Testing and Filtering Your Water – #SolutionsWatch

If you’re a regular Corbett Reporteer, then by now you’re aware of the danger to human health caused by water fluoridation. But are you aware of the chlorine and other potentially toxic and carcinogenic substances in your tap water? And are you aware of your options for filtering your water and how to test to make sure you’re getting all of the particulates out?

Join James today as he talks to a water expert and answers some basic questions about testing and filtering your water.

Dealt with a Leaf Filter sales guy trying to sell me their gutter guard system. I invited him through a circular that was placed in my mailbox. High pressure. One time savings if you buy immediately game. His sample products were old. Ignoring pertinent questions by changing the subject. A young impatient man with an ordered sales spiel. Not impressed. Might as well have been selling vacuums or Amway products. I had to coach him down from his red faced anger fit when I told him no. He did not want to know why I said no. It looked like a good system but it still needed semi annual maintenance that involved ladders and hoses which I already have to do. Multiple pieces butted together without connectors of any sort that kept the seams tight. Simple expansion/contraction forces will create gaps much larger that the highly touted fine mesh screens… Read more »

Hey, that’s cool. Trade toxic municipal water for equally toxic rainwater.

Given the saturation of the atmosphere with aluminum, strontium, barium, graphene, polymers and more by the constant spraying, the rain (even the rain in Spain) falls flat as a pancake in the safety category.

That makes no sense. Every scrap of water starts as rainwater and it all filters through the atmosphere.

Your treated tap water will have all that rubbish dissolved in it PLUS the stuff the water company adds.

Rainwater even unfiltered is probably less toxic than tap water. And if your rainwater has been boiled and filtered it’s probably next best choice after good mountain spring water.

Check out what your pets or livestock will drink. They will usually choose a muddy puddle before our tap water. And they’re not daft.

What you say is 100% spot on – IF the climate engineers did not constantly (and I do mean constantly) saturate the skies with elements at least as toxic as anything that goes into tap water (except of course for tap water in fracking areas).

Mate –

Where do you think your tap water comes from?

It comes from RAIN that falls into a reservoir and then gets pumped full of chlorine and aluminium and God knows what else before you drink it.

It’s exactly the same stuff you find in your rain barrel but with even more crap added.

You can’t avoid drinking modern polluted rain water unless you drink spring water that’s been filtering through rock for a few hundred years.

Which is why rain water straight from the sky is a better option than the same rain water straight from your tap.

The aluminum and chlorine are added in water filtration plants. Aluminum is used as a flocculent to settle out solids in clarifyers. Chlorine kills microbes after settling and sand filtration. Simple process that does not happen in a rain barrel. I would worry more about what your roof is made out of. My new roof has flecks of copper that impedes the growth of moss and algae. Copper piping, a building code requirement, is a natural bacterial growth inhibitor. Every heard of Bordeaux’s Mixture? A copper based mold inhibitor used in vinyards to stave off leaf mildews that nearly wiped out the French wine industry. I digress….

Do these atmospheric impurities dissolve into a permanent solution or do the impurities bind with soil particles on the ground. Kind of like glyphosate screamers. Glyphosate is formulated for binding with soil particles and breaks down fairly quickly. (I know. Everyone is pissed for at me for writing this.) Relax. It is just real facts. Volume and concentration makes no difference in the half life of the chemical. I am not saying it is or isn’t harmful. I am not advocating for it’s use one way or the other. Just stating a fact. The same for chemicals in the atmosphere (whether they are intentionally added or pouring out of an industrial smoke stack or a tail pipe). Do the suspended atmospheric solids, that cause condensation and fall as a constituent of rain, bind to soil and separate from water before rainwater percolates into the ground water? We are assuming. Simple… Read more »

What goes into water isn’t the only consideration. Two documentaries – Blue Gold and (I can’t recall the other one just now) present what happens when communities turn public water over to private concerns.

As bad as public control of water is, private control is even worse.

I’ve been using a water distiller for years. You can add minerals after you’ve distilled it if you wish. Running cost is about 30 pence a litre currently, and it warms the room up at the same time. That’s a bonus in winter.
I’ve been thinking of distilling some bottled mineral water to see if that is as pure and clean as we think.

Depends what you mean by “pure and clean”. Water isn’t ever pure H2O and isn’t meant to be. It all has ‘contaminants’ (not all bad or toxic) dissolved into it from its journey through the atmosphere and minerals dissolved in from its journey through rock and soil.

You will always get brown residue when you distill these out, no matter how good your water source is.

But

My mother paid the bills. I noticed her focus. And I asked questions. Such as….how much is the water bill? 20 cents a month, she said. I was the second youngest of seven. None of my brothers and sisters had a clue. Nor did they care. I did. I don’t know why. I could tell it was important and it drew my attention. What the fuck. I was five. Why did I care? It was 1961. I watched constantly. I remember. I reacted to emotional cues. Facial changes, etc.. Hard to miss. Kids know everything.

you can get 316 marine grade water distillers for £250 which can also distill sea water as well as hard water etc. i only need to purify the water i drink. my last washing machine lasted over 30 years in a hard water area. distilled water tastes excellent and before anyone comments that distilled water strips you of minerals no it doesn’t , we get most of our minerals from food not water.

My experience with it is as a brewer.

Sometimes we use RO water so that we can start from zero. We add our own salts to replicate water from different parts of the world in an attempt to more accurately replicate some beer styles.

Personally, after having spoken with enough scientists about this, I reckon it’d be a reckless thing to drink.

You will get “brown sludgy stuff” as a residue whenever you distill water – even the purest mountain spring water.

That brown stuff is not just impurities it’s also all the minerals and micro-nutrients that we need from the water.

Good spring water will probably produce more “brown sludgy stuff” than tap water.

No mate, I just don’t agree with you. And I know a bit of basic chemistry. You can easily prove me wrong by distilling off some good spring water compared with tap water. See how much sludge you get.

Then add some basic electrolytes to your distilled water and distill again.

I predict you’ll get brown sludge as the residue of those salts.
