April 20, 2016

5 Unsafe Drinking Water Sources

It is not safe to drink from the following sources:

  • Radiators
  • Hot water boilers (home heating systems)
  • Water from the toilet bowl or flush tank
  • Water beds: fungicides added to the water or chemicals in the vinyl may make water unsafe to use.
  • Swimming pools and spas: chemicals used to kill germs are too concentrated for safe drinking but can be used for personal hygiene, cleaning and related uses.
