Looking for advice

For years, except when I went to Ukiah for 9 months, I’ve paid for spring water to be delivered to my house. My son has always been around to lift the 5 gal (40 lbs) bottles onto the cooler for me. Well my son is moving out on his own now so I have no one to do the water for me.

I called the company and told them on the next delivery date I would be a cooler return because I’m cancelling. When the lady found out why she said we have 3 gal bottles that weigh 26 pounds for $7.

Right now I use 5 of the 5 gal and they are $9. With the other fees my bill is about $65. If I did decide to stick with it I would need 8 or 9 of the 3 gal and my bill would be $75 or more. Do you think I should go the 3 gallon route and keep my beloved spring water or just give it up and use my brita pitcher and save that $75 to put towards more bubly water or whatever.

I think you should treat yourself and get that delicious spring water.

Brita pitchers don’t work.

I mean 3 gallons is probably still heavy. But bottled spring water is really good.

yea, that’s true. I may not even be able to do the 3 gallons.

I was really dehydrated before I started getting it. I just don’t like the other water. This way if I’ve drunk all the water I know I’ve done good at hydrating.

They may remove sediment and chlorine to improve taste, but they miss heavy metals and lots of other micro nasties.

that happens to be exactly how I like my frogs!

Personally, I would go with the Brita, but that’s just me.

I drink tap water, but our state requires testing and reports sent to all residents about what’s in the water. We also have a town spring.

Is there a possibility your town has one?

No. We have reservoirs. The water is very hard and if you are not used to it you will get diarrhea.

Spend the money on the smaller bottles. I drink sparkling water at home and its a small luxury but it makes a difference to me drinking slightly better quality water.

You could install a waterfilter coming out of your tabewater.

Our tap water comes from underground it’s very good but an hour away in New Orleans they get their drinking water from the Mississippi River. I don’t know what’s in it but it’s nasty. I won’t even brush my teeth with it.

So it depends what your water is like. We just buy bottled water from the store sometimes for company but I mostly just use the water and ice in the refrigerator door. It tastes fine.

You can buy a filter for your whole house if you use an ice maker. You are essentially drinking the water anyway. Our refrigerator does have a filter but I don’t know what quality it is.

This alone would convince me to continue buying spring water
