Leamington's Water

The water in Leamington tastes disgusting…always. In the morning it really stinks of chlorine, which makes me wonder how much crap there is in it for them to pump it full of germ killing goodness? But all that chlorine can't be great… though at least it's clear, which makes it phycologically easier to drink

And it creates a sort of scum in mugs around the surface of tea… though I drink it anyway… and it isn't always… though it is mostly… I hope its not too bad for me… is it just our house?

    I think there was something a while ago about a massive amount of fluorine in the water around Leam and the University, but I honestly don't remember much.

  3. Yes! That scum on the tea! I was beginning to wonder whether it was just that my housemates were just really bad at making tea…

  4. Haha, well it's good to know that it isn't just this house with scummy tea, and I hope it isn't poisonous or nowt, cos I always offer tea to guests!

  5. More worryingly, heavily chlorinated water makes you poo…a lot

  8. I can testify that this girl's cups of tea are delicious! However, I have said for aaaaages that the water in Leamington is awful and I am soooo pleeeeased that you agree. I think we should move back to Gateshead which has some of the best 'council pop' (do you call water that?) in the country/world! I'm sure it comes from the same place that this french company bottles and sells as mineral water!

  9. Crewe's tap water, or council pop, tastes quite nice…though in a lecture in Geography we were told it comes from the llangollen canal… So I don't know why it tasted so nice.

  10. Yeah, last year drinking a glass of Adam's finest nearly made me retch when were still in North Leam last year. It really was repulsive.
