In general, even water that has been sterilized by a water plant can’t guarantee there is no water quality problems. If the problem is mild, it is difficult to observe with the naked eye, but if it is not a small problem that can be ignored, tap water will also remind us through various aspects. For tap water, we mainly observe the following aspects:
1. Water color: We can try to use a transparent glass to pick up the water, and then observe whether the water color is clear and transparent. If the color of the tap water changes, it means that it has been polluted. If the water source is polluted, if the green water flows out, there is algae bacteria on the inner wall of the water pipe; if it is yellow, it means that the iron pipe is corroded; if it is white, it may contain water. The bleaching powder exceeds the standard. If it is blue, it may be detergent contamination.
2. Water flow: If the water flow in the faucet is getting smaller, then it means the water pipe is corroded or other impurities are deposited in the water pipe, such as sediment, small animal carcasses, etc., resulting in the water capacity in the water pipe becoming smaller and affecting the water flow.
3. Impurities in water: Use a cup of water and then let stand for a period of time to see if there is any sediment or floating floc at the bottom of the cup.
4. Heavy metal content: After brewing tea with tap water, the tea is allowed to stand for one night, and the color of the tea is observed every other day. If the color of the tea turns black, it means that the iron and manganese in the tap water are seriously exceeded!
If your home’s tap water meets the above conditions, then you should clean the tap water for your home.
