Do You Know What You’re Drinking?

What’s Actually in Your Drinking Water?

Every day, people drink water from taps. Both at home, and in the office. But what is actually in your drinking water? The UK has some of the safest and best drinking water in the world. But, this does not mean it is completely pure. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing! Essential minerals and ions are found in tap water.

In different regions across the UK, water is richer in certain minerals. For example, some water is rich in limestone, and even sodium. This can affect the taste of the water and leads some people to worry about water purity. We all know somebody who will only drink bottled water… Fear not though, there is no need to panic. Billi products and their unique, innovative water filtration system eliminate the risk of consuming unclean water.

Billi premium filters ensure that health threatening pollutants and impurities such as sediment, chemicals, heavy metals and pesticides are removed. This leaves you with refreshingly clean drinking water, every time. Replacement filters can be purchased directly from Billi by calling 020 7456 6789, or via one of our distributors’ online shops.

So, you pick up a glass and head for the tap. You pour yourself a glass of the clear stuff. What is in your tap water before it’s filtered?

The prevalent chemicals, bacteria, minerals and ions found in drinking water are:

  • Chlorine
  • Fluorine compounds
  • Trihalomethanes (THMs)
  • Hormones
  • Nitrates
  • Pesticides

Drinking water travels from the source, through pipes, to you. Even if the water is pure at the source, it’s important to remember it could be travelling through pipes as old as the Victorian times. Saying this, tap water is still the freshest drink you will find. Millions of tests are conducted annually to guarantee the best possible quality of water for consumers. That makes tap water the most supervised drink out there. All tap water intended for human consumption supplied by water companies is subject to stringent standards, which make sure you can drink it on a daily basis without any harm.
