I am a bachelor aged 52 years. I usually purchase a 20 ltrs water bubble from market for cooking rice and use the same water for preparing curries also. As and when water get exhausted, I purchase another 20 litres water can (buble). Is consuming that water also harmful for human body? This is because there is no one else in my house for storage of water in any other container at the time of release of municipal water in my street. Kindly guide in this regard.

I would say that the bubble water may not be completely safe for direct consumption. It is a good idea to boil the water before using it for your personal consumption. This will protect you from many water borne diseases like dysentery, hepatits, colitis, cholera and so on. I hope this helps.
