    I drink a gallon of distilled water daily. I usually buy it from my local kroger grocery. The last week or so they've been out, or very low on supply. Today, they. Were out. While there i noticed signs saying, limit of 3 for water, and 2 for eggs & milk. I drove to the next closest kroger- zero water. I drove to walmart. They had shelves full of every type of water. No signs posted. I grabbed 6 gallons. When i approached the front of the store, the cashier said, a limit of one per customer. I said ok, i'll be back in 5 more times. She said, they wouldn't sell to me on my return trips. I tried a dollar store on my way home, no luck there either. I know we aren't supposed to hoard ( though this would only be a 6 day supply for me). And i know we are supposed to avoid going in public as much as possible. Though it seems to me, the limits of 1, 2, and 3 , promote frequent public exposure. Especially for larger families.

      That sucks. You should try a Brita filter pitcher. I have 5 gallons set aside and 10 more coming as soon as my containers arrive. (probably tomorrow) I use it for beer brewing. It works fine for that and removes the chlorine taste and smell.

        I have a $4000 kangen water machine. I stopped using it. It like most others, rely on a charcoal filter. I've learned that charcoal does not remove fluoride. And fluoride causes hardening of the arteries, calcium deposits in your joints, covers your pineal gland, etc.

            Distilling is the ONLY way to remove fluoride.

                Not sure what part of Ohio you live, but the Great Lakes water system is the best in the world. Also has a better percentage of Fluoride which is healthy for the teethe.

                  Do a li'l research. You'll find there's approx 80, 000 chemicals in it. And while fluoride may be good for your teeth, it causes many health issues.

                    I'm no health expert but distilled water would have no minerals correct?
                    I have a well so my water has iron, calcium etc... it's quite hard.
                    Wonder why my abs aren't rock hard? I guess you are what you eat, not drink.
                    :)

                        The water plants are only suppose to put a certain amount of fluoride based on the EPA laws(I'm hoping they have been abiding by these laws). Anyways, I have been drinking Great Lakes water since I was a child. Grew up on lake St. Clair. Never really drank the actual water from the lake, but from the house taps that come from the water plants. Always have 2 gallons from the tap in the fridge. Some folks don't care for it, many still use the filtering systems on their sinks and some do buy the distilled water from the stores. I have been to Europe many times, all over this country, Japan, many Caribbean islands and counties, But I still think its the best in the world. Canada has great water also. Not sure if it's a coincidence, but I have had only 1 cavity in my 66 years. Both of our boys have none(ages 32 and 29) and the wife has 3. If there are 80,000 chemicals in this water, I want my money back because I would expect to at least be glowing in the dark:). I hope you find the distilled that you like. I just wish people didn't have to hoard up on these items.

                        We live off Lake Erie, and water is great. I had access to our water plant to see how we get our water and know people who work there. They are very serious about the work they do because it's the water their families drink. We use a filtered picture to have cold water.
                        How about a dehumidifier then run through a filter, hell with the humidity in the summer my basement will give you a gallon every 24 hours.:D ..

                        At our house we have a 500 gallon per day R/O system. Works great never any issues and great water. Installed a 50 gallon per day unit under the sink in our condo for drinking water and ice. Also works great.

                        Thanks for the post. I watched it and it does make you wonder. You had to do that to me........I guess I'll just drink beer.

                          i'm glad you took the time to watch it. And i hope everyone else here does too. Now, while you're in the fridge, toss me a cold one ! :)

                            We all must make sacrifice's in these troubled times, no need to rag about it and make matters worse!
