Even if you don’t realize it, the tap water in your house may be dangerous. While the tap water does go through the city’s filtration system it does need to pass through miles and miles of piping that, realistically, hasn’t been changed in decades. It only takes one small bit of bad piping, or a leak somewhere along the path, to cause all kinds of issues with your water. In fact, here are seven scary facts about tap water you need to know about.
It’s hard to know exactly where your tap water has been. Sure, it typically flows through the city’s water purification center, but from there it must travel a long way to your home, all the while moving through plumbing that likely hasn’t been serviced in decades (if not longer). If you live in a more rural area the water may originate from a local well, in which case the water is often stationary for long periods of time in an older well, before arriving at your home.
Most people drank water from a well for much of human history. Water wells date back almost 10,000 years, first appearing in the Neolithic era. Wells can provide a reliable source of water when surface water is scarce.
