Water Quality in Dauh Penh today

Post by Doc67 » Fri Jan 10, 2020 11:34 am

The water pressure is low, they are replacing the drains in the street - the foul water drains. So I decided to fill a bucket in case it goes altogether so I can flush the bog.

Stick your head in the hole they dig for fixing the drains. they cut through the water supply pipes. All that luvverly shit bacteria climbing up the open pipes to your taps. yummy
For info water pressure has been low in some areas PP for at least 6 months. My landlord was warned this would be an ongoing issue so he installed a pump to get the water up to the tank.

Don't worry !!, it's probably just a bit of agent orange seeping into the water table, or cyanide from the gold mines !!, nothing to fret about. :shock: :shock: :shock:

I can't even risk washing up in it. Not that there is enough water pressure to get the hot water through the pipes. Showering is a bit dodgy too.

All I need now is for the power cuts to start...
