    And now we can’t use the tap water for 5 days due to an ‘outage’ (I’m assuming this) causing the chlorine levels to drop below minimum standards. Thanks UGI. Do I get to deduct the cost of the bottled water from my bill? Maybe you and Aqua PA should split the cost because they should have had a backup power source.
