Amazing! That is pretty much what I have been saying for years. "If it

I would rather drink the water in my aquaria than out of my tap because
of the chlorine taste in the tapwater. However, bacteria and viruses are
potentially worse for my health than the chlorine in the long run, so I drink
bottled liquids ;-)
The point I am making is that drinkability goes further than just the
chemical content, but also the physiological content. A better criterion
might be "can fish and other indigenous organisms live in it?"
