The media has been creating a lot of commotion about how third world countries don’t have access to clean drinking water. This being Australia, you can take it for granted that the water you are drinking is clean and safe. Yet, this is not the case. Contaminants are bound to enter the water no matter how hard you try to make sure that they don’t. Though this doesn’t mean that there are going to be worms or dirt in the water, but there are chances that the water may have traces of chemicals, metal and oil.

Everyone knows of the oil spill that happened near Queensland last year. Even though the oil was removed from the water, there is bound to be some residue. It is quite possible that the water may seep into the clean water that is supplied to households across the state. Similarly, homes located near chemical or metal factories have to be extra careful. Chemical is extremely harmful for your health. The traces remain in the atmosphere for a long time and there is a chance that they may be present in the water in the area.

So, what can the average Australian do? The solution to this problem is installing a water filtering system in your home. A good Melbourne plumber will be able to do the job for you. The filter will ensure that the water you are using for drinking and cooking is clean and contains no harmful elements. Most people opt for bottled drinking water, which is mineralized but you cannot be sure about it. It is better to make a little effort to make sure that you and your family are safe.
