to drink water from the bathroom tap?
Or do I have to go to the kitchen?x
My mum always said never drink from the bathroom tap as it's not the same. How can that be? Surely water is water no matter what tap it's from? Please, won't someone answer this and put me out of my misery?!
have "grey" water but normal water in the kitchen. Old houses do not have this.
THIS IS NOT A FACT.
is grey water?
five times today and it's not even 10am:
It appears I was wrong. Usual copouts apply.
unless they’ve been built by very eco-conscious developers and you live in an eco-village or something. Grey water is water that has been used for things like washing up or clothes washing, or has come from the rainwater pipes that is then filtered and used to flush the toilets (as we purify the water in toilets to drinking water standard, which is a bit of a waste). You will not get grey water coming out of the taps.
as the toilet. Or something.
I was always warned not to drink water form the bathroom but never knew why until today!
That's a Vittel bit of info.
Dead pigeons floating in tanks and stuff.
This makes loads of sense. Thanks.
I was told not to drink it because it might have dead spiders or something in it. I do think that the bathroom water tastes nicer than the kitchen water though.
If you have an older system (Boiler in the kitchen, insulated hot water tank in the airing cupboard, cold water header tank in the loft), you shouldn’t drink water from the bathroom tap, as it’s likely that only the kitchen tap comes directly off of the mains, and the rest of the water will be fed from the loft.
If you have a newer system (combi-boiler in the kitchen, no hot water tank, no cold water header tank in the loft), then it’ll be okay to drink the cold water in the bathroom. UNLESS you have a water softener, in which case, again, the kitchen tap is likely to be the only one fed directly off of the mains supply.
In all cases, you shouldn’t drink water out of the hot taps.
It was ok.
