How Do You Get Your Water? :p
put a filter on your tap at home?
refills at the market?
other type of water filter?
I feel burdened with driving to the market to get about 40 individual gallon jugs of water per month - seems to be a daily thing - always having to drop everything to go get water and at a dollar a piece ... well that's quite bill... and worse -there is no place to recycle these plastic jugs - I've search my city high and low til I gave up .... so there has to be a better way!
Can anyone recommend a great water distilling gadget or appliance that will save time and money... deliver clean water at about 1 to 2 gallons per day... there are so many on the market I just have no idea...
all I know is that I'm just about thru with mountains of plastic jugs :rolleyes:

p.s. - I think it should be a law that you have to recycle stuff... (like plastic water jugs!!! :D ) ... just my opinion :D

I can only tell you what I used to do, since now I have my own well water ....
I put a filter on my faucet in the kitchen, plus I had those 5 gallon reusable jugs, that I went and filled up once in a while at a water place. But you can also fill them up at grocery stores in those machines they have out front. ;)

There's a lot of controversy about using distilled water as water naturally contains minerals and distilling eliminates then from the water ~ which I think is part of the reason we drink water.
So, from my understanding, drinking distilled water will leach minerals from the body and send it out the other end.
Here's a suggestion ~ google "distilled" water and if you still wish to get a distiller Waterwise http://www.waterwise.com/ has good choices. Personally, I think the reverse osmosis is healthier. Yet you didn't ask that, did you? :D

My store offers Mr. Water Reverse Osmosis drinking water. To buy the first gallon jug it's 78 cents, to refill them is 58 cents a peice. Look around for a place that offers this.

BTW... if I use any from the tap I have a filter on my tap and then I run that through a pitcher filtering system. I filter twice in other words before I use it. But I prefer for straight drinking reverse osmosis water.

I've manifested a home with an artesian well, they don't even use chlorine, it is so pure.
So, unfortunately I don't have this water issue, and I drink about 1 gallon or more a day.
But I do know that you can buy some water gadgets from Nikken, the magnet people they have several different types of gadgets, filters, ionizers, magnets etc for water, you might find a distributor (they are multi level, so I'm sure that won't be a problem) in your area, and ask them the difference in all their water gadgets.
I also have two water bottles from Nikken, that have this filter thing in them, so you can take poluted mud puddle water, and drink it immediately and it will be good.
I don't know how it works, but it removes all the yuck in foreign countries water, I know this works, as I know someone who went to Nicaragua, and drank water out of a puddle, and it went in the bottle almost black, and ick, and came out the other end clean and clear, and he didn't get sick the whole time he was there.

We put a reverse osmosis filter under our kitchen sink for our water. You can get them at Lowe's for around $300 and have it installed.

I was having water delivered to me- a brand called Culligan- which I am no longer doing since I switched to Fiji water after reading the book 'Water and Salt'. I highly recommend this book by the way!
Fiji does deliver, but it's cheaper for me to go to Trader Joes and buy it by the case there. I get about 4 cases at a time which last 3 to 4 weeks. It's a pain, but worth it.
I also have a regular Pur filter on my faucet at home. I use this water for soaking nuts and making tea etc, etc.

VV- I thought that water was carbonated? Am I wrong?
05-19-2005, 02:49 AM
I was very surprised to find recent information on carbonation that's contrary to what has been accepted knowledge in health circles. Below is a link from Dr. Andrew Weil's website in which he explains that carbonation is not harmful as was previously thought.
Interesting. Guess it shows that we shouldn't get real attached to research study results because they just might change down the road. :eek:

It is LIGHTLY carbonted ,but it supposedly supports for my "bloodtype" (o)-not that it determines my diet, and it doesnt make me feel bad ......europeans are heavy users of carbonted water and are pretty healthy....
