I don't know why California can't figure this out, it's so simple

Good afternoon, Liberty, Julian. I remember a photo from years ago when brand bottled water was gaining popularity. It showed a brand name bottled water tanker truck filling up at a city hydrant. Obviously staged but it did get me to wondering. As always ……

They should be desalinating and using the water from the Pacific en masse.

Too costly at the level of technology they have right now, I guess.

The greatest villains in that formula are the farming and fossil fuel cartels which have exemptions to drill deep into the ground and extract from the water table.

Lol well that might be better use for it than the children who open up the hydrants and dance around them.

It's not far off. Something like 2/3 of bottled water is just tap water from whatever municipality the bottling plant is in.

Good evening BxE. I would hope not considering a regular sewer system might not exist. As always ….

I use water filters they work to remove the high metal content crap in my water thats causing my pipes to corrode.  The 6 stage filter is right where the water comes inside on the main pipe.  Before that the water was so bad that I was replacing my boiler every 5 years because of corrosion.

Also water from paper containers is far better than plastic bottles ugh.

Boxed water hasn't caught on at all around here. I had assumed that was true everywhere. Haven't tried it personally, so no judgement on taste vs plastic, although plain water is just a bummer to start with.

I'm very nervous about plastic bottles not just because of the impact on the environment but also because of plastic microparticles being found in the bloodstream.  Dont want that.

Im gonna die from about 19 other things before the plastics kill me

Good evening Liberty, BxE. So that’s why the daughters keep on me about getting rid of the plastic bottle I use to refrigerate my tap water. Now if I could somehow direct those micro particles where I wanted them. As always……

Been there, done that, at least until Homeland Security(??) decided that potassium permanganate, which was used to regenerate the iron filters, was a terrorist threat....

If you live in the ''burbs and get your own water,, you know it is a nightmare fluid, it takes up every possible contaminant available.

Getting it clean is a never ending task.

Nobody needs excessive heat ever, but also it's too early for sweaters and knit caps. We spent most of the summer holed-up inside, seeking refuge from record humidity. A month of pleasant warmth is fair.

I like heat but not humidity and would go to extremes to get rid of humidity.  (Cant we just siphon it off into space?  I wonder how Mars did it? LOL)
