Causes and Effects of Contaminated Water

Although water is abundant in supply throughout the world — and you are likely to have excess where you live except if you live in a desert — it may not be useful at all time and in some places.

This is because most people don’t append the importance of water to it nor do they treat it as it should.

This has resulted in a situation where water is considered as something you want to totally avoid or drink and that is totally dependent on how you treat your own water.

It is easy for an unkempt water to become contaminated and when it is, it can be disastrous not only to your health but also to the environment.

This is why some green conscious organisation are trying to raise awareness about treating water as you treat other items that you consume. While the awareness is growing among the populace, there is still a lot to be desired.

Usually contaminated water can be prevented and the effects stalled — only when you know what can cause it to become polluted and how to prevent that from happening. In these few paragraphs, you will learn what you need to do to ensure you have safe and clean water.

Causes of Contaminated Water

1. Use the proper oil

One of the biggest causes contaminated water is pollution. Often rivers, oceans, reservoirs, ponds — which are the main sources of water for us on earth — are polluted by industrial action where chemicals which are harmful are deposited into these bodies of water. 

In fact, this abuse happens on a daily bases and there have been only meager effort made towards stopping the malady. Individuals are not left out as most are often found dumping items such as soda cans, plastics, and rotten food into water further worsening the condition of surrounding water.

Because the cleanliness of water is largely determined by the environment, it is not uncommon to cite the Third World Countries especially India and Africa where the environment encourages hearten adulteration of water.

Every year we hear stories of how thousands of children die as a result of ingesting water that is polluted.

And this is does not leave out the more developed countries as more stringent measures are being adopted by governments to curtail the rising occurrence of contaminated water even in urban settlements.

Choosing the right oil for your deep fryer is half battle won. Once you know the type of oil you want to use, you will need to fill up the fryer with it, taking care not to over-fill or under-fill it.

If you have a model that have a minimum or maximum fill line, it becomes even easier as you have a ready gauge to guide your measurement.

​The Effects

2. Turn it on and start operating

Talking about the effects of contaminated water might take us to another realm because of the complexities that are now attached. To explain it vividly, let’s look at the food chain and how the adulterated water can pass the effect onto us.

When a body of water is contaminated, the fishes get contaminated too. As a result, the people that consume these fishes are not safe from being contaminated too even after cooking them — as that only reduces the chemicals and harmful properties.

This might lead to disastrous result for someone who consumes a lot of fish. Another possible effect is the spread of cholera and other water borne diseases, which are not restricted to Africa along but gradually gobbling up the rest of the world.

To start using your device, you need to turn it on by plugging it in and using the switch button to power it up.

After that, set the temperature and time and ensure that you obtain the right level of temperature for the oil without going over that.

You also need to maintain a temperature between 350 degrees F and 375 degrees F which is the suitable range for most of the cooking you will be doing.

If your device comes with a thermostat, you don't have to bother too much about the temperature as it will automatically determine the correct temperature.

However, if it doesn't come with one, you may have to get yourself a thermometer to select the right temperature for the oil.

Prevention

3. Pat your food dry

One of the ways of preventing the aftermath of contaminated water is to use a water softener but these are only effective to an level. One of the proposed ways of preventing outbreak is also by reporting plants that are affecting the environment.

Most governments have also setup up different reward and punishing incentives for companies such that companies that violate the regulations are either blocked from operation or fined.

Before drying any kind of food, make sure it is dried and doesn't have any traces of water. You can make use of a kitchen paper towel or cover the food in some dusting to remove any traces of water.

For example, freshly cut potatoes can be wiped with paper towel so that there is no water on it before throwing them into the fryer. Not doing this may cause some dangerous spilling of oil that may be injurious to you or children around.
