What is wrong with using chlorine bleach?
Chlorine bleach is damaging to you and your family’s health, and damaging to the environment. Bleach fumes when inhaled can cause respiratory problems and have been associated with causing asthma and other lung diseases. Chlorine bleach accumulates in the water system and can remain active for many years, to the detriment of aquatic life. Bleach can also react with other chemicals in the water to produce dioxins.
