Hello Lotters, I am a bit upset now because it's been days since we haven't contact our water refiller that has service this household over the years, or more than half the decade. You see in the philippines, water refiller stations are the best way to ensure that drinking water is clean. only a few higher middle class or rich people can afford to have their own water filters in their homes. while people like me living in the middle class can just afford to buy fresh water from refilling stations. I've been asking mom to look into her circle of friends who has water refilling businesses. right now our four water refill jugs are totally empty and been buying large water distilled bottles. any time today i might asked for a few near by stations for a refill..

Water Purifier - It is more comfortable for me having this kind of purifier.
hi LK, I don't buy purified water at the station ever since, when I'm still there in your city. I bought one for me the water purifier itself that you can just transfer the water and purified it. I save more on this because I only pay only one water bill. It is also cheap there are branded one but it is almost the same. It cost only 800 pesos.

I don't have any links to provide LK, you can search on sulit.com but it is more cheap buying on SM. Just try to visit the SM so that you can ask and see them directly.

That is the reason why I invest on my own water filter at home. I already experienced having to wait for the water re-filler services for a couple of hours that I ended up buying mineral water at a nearby store instead, and that was really impractical because I have already allotted certain budget for the water.

Hello ladyhemingway we always do things once a month and we never had problems before. What is impractical now is that their number had been busy for days, I wouldn't entertain them any more if they call me back because what ever problems they have i don't care anymore.

I am lucky actually to live in a town where tap water comes from a good spring. In my previous home it was so chalky that filtering it was not enough to eliminate the limestone taste and I could not drink it. I hope you will have your jugs refilled soon : it is really difficult to live without water.

Hello topffer, you are so lucky to have that kind of situation about these problem. but there is one advantage is that we can have water supply we get to have a water disconnection. indeed, it's even hard for me to drink water when am supposed to. i will call the new refilling station by tomorrow, hopefully they can be a bit more accomodating.

I hope you get the water soon. I live in New york and my tap water is bad so we will be buying a water machine soon. the one with the big blue water bottle on top.

Hello giftsandbags, I never thought we would experience water scarcity in our lives. I have been a customer of theirs for the past five years and this is how we are repaid?! Not to mention they never even called at all! it's unfair and by tomorrow we might call for a new water refiller. so much for their services though

That's really sad, experienced that once when we were still new in our place. We used to have someone deliver our water as well back on our old house, but that company close. Good thing there is a very close water refilling station just across the street so we really had issues with that. But, when we transferred, that was the time we were really finding it hard to look for refilling stations for our house is not in the main road and you really have to walk 300 meters from our house to get to the main road so it's really pretty much far. We had issues with having no water to drink and was only asking our aunt, who lives 2 houses away from ours, with drinking water because they have a well that is screened and approved to be safe from drinking. But we hated the taste so we really have to look for a new refilling station asap! Good thing we saw a refilling station car pass by and then we contracted them to be our official water delivery from now on.

Hi,LK~ Awww,I'm really sorry to hear that. Water is really important. Wish you could get them refilled soon. Here we don't drink from taps. We usually just boil the water from the taps at home. In the dorms,we have small water jugs too. And we have a store in our living community and we can call them whenever the water runs out.So it's kinda convenient(sometimes it takes time for them to deliver to every dorm and we need to wait for a long time). Best wishes~
