During 2012 – 2014 years our study showed significant trend towards growth useage of drinking water purifiers, mostly, for drinking purposes, among peasants and city-dwellers. Peasants – residents of Dnepropetrovsk region (Ukraine) have been performed deterioration quality of piped drinking water as well as smell – 22.6%, color – 14.6%, rust – 13.3%, precipitate – 8.0%, turbidity and suspended solids – 10.6%, taste and aftertaste – 13.3%, foam and impurities – 10.6% (p < 0.05). Minority of peasants – 6.66% consider "problem with drinking water quality does not exist". Our study indicates growth daily consumption of drinking water is related to peasants’ population: from 2 – 5 liters/daily (33.3%) to 20 – 40 liters/daily (33.3%). In the article was shown influence some components of the chemical composition of potable water in the 6 rural tacsons of Dnepropetrovsk region (Zn, Cu, Mn, pH, F, Al, ammonium nitrogen, nitrites, nitrates, oxidation) to the morbidity of 14 y.o. children such diseases as: blood circulation system, tumors, blood and blood organs, anemia, nervous system, congenital anomalies, i.e. blood circulation system (p < 0.05). Correlation was significantly determined between general rigidity and iron on the potable water and blood and blood organs diseases, and anemia among children population in the majority of rural tacsons (r=0.58 – 0.79); between anemia – content of chlorides and sulfates in the centralized water sources (r = 0.87) (p < 0.05).
