Re: Is Tap water safe for drinking in Zurich?

I'd be long dead if drinking water from the faucet was a problem here.

On second thoughts, it's getting dark and I'm getting tunnel vision......

Re: Is Tap water safe for drinking in Zurich?

It's absolutely safe. Drink it since 28 years.

Just avoid drink tab water from a standpipe if there is a tablet bearing the expression "Kein Trinkwasser". Tablets like this are very rarely. You can find them countryside / in de mountains.

Enjoy

Re: Is Tap water safe for drinking in Zurich?

Anyone who asks if the water is safe to drink here, has obviously NEVER watched Bear Grylls. The man drinks "water" by cutting open a camels intestines and squeezing the "water" from semi-digested grasses. Ever since watching that shit, i can drink water from any tap... almost anywhere. 'Cept India. No tap-drinking there. Would rather imitate Bear. Gettin off-track here but it's all true. The end.

Certainly, but you might want to filter the bath water

Re: Is Tap water safe for drinking in Zurich?

It is safe to drink.I drink it every day. Usually turn the faucett on, and let it run a little bit before.
