    Here’s why you need to clean your water bottle more often (hawaiinewsnow.com)n

    You'll need to use a lot of water to clean the bottle. Unless, you shower and clean the bottle at the same time.

    There was the case of brackish water underneath a portion of the Ala Moana
    parking lot.
    When that corner fell into a sort of cavern it raised a lot of hackles.
    Peering into that hole one could see waves , and some say,
    small sharks.
    Luckily the repair staff were very skilled.

    I have a TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) meter that I use for making colloidal silver. The meter measures the parts per million of any contaminant part per million parts of water. Hawaiian brand distilled water typically measures at 3 parts per million (PPM), although distilled water is supposed to be 0. the purified water by reverse osmosis from a dispensing machine at 99 Ranch Market measures 16-17 PPM. The Kirkland purified water at Costcos measures at 6 PPM. Tap water is in the ballpark of around 250 PPM. Unfortunately, when using the Britta filter, it only reduces the PPM by around 20-30 PPM's. So the Britta water comes out to 220-230 PPM. Not that much difference from ordinary tap water. Our tap water is fairly good to begin with.

    Does that mean a Britta filter won't make tap water more pure?

    Question...Water: Tap or Bottled?

    Answer: We have both an under-counter filter(cold water only) that I replace every 6 months and Menehune Water(Of Course!) delivery.

    Works for us.

    Just remembered to say that I wipe the bottle with a wet paper towel well before placing it.

    I'm sorry, I didn't see the 2 earlier requests until now.
    Understand, I worked there 1 day, but it was enuf to see obvious problems as part of my grunt duties were to clean floors thoughout the work areas, and load filled bottles into trucks.
    Basically, the place is an unclean warehouse with a lack of sufficient worker training, quality control, and supervision, allowing virtually anything to happen. The rule of thumb was, "if you see anything in the water, say something". Not for public safety, but for damage control.

    I worked at the Halawa plant one day years ago and I've made a point of not touching the stuff since. I'd suggest you consider doing the same.
    yeah me too. If Menehune water is that bad I think we should know just what processes are in place. If it's bad enough for you, it's bad for everyone else.

    So what is it about Menehune Water that is so repulsive?

    Would you mind sharing what you saw?

    Did anyone else ever think there was a difference between "kitchen" water and "bathroom" water when they were kids? I always thought bathroom tap water was colder, but some of my friends would only drink water out of the kitchen tap. Husband and I were talking about this the other day and laughing.

    Tap water for me. I think it's ridiculous how much money people waste on bottled water and how much trash is produced...all for a product that is often inferior to a free product readily available.
