Brown Water

There was no water supply late last night. Usually we'll get dirty water once the supply is back. When I bathed CE this morning, the water was brown in colour. :-|

~ CE bathed with this ~

The colour was like the above after throwing away almost 10 pails of water. So can you imagine the colour of the earlier batch? Ewww... Anyway, I still bathed him but washed his face with "cleaner" water from the basin tap.

I really don't know how come the water in the second shower room is so dirty. The water from the master bathroom and taps downstairs is just a little cloudy (even with a filter outside the house). Good thing I have another filter in the kitchen. Sigh... we have to pay for this kind of water. Maybe we should dig our own well. hahaha

LittleLamb said...

maybe water tank dirty?

Irene said...

SIGH

Angeline said...

oh my! The pipes!!!!

Cynthia said...

I had this as well earlier when the water supply in my area was disconnected for a day! and normally, we will switch off the main pipe also, coz if there is any maintenance work, the dirty stuff will counter-flow balik into our pipe and make the water very dirty...

michelle said...

Time to install a filter. Usually I use the brown water to water plant.

Mummy Moon said...

Aiyo so dirty. My place also dont have clean water even though water supply is OK.

Merryn said...

n to think ppl in other country can drink water straight from the tap! we better, we get instant kopi-O or tea from our tap! beat that ppl! :D

Mummy Gwen said...

Got filter still dirty ah. Upstairs water is from the tangki is it?

coffeesncookies said...

You should really invest in a master filter. Msian water is really bad, even for bathing, it's bad for eczema and sensitive skin

BabyBooned said...

yes my sentiments exactly!! back in melbourne we can drink water out of the tap. if the water is dirty u'll hear about it for months in the news and ppl will tunjuk perasaan, i tell u. over here... bleahhhh. we clean our filters veryy often and still the water is like kopi-oh everytime. yukk.. can u imagine what its like for ppl who cant afford the filters??

wen said...

Cath J said...

Sasha said...

Cheffie-Mom said...

Whoa! I hope your water is back to normal.

Everyday Healy said...

In this case, I would think may be not only the problem of the water, may be the filter is not as good as the way it advertise too. Hahaha......

Hazel said...

that's why many own a filter at home

Big headache when there is disruption to water supply.

Mummy In Vain said...

maybe u need a plumber for help? it looks extremely dirty wor after 10 pails of pouring still look yellowish...

NomadicMom said...

Are you sure water from your well will be cleaner???
Maybe your water tank is dirty?

Oliveoylz said...

CE didn't fuss bathing in that diluted milo water? Hope all's back to normal now.

slavemom said...

Ah boy no longer bathe in brown water after that. :) Phew...

Rachel, I think so too. The weird thing is, both bathrooms upstairs share the same heater tank. But how come the water in the master bathroom not that brown? *scratch head*

Cynthia, does switching off the mains work? So u dun get any dirty water after the supply's back?

Mich & coffeescookies, we do hv a master filter outside the hse.

Mummy Gwen, yeah, it's from the heater tank. But really dunno how it works one loh.

Jacelyn, this is normal after water disruption. Jes that this time, it takes longer to clear the dirty water.

Olive, he doesn't really care. hehehe

Dora said...

Yeah I hate no water supply as it causes a lot of messiness... "brown color water" is one of that, makes the filter so dirty!

MeRy said...

The colour of water looks like tea.....

Health Freak Mommy said...

Maybe caused by the dirty water tank or the rusty water pipes in your house? You can actually hire someone to come and wash your water tank.

Serene said...

Same thing happens here.. water was brown in color after the supply is backed. So normally if this case happened, we will go to bath at my parent's place, luckily they just staying near by lah.

andrewjune said...

i thought you're preparing some "special bath" for CE hahaha for his rashes back then...
ummm, lucky thing you've got a filter!

jacss said...

Alicia said...

terrible ya but im not surprise :p

slavemom said...

Shireen, oh, there's such service? Maybe we shld consider it.

Jac, lazy lah to move him to another rm. Moreover, the shower head in the master rm is hi up on the wall. The 2nd bathroom is the pipe type. I dunno how to bathe him w/o the pipe. :p
