Hi Jenell. The tap water is not good for drinking it is salty as it is sea water which is treated. Bottled drinking water is used for consumption by most of the people. A 20 ltr bottle is delivered at your door step at 2.5 odd USD. Go through the enclosed link u will get a better idea.

Thnx a lot dear !! I am quite looking forward to go thru d link n get my prob resolved :) thnx a ton again
