Tap Water Quality Affected by Building Piping in Europe and USA Drives Growing Demand for Bottled Water
Tap water quality in Europe and USA is usually well treated at local Water Utilities, and mainly affected by the water piping, especially in old, and mid-aged buildings, in which lead and copper pipes were installed. Fresh water, especially SOFT WATER, which is naturally slightly acidic, causes extraction toxic metals, like lead and copper from the pipe to the water. Thus millions of families are exposed to toxic heavy metals in their tap water.
Public awareness to this danger is a power driver to use bottled water for drinking and cooking.
