Can I eliminate the chlorine odor?

Chlorine odors may be more noticeable in the summer. Chlorine kills organisms that can cause disease and thereby is used to disinfect the water. You may remove the chlorine in one of the following ways but please refrigerate the water to limit bacterial re-growth:

  • Fill a container and let it sit in the sunlight for 30 minutes.
  • Fill a pitcher and refrigerate it overnight. (This is the best way.)
  • Heat the water to about 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Pour water between containers about 10 times.
