Sometimes small traces of metal can accumulate in plumbing fittings. Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you discard a mugful of water from your tap each morning before use, to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fittings.
This simple tip is recommended for all households (both public and private water supplies).
