Drinking water (mineral water as we call it) cans have arrived at our apartment complex. A view of this van with water cans from our bedroom window three floors down and on the road.

We drink mostly tap water, but also mineral water.

@Jypyä Pop: Here we have "aqua guard machines" connected to the tap in the kitchen and we get purified water from that :))) Shall post the image of one soon :)

I hope they are made of glass because plastic is harmful to the preservation of nature

@By Marie: These water cans are made of some particular type of plastic which supposed to be safe Marie:)

That's an excellent doc shot. I remember the tap water there was quite salty. Is that still the case?

@grouser: Tap water is tasty grouser but these days everything is prone to pollution and these Mineral Water cans are great demand. We have a filter fitted to our tap..we call them "Aqua Guard " shall post a picture soon.

@Ruthiebear: That sounds great!!! We had wells many years back but now we get water into the apartment tanks and come through taps. It is safer to boil the water or filter ..we have filters.

Sam from Chennai, India

Nice point of view. Yes, sadly we are not able to drink from tap. A fine shot Devi. :)

@Sam: Thank you Sam :) Gone are the days when we used to drink water from the wells or taps!!

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

I hope that is just water, but the different color markings make me fear other compounds. Nice angle.

2 May 2019 11:47pm

@Harry: :)) No purified good water!!!

Irene from San Francisco, United States

Good point of view.
My Mother boiled the water and so do I. They say the water that San Francisco gets isn't bad.

3 May 2019 1:04am

@Irene: we used to boil too. But now we have a filter attached to the kitchen tap which purifies the drinking water:)

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

An excellent shot of this necessity arriving. Do you ever have problems with timely deliveries?

3 May 2019 2:06am

@Steve Rice: Thank you Steve. They deliver on time..but we don't buy these. We have a Filter Machine attached to our kitchen tap and we get good clean purified water. Some of the residents in the apartments buy these.

Nina from Hamburg, Germany
