u/DilshadZhou · 73 pointsr/leagueoflegends

It bothers me too. We follow the players back to their player lounges and half of them go grab a disposable water bottle. There is one of these ( ) in every office and public space in my city. Hell, airports around the world are now banning single use water bottles. Riot should absolutely be on this. I'm sure their offices in LA have bottle stations.

u/Semen-Thrower · 71 pointsr/canada

A lot of Canadian university campuses today use something like this, which fills water bottles but can also allow direct drinking. You can still drink without a bottle.

u/introdus_nanoware · 7 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

There are food-grade dehumidifiers that are certified safe to drink from, but if it's not one of those it's likely to have components such as lead pipes that could introduce undesirable substances into the water.

The ones that are safe to drink from are generally called "atmospheric water generators". Here are some examples:

I assume you're talking about this.

It's way too expensive for what it does, and will leave you frustrated with what it can't do.

You need to heat water to specific temperatures - there are a few good kettles that will do that for a third the price.

You need a vessel to steep your leaves in. Do you need it to be a liter and a half? If you did, you would not want that comparatively tiny basket, which would keep the leaves too tight to steep effectively.

Do you need to agitate the tea leaves as they steep? Never.

Do you want to have any control over the process? This will deny you that control.

Don't buy this.

So what should you buy?


  • Get a filter if your water is nasty. I'm using this because it produces a neutral tasting water, with soft texture.

  • Get an electric kettle with temperature control. I'm using this because of its precision spout.


  • Decide how much tea will be drunk by one person at at time. A mug? A gallon? An ounce? Your answer will guide your options.

  • Decide how many servings you are likely to prepare with it. Drink alone? Serving 5?

  • Do aesthetics or price pay a significant role? There's much we can advise you on, and if you can narrow down these questions, we'll be very helpful.
u/OrganicVandal · 5 pointsr/soylent

I have always had heartburn - for over 15 years. Drinking Soylent did make it worse. I was taking Zantac 150 in the morning and another at night. Something changed about 4 months ago though. I seriously have no heartburn anymore and I can eat whatever pretty much. The only thing that changed is I started taking GNC Mega Men vitamin and started drinking alkaline water. I think that water is what fixed it.

This is what I use for the water. When I started, I was drinking over 120oz a day for a month. Now just drink maybe 50 to 70 oz a day.

u/WizardOfIF · 3 pointsr/waterbros

You can find them pretty easily for around $1000. Amazon Link

I paid about $400 for the base and $200 for the filling station. I paid the builder $200 to run the plumbing and I spent about another $60 in parts to get it all connected.

u/Sir_Henk · 3 pointsr/CasualUoG

To me all water here in England so far tastes bleh, but after a couple months I definitely got used to it.

If you're not bothered to wait till you get used to it, buy a water filter jug like this. You can keep reusing them and if it stops working after a while you can replace the filter (they last a couple months tho I think).

u/justajackassonreddit · 3 pointsr/homeowners

Except if you don't stay on top of the fridge maintenance, the dispenser breaks and you end up not having it anyway. And I know me, I wont stay on top of the maintenance. Instead I plan on installing one of these under my sink, piped up to one of these. That way Ive removed the failure point of the fridge door dispenser, and if the chiller ever dies, it's $350 for a total replacement. I bet the fridge repair would be twice that. Besides, a little ice water tap at my sink is just cool as hell.

2. Just because the smallest virus is 17 nm technically, and the more conventional "smallest" is 50nm, doesn't mean it's realistic to be scared of, especially if you don't live in an area where that virus is found.

3. Even if a filter allows the virus through, it still reduces it. Just because something is smaller then pore size, doesn't mean all of the virus get's through. I bring this up because while it is true the virus may still be present(Say for example you are using a 0.03 micron, and virus is 0.025 micron) doesn't mean you'll get sick. You need to have a specific viral load to be infected. Same thing applies to bacteria. Basically a single virus isn't enough to infect you. Why? Because it usually "dies"(Viruses aren't alive, get's destroyed/inactive etc etc) before it can get anywhere to infect, or before it has a chance to multiply. Which is why you can have sex with someone who has HIV, and not get HIV as long as they are on the newest drugs and are undetectable.

Technically the virus is still there, technically you're still getting some of it in you, but there isn't enough to actually infect you.

