Indeed it seems many more cities are using Chloramine instead of Chlorine nowadays as it doesn't have the smell of chlorine and lasts longer when sitting in the pipes (18 times longer I believe?).
You may be able to get a water quality report for your city's water, which will tell you whether they use chloramine or not, how much lead is in it, TDS, PH, nitrate, etc.
Prime isn't too expensive and lasts a long time.
