How to Remove Chloride from Water (Top 3 Methods)

Chloride is a common anion that combines with minerals like sodium, calcium, and magnesium to form salts.

It’s most often found in groundwater supplies – so if you have a private well, your water probably contains chloride.

Low chloride levels are harmless, but excess can alter water taste and harm plumbing. Discover effective removal methods here.


This method of chloride removal consists of several filtration stages: - A sediment pre-filter - A carbon pre-filter - A reverse osmosis membrane - A carbon post-filter


Like a reverse osmosis system, a water distiller is capable of removing the majority of dissolved solids from a tap water supply.


A deionization (DI) system collects chloride ions on an anion-exchange resin, removing them from water.

The DI process also removes other anions from water, including sulfate, and other ionized minerals and salts.

Most deionization units are countertop systems, but there are also point-of-entry systems that treat your entire home’s water supply.
