Chai, I feel like vomiting all the so called pure water I have been drinking cry. I performed a water analysis using pH test reagent. Checkout the result below. NAFDAC should come to our rescue o.

Sachet (pure) water - 5.0 (acidic)
Borehole water - 7.0 (neutral)
Boiled and filtered - 8.5 (alkaline)

WE SHOULD ALWAYS BOIL OUR WATER NO MATTER IT'S SOURCE

I don't understand


So because you tested a sachet of purewater made at the backyard of your village, you concluded that every sachet of purewater is the same

I can see you have already taken too much of the polluted sachet water

No but the one I tested has Nafdac Number. You can test yours and post to help the matter..

Op, you are just generalizing. All depends on the source of water you use in the test. Like the borehole stuff, if you are testing using those from Lagos, in fact, acid level suppose to exceed 100 (if all the pH level get to that or you simply extend it, sha!)

The stream in my village remains the best to any other source of water.

. Which one out of the 3 is Advisable for Drinking ?
Re: See Why Sachet (pure) Water Is Not Safe For Drinking (pictures) by omicpet(m): 6:21am On Nov 18, 2018
First to begin with op's analysis is totally wrong.
pH which is the measurement of oH(-) and H(+) ions in a liquid from (ranges from 1-14 ) is dependent on source and chemical components of the liqud in question .

Now as for water , water sourced via drill means (borehole) pH is determined by constituents of the soil (land factors ) , level of drill , aquiver attained and need not I mention other things.

Back to the issue of sachet water . Water producing companies have a variety of wter treament procedures . For some it's the coagulation , use of bed filters ,resin treatemnt and use of chemicals such as in sodium hydroxide , calcium carbonate etc in boosting the pH of the acidic sourced water . Some other Fe companies take it a step further by using reverse osmosis systems.

Mind you know the general accepted pH range of drinakble water is 5.5-8.2. and your best bet to a raw sourced water of pH for 6-7 are uncontaminated streams. Your rain water which was the best source of water is currently acidic(greenhouse effect and carbon monoxide relasesd into the air(air pollution ).

You should also know pH is probably the least of your worries , ever considered the microbia count (unseen living organism ) of the water you are drinking ?

And then comes what you term the taste ( resultant effect of the TDS (total disolvable solids ) present in the water like lead(pb) , calcium , magnesium , zinc etc .

Now do you know some produced sachet water have better sensory, chemical and biological composition than celebrated bottle water when due evaluation is carried out ?
.

Nice try putting to test what you where taught in class , the foundation has been laid . Learn to ask why, what and when ; 3 great W to never lack in knowledge and you'd be enlightened beyound your imagination .


Need not I forget boiling your water only slightly has an effect on pH due to oxidation . You should read more

I hope you tested different brands of sachet water because it is a fact that they all do not have the same level of standard of production.

I used to have a neighbor who got into the sachet water business and for a year or two, they did not have a NAFDAC number and they sealed every sachet of water manually. The owner was arrested and locked up several times before they did the needful. There are a lot of other sachet water brands like this. I bet you will find a bottled water brand that will fail this your pH reagent test.

How about you test across brands and let us know a well-known brand that passed so we will buy that brand? Thank you.
