Where does Town Water come from?
Most town water comes from bores, local rivers and reservoirs. Yes, from those flood swollen brown rivers which feed the reservoirs.
Is it safe?
From bacteria - Yes. Local councils have a duty to provide water that is safe to drink from a bacterial perspective. This is done by adding chemicals, in particular chlorine, to kill the bacteria. But just how beneficial is the tap water you receive? Not as beneficial for as you may think. It is safe to drink from a bacterial perspective, but is it free from cancer causing chemicals and heavy metals?
New Zealand's leading cause of death is now cancer and we lead the world in this fact! We have known carcinogens in our water supply, which must be having an effect. Your health is your responsibility, you decide on how important your health is to you.
Chlorine, fluoride and heavy metals all have major health side effects with long term use. Drinking town water supply over long periods of time can be dangerous for your health.

And every tap has fresh clean tasting drinking water.
