How clean is toilet water to drink?
Certainly, toilet water may be clean but not safe to drink unless it is recycled. That is if you can get past the ‘disgusting’ factor in your mind. In some parts of the world, they have tried to combat their problems of short water supply by incorporating recycled wastewater into their water supply. The water has been used for irrigation and other non-drinkable purposes. Still, experts say this water follows the same technology used to treat drinking water that is contaminated, and the end result is the same. Wastewater treatment usually involves combining several technologies such as clarification, reverse osmosis, ultraviolet light, evaporation, and chemical treatment into a cohesive high-performance solution that produces pure water- perhaps even purer than rivers or spring water.
