Types of Water Source
Mains water is typically processed via a water treatment plant in order to bring the water to a condition where it meets drinking water guidelines. Whilst mains water typically meets drinking water guidelines, it is far from perfect and consumers frequently face problems with chlorine, sediment, taste and odour, hardness and on occasion, even bacteria.
Rainwater is reasonably consistent in terms of quality and there generally aren’t many things that need to be treated before it’s ready for drinking or using throughout your home. However, there are a number of water quality factors worth looking into to ensure it’s safe for your family including, bacteria, sediment, and low pH.
Bore Water, Surface Water, Other Sources
