Drinking water (also known as potable water) is any water that is clean and safe for consumption, or for use in food preparation. In developed countries, most premises have a supply of potable water available straight from the tap. However, in remote areas and developing countries, many people rely on shallow wells or other contaminated water supplies, which present a serious hazard to life and health. In these areas, bottled water may be brought in, or filtration systems (such as ROWPU units) and chemical treatments (including disinfectants, oxidants, algaecides, biocides, flocculants and pH conditioners) may be used to make locally-sourced water safe to drink.

Waterborne diseases including Typhoid, Dysentery, Cholera and Guinea worm disease are responsible for around 3.4 million deaths annually. Even in developed countries with treated water supplies, some consumers still prefer to buy bottled water, either because they mistrust the cleanliness of their local supply, because they wish to avoid chlorine (used as a disinfectant) or other additives added by suppliers, or simply because they prefer the flavour of bottled waters.
