Abstract:  Although a water purification system designed for use in a compounding pharmacy can offer multiple benefits, problems with the purity of the water produced can present hazards to patients and liability for compounders. In this article, the pros, cons, and caveats of using an on-site water purification system are presented in the testimonials of compounders who have installed that equipment or hesitate to do so, and compounders’ questions about in-house systems are answered by water purification experts.
