The quality of our drinking water may be absolutely perfect. The waterworks ensures the quality of our most important foodstuff with countless tests and controls. But for all the care taken: no one can monitor the drinking water until it reaches your kitchen and bathroom.
The way from the waterworks to the tap is long – 10 km or more are not uncommon. The longer the distance, the more likely it is that drinking water will carry rust products and deposits from the pipe walls and bring them into your domestic water pipe. This also applies to dirt that may be introduced into the water pipe during repairs to the pipe network. Small particles that can cause great damage in your domestic water installation.
