    I need your help please .
    Having a chat on plumbing forum and all of the posters 100% believe that if the fluid in a domestic heating system mixes with the house hold water or the Public water main that the only concern is in taste,colour or a slight tummy bug.

    Remember these same posters giving advice to general public on a daily basis

    If domestic central heating system water is contaminated by pathogenic microogaisms related to waterborne diseases can they survive?

    Can they multiply ?
    Is it a concern if heating water enters and mix with household drinking water ?
    Is it a concern if heating water enters Public water main by back flow ?
    If normal water treated with inhibitors and chemicals contained in heating system mixes with house hold water is it a concern?
