Why does drinking water look cloudy?


Cloudy water which clears quickly from the bottom up is caused by tiny air bubbles in the water, similar to gas bubbles in soda pop. After a while, the bubbles rise to the top and disappear. This cloudiness occurs more often in winter when drinking water is cold. Air does not affect the safety of water.
