Additives to water to stop pipe corrosion

Our strata said yes to a program that will have our water treated with chemicals that (supposedly) will slow the pipe corrosion.

I am concerned about what this will affect our health. What is the best filtration system to remove these additives?

Response:

It's hard to say without knowing what the chemicals are.

I would try to find out what the additives are and then call or chat online with one of the water filter companies (such as Crystal Quest or Aquasana) to determine the best filtration.

In most cases, a multi-stage filtration system that uses activated carbon and KDF will remove most chemicals.
