Does smoking of tobacco in rooms affect the quality of tap water?
the water cannot be affected...
the smoke in your room does not affect the quality of the tap water. Smoking may affect your lungs and general health though because passive smoking is dangerous. Smoking may affect the water quality indirectly in the long term because the leftovers of the cigarettes are toxic and insoluble and they end up in the ground, thus polluting the water sources and negatively affecting the environment.
I hope I've answered your question. If you'd like any clarification, I'll be glad to provide it!
no documented danger...
I understand your concerns. The wall contamination is a well-known effect of smoking and sometimes it's even visible if the inhabitant is not very keen on cleaning... The tap water seems to be a different case though. Running water cleans the dirt and no similar effects are expected. There is no study that I know that has addressed this issue but it seems reasonable to believe that there is no problem with tap water.
I can't say... I suppose it depends on whether the local water supply is supposed to be used for drinking or for bathing only. You've got to ask the local authorities for that. The kitchen and bathroom water supply is usually the same. I wouldn't drink the warm water though...
