Drinking Water Problems + Possible Solutions

Drinking water in the United Kingdom is usually of very high standards
but occasionally drinking water is not up to standard and can cause health problems.

Examine your drinking water - it should appear clear and bright.

If it is discoloured, cloudy or has an unwanted taste or smell -
contact your local water company and have your water tested.

Though check if they charge !

Common Problems with Drinking Water

pH Low alkalinity water
tends to dissolve minerals + metals -  Use Soda Ash to raise

pH High alkalinity water
tend to precipitate minerals + metals - Use white vinegar or citric acid to lower

Aluminum - discolored water
Chloride - salty taste
Color - visible tint
Copper - blue green colour + copper taste
Corrosion -
metallic taste / corrosion / fixture staining
Fluoride - spotting + mottling of teeth
Foaming Agents - MBAS - suds + bitter taste + odour
Hard Water - lime scale deposits + reduced heating efficiency
lowers lifespan of boiler units
requires more soap + rusty colour
Iron - sediment + reddish or orange stains + metallic taste
Manganese - dark brown + black stains + bitter, metallic taste
MTBE - Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether - sweet solvent odour
possible carcinogen
Odor - rotten egg or musty or garlic or chemical smell
Silver - skin discolouration + grey tint in white part of eye
Sulfate - medicinal taste + acts as a laxative
Zinc - metallic taste

Possible Solutions

The use of carbon block refrigerator fridge ice water filters
can offer some protection for these possible drinking water issues.

Particularly - colour + odour + MTBE + MBAS

Other issues may require a more sophisticated water filter
eg. oxidizing filter
or reverse osmosis distillation type filter or water softener
