    I’ve always wondered why my tap water in Birmingham is really dirty. And whenever I drink it I get thirstier! I spoke to a few friends about this they all seem to agree. Something fishy going on.

    Let me correct my previous comment. Only the hot water is milky and has some small particles in it. But the cold water is clear and icy cold. But I drink it and still remain thirsty. Back home in Luton the hot water is clear and the cold water quenches my thirst?! Perhaps it’s just me!
