I'm very fond of water,
I drink it noon and night;
No mother's son or daughter
Hath therein more delight.

At luncheon, too, I drink it,
And strength it seems to bring:
When really good, I think it
A liquor for a king.
But I forgot to mention --
'Tis best to be sincere --
I use an old invention
That makes it into Beer.

"Uisge" is just a different way of spelling "whiskey"; and it just means water. That must get confusing sometimes if you do just want a drink of water in a Gaelic speaking community...

..........................

Hard water is water with various stuff like sodium and magnesium dissolved in it. Furs up the domestic plumbing, but on the whole it's good for the plumbing in the body, because you need that stuff, and it tastes better. Remove the chemicals and it's called soft, and its better for washing and worse for drinking.

People often have water softening devices in their domestic plumbing systems, to save money on washing and plumbers. Then they have to pay for the water they drink in a bottle. You pays your money and you takes your choice.

Whether the water in your area is hard or soft will depend on where it's come from, and how it's been treated, either by the water company, or in your own system.

To make ' soft ' water, fill a suitable receptacle with tap water, apply a source of heat at approx. 212 degrees farenheit or 100 degrees celcius, after a while the water gets so soft it floats away.

We live in the country and have wonderfully pure well water usually. Just about a month ago it started getting cloudy and it tasted different too. So we called the University of Illinois to come and test it. Their recommendation was that we should either quit using the well or quit using the outhouse. We quit using the outhouse---and two days later the well dried up.

"...refrigerating chlorinated water just makes it colder, nothing more." Strictly true - the point is if you leave water standing for a few hours in an open container, a fair bit of the chlorine is going to disperse. It'd happen more effectively at room temperature, but the fridge is a handy place to leave it, and anyway with colder water that in itself masks the taste. (The same reason they persuade people to drink beers ice-cold in some parts of the world...)

Hard water tastes much better than soft water I think. Though maybe that's a matter of familiarity. Any time I'm somewhere and the water is great for washing and the soap lathers up fine, I know that I'll think the water tastes vile.

Were I thirsty enough, I'd drink any water. Push the sludge to one side, lap it up, wipe the scum off my lips afterwards. Go to the hospital when I got home. But, it's easy enough to set up a solar still apparatus -- you only need a source for moisture, a vessel to collect the water in (rusty can will work), a piece of plastic wrap or other such material (clear is best), and a few rocks. It might take a little bit, so start before you are desperate.

Someday I'm going to try distilling wine in a solar still. If it works, no tell-tale smoke for the revenooers to follow.

"I'm sure if I started bottling the stuff that comes out of our tap I'd get in big trouble."

Don't see why Kevin, a swimming coach down on the south coast of England, took advantage of a survey of water published in one of the UK papers. Taking all the "designer" bottled water into account, the best water available in the UK turned out to be what came out of the tap in Manchester. Now a hell of a lot of bottled water gets drunk at swimming galas, so this enterprising individual had tap water bottled up in Manchester and sold it at 50p a bottle. No complaints, people were prepared to buy it - she was after all selling the best water in the UK according to that survey.

Oh, dear. I was about to sing the praises of Dasani and then I read the post(s) about it being London tap water! I don't think that will stop me from drinking it though.

I was using a Brita filter and filtering tap water, and still do for tea, etc., but forgot to bring some to work one day, bought a bottle of Dasani in a pinch, and decided I liked it better. I'm not sure whether I really want to know where it comes from! (Can I pretend it's from a crystal clear spring here in the Shire, sans dead deer head?

Try looking at the water sources for all of the bottled waters at you grocery store. Some actually come from great places - natural aquifers, special springs and the like. Dasani (Coca-Cola) typically comes from the water source that feeds the local bottling plant (as does the water they add to the coke syrup).

My brother has one of those water-filtering pitchers and I honest to God cannot tell the difference between water before it goes through the filter and water after. Do they actually work? I can see them not working here in Houston because the water is absolutely disgusting and I'm not sure anything could get rid of all the crud in it, but maybe they help in places where the water has less baggage.

We lived in Colorado when I was a kid, where you don't need water filters except occasionally in the summer when in got extra hot (in my neighborhood, there were always a few days in August when the water inexplicably tasted like soap). The Iowa water I drank in college was OK, at least until we tested it in chem lab and realized it was full of sodium. *Full* of sodium. I think those filter things work by ion exchange so afterwards, there was probably even more sodium than there had been before.

Like I said, I drink cheap machine water. I was really thirsty today and a glass of it tasted just like [clean] melted snow. Mm-mm good.

I filter my tap water with a Brita filter. I was buying gallon jugs. After hearing something about people in Wisconsin fighting a Perrier plant I realized there were issues about water as a commodity. That on top of questionable health standards, I decided it would be better to filter the tap water. One place to find out more about water issues is:
Save America's Water.

I don't like soda so I do seem to end up buying plenty of bottled water when I'm out & want something to drink. It keeps me stocked with bottles to fill with my filtered water. I just don't ever seem to have a bottle with me when I want it.

You're right, Rapaire, aereating is one way to dissipate chlorine from the water. Exposure to sunlight will also do the trick. Many of the filters we now have will remove chlorine also.

None of the water tastes like chlorine. Fridge water tastes about the same as tap, just colder. The fridge has an automatic ice maker so it also has a spigot. It would be more trouble to keep it in a bottle than it is to just push on the dispenser. I don't like drinking super-cold water. At the library where I work it's a challenge to get a drink from any fountains--they're all chilled so much you freeze your teeth! I walk down to the second floor where the cooler on the fountain is broken.

In the winter our library water is really cold, and we don't have plumbing for hot water in our building. Don't know why--stupid move--cost savings, most likely. It was built back in the 1960s. It warms up nicely in the summer. In the summer at home you can almost take a shower with just "cold" water here its so warm from the tap.

My father, when young, used to walk two miles (each way) to get a drink of cold ice water at the local train station.

Unfortunately, drinking "wild" water these days -- almost anywhere -- leaves you open to giardia and worse. Too many people....

Once, while training with the National Guard up in Wisconsin we put a few cases of beer in a beautiful, cold, swiftly flowing creek to cool. That evening we enjoyed truly GREAT beer, even though it was Budweiser. The next day we found the very, very dead cow in the creek, about fifty feet upstream and around the bend from our beer. No ill effects from it, except a couple of hangovers.

Another time, during a very hot July, I was setting tombstones for a living and we had to install one of those full-grave-length jobs in a rural cemetery. We brought our own drinking water, and used the cemetery's well water for mixing the cement for the foundation (hey, these things aren't just laid on the ground!). When we ran out of the water we brought, the boss went into town and bought beer. We never drank the water from the cemetery well -- seems like it was downhill from the graves and had this odor to it....

Art, trouble with much of the "flourdiated" water is that the chemical used to generate the flouride effect isn't a simple application of flouride. I have a cousin who studied this--and told me some time ago that in fact the material used is a by-product that comes from a really toxic chemical industry. I can't remember the rest--I'll email her and ask for the particulars.

Tap water. The kids seem to prefer "fridge water," that comes through that filter. I think they mostly like it chilled. Bathroom sink water seems to taste better than kitchen sink water, though the kitchen water is prefectly good.

MMario, don't drink out of the end of the hose any more. They are often lined with materials that include PCBs that can get into the water you're drinking. I didn't know this until last year when I heard a story about it. Hose water when you're out working in the yard on a hot day has always tasted pretty good. But until I know what my hoses are made of, I won't drink it that way any more.
