Drinking Impure Water. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 December 1880
Drinking Impure Water. Set a pitcher of ice-water in a room inhabited and in a few hours it will have absorbed from the room much of the respired and perspired gases of the room, the air of which will have become purer, but the water perfectly filthy. This depends on the fact that the water has the faculty of condensing and thereby absorbing all the gases, which it does without increasing its own bulk. The colder the water is the greater its capacity to contain these gases. At ordinary temperature a pint of water will contain a pint of carbonic acid gas and several pints of ammonia. The capacity is nearly double by reducing the temperature to that of ice. Hence water kept in the room awhile is always unfit for use, and should often be renewed, whether it has become warm or not. And for the same reason the water in a pump stock should all be pumped out in the morning before any is used. That which has stood in the pitcher over night is not fit for cooking purposes in the morning. Imp...
