Is it possible to get a coronavirus by bacterium through the drinking water? 

On 5.3.20, in Haaretz newspaper published an interview with Professor Itamar Grotto from Israel.

An innocent question was asked:

Does the virus survive in the water?
And is there a danger of getting stuck in swimming pools?

Grotto’s answer: “There is no danger of infection in swimming pools. The virus is very sensitive to chlorine in the pool.” (For the full reply click here)

Professor Itamar Grotto’s scholarly evasion of the possibility of the appearance of the Corona in drinking water is not accidental and indicates that we are not sure if there is sufficient Chlorine to disinfect drinking water when drinking a glass of water, brushing your teeth, taking a shower, etc.
















Professor Grotto, like many of his colleagues in the world, just doesn’t know for sure how long the Corona virus can survive in the water, and the main question is
whether the corona virus can reach drinking water?

In our opinion, there is more chance that the corona virus will appear in our drinking water. Since we live in countries with large pools of both treated and untreated water, there are a number of such options, starting with pool water pool pollution at the bottom of the building and / or pollution


The upper water reservoir on the roof of the building.

How does it happen?
The lower water reservoir is a fully open reservoir and the upper water tank is covered, but must be partially open for the purpose of gravitating water to the consumers, the sealing of the tank will not allow the tank water to flow down the pipe to the houses.


There are three main indicators of chlorine levels measured in drinking water:

  1. TOTAL CHLORINE – means the total level of all chlorine present in water, including available chlorine and related chlorine.

  2. CONNECTED CHLORINE– the amount of chlorine associated with the organic chlorine-derived sample.

  3. FREE CHLORINE – Available unrelated chlorine level, designed to keep us from a bacterial and / or viral infection outbreak, the maximum chlorine level is 0.5 mg.

In practice, the bitter experience of Americans in the Michigan disaster in the United States that even at the level of 6 mg of chlorine may be an outbreak as it taught them in Michigan, as the whole world must be taught that mistakes happen in a timely manner and do harm to the health of hundreds of thousands of people. Unfortunately such mistakes do not know when they appear, so it is advisable to adopt all American devices without trying to understand them. Governments and its citizens should adopt the lead-free fuel standards and its lead-free water pipe connector.

While in the US a standard was introduced in 1985 regarding the reduction of lead from 1.65 PPM to the level required by “LEAD FREE” standards, most countries will only adopt these requirements after a national disaster.

We have been aware that for 35 years we have been drinking and showering in water rich in carcinogenic lead and this practice continues today.

The question remains open:

Is there any chance of the Corona virus appearing in drinking water?

The closed answer: Sure, it is

To answer this question, we must assume the worst-case scenario

For example, we have no chlorine left in high-rise drinking water, for example, because the container must be open so that all the chlorine has evaporated, or has been linked to organic pollutants (unfortunately, a scenario that often occurs too) and the water does contain bacteria and corona viruses.


You ask how?

Obviously, high-rise buildings are prone to riots, due to the exposure of the open air to water primarily in the lower pools or roof top containers, exposed to hoverflies such as mosquitoes or other animal such as mouse, Pigeon and more Click Hereto read what the BBC has to say in this regard.

And here we have a water tank in the roof of the residential building that is entirely infected with the corona virus, what remains is to consume the water within an estimated 3 hours, according to the publications that the life of the corona virus in the human body is 3 hours.

But if there is a bacteria in the water tank, we already said that the chlorine has evaporated, the corona virus and bacteria can increase the duration of the corona virus due to the bacteria.

Buildings  drinking water reservoir 

So it is very important to get bacteria-free water that is the virus’s storage and transport tool.

Invite a disinfected company and a continuous chlorine meter can be installed, which churns the water down as the chlorine level falls below the desired value, and what the professional company will do (after showing the proper permits and licenses to do so).

The company will check for chlorine remaining, and you should also install a continuous chlorine meter that will know how to maintain the desired value and give chlorine only when needed.

And what to do when there is a pump failure that results from a technical problem, failed maintenance, etc.?

That’s exactly why to buy a H2onero! To stay healthy even when the state or nature fails.
