Q5. I used boiled water. Isn’t that enough
A5. Boiling water does not remove toxic metals like Lead, Mercury, Asbestos, Arsenic and chemicals like pesticides, nitrates and other solvents. Not only does it leave the water flat tasting; it also does not like viruses like Gardia, Lambia and Crypto as they need much higher temperatures to be killed than the water’s boiling point. Additionally boiling also hampers the mineral content of water’ leaving the minerals at the brim of the pot. Sometimes; boiling can do more harm than good as clean / pure water vaporizes; leaving behind a higher concentration of harmful contaminants.
Q6. Is it different from the filter water that I get from the government filtration plant?
