    You can't get all the water you want and complain about it. If that isn't a rag, I don't know what is. Your being greedy in hard times, Stop It!

    I am so sorry. I didn't realise you were the one in authority over thread content. I hope you enjoyed the informative video. Or was that not allowed by you either ? Are your rules posted somewhere for members to read, and abide by, buddy ?

        At some point, you do reach over capacity.

          Why is everyone making a run on water? There’s no virus in it, right? We have power and there’s nothing that will put the water supply at risk. Do that many people live on bottled water? My area has good city water and even those around have ground water with filtering. I can see if your power is out or floods that may compromise ground water.

          Just can’t figure that one out.

              • Eliminate up to 99% of dissolved solids, chlorine, fluoride, microorganisms and heavy metals such as barium, cadmium, chromium, lead and mercury from your water. Use RO purified water for drinking, cooking & ice for improved flavor and increased health benefits.
              you may want to look at what the newest systems can do.

                  very nice system! I don't see a solenoid shutoff valve on the uv in case of system failure, is it tied into the RO unit, or not required for residential!

                    I will say this, not wanting to drink fluoride is ok. I believe our reccomendeded levels are safe. Saying that, the fluoride is for healthy teeth. I grew up insmall towns and on the farm and have a mouthfull of fillings. But, since I moved to town (40 years ago) I have had few cavities. My mother has also lived on the farm for years (and in small towns back in the 60's when there was no flouride) and she had bad teeth and dentures since she was in her 40's. My wife was born and raised on the farm and she had fluoride treatments from the start and she has exellent teeth. Just an observation.

                      Everyone should care about the quality of the water they drink. Its a strong measure in maintaining their health. Which is especially important at a time such as this. Not caring is fuel for the fire. My personal consumption rate is not gluttonous. It is what's recommended by leading experts, ie, the article link i posted to rc earlier. Maintaining ones health, along with social distancing are the best things we can do for one another, at this time. Imo.

                        I think the fluoride addition is for cavity prevention, and chlorine injection is to combat nasties like Giardia in the water supply.

                        We have Greenies over here protesting the addition of fluoride tio town water supplies...they are all ugly people who smoke dope and have bad teeth...enough said. :eek:

                              I drank about a gallon of purified sparkling water a day until this thing hit. I’ve cut my consumption down so as not to buy so much that others will be deprived. I think I’m okay with 2 liters.
