      The broken ancient cracked pipes that all the water flows through to get to every ones houses and hotel should be the first problem to fix. Why should we keep buying bottled water?????

      The people should come first. Other people should speak up about this. Replace the cracked ancient pipes that all the water flows through to reach every hotel and every ones homes in Malta. It doesn’t matter how new your homes are. The same water flows through these pipes to reach every one. Why should we buy bottled water??? Why hasn’t this been taken care of??? Shame!!!
