The thing is, were expected to just keep drinking that shite.

Surely the water ain't like that in the reservoir is it..

They must be messing about with it somewhere.

Possibly mate - I guess it depends on the rock lining the reservoir and, whatever shitty old Victorian pipes are getting the water to your gaff.

Don't tell me sugar cubes as well !!

I for 1 would be deeply concerned if dytkos wasn't offered a pair of garibaldis which would be sharing space with a solid silver english 1890's tea spoon.

Offered on a wedgewood bone china saucer which adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to afternoon tea drinking occasions.

If none of the above the said uncle is a lightweight.fact..

He was working in Saudi, me and my mate used to go down and stay there a few weekends a season to "air" the house. He did have sugar cubes and drove an Austin Allegro Vanden Plas (Google it lol) dogs had to sleep in the van and he was the first person we knew who had a bidet ( you might need to Google that as well) 😁

Had 2000 acres of coursing on the strength of him introducing me and my ex to farmers in the local.

Cheers, D.

When the wife had done the washing up in s.wales the pint glasses and anything else glass.would be shining.sparkly.on the draining rack.

Up here the glass doesent have that shiny sparkle.

So the difference of water can be seen by the eye aswell.

 

Did you try changing the wife.

She must  be reading your posts 😜😜😜 FairPlay. My mother has one of these things under the sink that takes a pouch of balls in the glass globe. It is connected to mains but not until after the drinking tap Ts off because it's not good to drink it.

I have an Ro system on the kitchen sink but its only for my fish tank....it does soften the water but im not sure the output would be enough for day to day household use,plus you have to regularly change the membrane to keep it in optimum condition,plus its a bit bulky and takes up a fair bit of space ......yeah forget that bad idea 😄

Most water actually comes from underground (only about 10% of water comes from reservoirs in the southeast for example) and its filtered through the ground, if it’s come through chalk then it picks up a lot of calcium which is a cause of hard water. So basically different types of water across the country depending on where it came from, it’s all safe to drink but does taste very different depending on where you live!
