so it sounded your water company added chloramine to your water... Did you add enough prime?

I believe even though you added prime you would still register ammonia from a test. And it takes a week or 2 for chloramine to break down without prime.

Man, I'm glad I don't have chloramine. Sounds like a headache. I hear sunlight/UV breaks down these molecules.. I wonder if a UV sterilizer would help too.
