No running water is worst day
February 14, 2018 2:06am CST
I felt so immovable yesterday when I found out that there was no running water yesterday afternoon. The bill was supposed to have an announcement when they're planning to clean their TANKS! but there was none and caught me by surprise! It was fortunate it went back after six in the evening. Good thing we have a drum as a back up. Buckets tends to last short.

Oh my goodness! I can totally relate to this. It happened not in the Philippines but in one city in Ecuador. We had almost 2 weeks without running water so we had to keep on buying the large container full of mineral water for $1.50! It's crazy! Nevertheless, the experience made me realized the value of having clean running water.
Hello @galileo2008 the worst I think was typhoon ondoy were we had weeks with out water that we had to get with the help of neighbor some water from another water refilling station. Maybe I'm thinking of reviving our water pump.
@Letranknight2015 Yes, I heard about it and I couldn't imagine myself being trapped in the same situation. My sister was there in Manila, too, and she experienced not having clean water to drink and the worst part is that their apartment was flooded. Too much water, yet not good for drinking.

@Letranknight2015 Change water? My friend we use the water. If we are lucky we can refill in three weeks or if we miss it we can refill in 6 weeks. Nope! that's still not enough tanks. We get water in the lines for 1 day and 1 night and we still have to use a pump to pump it. No, we don't have a water shortage here!
