Could you imagine it if every tom dick and harry started knocking on your door at home for a glass of water! lol

Yeah proper cray cray, but that's what I was told. - if you're dying of dehydration on a London street, it does seem reasonable that you could ask a homeowner for a glass of the finest and cleanest water from their tap.

Section 136 of the Licensing Act 2003, to put it in a nutshell, if they serve alcohol, they have to provide FREE drinking water.

Does anyone know if you have to be a paying customer?


No you don't. When I used to deal with Licensing Applications in the 80's the Justices would automatically refuse a licence if the publican didn't say they would serve water free to anyone who asked for it. The madatory reqirement toprovide free tap water still applies.

Isn't it law that you can ask anyone, at their house or business, and they HAVE to give you tap water?

Not quite right, it an offence for alcohol retailers to turn down customers who ask for a glass of tap water free of charge. Could you imagine it if every tom dick and harry started knocking on your door at home for a glass of water! lol

Tap water is not free, to answer some of the idiotic comments at the beginning of this Post.

It costs us as a society for the Chlorine, pumping stations, personnel involved in getting it to you by mains which need repairing by a gang of workers every time it blows up and floods the High Street, and so on...

Which is why some of us tax payers cough up £500 a year water rates to the water-in-****-out distribution network provider, commonly called a water board.

The water would be free if these businesses that agreed to supply it to you freely agree to pay THEIR water rates and cost of repairing problems with their taps, etc, instead of charging you negative freeloaders for the costs involved.

Any parent of children that start whining on about being thirsty would welcome the chance to get water by just asking, instead of having to go into an establishment, only to be told "you have to buy something first".

Assuming the parents had water bottles with them.

Or the ubiquitous Coke, Dr Pepper, Pepsi, 7up, (you get the picture) empty bottle...

Assuming they do not want to fork out £1 a time for Coke's carbon dioxide laced weak phosphoric acid solution in its various disguises. Not everyone is rich enough to waste on buying bottled soft drinks all the time.

Thanks for the later comments from people who have at least thought about this being possibly useful to some, even if not themselves.

One thing I do agree on though, £12 for even a stainless steel 350 ml container is a bit steep. In fact effing vertical as some wag said on a program that my aging brain refuses to recall.
Yes, it is a good idea but just wondering how many members of staff will actually know about this - some that don't might think that you're taking the mickey! Perhaps the ones that do will actually try to get you to buy something to eat at the same time.
I think it's a good concept, I'm suprised it has only just been thought of now. Certainly if it caught on and places like theme parks and attractions joined in it would make companies price soft drinks/tea coffee more reasonably. I would love to see this network grow around the uk and see free taps on the streets.
heat added but not too much, no-one wants room temp water.
I for one think this is an amazing idea. People who buy bottle water do little more than kill the planet. £12 for a bottle... You do realise these are stainless steal with a special cap for their flavour tablets or to keep money in etc?

I do agree there could be more places outside London but this is a fairly new concept. It will grow. All in all you can use your own bottle so it's basically a free drink of water if your near one of these places? How can this not be hot? It's free with NPN!

Personally I think I'll be buying one of the 1L bottles and the tablets as I'm trying to come down on how much fizzy pop I drink.
