My mother and her boyfriend have been helping us get our property ready to be lived on, and we're dealing with the well right now. They're both INSISTING that I MUST use chlorine and that there's NO other way to make the water safe. I have stated plainly that I will not allow chlorine on my property. I am so worried that they are going to put chlorine in my well behind my back with the attitude of "what Alice doesn't know won't hurt her." I am positive that there are natural products that work just as well as chlorine. Tea tree oil is one of them, is it not? I need to know how many drops of TTO per gallon of water equals the cleaning/sanitizing/disinfecting power of a gallon of chlorine. I need to know if there is a natural alternative that isn't as expensive as TTO. And I need information that I can print out that will convince them that a natural product works just as well as chlorine.
Thank you in advance!
