Do you know what’s in your drinking water?
If not, you should. Too often people are served tap water that has been treated with chlorine and other chemicals to make it safe for human consumption. These treatments can also react with organic compounds in the water to produce potentially harmful byproducts, which may be more carcinogenic than the treatment itself!
Read this blog post to learn about how tepid water treatment works and why it is better than traditional methods of treating drinking water. The tepid water treatment works in a similar way to the chlorination of drinking water.
The difference is that instead of adding chlorine, hydrogen peroxide gas reacts with organic compounds to produce oxidants like oxygen and ozone which kill bacteria without creating potentially harmful byproducts. This process also does not react as readily with other elements such as iron or manganese because it requires more time for this reaction to occur!
