Many rural families have their own wells, so it is convenient to take a bath, wash clothes or drink water. But most well water is not treated and may contain various bacteria, so do you know if there are bacteria after the well water is boiled? Even people who have a well at home usually boil well water to drink, but some people will ask if there are bacteria after the well water is boiled?
The bodies of the killed microbes remain in the water, and some high-temperature resistant bacteria will remain in the water. Ordinary boiling water cannot completely remove various bacteria and microorganisms from the water. However, boiling water treated water essentially kills most of the treated microbes and bacteria and is safe to drink. You’d better install sediment filters for well water. In addition, the human body itself needs to receive some beneficial bacteria from the outside world to help the body digest and work.
The correct way to boil water is to open the lid when the water is quickly opened (80-90 degrees Celsius), then cook for 2-3 minutes, then turn off the heat. If you can't grasp the time when the water is about to boil every time, open the lid immediately when the water boils and wait 2-3 minutes.
Tap water that people drink is chlorinated and sterilized. 13 harmful substances can be separated from the chlorine treated water, of which halocarbons and chloroform also have carcinogenic and teratogenic effects. When the water temperature reaches 90 degrees Celsius, the content of halogenated hydrocarbons increases from 53 micrograms per kilogram to 177 micrograms, which is twice the national drinking water sanitation standard. Experts point out that drinking uncooked water, bladder cancer and rectal cancer increased by 21%-38%. When the water temperature reaches 100 degrees Celsius, these two harmful substances are greatly reduced as the steam evaporates. If you continue to boil for 3 minutes, it is relatively safe to drink. Finally, the water will remain after it boils
