distilled water and water distillers

Post by Anon » Wed, 24 May 2000 04:00:00



The myth's behind distilled water being 'harmfull' come
from water filter dealers.

You can buy an automatic water distiller for about the same
price as you can a reverse osmosis water filter sysem.  You
can buy manual water distillers way cheaper than most water
filter systems.

The difference?

Water distillers consistently produce purer water than
filters, and not only do they take all the impuritys out,
but the heat process also kills all the bugs, bacteria, etc.

Water filter systems such as reverse osmosis systems, are a
money maker for 'water filter salesmen'  In my area you are
looking at $550 for a reverse osmosis system.  Then after
the guy gets her, he'll try to sell you additional pre
filters, and post filters, and all kind of add ons. Then in
my area, I don't know about others, but the water clogs the
membrans and filters, meaning you are looking at buying
expensive new filters every 3 months.

As with most things, follow the money trail.  I sincerly
believe the myth about PURE distilled water being 'bad' for
you comes from salesmen.  Come on, how can pure water
be 'bad'? LOL   Some salesmen even try to claim their
filters filter out the 'bad'stuff but leave the 'good'
stuff in the water, hehe.

You can find very cheap water distillers at sears and

I don't drink tap water and I'm not giving it to my cats, call me paranoid
if you please.  I use a water distiller and when you clean it, you really
don't want to drink tap water.

I think this whole giving your cat "only the best" water is completely
paranoid.  Cats that are outside and ferals drink muddied water, water with
debris in it, acid rain, defecetated water, etc.  Giving your cat anykind of
water that is filtered IS NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!! Sheesh!

Well I don't give my cats tap water because where I live, it has added
fluorine in it so people's teeth are cleaner.  haha.  And fluorine is bad
for cats.
We have a reverse osmosis system at my place... so we just give them that.
But we didn't BUY the system FOR My cats.  :-)

distilled water and water distillers

Post by Paul M. Cook? » Thu, 25 May 2000 04:00:00


My cat only drinks water that is, shale we say "aged."  If it isn't full of
bugs and algae he just isn't interested.  They have stomachs that are full
of gastric enzymes that are so strong not much can escape.  Ordinary
filtered water is fine for any cat.

I have a water distiller I bought at Sears for around $100.  I use the
water myself and give this water to my cats also.  I don't like the
taste of city water.  We get our water from Lake Erie and all the
industry dumps into Lake Erie so I don't trust it.  You can also look at
what's left at the bottom of the distiller when you get through - crud!
My doctor also said "I wouldn't drink Lake Erie."   I want the best for
my cats so they get what I get and even if wrong, in certainly can't
hurt.

I've been following this thread and man, I am glad to live in Germany. Here,
controls on tap water quality are *MUCHO* tighter than even on bottled
mineral water. Quality varies, true; we have very hard water here where I
live now, so it's the everlasting calcium war for me. My mother lives less
than 100 miles to the south and not only is the water so soft that it's
actually difficult to rinse the soap away when you're washing hands, it also
tastes deliciously.
