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.