Yes it's good to be cautious, but jeez man a filter is cheaper then you thought it was, and way more convenient then even purifying tablets, because 1 takes prep and time to do, containers or bags to clean etc.

Also purifying tablets get rid of bacteria/viruses. Great. How does it handle heavy metals and other shit a filter will handle?

Just saying.

u/Gullex · 2 pointsr/Survival


Although, if you're hiking in the Rockies, I strongly doubt you need to worry about filtering viruses.

u/zak_atkinson · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I have one of these

Fill it up with water from my kitchen sink, tells me when to replace the filter unit (every month or so). It's nice because I also don't have to worry about limescale build up anymore.

u/vitalfox · 2 pointsr/HydroHomies
u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This PUR Water Filter is a great way to cut down on the use of water bottles, and makes water tasty! Where I live, the tap water isn't all that great, so it would be super useful!

Great contest idea!! xo

u/humanasfck · 2 pointsr/fasting

>Do you guys think i got dehydrated due to not taking elektrolytes?

This could be part of it, though I believe it may also be that you're drinking tap water.

I suggest you consider upgrading your water source. The chemicals in tap water are great for treating and recycling it, but they disrupt the body's natural function. I believe the main detriment comes from fluoride, which disrupts the brain's iodine receptors, and shifts our hormonal balances out of 'normal' (link) as well as puts additional stress on the kidneys (link).


" The regulations for the content of fluoride in food, drinking water and personal care products should be reviewed in order to reduce fluorite in the pineal gland that directly affects mental health, hormonal and antioxidant systems. " (link)

My water choices have been alkalized RO water or distilled.

Anecdotally, if I drink tap water I feel insatiable - like I will drink a pint and instantly still feel thirsty and want to drink another. If I drink pure water (such as either of the above options), I feel very satisfied and remain hydrated.

>Whats your opinion on fasting with a cold?

I find when I fast and have a runny nose, the symptoms will be more intense, though it seems to pass/heal much faster as well.

u/Notevenspecial · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

You are correct. I was thinking of a swamp cooler thermostat, that is line voltage:

You set it and forget it. It switches between speed, and controls the water as needed.

u/aaronkrob · 2 pointsr/ecobee

Thank you so much! I am about to embark on this project. If I already have a "MasterStat" thermostat installed and hooked up to my evaporative cooler, will I need the White Rodgers relay to hook up to an ecobee 3?

If so, where did you mount the rodgers box?

u/codexmas · 2 pointsr/ChineseLaserCutters

Really depends on how much you like messing around with tricks and tips to stay cheap.

I bought the CW-5000 a few months back for $485 shipping included from Amazon, pretty good deal really.

This thing is a beast, it's quite large but it works fantastically!

Being pretty much plug and play is of much greater value to me than cycling ice packs in bucket.

I tried the ice method with the K40 I started out with and it works but takes a fair bit of attention and planning.


Turn this thing on and it chills from 24C ambient to 18C in less than 10 minutes and keeps it there without issue on a 60W tube.

Not having to manage my cooler lets me do the things I actually want to do with the laser.

u/knotquiteawake · 2 pointsr/news

To survive sure. However, what water do you plan to cook your food with? Bathe/ brush teeth with? Flush the toilet with? A lot of prepackaged food requires water to rehydrate...
Most "preppers" will say 3 gallons per person per day. I think that's a bit high for most situations. Two seems a better balance. If you have a way to filter water you can maybe get away with one gallon.
I have one of these and a 5 gallon bucket.

I was also gifted with a two gallon Berkey filter system as well

Both have the ability to filter out microorganisms, bacteria, and viruses.

u/ThisNameRhymes · 1 pointr/malaysia

It was an attachment for regular water dispensers. So if you had something like this:

And was tired of buying those gallon sized water bottles all the time, you could get a filter instead. The thing plugged into the hole at the top that the water bottle would normally go into. So you could basically turn any regular water dispenser into a reverse osmosis filtered one.

u/bestmiddlename · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I really want this water dispenser its awesome because its bottom loading and then I can get away from buying bottles every few weeks. I don't really need it but it would be so awesome to have. plus if I have it I'm sure I would cut down leaving half empty bottles around the house.

