What do you have to remove from tap water?

In developed countries, tap water is generally considered safe, and thanks to strict EU and national water safety regulations, tap water in the United Kingdom is one of the safest in the world. The municipal water treatment process, however, is not a fail-safe technology and water palatability is not necessarily a top priority for each and every water supplier company, hence, water taste and odour issues brought about by water chlorination and water hardness levels are not always taken into account by water suppliers who are usually more focused on disease prevention.

How is water quality measured?

Water quality refers to water’s biological, chemical and physical characteristics. When water quality is measured, its condition is tested in accordance with certain requirements that are drawn up depending on the human need or intended use of water. In the United Kingdom, drinking water is required to meet the standards outlined in legislation created to protect the public health, and the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) is the authority responsible for ensuring that water providers conform to these standards.

Should I drink tap water?

Bottled water has a huge environmental impact and the wastefulness of packaging water cannot be emphasized enough. Plastic bottles used to package water take hundreds of years to bio-degrade and if incinerated, they produce toxic fumes. Landfills are overflowing with tons of plastic bottles, as recycling is not always feasible and not all plastic bottles can be recycled. According to some estimates, 3 litres of water are necessary to package 1 litre of water. In this context, seeking out an environmentally-friendlier option is a stringent matter. Tap water could be a worthy candidate to replace bottled water, but should you drink tap water? Is tap water safe? With more and more evidence to show that bottled water is no safer or healthier than tap water, switching to it seems like a good alternative.
