BxB water add on

Post by hullabaloo » Tue Jun 26, 2018 2:12 pm

Hello ePlayaians,

Have any of you used the Burner Express water add on option? This will be my first year trying it out. What was your experience? Any tips or suggestions?

Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A fellow in our camp came in on the Burner Bus and got the water. He was not impressed with the taste, but the important concern is getting it to where you are camped. Hopefully you can find someone that has a cart to help carry it.

I used it in 2016, the taste and availability was fine, the only problem is what do you carry water in? Collapsible jugs are fragile and solid, gas can type jugs take up as much space empty as full.

I have already paid for 15 gal. I am taking 2 colapisble 5 gal containers. I plan to use 1 and keep refilling it and keep the other as backup. I asked a similar question a few months ago and was told you can keep going back and getting water while the incoming buses are running, Thur I think. I am staying in Hoverlandia and hope the container can be carried a few hundred feet!

You can also supplement your water supply buying ice at Arctica, which can be converted to water through some sort of process I can’t remember.

You have to carry it out to the Man on your back and circle the Man 12 times clockwise. Or is it counter-clockwise?

Either that or you get it blessed by the Water Fairy.

Thanks for the tips, everyone!

And you'll certainly have your selection of Water Fairies to choose from.

You have to fill everything at once upon arrival. Or that is how it was last year.

That is NOT correct. You have to fill the full 5 gallons from each ticket, or forfeit the rest. But you can fill every day up until buses stops coming in, believe that was Thursday last year.

Agree with LoveMachine, in 2016 we could fill up any tim in 5 gallon increments.

Last Year when I bought it the description said I had until Wednesday or Thursday to redeem them. This year however the description says I need to fill them on arrival. Did they change this??????????
