We get used to how our drinking water tastes. Differences in smell, flavour or visual appearance only emerge if we drink water elsewhere – maybe in a different part of the country or from a filtered source.

You might think your drinking water is clean due to purging methods at the water treatment plant, but is it free of all contaminants? Dead bacteria can remain and during its journey to your home drinking water can encounter other contamination sources.
Where you live will determine the disposition of your drinking water at its point of use – flowing from your kitchen tap.
For example, if you live in a hard water area a high level of calcium and magnesium ion content is present in the water supply. A pre-filter can improve the taste of your drinking water.
Another example would be old iron pipework that poses the risk of heavy metals seeping into the drinking water on its journey to your home.
The best way to determine what’s in your drinking water is to contact your local water authority.
