The water supply will be affected from 9am to 5pm due to repairs and maintenance to the Reverse-Osmosis (RO) water-treatment plant located along the road joining Karon and Patong, the PWA explained in its announcement.

The RO plant supplies much of the mains water supply to Karon and large areas at the southern end of Patong.

“Please collect any water you require. It is expected that the water may have some discolouration after the repairs,”the PWA statement said.

Don't call people names when actually patong, karon, kata undergo clowness of water shut down from 9am till 5 pm during highest of high season. We talk about period of 9 days! Probably you not aware of the fact that this moment there are Phuket  hotels with occupancy rate 50%. ( info friends who work these hotels, not TAT info!)
You are blinded excusing by using the word 'only'. Pity.

Good lord. It's maintenance you clown and only from 9am to 5pm. What's the matter with you?

Is Patong the sister city to Flint, Michigan?

Is this a joke? Or kind of negative tourist promotion during the Christmas Days. Something like: Don't come to Phuket Patong, Karon-Kata during Christmas season, we leave you 9 days without day time water supply. Doing this we make clear to you that we not want tourists on Phuket, or at least not care about your presence.
What are the many hotels in Patong, Karon-Kata saying/reacting?
