Does the water in the loft water tank reach the drinking taps or is it only for heating?
That water is used in the cold taps in your bathroom and for the heated water you use. Don't drink from these taps.

Answer . There is no proof that drinking tap water makes you bald. It's genetics. Some women going through menopause can lose hair near the crown to their forehead. Men often have "male pattern baldness." Take a look at your family and you'll know what I mean by genetics.. Answer: . Drinking… tap water may cause hair loss for people who suffer from zinc deficiency. Tap water may contain excess copper, from copper pipes, which prevents absorption of zinc by the small intestine. This causes deficiency of zinc, which in turn causes hair loss. People who are in vegetarian diet may face this problem more than those who eat red meat, because zinc availability from plant sources are less. A zinc supplement taken regularly could avoid this problem. (MORE)
Basically, an extraction point in the lake feeds water into supplypipes. These take the water to a treatment plant where it is madesafe for drinking. Further pipes distribute water to communitieswhere water mains, often under the road, then split up to supplyeach building. Depending on the lie of th…e land, the water maybasically flow under gravity, or may need to be pumped. In someareas water towers are used to increase the local pressure. (MORE)

Answer . The only way to increase water pressure is with a booster pump. I would recommend talking to a plumber, he can give you an estimate and possibly some pointers. Also, home improvement shops tend to have poor pump selection so be sure to shop around from catalogs and the internet before… buying anything. (MORE)
Answer . Tap water contains chlorine and fluoride, neither one of these chemicals have been proven to be safe for human consumption. Particularly chloride which is an antimicrobial and may harm human tissues. There have been some studies that suggest that the exposure of pesticides, plastic bottle…s, and chlorine in tap water play a significant role in the high rate of breast cancer for women in the US. There are many people, even experts, that highly recommend domestic filtration systems for drinking water. . Fluoride is added in small amounts in municipal water supplies in most American cities. This is because it supposedly reduces tooth decay. It does to a slight extent. However it has some serious side effects. Fluoride causes average IQ of Chinese children to decline several points. Fluoride damages human chromosomes. Fluoride causes permanent staining of teeth, for which is why the American Dental Association warns mothers not to use fluoridated water in baby formula.. Fluoride combined with aluminum causes damage to the brain resembling Alzheimer's disease, and aluminum is present in some baking powder as well as some drinking water. Moderate levels of fluoride exposure (e.g. 0.9 ppm in the water) can exacerbate the neurological defects of iodine deficiency, reduce melatonin hormone, and leads to an earlier onset of puberty. Fluoride also increases absorption of lead into the body. . With all of these considerations taken into account, the final verdict may be that tap water, even in industrial countries, may be unsafe to drink. (MORE)
Answer . No, never drink hot tap water, but cold tap water is actually really healthy for you!
\nI reckon there is no air vent pipe on the drain line of the toilet you are flushing and the siphon action is sucking out the water in the loft toilet also.
Yes, in most cities. Water treatment in the majority of Europe is as safe or safer than in the US. Typically, it is not done; Europeans usually prefer bottled water or mineral water over tap water. If you find yourself in more rural areas, it should still be safe, but if you are concerned, the bottl…ed varieties are always available. If this is not an option, you are still averse to drinking tap water in other countries, and you find you will be traveling Europe for an extended period, invest in an inexpensive water filter straw (available at most hunting or sporting goods stores).

