My local water board is Anglian Water, I think their water is disgusting, when I run my hot water to wash the pots or get bathed, it is white, you can actually see the limescale floating around.
I have to use an electric kettle with a filter in the spout to prevent the limescale going into my tea. This prevents it going into the tea, but it collects in the bottom of the kettle, there is so much I have to rinse it all out every day, and as for drinking cold water I haven't drank cold water out of the tap since I've lived here, which is almost four years.
When I moved in here the council told us we could not use hose pipes, unless we had a water meter fitted, but I declined as we had a water meter at our previous house and the cost was double what I pay now.
Despite this ban my neighbours haven't got meters, yet continue to use their hose pipes all summer.
One next doo neighbour sneaks out really late at night when its dark and nobody can see him, and waters all his garden, another one washes his car using his hose pipe, but won't do it in the week when people are about, he waits until early Sunday morning when most people are lying in bed, and he goes out and washes it.
I've used mine about once or twice, but I won't flaunt it like my next door neighbours do.
On the whole I think that the cost of water is good value for money, I pay four pounds thirty pence a week, which is good, but for the amount of limescale.
I used to live in Manchester and there the water was crystal clear and it was nice to drink. I done see why you should drink bottled water, when you are paying for drinkable water.
