Refill NONpotable water

Post by yellowdog » Thu Jul 29, 2004 10:18 pm

I'm trying to find out if it's possible to arrange a refill of our 65-100gal tank with nonpotable water while on the Playa. Last year we got one refill from one of the water trucks spraying the streets by providing gifts to the driver but it was more luck than anything. This year we have plans for a bigger & better camp with a misting system and swamp coolers. This, of course, which takes more water. I'm hoping we can arrange for the trucks that dump RVs and provide them with nonpotable water to help us out. Supposedly this can be aquired at the vendor's booth at Playa Info. Has anyone done this before and does anyone know the cost for just water delivery & and not an unloading of offal?

we bought water last year for our RV...it was actually pretty costly for non-potable water. I believe it was 2 bucks a gallon.

There is no vending on the playa!

Oh, except ice.

And coffee.

I think I saw a pepsi machine, too.

Okay -- as you say, of course you can have the turds sucked out of your RV. You sign up in Center Camp.

Do not ask the turd burglar for non-potable water.

Do not run behind the turd burglar.

Turd burglar has no water that you want. Turd burglar burgles turds.

Non-potable water is not to be drunk.

Non-potable water is not to be mist.

Non-potable water is not to be swum.

Non-potable water truck drivers will be breaking the law if they sell or give you non-potable water to be drunk, mist, or swum. You will be breaking the law if you use it.

Any questions should be answered by searching on "Dump RVs" at the main website.
