Is bottled natural/spring/mineral water, available off the shelf in
supermarkets etc., able to be used without boiling?  ie. is it bacteria-free
at bottling?  What about the refill stations - if you make sure you sanatise
your container can you rely on that water being bacteria free also?  Cheers,
Michael.



Re: Bottled/Spring Water
i've used both (off the shelf and refill water) with no problems.  as you
mention, sanitize your refill container just to be on the safe side.  the
refill water i buy is MUCH cheaper ($0.25/gal), and comes from a reverse
osmosis filtering process.

Spring water is never certified to bee without micro-organisms, it's tested
to be sure it's not harmfull to your healt but no more. A guy told me that
he once opened a 5 gal. container and found algea under the lid.

Re: Bottled/Spring Water
I have not used refill water because from the last five years, I am using custom
water bottles by Samantha Springs (http://www.samanthasprings.com). They provide
quality spring water at affordable prices.
