In the most places of Latvia, except Riga, the drinking water for apartments is taken from underground sources. In Riga the drinking water is taken from underground sources as well as from the river Daugava. All the water that goes to the end user, must comply with drinking water standards stated in Regulations No. 235 of Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Latvia. However, the biggest problem in Riga and many other cities of Latvia is old, outdated water supply systems, whose pipes degrading over time create water pollution (mainly, iron sediment).
What to do?
Depending on the wellbeing and beliefs about drinking water quality, we can recommend 2 solutions:
- The easiest and cheapest way to get clean drinking water is to boil it. The water should be boiled for not less than 1 minute, but not more than 5 minutes (if boiled longer, the taste worsens). Else very important is to freeze boiled water and thaw it later, getting a vital, structured, healthy water - and it is all totally for free. However, this process is time consuming, and will always require that extra space in your refrigerator (but, you know, it is not dimensionless).
- The optimal solution - to install water purification filter.
