Never, the water may be hard but that's about it. This also never happened to us in the Caribbean.

Dead frogs floating in the water spring unit are just to add flavor. They climb in the overflow while tiny and then get bigger. Coffee and tea happen, because if your gonna have to boil the water... why not add a little flavor.

Nope, can't say I've ever dealt with one of those. I actually had to sit and think about it for a minute after reading that title, because I only ever even heard of them from one of my teachers during school, who used to live in a southern state where they apparently had those relatively often.

Wow you learn something new every so often :D.

I had no idea that in developed countries, there'd be like inconsistencies (scary inconsistencies) in like something so basic as tap water.

Wow New Orleans, let's go send FEMA there again...

I don't think I'm going to drink tap water ever. I tried doing that once to save money on bottled water, but now that I've read this... yeah idk, all my tap water's going to be boiled for cooking. Sticking to bottled.

And the reverse osmosis filters are so expensive.

If there's one thing Britain can be proud of, it's the quality of it's tap water. Never heard of it.

And now I wish I didn't google it.

I've never heard of such a warning where I live and I'm in rural South Georgia in a relatively small city. Had no idea this was even a thing outside of disaster events here in the USA.

The source of Legionnaires "outbreak" (if it can be even called that) was not an issue with the drinking water, the city never issued any boil water advisories.. In my opinion the media sensationalized it like they do everything else
