Unfiltered Fervor: The Rush to Get Off the Water Grid - The New York Times


27 bookmarks. First posted by gmakris 23 days ago.


Start-ups like Live Water in Oregon and Tourmaline Spring in Maine have emerged in the last few years to deliver untreated water on demand. An Arizona company, Zero Mass Water, which installs systems allowing people to collect water directly from the atmosphere around their homes, began taking orders in November from across the United States. It has raised $24 million in venture capital.

Driven by misgivings about how tap water is treated, start-ups are turning to springs and the air for purer sources — and drawing an elite audience.

Perhaps one of the craziest things I’ve read about all year, but over the last several years I’ve noticed more and more water stores in strip malls. I think this is just the beginning.

you're a conspiracy theorist

Pure water can be obtained by using a reverse osmosis filter, the gold standard of home water treatment, but for Mr. Singh (né Christopher Sanborn), the goal is not pristine water, per se. “You’re going to get 99 percent of the bad stuff out,” he said. “But now you have dead water.”
He said “real water” should expire after a few months. His does. “It stays most fresh within one lunar cycle of delivery,” he said. “If it sits around too long, it’ll turn green. People don’t even realize that because all their water’s dead, so they never see it turn green.”
Mr. Singh believes that public water has been poisoned. “Tap water? You’re drinking toilet water with birth control drugs in them,” he said. “Chloramine, and on top of that they’re putting in fluoride. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but it’s a mind-control drug that has no benefit to our dental health.” (There is no scientific evidence that fluoride is a mind-control drug, but plenty to show that it aids dental health.)
