In our village the authorities have recently installed a water dispenser. Basically it's a hut with large tanks, pipes and meters inside. One places your container under the spigot and for the princely sum of 5 baht the machine delivers 20 litres of water.
This water is half the price of the potable water delivered by the numerous vans around the district. I dare say many of the money concious locals will use it. Personally I can't be fagged, carrying 2o litres in this heat and will pay the extra 5 baht to have the bottles delivered.
Any other village have this set up?
