Tap Water

In Julia's Updates by Julia Somerville

Hi folks, I thought I’d share a picture of the grime that’s left in my water distiller from tap water. This is after using it 5 times. Tap water may look fairly clear when it comes out of your tap, but in reality it contains many impurities. Before tap water leaves the treatment plant, it is treated with various chemicals such as liquified chlorine, fluorosilicic acid, aluminium sulphate, calcium hydroxide, sodium silicofluoride, to name a few. Then the water travels through pipes, some of which may have been underground since Victorian times. It’s impossible for the water not to become contaminated by something undesirable.
Over 300 different man-made chemicals have been detected in British tap water. Water companies only test for around 20 of these chemicals.These twenty chemicals are all present in varying amounts for example DDT, Simazine, Atrazine, and 3,4 Benz pyrene, (weed killers), not to mention the heavy metal contamination. Not good folks. Invest in a distiller, or at least a very efficient water filtration system.
