I was told that some stores refill water bottles and resell them. I have so say I didn’t believe this was a common practice. But, just in case, I have been closely monitoring each water bottle I buy.
On Sunday evening (apparently one of the busiest shopping days at Pune Central) I noticed all of the bottles had different water levels in them….hmmm…. I picked each one up and saw the cap and the bottom ring of plastic did not line up as it should. Now I buy my water at the Xerox shop up the street. Their water bottle caps are shrink-wrapped, and the people are very nice.
