Drinking water

Having drinking water delivered in 20 litre plastic bottles is very convenient but they are not a very attractive addition to the kitchen, especially perched on top of a water cooler.  Bodrumites used to keep their water in testi, large unglazed amphora style pots which would sit outside the kitchen door. Being unglazed, the surface of the pot would be damp and the constant evaporation outside would keep the water inside cooler than the ambient temperature. I am assured by those of a more scientific mind than me, that this is the basic theory of refrigeration.
