What kind of water should I add Third Wave Water to?Updated a year ago
Third Wave Water minerals should be added to any kind of "empty water." This includes distilled water, deionized water, reverse osmosis (RO) water, or water from a Zero Water filter.
Why empty water?
When you add minerals to any of these "empty waters" (water with little to no TDS), you are creating a unique, mineralized water. Some coffee makers actually recommend using distilled water to protect their machinery, but this will flatten your coffee.
Why not other types of water?
Using generic spring water, bottled water, or tap water is a gamble because you do not know what minerals at what ratios and quantities exist in the water. This is why we created Third Wave Water, to give you the exact minerals with the right ratios and quantities (150 total dissolvable solids). Adding our capsules to water with an unknown TDS content might inhibit the minerals from fully absorbing since our formula is based on being added to 1 gallon of empty water.
Where to find empty water:
Empty water can sometimes be found in the United States at the following locations:
- Grocery stores (Kroger, HEB, Whole Foods, etc.)
- Convenience stores (Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc.)
- Supermarkets (Target, Walmart, etc.)
