White On The Surface Of Drinking Water?
Hi Doctor, I drink water using well water. But before cooking, we usually strain and strain again using pure it. Then we just cook. But after cooking, every time I see there is a white type on the surface of the water. Is my water not drinkable? Even though before cooking there was no white surface of the water

The white of the surface of your drinking water can come from substances contained in well water, filters and heating pans. Substances react when heated at high temperatures. Have you taken proper care of the water filter? Have you cleaned the heating pan well?
In general, drinking water that is healthy and suitable for consumption is water that has physical characteristics, microbial content, and chemical ingredients in accordance with World Health Organization (WHO) regulations or national drinking water quality standards. In Indonesia, the general requirements for drinking water are based on Minister of Health Decree No.907 / MENKES / SK / VII / 2002, namely:
1. Has no taste, odor or color, is not turbid and not in high temperature.
2. Does not contain bacteria, such as E. coli.
3. Does not contain chemicals, such as pesticides and disinfectants, exceeding the permitted limits.
You should check well water, filtered well water and drinking water (filtered water that has been cooked). Go to a water quality inspection laboratory in the local area. Meanwhile, you can consume bottled water that is sold cleanly and not exposed to direct sunlight.
Thus hopefully useful.
