R/O water v/s Mountain Spring bottled water

With the new tank added at work, it is a major pain for me to bring in R/O water from home. Can I use bottled water with the same result??

Act on your impulses.. You'll feel good now & it will give you something to regret later!!

I would use jugs of distilled water before using bottled spring water. Or even better find one of those culligan etc RO machines and get a 5 gallon jug. You're never really sure what's in the mountain spring water or what has been added to it, but I have used it in a pinch.

Why not just invest the $150 or so and get a 3 or 4 stage RO unit. Then you dont have to deal with getting water all the time. THink of the RO unit as an investment where as the money your spending on the water is litrally going down the drain.
