[quote=“DKaoshuing”][quote=“backpacker24”]Is there any official response about how safe the water in Taipei is supposed to be now?
Is it at least okay for showering and brushing your teeth??[/quote]
I would say no if your in an area that has the problems now. You also need consider your home’s/building water system and the water storage (tank) on the roof. Some high end buildings/hotels have systems to clean the water, but most places, pump water to the roof to store until use, if this is the case you may have to clean/clear the roof water tank that is going in now as it will be there for later use.[/quote]
Are you doing anything to clean your water in Taipei, post-typhoon? Or have you heard that the system will clean itself out after … when?
I live in downtown Taipei, and the water out of the faucet is a tinge of grey. Do you think it’s safe for bathing and laundry?
