Drinking Water

Many New Zealanders rely on untreated water sources like roof water, bores, springs and streams. All surface water contains bacteria, although some water is more often and more badly contaminated than other water. Contrary to popular believe, roof water supplies have caused many illnesses due to micro organisms.
Here a few tips for reducing the risk of getting sick:
Keep the roof gutters clean.
Ensure the tank is securely covered and that birds or animals (and especially their wastes) can’t get in.
De-sludge your storage tank regularly.
