Water is one of the basic necessities of life, we may live without everything else. But without water, no life would be possible on this earth. But now due to so much pollution in our environment, even the water which is pumped from deep under the earth is also not pure. Now there are many metals added to the drinking water, and by metals, it is really meant real metal pores in our drinking water. Well obviously these metals are not added by us, but somehow they get mixed with our water system. So if we need to know that which metals are being present then we need to perform testing water for metals.

Metals in Water

The water which is being used from the old pipelines, then they are really rusty, and when water is passed through them, then many Lead pores are also added to them. And if we constantly drink lead mixed water then it could result in many health issues like kidney failure. And if any woman is pregnant then she could result in premature birth or even miscarriage. In the same way, Arsenic could be also added to the water by the same way, and this could result in more dangerous health risks like Lungs Cancer, or even heart failure or major heart attack. Plus you might have heard about hard water, well basically hard water is calcium mixed water.

Purification Process

And drinking this water may not cause some serious health problems but still, it is quite dangerous to use heavy water for a longer time period. And all these metals are surely due to the bad water supply system of UK. And that is why still there are several water companies in the UK that supply water to several homes and buildings. So there is constantly testing water for metals, in order to ensure the safety of citizens of UK. Now it is not just about some germs or microorganisms inside water that could be removed by boiling water at high temperature and low pressure. But now there are metal components inside it, which can be only removed by using filters of various types.
