The Things I See...

The color of the water coming out of my tap!



I could pretend it is pineapple juice!


Thankfully, it looks a little better after going through the filter.



 And just to gross you all out, here is the way it looks in the toilet! 
At least it matches my liquid hand soap!

LOL! Is it really the water that comes in like that, or are the pipes in your house really rusty and they are coloring it brown, like that?
Anyhow, it sure is gross! I bet you drink nothing but bottled water.

the first glass full looks like it came out of the toilet :-)
GOOD that you have a great filter!! I lived in Europe and had some wild stuff we all get from living abroad but not THIS !! Buena Suerte!

My well water (straight from Mother Nature) in the good old USA looked even more orange than yours when we first bought our new house: iron.

It stank too: sulfur.

Water had passed inspection: no bacteria, so go ahead and drink it...

After a series of various kinds of aerators and filters it came out looking clean. However, who knows what all is in the water now to make it look like that, so: I'm buying water to drink.

As I read your story, we've just had the plumber over to see why suddenly we had NO water at all. Seems the water table is low and the well is empty. Will fill slowly.

Furtunately, a rain storm is on the way.

Did I say I live in the US at the moment? We've had more luck with water in other parts of the world...

I do hope your water is safe to drink -- it looks toxic!

Oh man!!! Do you think it will always be that way, or is it just because of high or low water or something??? Good luck! We have to boil with bleach for 20 min. and then use a filter too! But it looks OK, we just know it isn't!