\nIt is bad to drink tap water because there are lots of chemicals in side it but most people who do drink it there bodies are used to it so it will not harm them to much or any one else
Yes It is not necessary to give them bottled/treated water unless your tap water is unfit for consumption. The small amounts of chlorine in city water is not going to harm them.
Most people believe that you should never drink or cook with hot water from your faucet. The hot water is more likely to have a higher lead content.. Instant hot water machines that are installed under you kitchen sink are designed for drinking. Water heaters installed in your house are not.
Actually, All water is tap water there's really no difference at all? The only good water is figi water it's the only water that actually gets purified alot better so if u want good water buy figi.
no it is not safe because all tap water is cleaned with bleach and other chemicals don't be astonished because every tap water is like this.
Yes, it is basically safe to drink. Tap water in Japan is treated with ozon or chloride. Amounts of chemicals used in treatement vary according to the quality of the water sources. \nTap water in mountainous areas (ex. Nagano pref) where small amount of chemical is needed, is particularly famed for …its "sweetness". The water gets tastier recently in Tokyo where use of chloride in treatement is mostly replaced with other method such as ozonization.\nIn rare cases tap water can taste bad when the pipeline in the building gets rusty or the water tank of the building is badly maintained, for example the lid of the tank is moved open, letting everything from the sky to drop inside! In such cases boiling the water to have a cup of green tea might be a better option compared with just drink it directly from the tap, but just go find a bottle of water at a ubiquitous convenience store.\nFor some (particularly elderly) people in the country, tap water is believed to cause an obscure long term health hasard due to chloride-derived carcinogenic compound such as tryhalomethane and other chemicals and buy drinking water at the supermarket where water treatment machines said to remove such chemicals are installed. However, at least accute hasard such as epidemics of infection or incidents of heavy metal poisoning is almost unheard of for 30yrs. (MORE)
Yes, but you must use a water conditioner to remove any chlorine, or chloramides prior to putting water into your tank.
For the most part, liquid water expands when heated, and so does pretty much every material. Water's volumetric expansion is a few hundred parts per million per degree Celsius. The interesting thing about water, though, is that if it's below 4Â°C it expands as it gets colder, i.e. it has a nega…tive volumetric expansion coefficient. (MORE)
\nYes if the tap water is not purified. It s safer because all of the germs and bacteria are killed and tap water can still have germs if not purified.
It depends really, some bottled water is just a more pure tap. Some include vitamins that may not be found in tap water. Honestly, one should just buy a water purifier that can be mounted to ones sink. The filter will clean about as much gunk out of the water as their industrial filters, also it is …more environmentally and financially less straining. (Less plastic to take up space in landfills, and it's cheaper.) (MORE)
You increase the spaces between the water molecules, thus abling more salt to be dissolved in the water
In the US , not necessarily, as some bottled waters are just from a tap somewhere anyway. In a foreign country, probably a good idea , if the bottled water is a known brand.
Very little needs to be done to tap water originating in the developed world. In the United States, for instance, the quality and cleanliness regulations that must be met are actually often much more rigid for the water that comes out of your tap than you would find in a bottle at a store.
in my personnel opinion there is really nothing safer in this world then tap in America. iv been drinking tap my whole life.
Install a reverse osmosis filtration system to improve water quality. (usually costs about $300-400 installed) This reduces or eliminates most contaminants that cause water to taste bad. Sometimes you have to have other filtration items installed as well, depending on your personal water supply. … The best way to find out is to contact a professional (ie-culligan) to test your water and see what needs to be done.

Only if your tap water is filtered by the Epa. They run the rules for filtering tap water while bottled water is run by the food and rug administration. Only 3% of the water u find in bottle water has to be spring water the rest is...tap water. Either way your drinking tap water. There are differe…nt kinds of water purification or water filtration systems. It is easy to get confused with the different methods of water treatment water softening, water conditioning, water filtering, reverse osmosis, water ionizing or ultra violet water purifying. And as there are different methods of water treatment, there are also different manufacturers. When was the last time you had your water quality checked? If you're on a well, you NEVER know what's in your water. It could be anything from sediment, to bacteria to sea otters! Then there are those on city water who may not be aware of the need for treatment. Of course they definitely know that swimming pool taste and odor which is why they spend hundreds of dollars each year on bottled water. Take control of your water, take control of YOUR HEALTH. I recommend trying to use Hague WaterMax for the whole house treatment. The beauty of WaterMaxÂ® is that whole-house water treatment happens in one appliance.

