Auckland water quality
« on: August 18, 2009, 08:41:42 am »
Hi Everyone

Quick question. Does anyone else find the Auckland water quality a bit weird?

We stay in Mairangi Bay and it seems to have a chlorine smell and is very hard. It is drying out our skin alot unlike Cape Towns water.

I'm in Howick, Auckland and can't say I've noticed any smell at all and I drink only tap water, no filters etc.
My skin is always dry so that hasn't changed at all.
