About Household Water Source

>> Mar 12, 2014

Tap water is one option of common clean water source in households. In my previous home located in another city, we prefer to soil water than tap water as its water was muddy once in a while. Tap water (city water, municipal water) is a major component of indoor plumbing, which became obtainable in city areas of the developed world during the last quarter of the 19th century and widespread during the mid-20th century (Wikipedia).

In our current home, we only use tap water. My father had ever made a well but then it’s closed permanently. Tap water can be applied for various purposes such as for drinking, watering, cleaning, bathing and cooking, but we still seldom use tap water for our drinking water.

Governments of developing countries like Indonesia seem still not able to provide city residents with ready-to-drink tap water. The water isn’t yet safe to drink straightly with no boiling it first. Even my late father never drank boiled tap water without getting stomach ache after doing it.
Tap water in our kitchen. Not my current shot, it came from my photo archives.
Until now, we buy bottled water in gallons for daily drinking water. I heard that chlorine added to tap water or public water supplies. Larry West at environment.about.com mentioned that chlorine can destroy harmful bacteria on water or pipes effectively and efficiently but unfortunately it may also lead to other health problems.

Safer alternative to chlorination for water treatment is by using ozone to sanitize water supplies. Some cities in US, Europe and Canada have applied ozone for water treatment. Another option is doing your own home filtration at the faucet. Suggested water filters to remove toxins in tap water are carbon-based water filters. If you are patient enough, you may use this cheaper option: put container that filled up with tap water in the refrigerator. Let it uncovered there for 24 hours. It’s said that this way can make chlorine removed.

So, how do you get water for drinking in your household?

Wells fascinate me; blame those little fairytale books :) Tap water is convenient. That's a lovely shot.

one day the world is going to run out of clean fresh water supply
with all the destruction to our forest and river pollution.
