Best water suppliers in US?

    I want to start getting the 5 gallon containers. I have looked at a few suppliers that all seem to offer Spring, Purified, Distilled, etc. The Purified on Crystal springs for example says it is made through reverse osmosis but the Spring does not say that. Trying figure out what is best? I also want to make sure that the containers are BPA free. Has anyone found a supplier that has all of this???

    Of course! I guess I was hoping to get feedback from others that don't have spring water readily available, that also use one of the several suppliers.
    Such as:
    Earth Fare's RO
    Crystal Springs

    I'm sorry, I don't know what are the names of the ones where we fill up our jugs at the store... but Primo sounds familiar to me. All we've worried about all these years is that it is RO ~ which means no fluoride.

    I have an RO unit, and the manufacturer admits that osmosis membrane does not remove that pesky fluoride. I had to add a special filter to unit to remove fluoride, and even then it is not rated for 100% fluoride removal: more like ~ 99%. If you are financially capable you would be advised to buy top shelf expensive equipment that will remove 100% fluoride and other very hard to remove toxins.

    If you have well water at your property it can be a blessing or dicey, depending. If your well draws deep from pure ground water you should be good to go unless there are excessive natural contaminants like minerals and sulfates, etc.

    But unfortunately not all well water is pure and safe. There can be pesticides and other pollutants in it, and there is a real concern in fracking areas of fracking chemicals in water. You need to have your well water tested regularly.

    But even if you have the purest of water if it is in your household plumbing before it comes out of the faucet it will be devitalized by confinement in twisting pipes.

    For those of us (and that regrettably is almost all of us) without direct access to pure spring water finding healthy drinking water is indeed a dilemma.

    Nope ~ not at all. But thank you.

    Jack has said that RO is good ~ and if it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me.

    One of the top things on my list when the funds are available someday is to take my family and go to Mexico. I guess we'll all be taking that 1% of fluoride along with us. :)

    Dr Cheney's testing with 3D echo showed Iceland Spring increased cardiac output better than any other water. This means it supported redox best. Fiji was next.

    I found that most of the suppliers offer spring, purified and distilled water.

    Is there an advantage to using the purified (which is RO) instead of spring water that does not have any fluoride?

    I think that Mountain Valley spring water in glass bottles is your best choice. I have 5 gallon containers delivered to my home.

    High quality bottled water like Mountain Valley is an excellent choice.

    However, as a frugal belt and suspenders character I won't rely on bottled sources because of potential supply disruptions in our fragile economy, or prices escalating because of energy/transportation costs.

    As a note of interest, there is a website map that lists springs sites across USA: findaspring.com

    Detailed information on this site is sparse about spring locations and accessibility to public. Nonetheless, it is a starting point.

    Is the Aquatru a good option? Are there better choices?
