          Should I be careful drinking the water? I am not planning on drinking out of the tap, but should I be careful getting shower water in my mouth?

          Answer
          Response from Ms123456 | Reviewed this property |
          Sure, better safe than sorry. Don't drink the tap water and use bottled water to brush your teeth. The ice and water at the restaurants is fine.
