What can we say about the quality of our tap water in Karlstad, Sweden? Well, it is a world famous producer of tap water. However, they have been under fire for quite some time now. It seems that this town of Karlstad is not only known for its high quality of tap water, but they are also known for putting a cheap price on their product.

You see, their main customers are big companies that buy gallons upon gallons of tap water to be used for many purposes in their production. These companies have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on these products, and they want to be able to get as much as they can for it. They have been doing this by adding other chemicals onto the tap water to make it taste better and smell even better. This has been going on for many years, yet no one ever tells these companies that there is something wrong. When you think about it though, why should they care about the quality of our tap water, when they are the ones supplying it?
