It was too expensive and I have tried everything under the sun, just about. However, it tastes great, and my mom kept giving me gallons of it, and one day I drank a load of it, and for the next 2 weeks I was thirsty unlike I have ever been, and I felt great, but this thirst was unreal!! My hubby had it too, and in two weeks he was pooping out this black sludge, which i understand is quite normal in that amount of time for many men with "back problems". I noticed that my back wasn't slipping out like every darn time I moved.
So, I have given you some truth, what you do with it is your business, but we did buy the smaller machine (501) where you pay $50 a month, and we adore this little machine, everyone that comes over asks for it, it tastes so ... wonderful? The body loves it.
I also have a distiller, but only use this for taking my iodine.
Bleach water / chlorinated water? I don't understand why people don't understand that whatever kills organisms kills us too! It isn't even natural so that our bodies can break it down...................it just sits in our fat or in our joints and eats away what good we have left! Chlorine kills. We are, after all, alive!
