Can anyone advise on how to test water to determine if it’s safe to drink?

I’m looking at a 1930s house for a client. The original water tank is in the attic space but a combi boiler has been fitted. When I turn the taps on I don’t hear anything from the water tank so I assume it has been disconnected and that the tank is still in the loft because he costs to remove it were considered too high (is there another non-intrusive way of determining this?) Yellow water comes from the taps when I first turned them on, I assume that this is just because the house has been empty for a few months? Is there some testing I can do to the water from the bathroom and kitchen taps to determine where the water is coming from and if it is safe to drink? submitted by /u/IndustrialStrengthNo [link] [comments]
