For fun, super cooled water will turn instantly into ice.

I've experienced twice in my life, had a pitcher of water sitting in the garage when it was 20°F outside. Picked the pitcher up, and it was instant ice. 2nd time was while flying... To this day, I wonder why I was chosen to still be alive.

If you have tap water that filthy you have other problems in a very big way. You must have been listening to the Culligan adverts, which are as close to lies as they can get away with. I was trained as an environmental engineer if you want to question my expertise. The Culligan adverts lie in other ways, have you ever considered how stupid it is to remove Calcium and magnesium from your drinking water and add Sodium (which is supposedly bad for you). And TAKE Calcium/Magnesium pills at the same time??

That sounds too much like common sense, it can't be true!

Just read a Modern (meaning not written by Sir Arthur) Sherlock Holmes story "The Purloined Eggplant"
A necklace nicknamed the Eggplant necklace was stolen, Diamonds and a stone that resembles an eggplant. The necklace was sunk in a glass of punch. the punch was the same color as the "Eggplant" stone and the diamonds.. The ice in the drink.

Sherlock did not understand why the ice had sunk to the bottom But when he figured it out.. Well "Elementary" as they say.


Home is where I park it.

Use Reverse osmosis (RO) water. It has a membrane filter that will remove most of the dissolved solids ( minerals) I have an RO filter in my house and have debated installing on the RV but have not done it. The RO system is installed under the sink and has a separate small faucet on the counter. Most water you buy from kiosks is ROFiltered. Read the label on bottled water. Most is RO filtered .

As I understand it, if you freeze the water in one direction, if gives the gasses room to escape.

See here for one way to do this, he used regular tap water.

Sorry I'm on my phone, can't make it a click.

Guess I will need to give that a try when I get back from the next trip.

Looks like it works. I’m going to try this.

I’ll report back. Hold your breath.

Not sure of the point but boiling the water first, will help assure it is safer to drink.

My dad was a Culligan installer/field tech for 37 years before retiring....

I heard him say for years and years and years and more years.... Soft water was never meant to be drinking water.... I'm really surprised with your training that you didn't know that....

He always said soft water is a wonderful thing... But you can't drink it... You must add a RO unit or buy bottled water....


My 30 year old softener recently gave our... (parts are no longer available)... I had no problem shelling out the 3K for a new culligan.... But for drinking water my culligan RO is priceless...
