Drinking Water in India

Drinking Water in IndiaThere is no scarcity of drinking water in India. Most towns and cities have a well planned system of over head tanks that store water which can be used as and when the need be. Though Indian drinking water is clean, it is advisable that you keep in mind some basic safety while drinking water on you visit to India. Given below are some tips and precautions that will be for our own safety.
  • Bottled mineral water is available all through India in all roadside shops. Make sure you drink that mineral water and do not forget to check the manufacturing and expiry date.
  • While eating out in restaurants, make sure you order bottled water only. If they serve you water in a glass that is not clean, insist on getting a bottle and drink from that.
  • Some roadside vendors sell water in plastic bags. Do not drink that at any cost.
  • Do not drink tap water. Tap water is usually used for bathing and laundry purposes.
  • If the water served to you has something floating in it, do not drink it and have it replaced.
  • Some places may offer you water from a handpump. That water is equally harmful and it is not advisable that you drink it.
  • While traveling in trains, it is recommended that you use bottled water for brushing and flossing.
  • If staying with someone, make sure there is an aquaguard, or a water filter. If both are not available, insist on getting bottled mineral water. If that is also not possible, drink boiled water.
