It’s lovely. Quick question. . .I grew up drinking spring water straight out of an artesian well at my Aunt’s house, and water drawn up from a dug well in buckets at my grandmother’s house. We never boiled the water because it was filtered and pure. Even now my water comes straight out of the ground well unfiltered and untreated and I drink it directly. Why is the water coming from the ground in Scotland not already filtered and pure? Why must it be boiled? I’ll be 70 years old in a few months and have never gotten sick from drinking spring or well water. Just wondering if things are different regarding water in Scotland and other parts of the world.
It’s different everywhere, depends on the geology and what the well has been exposed to over time. Like on a farm you have to account for the activity of the farm animals and whether or not they could contaminate the well. Along with any time the well is worked on can provide a new opportunity for it to become contaminated.
While some may be in an area that benefits from natural filtration like spring water that runs through a mountain could be traveling through granite, etc. that filters the water before it gets to you and keeps it at a good ph level or comes from deep in the ground, etc.
Some areas will have natural contaminants in the ground, or water table is too close to the surface and not isolated enough, etc. Basically, ground water conditions are not universal and can vary even in the same area… While differences can be things like mineral content. So some water may also be healthier and tastier than others as well…
Just doesn’t mean there’s always going to be a problem either, it’s just something to be aware of and that every water source may be different and some may need regular testing or will require filtering, etc. to use. While others may last generations without issue and can even be the type of water that people may pay to be bottled ;-p
Thank you, James. Interesting. I guess Scotland being on an island could greatly affect the ground water, too. Well, the house is lovely enough, and the scenery beautiful enough, to stay there even if one has to boil water. I might add that boiled water loses minerals necessary for daily living and functioning, so one must be sure to take mineral tablets to replenish the minerals lost to boiling. I’m sure bottled water could be bought in town, too.
