WHY WE PREFER OUR TAP WATER
- The city’s drinking water has exceptional physiochemical properties.
- It has a pleasant taste; it is odourless and clear.
- It is running water and reaches consumers at just the right temperature.
- It contains dissolved natural mineral salts and trace elements that give it its flavour and nutritional value.
- It is healthy, microbiologically safe, and free of organic compounds and heavy metals.
- It is environmentally friendly because it is not bottled.
- It is about 1,000 times cheaper than other types of water.
- It is tested in our laboratories every day, 7 days a week-365 days a year and meets all specifications stipulated by current legislation (Joint Ministerial Decision Γ1(δ)/ΓΠ int. 67322/Government Gazette Β/3282/19.09.2017 in compliance with Council Directive 98/83/EC on the quality of water intended for human consumption, as amended).
- The legislative framework on drinking water is particularly strict, both with regard to testing frequency (more frequent testing) and with limits on tested parameters (lower limits), as compared to other types of water that one might consume. This provides an additional guarantee on the good quality of drinking water.
