Flush Your Taps

Ministry of Health Notice


Some plumbing fittings have the potential to allow minute traces of metals to accumulate in water standing in the fittings for several hours.

Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved
from the plumbing fi ttings.

We are recommending this simple precaution for all households, including those on public and private water supplies.
