Do you drink water from your faucets?

I think water from faucets can no longer be trusted nowadays. I personally prefer purified water but not the least, distilled water is the best. Tap water contains rusts and other pollutants so it's risky. Even if water coming out of your faucet today is potable I think it would degrade later on.

I used to drink water from the tap at my office. My office had a distilled water tank. But it wasn't longer, cause nowdays we find out that water isn't purified to drink but only good as a clean water. I could smell bad like iron pollutan on this water so why I decided not to drink anymore, right now I buy mineral water by myself.

We have less option when we need potable water but to buy bottled water or the purified ones.

No, I don't. I filter my water and then drink it.

I do not drink the water coming from the tap which is highly clorinated. So question of drinking from faucet does not arise. Secondly, the water from the tap is boiled to get rid of germs and then filtered through candled filters and then kept in refrigerator for consumption. It is then crystal clear.

nope, i don't drink water from our faucets. our water here in the philippines is polluted, that's why they put lot and lots of chlorine to clean it for consumer use. but of course, it's still not safe for drinking, instead we buy distilled water. it's much costly though but i may say i can sleep well knowin' my family and i are drinking safe water.

Nowadays, it's really not advisable to drink water coming from the faucet. Here at our place we still have a spring of which is still safe to drink as it has been tested for any microbes. I guess in a highly urbanized place it is safer to drink purified or distilled water.

I don't drink water that comes out of the faucet because pipes cannot be trusted much. I filter it or I buy purified water.

no i don't drink water from faucets because i don't trust it specially my case.....we have poor water services in our area that is why we need to buy purified water from the nearest water station.
