Can tap water after boiling it be given to the infant?

Answer: Before you decide to serve tap water to your child, it would be good to ask the management of your water supply network for the access to physical and chemical test results. There are places where water is of better quality, e.g. oligoacene; however, left for longer than 12 hours in a room temperature can be a health hazard, because bacteria and algae multiply in it easily. It is necessary to remember about what types of pipes are used to transport water and which year they were laid. Many transmission pipes are still of old construction, i.e. in their structure they have dangerous for health asbestos and lead. Tap water is secured against various kinds of microbiological contamination by chlorination. Contrary to popular belief, hazardous to health chloride does not evaporate during boiling. Boiling makes water evaporate, and the concentration of chlorine and nitrates increases.
