While it is true that most of the time, the water in our cities and towns are still safe to drink, it is not completely up to standard anymore. Because the water is contaminated with such a lot of bacteria, more and more chemicals has to be added to kill them off.
So, now the question is, when will the limit of safe chemicals in the water be exceeded? How do we know that we will not get ill from it in the long run? This is one of the reasons I'm looking at a homemade water purifier.
Now, you may well say, why not bottled water? The reason is, even though most of the bottled water out there is perfectly safe, some are not and we do not know which ones. On top of this, if you only drink bottled water and you use only bottled water in your cooking, it is going to get very expensive, so looking at a homemade water purifier is not a bad idea.
