Clear, transparent water is not always fit for drinking. It may contain harmful micro-organisms and other pollutants. We should purify water before drinking and it can be purified with the help of water purifier or by boiling.

Clear and transparent water is not always fit for drinking.Water might appear clean, but it may contain some disease causing micro-organisms and other dissolved impurities. Hence, it is advised to purifywater before drinking. Purification can be done bywater purifying systems or by boiling the water.

Surely, clear, transparent water is not always fit for drinking.It is a misconception among people that whatever is clear is germ-free and clean. Clear water may contain harmful micro-organisms and other dust pollutants. We should purify water before drinking either with the help of water purifier or by boiling.
