You can drink straight from pits and other lakes, but you cant drink straight from the waterpumps or wells found in town. Might be like this for a reason but it's strange you can drink from pits and lakes and not pumps/wells.

I could actually drink from a pump well, but not from a regular well (without pump).
Not sure if it takes effect in the thirsty(as it was always flashing as needing a drink). But the animation did work.
Was able to drink, but like the water well without the pump, it doesn't really do anything besides stating you have drank.
Was able to refill my container though, but didn't drink straight away had some water purification. I'm not sure if it's safe yet to drink from the pumps.
I have managed to drink directly from a water pump with no container previously (sorry cant remember which town / farm) though NOT the one in Elektro which I discovered last night.
The water pump in Elektro displays the 'Drink' option in the scroll menu when approached but does not work when clicked. No water is taken and the "you have taken water from the pond" message does not appear on screen.
I have tried this action with my characters hands free and hands in use
