      That's close to what Uncle Bill, may he rest in peace (he was a city plumbing inspector), built at his house a few years before he died. He always bragged about the purity; Cancer got him anyway.

      What do you do about the water your skin absorbs when you bath/shower?

          Years ago, i did some research on water. I ended up convincing myself that the company called, Enagic, made the holy grail of water machines. The machine conditioned water is referred to as, kangen water. Which there are different types. All with various ph levels, for various uses. They have several models, with the top of the line being approximately $4000. I bought one, and drank it faithfully for years. Then i discovered it did not remove fluoride. After reading the associated health issues with fluoride, it was enough for me to discontinue use, and switch to distilled. Fluoride is reported to cause hardening of the arteries, calcium deposits in joints, coating of the pineal gland, etc. The mechanic is correct, you still absorb it when showering, etc. At least limiting it in drinking water is a step in the right direction. If anyone is interested, i'll sell this machine cheap

          Aarons...I have to totally disagree with the video and your take on this whole subject. Drinking Distilled H2O may be your choice, but most here rely on the god ol' tap H2O or well H2O
          Where I live I have H2O that comes from City Wells. I had to install an H2O softener because of the Calcium amount and other hard minerals that were of acceptable amounts but left a sour taste when used for cooking drinking and bathing. I also installed a H2O drinking purifier for tap water which is separate from the sink tap. I have great H2O now and my ice maker has some very clean results as well. Now I do use Distilled H2O for a medical reason. I have sleep Apnea and have a CPAP machine that requires Distilled H2O. With all this BS of hording H2O taking place, I am having a very difficult time getting distilled because shoppers...and yes you too...are buying more than you really need. Now I get it about your desire. But in fact you are exploiting and looking at only yourself and not the big picture. I have many survival skills acquired from my Boy Scout days and the USAF. Have you ever heard of Hali-zone tablets or Iodine tablets which help with having cleaner drinking H2O??? Boiling H2O will clear out a tremendous amount of impurities and yes even home distilling. So my suggestion for you is to get back down to Earth and not think that your so called video is accurate and gospel and others should follow suit. By your own admission you are subscribing to nothing more than Snake Oil propaganda...IMHFO. I also notice that you live there in Dayton Ohio. I also lived in that area when stationed at WPAFB. The local H2O isn't all that great there either. But I still consumed it and I ain't pissin' bricks of mineral deposits because of it. As a final option...get a Life Straw. Far better than a measly video...cr8crshr/Bill:usflag::usflag::usflag:

                    This sounds like Orbit gum that's sweetened with Zylatol[sp?] when it first came out. Then all of a sudden they say that Zylatol cause's cancer in Lab Rats. What they didn't tell you was that they were dosing them with the equivalent of over 100 packs of gum a day. Now who in their right mind chows down on over 100 packs of gum a day?:realcrazy::realcrazy:

                    My aunt hated water,never drank any at all. It was coffee fresh squeezed juice or tea. Now all of those are made with water but she couldn't tolerate plain water. She lived till she was 97.

                    Well said!! No one knows what it takes to live a long life. Some die old and some die young. Eat this, don't eat that. Every one is different and no one has the answers, period.

                      Psalm 139:16 English Standard Version (ESV)

                      16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

                      In other words, we live then we die when we are supposed to.

                      Matthew 6:25-27
                      Do Not Be Anxious

                      25“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?

                      To the OP - nothing wrong with trying to look after your health, I wish more did, but if you need to drink tap water for a few months you'll be fine, your arteries won't harden up overnight, and you can get back to the distilled water when everything gets back to normal. Just relax and go with the flow.
