I will move to Nanjing, China in the future. I’m slightly worried about the quality of drinking water and water for cooking etc. What is the best option?
- Tap water - almost certainly a bad idea? as could contain bacteria and harmful pollutants
- Bottled water. I have heard that even standards for bottled water are poor. Are any brands especially reliable? Is it affordable to use only bottled water?
- A water filtration system. Can they return tap water to a safe, good standard? Is there a particular type that is suitable for China’s tap water? Do they require much maintainance?
- Delivery of barreled water for use in a water cooler. This sounds convenient, but are the suppliers reputable?
