‘Hot water’? in Civic? bubblers a bottled water plot?

By Shinigami_Josh 6 January 2012 22

While i am currently away from our “beloved” city. Social networking keeps telling me that

“They’ve heated the tap and fountain water at civic center in order to bolster sales of bottle water. ”

In reference to both DFO and Canberra centre, from my understanding its been quite hot so hot water in the pipes makes sense due to the ambient conditions, not some huge shadowy plot to make us buy bottled water but just due to it being summer.

Is there anything serious behind this, or are my friends nuts?

What’s Your opinion?

The water in my kitchen tap has been warmer too. DAMN IT!!! they’ve gotten to me too.


Come to think of it the air in my house is also warmer…perhaps it’s Jeff Manny trying to sell more aircons.

LOL love it!

Also reminds me about UK taps
like in

They have one for hot and one for cold, so in winter one is freezing and one is boiling and nothing in between!

Used to see that in houses here too.
