Default chloramine removal ??

I've recently moved to an area that uses chloramine in the city water supply. How do I remove it from the water?

Thanks,
Phil

1/4 of a campden tablet per five gallons should do the trick.

RO filters them out.

I know you can boil off chlorine, but not chloramine. There was some talk on the board a while ago about using Campden tablets (1 per ten gallons of water I think) to get rid of it, but I'm not sure about that. If I had that problem, I might just buy some spring water at the store and avoid the issue.

I have chloramine in my tap water and use Campden to treat it. I haven't had any chlorophenol off flavors in my beer.

I've heard that carbon filters run slowly can remove them...

DC pumps chloramine (3.5 ppm) in their water and I don't do anyhting special. They also jack up the pH so they don't get lead in their water, but that's a different story.
