Water bottles can help reduce the risk of drinking water contamination from the beach, according to a new study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Water bottles that are placed in an aquarium or a water cooler can help remove the chlorine from the water, according the study.
The researchers found that the rate of exposure to chlorine decreases after the water bottle is replaced.
The study will be published in the journal Aquatic Toxicology and Chemistry.
The study was led by Dr. William P. Zielinski, professor of environmental health and bioengineering at UW-Madison, and included researchers from the School of Life Sciences, the UW-Milwaukee College of Natural Sciences, and the University’s College of Aquatic Sciences.
“In the future, the potential for water bottle reuse will be enhanced,” Zielinsky said.
“With water bottles, we can provide our customers with clean water with minimal cost, and we can help them conserve water by removing chlorine from their water bottles.”
Water bottles can reduce the amount of chlorine in your water source.
One study published in 2015 estimated that water bottles could reduce the use of chlorine by up to 80 percent.
In the new study, the researchers found the rate at which the water bottles remove chlorine from water can decrease when the water is reused.
They also found that water bottle-removal rates were similar for chlorine and other common contaminants in the water.
The water bottles also have a higher capacity than other disposable water bottles to remove chlorine, and these are typically placed in a container in a cooler.
“These data indicate that we can improve water bottle water consumption and reuse rates with water bottles,” Ziolinski said.
