Flush Your Water Drinking Taps
Some plumbing fittings within our homes have the potential to allow minute traces of metals to accumulate in water standing in the fittings for several hours.
Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mug full of water from your drinking water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fittings.
Rather than waste it, this mug of water is perfectly safe to use to water your plants each day.
