I had the sink faucet water on really low and filled my cup

Customer Question

I had the sink faucet water on really low and filled my cup with the water and drank it. The sink is dirty. I feel a bit sick now after having drank the water. Is it possible the water was contaminated from keeping the cup in the sink for too long while it filled?

Also, how long before the feeling of being sick wears off?

I don't think it is contaminated. It could be from somewhere else. What are your symptoms?
