Anyone concerned about Chloramines
Just received an email from air water and ice, the rodi manufacturer that I use, asking if I am filtering for Chloramines. I checked my water district 2015 report and it states there are 2.03(average) mg/ml in my water. It is reported as disinfectant residuals (chloramines). I do not know if that amount is significant, or detrimental, and whether I should be ordering a catalytic carbon upgrade filter for my system as they suggest. Opinions?
Or you could just dose your water with Seachem Prime and save a lot of money. Prime is cheap and very concentrated. Then you know with 100% certainty that chloramines are neutralized. With that $15 cartridge, needs to be replaced often, and how will know when it's no longer effective?

I run two Cloramine blocks during the summer when the city dumps the chloromine in the water. Yes its bad, it introduces ammonia into the tank.

Seachem Prime has always worked for me
