    True... Maybe hose water then distilled water? This picture is only 1/3 of the story!

    It's very good water as in it's clean, pollution clean A lot of places, the tap water is usually hard water to varying degrees and may not be potable as it's not treated.

    I'm not talking about some desolate country, regions in the US, W European countries where it is not recommended to drink straight from the tap. Hard water is also quite common.

    All of a sudden, this turned into a water quality research thread. XD

    Reverse osmosis does an amazing job in cleaning water up. In fact, I suspect Singapore's water is one of the closest to distilled water.

    Reverse osmosis gives you nearly 100% pure water I think... it's clean enough for the demanding wafer fabrication plants.
    they had to add salt to it before being bottled for drinking... I remember seeing sodium chloride or something like that on the label of the newater bottles in addition to pure water.

    I remember back in secondary school, the first time I drank newater it was a new taste experience.

    Well nothing tasted like that and we were told that it was too pure to taste like tap/mineral water. It kind of gives you a tingly sensation on your tongue at that "pure" after-taste can last for a few minutes. Do they add salt now?

    Maybe we're accustomed to newater ever since it was introduced to our public water supply so we can't tell a big difference anymore.
