Tap Water verus Spring Water in Ankara

As a general rule, people will tell you not to drink the tap water. However, you can cook with it and use it in small ways. It should be clarified that the water is not contaminated in Ankara---bacteria is not the fear---it is merely because the water in Ankara is very hard. This means that there is a lot of minerals and calcium in the water which technically can lead to problems in the future with kidney stones or calcium build up in the body. The hard water is the reason for the overabundance of lime scale residue in your shower and tea kettle. It is also the reason your shampoo doesn't lather very well!
