Tap Water

Local household water directly from tap

< read all 3 reviews

As much chlorine as a pool at the Y and the taste of rotten food

I wish I had something good to say about my tap water. This data point greatly varies of course, it was not bad at all in the last town where I lived. Our water here comes from a local river. Let's just say that during the industrial revolution that river had every known chemical dumped into it and has ex-factories lining its banks. Here is a list of things that have been found in that river:
  • stolen cars
  • dead bodies
  • car engines
  • household appliances
  • furniture
  • construction barrels
  • tires
Let's just say that I would never drink that water. No wonder there is so much chlorine in it, something has to kill all that filth. I don't buy bottled water anymore either, we have an advanced filtration system that gets out pretty much 99.9% of everything you don't want to be drinking and magnetically charges the water - it is my headache remedy.

What did you think of this review?

Sounds gross. Fortunately where we live the water comes from a reservoir built in the 1930's. While the water is till quite good it is not as good as it was when I was a kid. Think they are mandated by the Feds to add more chemicals.

Haha, I like how you put that :) 'The Feds are mandated to add more chemicals' I think it is also the combination of persistent chemicals that are dumped into the water supply (drugs and pharmaceuticals, etc...) and the ground water pollution from landfills. Do you know if your water is fluoridated?
May 23, 2010
Yeah, I think so. Years ago very few chemicals were required to bring our water up to standards. The standards have been tightened up and now the water is just not as good as it used to me. Not sure if the extra chemicals were really necessary in our case here.

Yes, as far as I'm concerned I want as few chemicals as possible in my water. But these days that just unrealistic, the pollution is more than any water treatment plant can handle. At least the water in my town is not fluoridated as of now, I really don't want the byproduct of the aluminum industry (used as rat poison by the way) in my water!

If you live in the United States, you have access to the best tap water supply in the world. How good it is and how much you can get depend on the area you live in, but it's all good.

Do you like getting things for free? Do you enjoy knowing that other people are paying for something that you're able to get free of charge? If so, then tap water is for you!    Tap water is perhaps among the healthiest drinks out there, unless it's coming from a proven polluted source. It contains essential minerals, like calcium and magnesium, that many bottled waters lack.    In addition, tap water is cheap. It doesn't cost anything per bottle, including …

About this topic

Wiki

Tap water is part of indoor plumbing, which became available in the late 19th century and common in the mid-20th century. The provision of tap water requires a massive infrastructure of piping, pumps, and water purification works. The direct cost of the tap water alone, however, is a small fraction of that of bottled water, which can cost from 240 to 10,000 times as much for the same amount.

Modern indoor plumbing delivers clean, safe, potable water to each service point in the distribution system. It is imperative that the clean water not be contaminated by the waste water (disposal) side of the process system. Historically, this contamination of drinking water has been the largest killer of humans.

Of all water supplied to studied homes annually, for perspective, 42 percent was for indoor purposes and 58 percent for outdoor purposes.
