    Default 30% of bottled water is not safe?

    According to this article, a study was done claiming 30% of the bottled water in DR is unsafe to drink. We only buy Planeta Azul or Cristal, and we run it through a Brita filter for drinking (not for cooking though). Anyone else? Thoughts?

    Probably because they leave those 5 gallon bottles out in the SUN, and I doubt they ROTATE the inventory at the stores ... if you removed those 2 problems the water would probably be just fine 99% of the time .

    Too bad they didn't mention the brands.

    Agreed, it’s surprising to me, because Dominicans aren’t lawsuit crazy.

    After Tropical Paul tested SD tap water and found it safe, maybe we’re better off drinking that?

    One would think the gubmint has an obligation to name names, or at least announce legal violations.

    If true, I'd be sick 30% of the time. I'm not.

    That's why I only drink Evian here, more expensive but I figure if I can pay 150 for a small Presidente then healthy water is a good investment.

    I remember the same story two or three years ago. Then as now, no companies were named and no steps announced to ensure an improvement in the situation. Obviously, not much has changed.
