The best drinking water

Hi everyone

I'd really like some advice on getting the best drinking water.

I sense that the best drinking water comes from natural springs, and second to that would maybe be water from a distiller or a Berkie. What equipment do you use to get the best drinking water?

Hi Shine on,

It's an essential point to raise - water is crucial to healthy functioning of the body and especially to help raise vibration.

I find that because I eat a diet with plenty of raw plant based food and fruit, it isn't necessary to drink that much fluid. But when I do, I'll use local spring water as the priority if I can. Alternatively bottled spring water. I tend not to rely on tap filters - reverse osmosis purifiers would be my prefered if I had to use tap water.

Best wishes

Dear Shine on, 

 

Thank you for opening this thread! I was actually thinking of opening one myself,  as there are so many considerations about water that I have been thinking about for months now. 

 

So far,  I have been mainly drinking bottled spring water,  but it is not ideal,  because of the plastic thst goes in us,  and outside of us.(even if we recycle it,  10 bottles a week are a lot!) 

 

Then I thought okay I'll collect my own water from a spring every week,  and filter it using a Berkeley filter. It turned out that the filter didn't remove much (don't know why), and I had a head ache when I tried to drink the 'filtered' spring water. There was also the issue of practicality when getting your own water and carrying it in the tube!!! 

Then I thought I'd try reverse osmosis and install it in the tap. But that is quite expensive, and there need to be small modifications in the area close to the tap. So because I'm renting a flat,  I didn't go for that. 

 

So I recently discovered and currently using Zero water.  It removes all dissolved solids from the tap water (including the benedicial ones),  so i thought I'll give it a try.  The first filter lasted about 2.5 weeks (but I realised I drank a lot). But it also raised the question in me whether there are other things (liquids,  gases?)  that it doesn't filter... 

And the other thing of course that is worth exploring as Open said is the amount of water we need to drink.  I never thought about that one, and just aimed towards 2L or more every day and drinking water even when not thirsty. Probably that may have been a little bit too much for me! 

Thank you Open for offering your perspective and Shine on for opening the thread. A tricky one!! 

 

All the best <3

  I have been pondering this for quite some time now. I have done some research on reverse osmosis machines that are portable. It is a 5 stage filtration system, sold here in Canada. Here is a link to the company I have an interest in buying it from;  https://www.aquasafecanada.com/products/5-stage-portable-100-gpd-revers…;
I'm not sure if they ship around the world so a little bit more research to be done. I would think if it's sold here it should be sold around the world. 

  There is a lot of research out there about spring water bottled. This water is filtered at the source of the spring and then possibly can be treated with chemicals like fluoride. 

  As for collecting and drinking natural spring water I would recommend taking a sample and having it tested for contaminants. Contaminants can leak into the water table from miles and miles and miles away and up to over a hundred & fifty feet. So although it may be coming from the ground it still may be contaminated, best to check. 

  I am now going to be purchasing this portable reverse osmosis machine from this company. And I will get back to you when I try it out and see how it works. 

Much much love in your adventure.

Thanks for all your input.

Charlie: I would love to know what you think of the system you end up going for. I had a quick look on their website and they have lots of different products. I also sent them a message to find out whether their systems would be compatible here in the UK, and haven't heard anything back. 

Hiya Charlie

Yes, that does help. Thanks for the link.

I'm thinking about getting a distiller now instead. The water that is produced by one is 99.9% pure by all accounts.
