store that cells fish because the chloramine in drinking water kills fish. Ozonation, followed by boiling will get rid of chloramine also. I just use distilled water.
  • Chlorine and chloramine can be removed from your water by dissolving potassium metabisulfite into it. One campden tablet is enough to dechlorinate 20 gallons of tap water. Pros: Very fast - as soon as the K-meta is dissolved in the water and stirred, the water is dechlorinated.Nov 6, 2014 *Or buy bottled water from Costco. *Or have nottled water deliveted to your home. *Or buy a PUR water filter at your hardware store and attach it to your faucet and it will remove the chlorine. "The vast majority of filters used by consumers once water reaches our homes are made of activated carbon. ... As a result, a faucet-mounted filter from PUR will remove chlorine; pharmaceuticals and chemicals; heavy metals such as lead and mercury; and other organic compounds that can give water an unwelcome taste and odor."
