Tap water usually does not look as a danger in your home. In which, if you drink it, there is a good chance you may never feel affects from it.

Drinking Water

Check The Source of Your Tap Water

  • First, you will have to do some research of where you are getting your water. Are you getting it from a well or from a city? Where is the city utility water coming from? Is it in danger of contamination by agriculture chemicals, human waste, or hazardous chemicals?
  • If you feel that the water is in danger, the best thing to do is to have someone professionally test it.

How Can I Make My Tap Water More Safe?
