We have had a lot of rain over the last few days which i think is unusual for this time of year, i personally like the rain as it keeps things nice and cool so we don't need A/C. The downside though is that it has an effect on our water supply, yesterday what came out of the tap was like watery sand or just water with sand in it which meant i had to unclog the shower head about every 30 sec, i quickly gave up on that and just finished my shower without the head on, not the same but still got the job done. Since we came here i have always brushed my teeth using the tap water but i never swallow any of it, after seeing what comes out of the tap maybe i should be a bit wary of doing this. I know a lot of the local people drink this water, i have seen building workers drinking from the end of the hose they use for mixing cement. Has any members of the forum heard of anybody catching any diseases / illness from drinking this water ?
