Watering the flower...

Dear KnowYourV,  

Since there are many microorganisms and bacteria in tap water, can it cause infections internally with the WaterWorks system?

I'm so glad you asked this question, as there are probably many others that have wondered the same thing. In recent years there have been several reports and comparisons made between tap water and several brands of bottled water. I am not referencing them here, but these were done by Consumer Reports, ABC and NBC NEWS.

What they found is that the purity of municipal tap water in places like Los Angeles and New York City exceeded that found in the most popular brands of bottled water like Evian, Crystal Geyser, Arrowhead, etc. Also, on random taste tests by offering water to shoppers on the street in various cities, 9 times out of 10 they picked city tap water over bottled water for better taste.

Bottled water has very few or no regulations on purity standards, unlike the requirements placed on our municipal water systems, which must comply with strict regulatory standards.

However, the most shocking fact for me is that many bottled water companies actually use regular tap water in their bottled water product and just put a fancy label on it for resale as expensive bottled water.

We are fortunate in the U.S. to have a great municipal health and water system to give us clean water into our homes. The bottled water companies have certainly done a great job to convince us otherwise. According to the makers of WaterWorks, if your water is safe enough to brush your teeth with, then it is safe enough to use with the WaterWorks system. If not, then distilled water would be the water of choice.

The vagina itself is full of its own bacteria, good and bad, as we've discussed before. Have faith in the strength of your own body to fight bacteria and heal.
