water was tasted from 10 locations across the UK, including Bristol, Suffolk, Glasgow and Lancashire

It has been reported in The Independent that water was tasted from 10 locations across the UK, including Bristol, Suffolk, Glasgow and Lancashire. Samples were all taken on the same day and kept in the same bottles, with Coventry accumulating the highest mark from the judges. Celebrated for its “clean light smell” and “slightly salty” taste, Ms Dulai explained that water is defined as being hard or soft by the minerals it contains, including calcium and magnesium.

Renowned for their London emergency plumbers, Emergency Plumber also operates throughout the country dealing with a vast range of plumbing and water issues. As such, the team have a natural interest in all aspects of the industry. A representative shares their thoughts on the different aspects that can play a role in the taste of drinking water.

“Whilst our water is of high quality, it is not uncommon to notice a change in taste or odour. It might be worth checking with your neighbours to see if they’ve experienced something similar. These unfamiliar tastes can be caused by plumbing work, for example bitter or metallic tastes from new copper pipe work or rubbery tastes from tap washers.

“It is important to ensure however that you only ever drink or cook with water from the kitchen tap. Water from the hot water system or bathroom taps is not as fresh or as safe. Incorrectly plumbing in a dishwasher or washing machine where the supply pipe connects with your kitchen sink can also lead to problems with drinking water. Those who are concerned there may be a problem should contact a team of fully qualified plumbers.”
