I tried digging for water when I was a kid. Water coming out of the tap had a nasty taste. Boiling it helped. I gathered all the objects I could find and started digging. It was hard work as the dirt was hard and rocky. About a foot deep I hit clay and couldn’t go any deeper with my screwdrivers and garden spade. Thus ended my quest to find cold refreshing well water.
In the time since I have tried many waters.
I tried the pitchers with a carbon filter. Water tasted a bit better from the tap but there was a unique flavor from the pitchers I tried which was a bit objectionable. Sometimes your cup of water come with tiny flecks of carbon dust. I tried the carbon filter you screwed on the end of the faucet. Water tasted much like with the pitcher. My best experience with a carbon filter was with the filter included in my GE fridge. It provided cold water and ice with pretty much all objectionable flavors removed.
I tried the reverse osmosis filtered water at work. It was strange water as there was no flavor to it.
I tried the machines in front of the supermarket. They are suppose to use carbon filtration and reverse osmosis to remove everything bad for you. There were no flavors I didn’t like. It was good clean water with a bit more flavor than the reverse osmosis water from work.
I tried the PB Water store. Water goes through carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, and some other filters which I forget what they do. I like the minimal flavor a bit better than the grocery store machines. I like how they keep the place and the machinery clean.
I tried lots of bottled waters from local grocery stores. Some of my favorites were Voss, Fuji, and Sparklett’s. These waters tasted great but were pricey.
One day I read about Carlsbad alkaline water. I was excited to read it’s well water and only 70 cents/gallon. I didn’t taste any flavors I don’t like. I love the light clean flavor of Carlsbad alkaline water. It has been a long journey but my quest for cold refreshing water is complete. Thanks for digging this well for me back in 1882.
This is now my favorite spot to get water. I met the owner while she was working on the machine and she was very friendly and informative.
