To improve the quality of your drinking water, remember the following tips:
- Use a filter appropriate to the specific character of the water in your area.
- Let water from the cold tap sit for a few hours before giving it to your pets or using it to water your plants.
- Boil water to destroy bacteria and remove other impurities.
- Although water may correspond to government standards, its quality deteriorates in the pipes, so use household appliances, such as filters and purification systems, to treat your tap water, or buy bottled water to drink.
