Mercy, you are wrong, I am NOT a TA. I have no affiliations with any TA or resort. I have simply created a site that has loads of information that has proven useful to over 560+ people. It is a very active site.

If you don't wish to visit the site, don't!

My wife, daughter and I rented a villa on Eleuthera, and our water was pumped up from a cistern in the crawl space. Rain water from the roof was diverted into it. Didn't taste bad at all. Has any one heard of this method in the Bahamas, or elsewhere? It was a large storage cistern under the crawl space, and when a good downpour hits, it fills up real quick. Robert

That is a common method of water collection in the Caibbean. I live in St. Maarten and although we now have government supplied desalinated water piped in, we also have a cistern and we collect rain water and pipe that in. we prefer to use the cistern water when we have enough rain because it is fresher water and does not have a brackish taste like the desalinated water tends to have sometimes.Many of the islands like us either do not have a large enough fresh water supply or do not have desalinated water, so all houses are built with cisterns somewhere.
