    Drinking water

    Advertisements



    Is the tap water on the island safe to drink? If not, do Brita filters work well or do they get clogged too quickly? Thanks

    I had asked about this during my interview. I think they said brita was fine, but they did say bottle water was cheap. I wouldn't try straight up tap, if you aren't from the region you might undergo some unnecessary bowel movements.

    Island water coolers. You rent the "cooler" for like 10 EC a month and it's 10 EC for a big 5 gallon bottle of water delivered. Not bad IMO.

    Well enough? Sure i guess. I had one on my kitchen sink for cooking, but used the IWC water for drinking. Tasted MUCH better than the brita water.
