You may think that drinking tap water in Romania is safe. However, you might be surprised to know that many people have developed various health problems from the water that comes from the taps of homes, shops and even restaurants. So, what should you do about it?
This is where the use of water filters becomes important. These are devices which can make sure that your tap water is free from bacteria and other contaminants. They are designed to purify the water so that it is clean, pure and safe for consumption.
The process of filtering tap water is called distillation. The basic principle is to boil the water which is used to make soap, detergents and other cleaning solutions, and then condense the steam back into pure water.
Unfortunately, as water is heated, some impurities can enter into the water, including some metals such as lead and copper. Even chlorine can be found in the water when it is used in the treatment plants.
Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
