      I’m in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, do you know of any spring water sources around my province? Thanking you!

  4. Terry says:

    surely the water tests differ from season to season? apparently a test was done on this water (Spring Way) after some weeks in a glass carrier, worrying bacteria was found. is there a way to find out results of tests – at least on a month to month basis?
