Trihalomethanes (THMs) are created from a chemical reaction between water and the chlorine used to disinfect it. You should not drink water with a high level of THMs. This article explains some of the health risks of trihalomethanes, including reproductive problems and cancer.
Drinking water in many communities in the area is treated with chlorine or chloramines, which could lead to the production of trihalomethane (THMs) as well as a bad taste and odor.
The bad news is that you definitely do not want to be drinking THMs.
The good news is that Culligan of Houston can remove those harmful THMs and VOCs from your water supply.
