+1 and then stay away from that LFS.
Did you live in Oregon before 1998?
If not then you've likely shopped in a Kroger. Also known as Fred Meyers
You got me there. We did have Fred Meyer
There was a long line of people buying water behind me. Some, of not all, must’ve put that into their tanks and lost some anaimals. I mean >2ppm ammonia is crazy high
I'm in Houston and curious which LFS was it?
Distilled water, like RODI, should have 0 TDS. If concerned about pH in distilled, you can aerrate it to exchange dissolved c02 and normalize pH.
Publix has world class fried chicken!!
I get my water from an lfs, most of the time I don't have a problem. On the rare occasion that I do I mention it to them and they take care of it quickly. I trust em but I do check the water once in a while to make sure, They're ppl and they make oop's as much as we do. Last time I had a phosphate problem that I traced to the water. They were quick to change out all their filters and gave me free water on my next trip. Tell them before you cross they off.
What, no Costco???
As confirmed by the size of the people ordering it!
I would demand a refund and also a free refill that they have to test in front of you for your troubles. You spent your time which is worth money plus gas to go to the LFS and buy the water!
Getting salty with the front man of the store because the kid in the back made a mistake never makes for a good relationship with your LFS.
I wish mine were only 11 miles away! We live way out in the country so it takes us 20 minutes just to get to Walmart. The closest LFS is nearly 23 miles... all the way to the other side...
Man what is moo juice? I am familiar with Publix. I lived in Miami for a while. But now I am back home where I belong. In Chicago we have Jewel, Petes, and that all worth naming. Ooh wait this thread is not for a grocery store its about water hmmm. ok.

Dang I guess I’m just spoiled living in one of the largest US cities lol. Driving more than 5 miles for anything feels like an eternity
Yea... but I’ll travel 23 miles before I move to the city. Country living is the best. We have deer, raccoons, bunnies, hawks, foxes.... I love “the middle of nowhere.” We don’t live at the end of the world, but we can see it from the backyard!
I stand corrected. Today I measured my demineralised water and it had a pH of 12! I poured some into a glass and left it there while I went to work. When I returned it was 11! How is this possible??
TDS reads 008
I posted this earlier in this thread, but the simple answer is that you can’t effectively measure the pH of purified water.
This is a quote from Randy Holmes-Farley
Leaving the water out exposed it to CO2 and as noted above, with purified water small changes can make a big difference.
