Motel water yuck

I got this nice little surprise a few days ago. The water tends to drain slowly in the tub so I got a good long look at the grossness. No wonder the water was tasting bad sometimes. The Brita filter pitcher was a very welcome addition to the fridge.

Nasty Motel Water

This was the day after a heavy rain, so I’m wondering if silt was in the water. It’s not a comforting thought. The water always has a strong smell of chlorine, so any living creatures weren’t likely to survive. At the same time, drinking dirt isn’t on my list of favorite things. Since then the water has been clear, but I’m still glad to have the filter. It gets rid of the chlorine taste which means I drink a lot more water.
