today while i was getting a water to drink i came to think of how safe my water is. i mean, we can see pollution all over. our world is getting crowded and crowded every second. imagine this...the air is becoming polluted and water toxic is rising. in the river we can see dump garbage bags from the nearby community, a lot of flies and cockroaches are coming to feast for those we trash in the canal, mosquitoes are living in a stagnant water and rats are getting bigger and bigger in the dirty places. with these kinds of things we can see, do we think the water we drink is still safe for our health. i know we have a lot of purified drinking water and refilling stations are earing a lot because of that. but how can we know if the water they put in our gallons are really safe. our government have issued a safety standard for that matter but i heard alot of news saying that this and that refilling station violate on or more rule in purification process and their stations are dirty and unsanitize. do you think our government should be tight in issuing a license for anyone who wish to operate a water refilling station?

We all know that our drinking water is not safe enough o drink any more generaly in the whole world. Some refilling stations are not that clean either. So the best way is having a water purifier right in to your own home.. You want to buy PM me. LOL!

You are right. Drinking water which is clorinated enmasse at the storage space is sent through pipes. These water pipes in some places pass under sewage pipe line and all living creates are wandering in the pipes all the time. This water is then stored in your hold hold storage tanks and used for all purposes. Those who have facilities, boil the water and filter it so that all bacterias die and dust is collected in the filter system. Some people fix aqua guard which also provides pure drinking water. At our place, we boil it, filter it, cool it in refrigerator adn then drink. They look crystal clear and I am not cent per cent sure about this. Most of the diseases are water-borne diseases.

filtering water on our home is a good option, we also have water purifier at home, but sometimes i wonder how can we be sure that our purifier really purifies.

water is a big subject anymore... and I have a very hard time with it... I need to break down and buy a water system. I water is brown right now... with all the thawing going around. We buy water in gallon jugs. or I go and have the jugs filled. I don't think I would even filter my water... I don't think it is good enough to even run thru a filter. Yes governments should tighten up on water stations!!!
