While wed all like to think that the tap water we drink every day is clean, pure, and safe to drink as is, nothing could be further from the truth. The United States EPA has set standards for more than 80 different contaminants that can be present in tap water because of the health problems they cause. (Examples include but are not limited to aluminum, mercury, uranium, and even arsenic.) Tap water can contain trace amounts of pharmaceuticals, viruses, bacteria, and other organisms as well.
