A long time ago I had a doctor that had me drink steamed distilled water. After a short time my blood pressure went down and I was feeling much better.

I asked my doctor how that could be good for me. He said it was acting like a magnet and sucking all the salts and impurities out of my system. The doctor said distilled water will not take any nutrients your body needs.

So, even though I have not drank steamed distilled water for a long time, I feel it is probably good for ya. That said, Lou is drinking very good water and I applaud his efforts to take care of himself in that way.

Although we prefer Arrowhead Springs, we haven't been able to get that brand lately except in very small bottles.
George, I can mail you some.

Want me to put it in a bottle? I will have to find one with a label...

I bought a durastill water distiller from http://www.thewaterdistillerstore.com. It is 6 years old and I have had no problems. I liked their low price guarantee, cheap shipping, 1 year warranty and made in USA.

There is nothing better that a cold glass of distilled water camping.

Yep, me too, wherever I find a tap and whenever I need the water.

But the very best water I have ever tasted has been that which flowed directly from the ground in the multitude of springs found alongside the Appalachian trail in the southern states of Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia...

Hi:All... Anything "Distilled is fine by me". One thing I learned is never add water to "Distilled spirits" as it waters them down!!! Always add "Distilled spirits" to the water, as it improves the "Water"!!!

When I travel to a country or city that doesn't have the infrastructure to supply good drinking water I drink beer or soda. Fortunately there is an abundance of good clean water in North America, some folks are simply closer to access than others.

Buying water off the shelf as distilled or spring...(seems like a trivial decision to make btw, when we consider what we ingest food-wise daily) so whatever is cheapest!

Distilled water is generally in the half or full gallon jugs witch is convenient for coffee/tea water when rv'ing if it's cheaper , but the smaller personal bottles are usually spring or reasonable facsimile in my experience.

A lot of the commercial "spring water" is tap water that has had the minerals and other impurities removed through a reverse osmosis process. Then they put certain minerals back in so that it tastes natural to most people. That's probably how most big bottlers can get away with using bottling plants all over the country.

Here in Denver we drink, bathe in, and water our lawns with snow melt from the mountains. At least we know where it comes from and we're usually the first human users of it after it falls from the sky. But most municipalities aren't so lucky. It's not uncommon for one city's sewage plant to be pumping their outflow into a river upstream from another city's municipal water plant. There's people who think that a shortage of fresh water is going to be a bigger problem in the future than peak oil.

While doing research on MTBE contamination I discovered that the aquifer used by a local water bottling plant had numerous MTBE remediation sites surrounding it. Some of the wells used by two of the nearby water districts were shuttered as a result of finding significant amounts of the stuff. I questioned the bottling plant if they were aware of the local MTBE problem and if their water was tested for it. They clammed up tighter than a drum.

some of you on this thread might find this youtube video/documentary on bottled water interesting.

The Story of Bottled Water

It gives a new look at our assumptions about bottled water, though I know there are companies out there that do a good job. One of the best, which I drank for years when very sick and concerned about what I put in my bod, is Volvic - but it's from France! The video also give statistics on city water - better than you think.

We drink our well water, which is filtered with two types of filters and run through a UV light. It is high in minerals, which may or may not be good for us, but it's what we have. We try to take a lot with us in high grade plastic water containers when traveling, and reserve it for drinking, using campground water for everything else. Many campgrounds, due to location, are on wells and likely have some filtration system similar to what we have at home, or use a chlorination system. But who knows? I've always figured taste is the tell-tale sign of good water, I use to haul water from a local park, a source of water for many locals, before we had a well, and though it smelled sometimes of sulfur at the source, it tasted wonderful and tested good.
