Time for a change in the drinking water habit? San Diego is a center for enterprises that sell original fresh water in a bottle.
Tap water drinkers might not actually lose anything by drinking from the tap. Many say there is no stomach sting that needs to get taken out. The water found to have coliform bacteria might not be the most pleasant. But, a member of the organization that watches over San Diego water quality, Coastkeeper, found a redeeming value in drinking the nearly free tap water every day. It is "safe, clean, and inexpensive," they said.
Those who like their water more pure, buy purified water off the shelf. Bottles are filled with tap water that was cleared up. But, there is disagreement in San Diego on water. Fear of tiny bacteria makes many devoutly stick to the fresh bottled water without the fluoride purification taste that is priced at $1.50 a bottle in the market. If the stomach shock is not too much to overcome, the taste gives a local a real reason for making their water deals with the labeled bottle sellers.
Grocery stores like Vons offer enough brand name bottled water to make drinking from the labeled bottles mainstream. Healthy water has become an example of the standard health deal made in San Diego. Product stocks have even built up in many places across San Diego drinks in cups, or glasses, get sold to customers.
CostCo offers discount spring water bottled in Tuscany, Italy. Customers can smile at the 25.3 ounces sold at the basic price. Diners, though, can not resist a chance to drink fine water at a restaurant table, and have a conversation.
Taking a bottle between the finger and the thumb is a habit enjoyed by the hungry diners that visit Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill in Mission Hills on India Street for fresh fish taken from the day's delivery, and marinated. Just east of Lindbergh Field, and south of Washington Street, bottled water is a standard menu item.
Believers in health that is full life count on local water mixes they can carry home.
For those who do not doubt water, the pure kind taken from a spring on Palomar Mountain and transported in stainless steel trucks, makes the city malaise go away, and energizes the health, there is an Aqua Mantra sold by one of the Dana Point company's local vendors. Ease of Mind, and zero additives, give the drinkers more than the served diner's luxury.
Coins pay for a bottle labeled with the mantra "I AM HEALTHY".
