Are there any precautions for using chloraminated water?
Chloraminated water is safe for everyone to use for drinking, bathing, cooking and all regular uses we have for water. However, chloramines, just like chlorine, must be removed from the water prior to dialysis treatment. If you have a home dialysis machine, consult with your health care provider to ensure your unit is capable of removing chloramines from the water prior to use. Contact your physician if you have any health related questions.

Chloramines, just like chlorine, are harmful to all fish, amphibians and reptiles and must be removed from the water prior to use in aquariums and ponds. Most pet stores sell products that can be easily added to the water to remove chloramines. For more information contact your aquarium supply or pet supply store.