u/Musicatronic · 1 pointr/wheredidthesodago

This is more useful than it seems. I saw these and manual pump versions being used in offices and homes in Asia where they use a lot of 15L drinking water bottles

u/Affirmcation · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I hope your crap day gets better. I'm sorry work was rough. I'll make you dinner when you come home. <3

This water pitcher is awesome and under 10 dollars. I'm gonna try to convert my grandma from spending money buying gallons of water all the time into using a filter pitcher. And this is the list I have it on. Thanks for giftingg!

u/schmag · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I was just going to ask if anyone tried using like an acquarium chiller or undersink drinking water chillers

this one comes in several cooling capacities even.


any idea if 3k btu/hr is enough to cool coolant for a 7 gallon ftss?

u/Chefintraining · 1 pointr/AskCulinary

One of my chef's liked using something like these. I can't testify how fast they worked other than we always had Clarified butter.

u/iheartheartaustin · 1 pointr/Plumbing

Maybe something like this but flow rate is 1 Gallon per hour.

u/Ephixia · 1 pointr/pics

It looks like Plumber's Paradise has them for only $854.

u/Judas_Feast · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions
u/philocto · 1 pointr/funny

Here's the one I purchased on Amazon:

I've had it for about a year and it's been working like a champ.

u/chemistree · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I havent seen a build like this but your post got me thinking:

Would a water cooler like this have enough power to cool at peak fermentation? Also would the pump be able to move a viscous glycol mix?

I know you said no DIY but I think it would need minimal modification. Fill the jug with a glycol mix if you want. Add a return line to the jug. Remove any output temp probe if you want the potential to reach below freezing (if it even has the power for that). Hook up the water button to a temp controller.

u/Pyronious · 1 pointr/AskCulinary

I reuse my oil multiple times - usally I get 4-5 uses out of it before it starts turning dark. Higher smoke point oils will last longer. I like peanut oil. Buy it at a restauraunt supply like Smart Food Service though, it's marked up too much in grocery stores.

These oil filters work out to $0.25 each and are perfect for straining the oil using a chinoise.

u/heartbrokenandok · 1 pointr/legaladvice

If you look at this report the Aquasana filters are NSF certified to remove TTHMs from your drinking water.

I found these ones (by searching for the models listed in the report) on amazon.

Any of the ones listed right there should match the model numbers in the report. I can't say that they are cheap up front compared wit the $20 Brita filters, but they will actually remove the TTHMs from your water, and can save you a ton of money over buying bottled water. You have no idea how long the water problem will go on, so you do take a risk in investing this much. But it will at least protect you from the worst.

u/gba_13 · 1 pointr/preppers

It's better than nothing but you can't filter fine particulate using a cloth.

You could use one of these as the hose.

u/skyroket · 1 pointr/preppers


If you have a bath tub, you can get a bath tub "bag" that comes with a hand siphon. There are a couple different brands. I have the "AquaPod Kit" off of this search result, but I doubt it matters much.

Even if you have a sewage line break nearby, placing residents under boil orders, you can use this to store contaminated water to filter/boil later if they shut the water completely off.

Which leads me to my other point: water filter. I live a stone's throw away from a lake out my back yard. Obviously this doesn't help me in winter when it's frozen over, but I got this Sawyer .02 micron filter kit, that you buy a 5-gal bucket to complete the kit. There are a couple different top dogs when it comes to water filtering. is a big one, but there are more economical alternatives, especially if you're only going to use it in an emergency. Even Sawyer has some smaller mini squeeze pouches that I got for the car emergency bags.

The water out of our lake had mosquito larvae and all kinds of shit in it. It was a little bit awkward to taste after running it through a towel, then the Sawyer 5-gallon bucket, but if you put it through a carbon filter like Pur or Brita, it's better. Also they sell those little flavor squirters in the drink aisle to flavor water. That makes it indistinguishable from tap water.


Obviously you are in an apartment, so your options are limited (I have a small portable generator I can wire into my house to power the furnace circuit, among others). I doubt your power would be out for a long time, so you might be able to get by with hand warmers and space blankets (or regular blankets, FFS). Also, I just almost impulse-bought this Zippo hand warmer that goes for 12 hours on one fill, and you can keep a refill can nearby or something.
