Say what? Pump it up. Drink it down.

The island has no rivers, streams or reservoirs so all the drinkable water here comes from rain. Bermudan roofs are painted with a limestone wash that purifies the water as it trickles down into underground tanks. Electric pumps send the water up to the tap to drink. It’s got a bit of a chemical taste to it, too. Better stick to rum.
