Here's what you should know about tap water in the UK

Water is a fundamental necessity in our daily lives, as it helps keep us functioning optimally. Whether it's for cooking, drinking, bathing, or cleaning, tap water serves a variety of purposes. However, have you considered the quality of the water you consume? If you're visiting this website, chances are you have, and we're thrilled to share more information with you! 

Water consumption

Did you know that most Brits have no idea how much water they use? In fact, a recent study found that almost half of the people surveyed, believed they use less than 20 litres of water per day. That's a lot less than the actual average of 152 litres per person in 2021. And if you think that's a lot, wait until you hear about the average household consumption - a whopping 349 litres! It's clear that many of us have some learning to do about how much water we're using, and why it's important to conserve this precious resource. 

The water quality in the UK

The quality of tap water in the UK can vary depending on where you live. The water's mineral content, taste, and hardness can vary depending on the source and location of the water supply. 

Let's take a look at London, as an example of water quality in the UK. If you live in the capital, you'll know that the water is very hard. That means it's packed with magnesium and calcium, which can be a pain to deal with. But London isn't the only place with this problem - around 60% of homes in the UK have hard water. 

Now, you might think you can avoid the issue by buying bottled water, but unfortunately, that's not the case. Most plastic water bottles are made from cheap plastic that contains lots of harmful chemicals like BPA's. And even tap water, which we assume is safe, can contain toxins that can damage our bodies and affect our health. Toxins can come from all sorts of living things like bacteria, algae, animals and fungi. They can also end up in our food, which isn't great news either. 

Luckily, we can take control of our water quality and avoid toxins by being more mindful of what we consume.
