Why are chloramines used to treat drinking water? What concerns exist about using them?

Inorganic chloramines are increasingly chosen as secondary disinfectant treatments for drinking water in municipal water systems.
...chloramine may have other benefits compared to more potent and chemically active disinfectants by suppressing growth of biofilms that are a likely environment for colonization by pathogens such as Legionellabacteria....

Concerns

Chloramines, like other usually innocuous drinking water components such as nitrate, are harmful to kidney dialysis patients if the water is not properly pretreated. During dialysis, direct transport from water to blood occurs, which is a very different exposure condition than ingestion. Cases of hemolytic anemias and increased methemoglobin have occurred when chloramine was not sufficiently removed from the dialysis water. Medical instrumentation standards exist, and dialysis systems designed with water treatment make the water acceptable usually with reverse osmosis in the treatment train.

Multipure Commentary:
Multipure Drinking Water Systems have been certified by NSF International to reduce the widest range of contaminants of health including chloramines.

Lead taints drinking water in hundreds of schools, day cares across USA


More than 350 water systems that failed lead tests from 2012 to 2015 were schools and child-care centers, according to EPA data uncovered as part of a USA TODAY…

• Lead-tainted water isn't used just for drinking and washing. It's often used for cooking school lunches — where it can wind up in foods like pasta — or making infant formula, posing a particular risk to babies because they consume so much water compared to their size.
Among schools and day cares required to test, the USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found problematic lead levels in 42 states.

It is important that you always use a genuine Multipure replacement filter. Knock-off filters that you might find on the internet have no verification for the quality of their performance. Multipure's filters have been NSF certified to reduce the widest range of contaminants. 

Multipure uses the highest grade carbon in accordance with NSF standards.

Multipure's filters, housings and components are designed to work together. Once you start changing out components (ie. another housing, another cartridge) you start changing the performance characteristics of the system. There are carbon filters for sale that might leach toxic substances including Arsenic and Aluminum. With no regulation or certification of their safety they may cut corners and use inferior materials.

If you use anything other that a Multipure filter your warranty is no longer in effect as filters using questionable materials may damage your Multipure drinking water system.
Be sure to ensure the performance and warranty of your Multipure Drinking Water System by using or genuine Multipure replacement filters.
It is not worth the risk to your health to save a few dollars on knock-off filters.

Our filters are NSF-certified to reduce the widest array of contaminants under NSF/ANSI standard 42
(Aesthetic Effects) Standard 53 (Health Effects) and Standard 401 (Emerging Compounds).
Multilpure's CB6 is compatible with:
Aquaversa (MP750SB, MP750SI, MP750SC, MP1200EL, MPCT, MPSSCT, MP500 series).

Dr Reynolds discussed  Water Born Pathogens
                        

Including Lead and Arsenic V.

Microbiological contaminants causing microbes in water are unhealthy and even life threatening. For example, bacteria that live in the intestinal tracts of humans and other warm blooded animals, such as Escherichia coli, SalmonellaShigella, andVibrio, can contaminate water if feces enters the water.

Water Born VirusBacteria, and Parasites such as Cryptosporidium  
and Giardia‎:

These Microrganisims cause cysts which attach to your gut preventing you from absorbing nutrients.

Once in your gut cryptosporidiosis will result.

What are the symptoms of cryptosporidiosis?

The most common symptom of cryptosporidiosis is watery diarrhea. There may also be abdominal cramps, nausea, low-grade fever, dehydration, and weight loss. Symptoms usually develop 4 to 6 days after infection but may appear anytime from 2 to 10 days after infection.

Parasites are Chlorine resistant

Chlorine is the # 1 method used in municipalities for water disinfection.
  • Cryptosporidium and Giardia are the most common protozoa of concern in U.S. drinking water.
  • They are fecal, oral intestinal parasites of many warm-blooded animals.
  • There are several species of each, and some can infect humans.
  • Cryptosporidium has a more complex reproductive cycle, although both can survive in water or food environments, and they reproduce and become infectious in the host’s intestines…
  • Water filration is used to get rid of parasites
Multipure Commentary:
Multipure Drinking Water Systems have been certified by NSF International to reduce the widest range of contaminants of health concern including Cryptosporidium reduction under Standard 53.

Water-based infection are Difficult to Control. 
Post treatment in municipalities as water sits in storage tanks in distribution pipes and plumbing in your home.
Your water is not sterile when it reaches your home.

Water Safety

We have the safest drinking water in the world—except for the pesticides that sometimes sneak in. And the rocket fuel. And the antibiotics …
“A lot of the infrastructure for drinking water is very old. In the District of Columbia, some of it predates the Civil War. Lead pipes used to be standard back then! Read More:

Poisoning conjures up images of evil men sneaking away as unsuspecting victims clutch their throats and fall over dead at the dinner table. The reality of poisoning is much more sinister, and its potential sits on a larger scale than most municipalities and states are willing to acknowledge.
