There are 2 water systems on the Island. "Main water" is supplied by local authorities and is used for the houses in towns and villages. "Natural water" is also used in country areas in the houses and on the land. Tourists are advised to buy bottled water.

And here's a very good tip: Cold water (drink) out of the fridge might seem refreshing and will cool you down, but it is important to realise, that it can have the opposite effect. Your body becomes cooler where the water reaches and its automatic reaction is to compensate for this by trying to warm your body up!

Natural water
There is a network of pipes, gullies and tanks on the island which brings the natural 'spring' water from the higher altitudes to farms, towns and villages on the lower parts of the island. The quality of the water is excellent, but the quality of pipes and tanks may not always be so good.

The water here is safe to use for washing food and cleaning your teeth and so on but bad stomachs do tend to be a problem here, although I strongly believe that's linked to the low price of alcohol. Drink bottled water. Ice cubes in bars and restaurants are made from bottled water too, so are safe to consume.

Tap water
The quality of the tap water varies from area to area. Water ( in a few towns (areas) ) can be drunk from the tap, but to be sure, check by the authorities. The quality of the water in the towns can vary from week to week. The usual chemicals are added.

Bottled water - still

Agua sin gas: There are several companies on the island that bottle the spring water and distribute it to shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. It comes in plastic containers or glass bottles varying from 100 ml to 8 litres. Always take a bottle with you if you go walking or driving.

Bottled water - aerated

Agua con gas: This is the same as the "still water" but with bubbles added.

A very big part of the drinking water on this Island,
originates in
Aqua's de Firgas.

A company, which are doing much for the water
is
AquaLyng
