Google this stuff. I just saw a new member of the website Neighbourly promoting it. Total quackery IMO.

a lot of these water modifiers or fads have a water filter in common with the treatment,

 

I believe a lot of what people perceive comes from the freshness that cant be found in their council water supply.

 

We live on a rural block with our own bore, A dozen friends from town bring out water vessels for drinking water.

Just read about this water and what a load of BS

You would have to be so gullible to hand over $$$ for one of these

I have a Pure Magic (rebranded Waterwise unit) USA made water distiller. It has a carbon filter as well. That works and makes sense.

I treat my drinking water by running it thru a coffee maker. If I do have to endure uncaffinatrd water then a tiny bit of salt makes it taste better.

the whole Bottled water industry is also down to marketing about how bad tap water is without much foundation in most cases, Rotorua being a case in point . People buy bottled water by the case full  and in most cases it comes from the same springs that provide Rotorua with its tap water and it is also treated the same as Rotorua tap water, yet people would rather pay money for it . again marketing on people fears can never go wrong.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

I treat my water by heating it to near boiling then adding gluten free, no fat, vegan all natural dried beans, makes it a rich dark brown colour but takes away that horrible water taste ;-)

Agree.

I'm in the city, but I have installed a rainwater system. Love having practically unlimited (especially at this time of year) great tasting, soft water.
