Can I remove chlorine from my water?

If you find the taste of chlorine unacceptable, a good solution is to fill a jug of tap water and keep it in the fridge. Not only will the chilled water taste better, it will lose that chlorine smell. You can also remove chlorine from the water by using an activated carbon filter. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding replacement of the filter as they can become sources of bacterial contamination if left in place too long.
