Toilet Bowls and Swimming Pools
The water in Centreville has a lot of chlorine in it. So much that after drinking Akron water for 18 years and Pittsburgh water for 10½ years, I had to buy a water filter to get rid of the chlorinated taste -- it was like drinking out of a pool.
This morning I realized that I haven't scrubbed out the toilet since I moved in. I couldn't actually, since my old toilet brush was "retired" when I left Pittsburgh and I haven't bought a new one (that old one was getting... oh, what's the word... nasty). Now, in Pittsburgh, if you left the toilet for a week or two you started getting mold growing in the bowl. Kinda gross, really. But here I've gone a little more than a month with no problems. The water's actually been sterilized.
I'm tempted to see how long it can go.
