Tap Water Bremen in Germany is a very rare thing indeed. In this country, the term "tap water" refers to all the municipal water which flows directly from the taps into the bathrooms and kitchen. There are very few companies in this part of the world which supply tap water. The municipality supplies it for free. But, as with other countries around Europe, the quality of tap water can vary a lot from area to area.

What is alarming is that in many places the level of lead in the water is above the legal limit. Lead can be a real problem for young children, for pregnant women and even for adults with special health conditions. For example, lead can prevent people from metabolizing other important minerals in the body, such as potassium. Potassium is used for many important functions in the body, including heart function. Without a good potassium level, the heart will eventually have to work even harder to keep itself healthy.