The tap water in Taipei, Taiwan is safe to drink. The Taipei Water Department conducts regular tests of water from purification plants and from consumers' premises, and has found water from 99.95% of sources to be safe for drinking (Taipei Water Department, 2012). Independent tests conducted by Cons…umers' Foundation has also found tap water in Taipei to be safe; interestingly, they also found that 2 out of 16 bottled water samples were not safe (Taipei Times, 2008). . http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2008/06/07/2003414093 . http://english.twd.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=994056&CtNode=23900&mp=114012 (MORE)
people drink bottled of water because its more healthy and in tap water there is bacteria and has and odor to it. this means its not filtered.
It's the same water from the same source, regardless of whether it is cold or hot. If the water is properly treated and filtered then it is safe. If it is not treated correctly, it is not safe.
It was last time I was there, The stuff is a bit hard but the authority generally do a good job at keeping the water safe.
Yes! Where else do you get your water from? Maybe a bottle.. but theres no need, Tap water is Absolutely Fine. I've been giving it to mine every week for three years and they arent dead yet so im sure its fine(: Haha. Good luck :P
No one really knows. Scientists are still studying if tap water is better than drinking water.
There is a shutoff valve on the cold pipe going into the H/W tank, if you close it no water will come out of the tank. There should also be a shutoff valve on the wall below each faucet/tap.
Looking for the same thing i can only hazard a guess that it will be close to that of pure water and it would vary from region to region. The specific heat capacity of water is 4.18 J/(g x Â°C).
Of course. You should always read about your frog type before attempting to, but frogs can survive with tap water.
You can, but you must first wait a full seven days so your body can adjust to the heat. Otherwise, the violent reaction of Venezuelan water and unadapted bodily systems will result in mild diarrhea.
Dirty water can mean several things. If you are talking about turbidity(cloudy) water then here are the most common reasons. If only in the hot water, probably you hot water heater. These are big steel tanks that corrode and over time build up sediment. This transfers into your hot water lines from …the tank. (MORE)
Well i heard they can and that they cant. I know i give my anole and long tailed lizard purified water. If you want to know what i use to dechlorinate my water? A cuisinart clean water cooler/ heater. I use a generic CVS brand spray bottle and fill half up with the hot water, and room temp water. Yo…u will have to turn it off at night because it gets loud ( i aloso have to replace the filter). My dad got it at Sears in the mall and it really works. Ive only screwed up once and put tap in and witnessed my precious green anole drink it. And let me tell you, i got soo scared due to the fact that i thought he was going to die. But hes perfectly healthy and eats like a champ. So ill say just a little tap water here and there will be okay, but your best bet is to either get the system like me, put dechlorinating drops in, or if you have absolutely no other option, let it sit out for atleast 24-48 hours or boil it in a clean, sterile pot. I hope i helped you! Good luck with your herp (MORE)
That depends on the purity of the water in the country or area your in, the tap water in the UK is safe to drink, Spain has a high mineral content and can upset your stomach, in other countries the water needs to be boiled to kill dangerous bacteria that could make you ill.
YES you can depending on where you are you might have well water which tastes like iron you can drink it if you like it most people don't like the taste of it but it's actually good for you.no matter where you are in the us you can drink the water! Enjoy
It's almost 100% not infacted with anything. No toxins, microbes or pollutans. it also doesn't contain as much substances, giving it taste and odor. And the beggest advantage is, that you can drink it from a bottle, which means, that we throw about 40 million plastic bottles in the trash per day.
Because it gets fillterd in a big pipe that leads to your house Shaun George Tema year 7 7a 11 years of age
Yes, of course. The water is also very good because it arrives directly from the mountains
Yes. French tap water, like almost ALL tap water in western countries, is completely safe to drink in most cases, it is rare in almost any western country to be unable to drink tap water..
That, of course, depends on which bottles water and which tap water. . In general, tap water is held to higher regulatory standards than bottled water so the answer is usually no. Most bottled water is not fortified with fluoride so drinking it rate than tap water can be detrimental to your teeth. …Also, some plastics leach chemicals that can be bad for your health. . (MORE)
In theory, yes, bottled water is said to be safer to drink than tap water. Bottled water has been specifically purified so that it is safe for all to consume. In some parts of the world, tap water is not safe to drink as it may be contaminated.
It depends on where you are. In major cities like Beijing or Shanghai, which are very modern and industrialized, the major hotels and businesses have safe drinking water, as do most of the homes of the middle and upper class. The problem is out in the rural areas, or where poor people live. In such …places, there may not be a modern system of plumbing, nor a way to filter the drinking water to remove bacteria and pollutants. (MORE)
Yes it should be. Water goes through many purification stagesbefore it reaches your tap, so you should be fine.
You should not drink tap water in hotels because of crosscontamination on the faucets. If the hotel rooms and bathrooms arenot cleaned properly, you can get sick.
