ONE OF the children now living in Brisbane wanted to put in a tank for pure ‘off the roof’ drinking water like he had growing up.
Hasn’t that turned into a bureaucratic and expensive mud pool.
Apparently if you live in Brisbane you are not allowed to drink tank water unless it first goes through a special, and expensive, filtration system.
You have to fill in a form, pay a fee and get a plumber’s certificate to have tank water connected to drinking taps. Without that you are banned (yes, banned) from drinking tank water.
My son says he now understands why Brisbane people are different from real Queenslanders — they are drinking their two litres a day and bathing in the highly-chlorinated Brisbane ‘official’ water. No wonder all those Brisbane bureaucrats are brain-damaged from all the chemicals in their system.
There’s nothing like the taste of real tank water. Even a few leaves and possum droppings make it purer than Brisbane chlorinated muck.
