Tap Water is everywhere we go. It seems to be part of everyday life. However, you never know when it could be contaminated, and that''s what makes a whole lot of people uncomfortable. Some people just don''t care, and they carry their own bottles with them at all times. Others, though, have begun to realize just how important it is to have high quality water available for drinking, cooking and other uses.

In Russia, the government stresses that all homes be equipped with pure tap water. It is a major factor in keeping everyone healthy. People in the rural regions, which tend to be more contaminated, tend to get sick more often from waterborne illnesses. In fact, most of the population has become aware of the need to filter their tap water. The problem still remains that not enough people are filtering their taps on a regular basis.
