Drinking water

The water from our taps is good, safe and controlled. Legislative Decree no. 31 / 2001 and n. 27 / 2002, implementation of the Directive 98 / 83 / EC, are the reference standards for the quality of water intended for human consumption. Indeed, the latter undergoes two types of chemical, physical and microbiological analytical control: internal, of responsibility of the Integrated Water Service Manager, carried out in laboratories, and external, carried out by the Local Health Authorities together with Harp local courts [Source: Legambiente, March 2010].

The controls yearly obligatory increase depending on the volume of water distributed every day. For example, a pipeline that delivers each day between 100 and 1000 m³ of water and which serves about 5000 inhabitants, undergoes 5 controls year. For its mineral water, however, is scheduled annual analysis (Decree of December 29 2003, Art. 3).

The DL of 31 02.02.2001 definitively clarified, with regard to the maintenance of the requirements of drinking water, where it terminates the responsibility of the paying and where begins that of the property owner or operator of the facility. In fact, the water must remain within the limits of DL 31 withdrawal points (eg the taps at home, shower heads, etc..) But the responsibility of the paying end of the house to the main counter.
From the main counter of the dwelling at the sampling points the responsibility passes to the owner / manager of the property.

In the stretch of the distribution network between the main meter and the point of withdrawal of drinking water features are subject to change which may affect the potability same (eg release of metals for corrosion processes, regrowth of bacteria, Legionella, etc..) Or simply may be alterations of the organoleptic characteristics of the water itself.
In both cases you need to install the appropriate home treatments turning to specialized companies and competent.
