All About Water
Artesian WATER $3-$5/Gallon
BEST DRINKING WATER
Water sourced from far below the earth's surface. This water has been naturally filtered by the many layers of the earth's crust. Full of vital minerals and naturally alkaline. Comes at a premium price, but absolutely worth the cost.
GREAT DRINKING WATER
Surface water that is generally collected from natural springs. This water is high in mineral content and great tasting, but is usually not alkaline. Also may have higher levels of contaminants from environmental exposure.
REVERSE OSMOSIS FILTERED WATER JUGS
ACCEPTABLE DRINKING WATER, GREAT FOR COOKING AND HOUSEHOLD USE
Highly pure water that goes through a rigorous filtration process. Lacks sufficient mineral content to be the only drinking water. Similar to distilled water, but has trace amounts of minerals. Can be purchased in alkaline form for about $1/gallon at self serve fill stations, or regular form for about $0.39/gallon at most self serve filling stations.
Whole Home Reverse Osmosis Filter
About $10,000 + Maintenance
ACCEPTABLE DRINKING WATER, VERY CONVENIENT FOR HOUSEHOLD USE
Whole home RO filters are very convenient to have, but require a significant upfront cost and maintenance every 6-12 months. Expect to pay in the ballpark of $10,000 up front. Consider adding a remineralization kit to this for around $200.
Vitamin C Chlorine
$60 + Filters
A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR SHOWER IF YOU DON'T HAVE A WHOLE HOME RO FILTER
Chlorine gas from taking a hot shower is the number one cause of exposure to chlorine in our daily environment. It is critically important to filter out chlorine from your shower water. Costs about $60 up front plus about $5 per replacement filter - a minor cost compared to the benefits it delivers.
