Do you drink your bathrooms water?

My husband says there's nothing wrong with it?

  • It's the same water as in the kitchen. And the kitchen sink is actually dirty than your bathroom sink. Most kitchen sinks are dirtier than the toilets.

  • Yes and no. I do it I need to take a pill or something. Usually not though.

    I have noticed, my water get's colder in my bathroom than in my kitchen. Is anyone else's like that? It's like that at my mothers house as well, I swear i'm not crazy!

  • I don't not because it's dirtier than the kitchen but because the faucet is older. Older plumbing gives off more chemicals in the water. When you test your water you're actually testing your plumbing. All water is tested by the water treatment plant and is held to a high standard.. it's the way it gets to you that's the problem. If your plumbing is old it gives off more and more iron and chemicals and bacteria etc as it ages.In our apartment it's obvious the kitchen sink has newer plumbing so I stick with that one.


    But I agree, you shower with it, and brush your teeth with it, wash your hands with it, so it's not like it's "tainted". I think it's a mental thing.. you associate the bathroom with doing "unclean things" lol so you think of that when you ingest things in there lol.

  • it is the same as the kitchen, and I agree with Jodi, we're not drinking out of the toilet, are we? lol just kidding but no way I won't but my dog has once. I drink water from my sink if I need to take medicine or I'm real thirsty.

  • Um...as long as it's not the toilets water, it's the EXACT same water as anywhere else in the house.
