Minerals are expensive

10,000 litres of drinking water supplied to a house/flat by the Cape Town municipality will cost R16.69, or one sixth of a cent per litre. At Pick ‘n Pay, the price of still mineral water ranges from R2.40 per litre (Nestle Pure Life Still Mineral Water 5L) to R30.65 per litre (Evian Rebirth Mineral Water 750ml).

    Oasis Water revolutionized the way people perceive clean, affordable drinking water. Not only is Oasis Water purified, ozonated and affordable, it is also endorsed by a huge number of medical as well as homeopathic practitioners. Did you know that Oasis Water is available to the public at 80 South African cents per litre? It also has an enormous positive impact on the carbon footprint as it reversed the waste buy cutting back on disposable plastic. Do visit their web page to learn more… (They have more than a 100 outlets in South Africa alone)

      Great sales pitch, free marketing?
      Who are these mystery doctors that recommend water brands?

      I think the 80c per litre was a useful addition to the discussion. (cf 1/6th of a cent for tap water)

    ….and still our tap water is far superior for drinking, et al, than the bottled water. Why SA citizens insist on going the European route when we a blessed with better on our door step, emanates from a cultural identity crises which we suffer from.

    My family and I have lived and worked in many South African towns over the years; these including Cape Town, Somerset West, Worcester, Mossel Bay, Johannesburg and Pietersburg. At no time have we ever experienced any form of malady or health hazards from drinking the municipal tap water. There is, however, talk of health hazards having become a reality in many of our centers in the last ten years. So, maybe it will pay to become one of the cruelly exploited elite, fashion and trend-conscious fraternity, where one may not be able to eat too well but will at least be able to totally disregard water-borne diseases.

    Try comparing the price of the still water sold by Ster Kinekor….. Pick ‘n Pay prices will look cheap.

    We in CPT are privelaged to have good clean water on tap. why would i want to pay for bottled water? and by doing so, i would be adding on to the problem of plastic waste that is caused by the empty bottles. Thank you Cape Town for the best water in the world!
