    Tap water IS dirty, I dont even feel its safe! I dont get into bottled water either. Collect from a spring! Tap water is energetically polluted. The womon narrating the video could just as readily be a mouth piece for the water authorities. I def dont buy into the concept that tap water is okay, its not. Well its not my choice anyway.

    I agree with what is being said and want to add another thought. People are constantly drinking bottled water and often times not finishing it, putting the lid back on it and throwing it away. The same goes for fast food cups with lids being discarded into plastic bags then tied up and thrown in the landfills. How much water are we trapping that can no longer be used. Water is getting to be a very limited resource where we live and in many other places. I wish more attention would be drawn to this issue.

    Distilled water is the solution. It is the only pure water where the water is pulled out of the mix, and the rest, along with impurities is left behind. All other water cleaning/filtering methods expects you to drink the treated water which still has impurities in it, or added minerals for taste. Food is what should provide minerals, not water which is for hydration and elimination of toxins and other impurities. Distilled water has a negative charge wich picks up those impurities in your body and gets rid of it. Try a solar water distiller, It is the simplest and most efficient device for producing pure water and good health. Then, use a refillable water bottle and forget those cheap plastic bottles with misleading advertisement.

    I thought that this video was really interesting and that I think that bottled water stinks.

    I loved your video and makes perfect sense. When I am at home in Ireland, I can happily and easily reach for some tap water, in most places anyway. As an expat living in Moscow, this is next to impossible based on scare tactics or ignorance. I use filter water at home and hardly ever buy a new bottle. People often look at me as if I am a chapeskate or nuts becuase I keep the same bottle with me for months on end.

    Absolutely great video and even better message. This is the best information I have seen on getting rid of the foolish waste-filled bottled water habit. I always advise my patients and friends that if they are concerned about their tap water, just buy a $19.95 tap water filter and fill their own reuseable bottles. Thank you for this insightful information. Doc

    While our tap water is safe, it is by no means healthy. When was the last time you saw a bottle water ad. The bottle water industry did not spent millions of dollars promoting bottle water over tap Consumers taste their tap water and know it taste funny. Consumers at a C-Store has to makes a beverage choice--water or soda. There reason bottle water sales have soared-- consumers want a healthier choice. I have dedicated my life to the refill bottle water market which is better than recycling. What the woman in the video didn't tell you is the story of water. Once consumers realize this story, they will never drink tap water again. Everyday nature purifies the water on our plant utilizing the hydrological cycle. Mainly heating up ocean water which rises into the sky and will fall as rainwater. Rainwater is basically distilled water. Water is the universal solvent, it dissolves everythng it comes in contact with. Imagine a water molecule is a sponge. So the quality of your drinking water is solely determined by what it comes in contact with from the time it falls from the sky. So think about all the substances that good old tap water comes in contact with. While our public water supply does an excellent job producing safe water, it is by no means healthy. Yes demineralized water does not have any taste---that's what you want. Do a test, put a bowl of tap water and a bowl of bottled water in front of your pet. See which water they will drink. Even if the municipal water company could produce clean healthy water, think about all the pipes which the water passes through before it reaches you. We installed millions of miles of abestos cement water mains, think about galvanize pipes, etc. If you have a plumber friend have him give you a piece of pipe whenever he repairs a leak. You will be shocked. I agree we should not be bottling water in Fiji and shipping it around the world. We need to refill our bottles or install a distilled or RO system in your home to obtain clean, healthy drinking water. watervendorsbyus.com
