I think if tap water is safe or not depends on the region you live in. I think it is not safe drinking tap water in southern countries but I think in most nothern European countries it is actually safe.

It would be a pretty expensive and impractical decision to not consume any food or drink that had exposed to tap water.
It would mean:
- living on ready supermarket meals outside one's own home,
- never going to a restaurant,
- always drinking directly out of a bottle in all bars,
- washing all dishes at home in boiling or bottled water,
- never using a dishwasher
Even the above assumes that all supermarkets and food packaging companies have employees who always wash their hands in bottled water - unlikely.

After all, there are many people still alive in most of the southern countries!

I have water purifier at home and drink only that water not a tap water. I don't think that the tap water is good enough to drink. (It's my personal view not an advice.)

It all depends on your supplier and how the water is treated and the delivery network used to distribute it. Would you not just go along with the advice of your local authority?
