Drinking Water Relevant Materials

Trinkwasserrelevante MaterialienDrinking water quality is one of, if not the most important factors for the protection of human health-worldwide (WHO). Drinking water supplied by the water works or one’s own well comes into contact with a number of materials on its way to the tap. These materials and substances can release compounds into the drinking water and lead to

  • a change of odor and flavor of drinking water
  • Health related relevance
  • An increase of microorganisms in drinking water

Most of the components in preparation and distribution of drinking water are installed fix and have a long-life time. Therefore, it is more than important that high levels of safety are confirmed before being installed in order to keep our most important good clean and to protect human health.
