Other People’s Experiences – Ray & Jen

We had great pleasure in meeting with Ray and Jen recently… and they have kindly agreed to share their experiences with you on here. Ray & Jen moved to Playa Blanca this summer, and have set up a new business selling water filters in Lanzarote. These water filters enable you to drink the local tap water here – so no more lugging huge heavy bottles of water back from the supermarket. We’ve tasted the water, and it’s great! As if you would need any more reasons to speak to Ray & Jen… the price of these water filter systems is extremely reasonable. Had we not already sorted our own system out, before they arrived – we would have been buying one of these ourselves! Happy reading!
