  1. #1

    Default Tap Water

    I love drinking tap water,I bought a glass fridge jug filled it up and sliced lemon & Lime and popped them in left it in the fridge for 7 hours,then tried a glass it was really nice a zingy zesty taste and refreshing.

    When I was a kid no way I would have drank tap water on its own

    We used to call it Council Pop too lol. Maybe it's a northern saying? I live in Spain and you will know the famous saying " Don't drink the water " It always amuses me when I see all the Brit ex-pats leaving the local supermarket with a trolley full of expensive un-necessary bottled water ( which as we all know is usually tap water anyway ). If the Spaniards can drink it so can we. I lived in the jungle in a small village in the Philippines for some months where the only water supply was a half-pipe that collected rain water and ran down a mountain to a stand pipe. There was a sock over the end of the tap to stop bugs and insects. I did have " the runs " for a while, but after that no problem lol. Tap water in the UK is among the best in the world believe me !!

    id never drink water on its own until i was in my mid twenties.
    but when i drink it i only drink it from the kitchen taps.
    i think it tastes better than drinking it from the bathroom sink.

    I'm sure tap water in European countries is fine now but I do remember a couple of trips to the Balearics in the early 90's when the tap water tasted horrible. I drank bottled water and I could certainly tell if tap water ice cubes made their way into a drink.
