Default Water poll...what type do you drink?

I would like to know what type of water you drink? I have been drinking RO water for a few years, recently I started adding minerals to it, didn't for a couple of years,...maybe part of the reason I started feeling like crap?...maybe it's just I am getting older though?

I just use a Pur filter on my faucets, and drink filtered tap. I did drink reverse osmosis water at my work for a few years, but as you said, everything was removed, including minerals. I fill my water bottle with my water from home when I go to the gym, or on long walks. I also use the Pur filter in my camper for camping trips.

I'm having company over next week, and they are BIG bottled water drinkers. I shopped at Costco today to get a case of water. Their cheapest Kirkland brand said it was purified, RO drinking water with minerals added. I decided to go with the Arrowhead brand, since it 'claimed' to be spring water, and was a brand name.

I use a Doulton counter top water filter attached to my kitchen faucet for all water needs except for
dish washing. I changed the filter in July ...it will be good for a year or more.
New filter cost is $90.00 I think.
I live alone. When i go somewhere I refill a plastic water bottle from my faucet. I have NEVER bought
water except for a few distilled gallon jugs once in a great while.

Our drinking water I buy in a cask, it is mineral spring water, in 10 litre casks.
I wouldn't drink the tap water here, you can smell the chlorine in it without tasting it.

What about the water ionizers? do they produce better water for your body?

How about ozonated water, is it any better? Is there any science behind the claims that they are better than just filtered water?

Mountain Valley Spring Water can be delivered to your home. It is the only company I've found that will provide the water in glass containers. Apparently Madonna drinks this water and it's used in the White House. Fancy that. The price is a bit to swallow though at @ $20.00 per 5 gallon. I also use reverse osmosis with either colloidal minerals added or a touch of sea salt.

The minerals I'm using is called Vitality Boost.

The RO water will remove most of the minerals along with the garbage in the water and because it's the minerals that give water a high ph, RO water has an acidic ph, my tap water starts out around 7.6 ph or so and ends up around 6 ph, I have been searching for a good way to restore the minerals/ph and the mineral drops help but I have come across several of these in line filters to help restore a alkaline ph....would this be as good as the drops...or better as these filters are supposed to raise the ORP value.

I like drinking the cheapest water I can find. I try to drink between 80-120oz of water a day. So if i didn't drink cheap water I would be broke.

Tap water is horrible and nobody should drink it, not even pets. The amount of chlorine in the water depends on how far away you live from a "treatment" plant. The closer you live, the more concentrated the chlorine.

The mentality behind chlorinating drinking water is in order to purify water, you must first poison it. The chlorine must be strong enough to kill bugs at the outermost distance from the treatment plant. Therefore, if you live close to the plant you are getting a double dose of chlorine, which really isn't chlorine at all... its more like toxic substances that are byproducts of aluminum smelting.

Keep this in mind since the water you drink ends up in every cell in the body.

Pinballdoctor, what is your solution to drinking the best water possible?

There's a free webinar on good water choices: https://www.kacperpostawski.com/webinars/water/

The ideal drinking water would be mountain spring water, free of fluoride, chlorine, and other toxins, but would contain all 60 minerals that are necessary for the body to function properly.

Since that water is only available in dreamland, the next best choice is reverse osmosis water. This water should have less than 5 parts per million total dissolved particles, and since the minerals have been removed, minerals must be added to get the full benefit from the water.

You can add unprocessed natural high mineral sea salt, or colloidal minerals, or both. The more minerals you get, the better your health, since vitamins won't function without mineral cofactors.

As far as the webinar goes, I did watch it and from what I've seen, it looks to be the next generation water purifier. I also like how it can rid the body (and teeth) of excess calcium, which is a huge health benefit.

I will be keeping an eye on this Black Mica extract, currently known as Adya Clarity.

Yes, it is hard to not believe when you see it working right before your eyes, however, I still want to see more testing done.

The most important aspect of this black mica is that it has the ability to chelate heavy metals from the body, especially mercury.

It is quite expensive at $150 per 32 ounce bottle, but like sodium chlorite, only a few drops are used at a time, so it will last a long time. At about $5 per ounce, it is in the same price range as MMS. ($20 per 4 oz bottle)

Do you believe it could harm you in any way taking it internally, drinking the water?

I find it hard to believe it will keep a hot tub's water clean/clear for...what did they say, like 8 months if it keeps it clear/clean for half that it would be such a huge help, no chlorine type products to add...wow

I doubt there has been any long term studies done on this product, but I also doubt taking several minerals (which is what black mica is) will harm the body.

Most people are deficient in minerals, especially magnesium, while taking excess calcium because that is what mainstream medicine says you need for teeth and bones. This product removes excess calcium, thus creating a balance.
