Its about time the Water Authority of Fiji invested in generators to serve as power backup when electricity is down. Especially in Suva. They shouldn't keep relying on FEA because there have been just been too many power cuts. Sorry FEA, but this is the bitter truth.
There is a big difference in homes in the West and the East. Most homes in the West have water tanks - because of water cuts. Most have mosquito screens - protection against insects. Most have hot water systems - for hot baths.
Almost every new home that is built have these things. It could cost a bit more, but in the long run it helps. Especially the mosquito screen - protection against mosquito that carry disease.
And if you are holding a bottle in your hand, you will be doing some marketing while you do your own thing.
How about the Fiji 7s team, can they use Fiji water to quench their thirst and of course the pictures will be televised all over the world.
And remember the slogan - the best water in the world!
