What is Chloramine?
Chloramines are introduced into the water supply by water treatment companies because they last longer than free chlorine and serve as antibacterial agents to help purify water. Chloramines untreated can pose some risks to people using that water in their homes, including chlorine taste and smell, dry and irritated skin, and are also labeled as a respiratory irritant. The chemical can be breathed in or absorbed when it's vaporized, in a hot shower for example, which can compromise those with already weak immune systems. In addition to those conditions they are harmful to fish and other aquatic animals. Removing chloramines from your water is bit more difficult than removing chlorine, and requires specialized systems like this one to properly reduce the chemical.

It rarely ever is the case that only monochloramine is present in your water and therefore it is important to treat for chloramines.
Does this system have a regeneration cycle? Yes, there is a backwash and regeneration cycle that should be lead into a drain line for waste water. This system provides an average of 5-7 years of service for a family of 1-4 people.
Are chloramines just as effective as chlorine at killing bacteria? No, chloramines are a little less effective than free chlorine as a primary disinfectant, however they stay present in the water longer and thus offer the benefit of treating the water for longer during its journey to your home. Chloramine treatment is an especially effective secondary disinfectant treatment option. EPA Clarification
