In my previous articles I have addressed some of the most common problems and fears people have about their Tap Water in China. One of the worries is the contamination of their tap water supply. Many Chinese people do not realize that much of the water they bathe in has leached into their ground water supplies. The contamination of their groundwater can lead to a variety of different health concerns among the people living nearby. The water will also have an impact on their food supply. Many farmers in China will have to find a way to dispose of their contaminated rice paddies.

Water purification in the home is becoming a popular thing to do. This is because the water you receive from the tap may not be as pure as you think. You can purchase certain systems that will reduce or remove the bacteria and metals from your tap water. Many of these units use carbon filtration and ion exchange to clean your water.
