Remember the watersaga? About the waterpump, the septic tank and even about the broken pipe in the kitchen while my mother was here.
They came to measure the kitchen so they could fit a new one soon. The pipe was fixed and then last week they came to get water to get it tested. The results would be back in about 7 working days. So, I was quite surprised when I talked to the landlady on Friday and she told me (quite urgently) not to drink any unboilt water! Since the lab had gotten back to them (only a few days!) and told them they already saw way too many bacteria that shouldn't be there!
The landlady even told me it might be wise not even showering! Because of the wound and all! Great. I don't know what the lab had said about that, but she was most adament.
In other news (well, same subject really), the toilet is playing up. The water keeps coming and coming and coming. The only way to stop it is to turn off the pump, which in turn means no water at all. Mind you, I'm not allowed to drink the stuff anyway, but having to go down to switch the pump off and on everytime I need the loo....
Ah well, soon I will be connected to the communal water supply, the septic tank will be sorted and I will have a new kitchen.
Life is great in the country!
