    There is also a Glacier R.O. machine and a Aqua Fill R.O. machine near the Ralph in my place. I just tested the purity of the water from Galcier RO machine. Unfortunately, the reading is 35ppm I will try the Aqua machine soon.

    35 ppm is definitely not great but far better than most tap water; and, as mentioned before, the machines vary a bit and are usually much better after their weekly maintenance. One machine went from around 26.4 ppm to 3.2 ppm after servicing . . .

    I just tried this water out! There's a machine less than 5min away and at 25 cents per gallon, that is WAY cheaper than buying it at $1.10 at my grocery store haha. Also, I was surprised to find that the ppm was only 3! Amazing!
