Exclamation [Urgent] Chlorine Flush in my area.

Hello where I live they will be flushing our lines with chlorine instead of chloramine. This is very worrying to me because they are saying its a stronger disinfection process. I use Prime to treat my water will this still work or should i use bottled spring water for the time being. Any help is appreciated!

Most municipalities already use chloramine and chlorine. Both are harmful to caudates, the only difference I can think of between them is that chloramine doesn't evaporate from water. If you mean there is going to be a higher does of chlorine, just use more water conditioner that works for both chlorine and chloramine. Prime should do the job. If you do decide to go the spring water route, just make sure the water hasn't been treated with chlorine or anyth ing
