  iqs 18:56 10 Oct 2010


Any water experts out there ?

I was wondering which is better for you,tap water or bottled water,more so in regards to the ph,is a low ph better for you or an high ph ?

I ask because I only drink bottled water,but this can be expensive.

I think you need Vog for this.

What is the best type of water to drink? - really depends on who you ask.

Bottled water is probably the biggest con of all in this country.

I thought it was well known that it is a big con Worldwide. However there are times when it is a Godsend. I use it all the time in my motorhome, but I bottle it myself from my kitchen tap.

Thanks for the quick reply Fruit Bat /\0/\

After watching a program regarding how we receive our water,not the process of filtering to make safe for consumption ,but the time/route it takes to our homes,I decided to switch to bottled water.

But is it better for you,that the questions I cant find an answer to.

I did read somewhere where the water company recycled sewerage water and gave the customers it back to use again.
So thinking along those lines you may be better off with bottled water.

Not to panic just had a quick look and I do not think it applies to the UK Yet.

Having drank water from many sources around the world, I definitely wouldn't buy bottled water or worry about 'processed' drinking tap water here in the UK.

pH of 7 which is neutral, carbonated or "fizzy" water will be slightly acidic (CO2 dissolved in water gives carbonic acid).
More worrying is if the bottled water is in plastic bottles as these leach harmful chemicals.
I use tap water filtered with a Britas filter,then put in the fridge in a glass jug.
