Where to get reverse osmosis water?

I do plan to get a home filter but the for next couple of months I want to buy reverse osmosis water. I presently get it from the place near where I use to live but now I've moved and wonder if the grocers carry reverse osmosis water? I have Safeway, Superstore, Save On Food nearby. I'm near the PNE on Renfrew Street and prefer a nearby location. I want to use one of those large refilleable containers for a water cooler.

  1. Don't drink RO water. Its lack of minerals is bad for you because it is basically corrosive to your body and will leach minerals away.

    Again, avoid it.

    1. Thanks for the info. I presently buy RO water with reintroduced minerals. I'm thinking about buying a counter top water filter since I can't find a closer source to buy something similiar.

      There are so many kinds of home filters and I've narrowed it down to an Aquasana.

      If there are other types of filters out there that you feel are better please let me know. Meanwhile I'm going to search through this site for filter water devices.

        I have pretty good tap water where I live, so I haven't worried about it. If you need to get rid of heavy metals or traces, that's fine, but you don't need to monkey around with the ionic population too much. Also, water is best for the body when it's slightly alkaline.

          don't know if they have reverse-osmosis system, but has various other type of water filters:

          Finlandia Pharmacy also sells something called a 'Kangen Water'
