    I live in arizona, and i am told that our drinking water isnt good for CPs..
    So i was going to the store to buy bottled water.
    everyone says "distilled"
    but all the bottles say "mountain spring", etc

    none say distillled..
    what brand is distilled that I can buy at the store to water my CP?

    they should say they're distilled. if they don't, I don't think they're distilled.
    mountain spring water probably has a lot of nutrients dissolved in it because while the big stuff was filtered out of the water by rocks and sand and stuff like that, there's still nutrients...

    it doesnt rain here much, so there goes the idea of collecting rain water.
    where can I find distilled water?

    well... that's what I think.... but I don't see how mt. spring water could be nutrient-free enough.
    maybe tap water? I use tap water. I've had my plants for a year and none have died.
    but I still want to know what's in it... anybody know how I could find out?

    I do know you should be able to call your water supplier and ask, and i think they are obligated to tell you.
    or send you something that says what is in it?

    that much I do know. lol
    I'll ask my local stores where I can get some distilled water.

    Patch, it is definatly available.. I went through much distilled water before installing my RO system here in Tucson. The best deals I found was Walmart when they go on sale for 50 cents a gallon... (off sale it's a buck wich is too pricy) Also, Fry foods commonly had it on sale. It takes some looking, but if you're gonna use a lot then look for the cheepest for sure!!!

    distilled water is not "drinking water"..
    you wont find it in those small drinking water bottles..
    its not really meant for human consumption..
    I have only seen it sold in gallon jugs.
    usually about 95 cents for a jug..
    most grocery stores should have it, look by the big gallon jugs of drinking water..there should be a few jugs of distilled in there somewhere.
