Hfly, all I'm saying is that you are wrong to imply water will be uplifted where it's not safe to do so and simultaneously that aircraft will deliberately depart with too little water in order to save money.

The potable water banned list has a reason listed for each banned airport and it's not about cost - the water, the bowser fill point and the bowser itself must all be regularly tested, certified and documented, processes correctly followed and recorded, and facilities for potable water and waste must be adequately separated. If an airport ends up on the banned list it stays there for six months until audited again. If the water and the arrangements at the outstation are deemed safe then the crew can request water if required.

Personally I'm happy to consume water from a brewer or galley tap. You shouldn't drink water from a toilet tap, however.
