    Just wanted to know what kind of water you vakers use in your glass. I remember using demineralized water back in the days. But now i have read somewhere that this water is chemically treated...

    'Demineralised water is chemically treated to remove all mineral salts. The problem is that this water quickly becomes acidic and can affect sensitive parts of your clothing steamer.'

    So after reading this, is demineralized water healthy to use in your bubbler? I used to boil demineralized water before putting it in my bubbler with some cranberry extract. That way i had nice warm water to vape through and get even higher...

    For me when i'm not in rush, i put my tap water in bottle , i leave the bottle opened to evaporate the chlorine for 1-2 days and it's ready. I thought it's maybe better to boil your tap water or freeze it before using in your glass, too lazy for do this. :chill:

    Turn on tap.
    Over fill glass
    Adjust water in glass
    Again over fill glass
    Realize close enough is good
    Pray not to drop glass on way to couch.

    I to use distilled water only. The Las Vegas valley has extremely hard water so to avoid hard water stains in my glass I use distilled water.

    Once i tried distilled water, never went back to tap, spring or purified water.

    Distilled water only!

    I gotta try some distilled water , my only problem is i am crazy about keeping my glass clean and after just 1 session using my NewVape flowerpot my glass is dirty again so i usually clean it after every session. Does using Distilled cut back on reclaim collecting in the glass ? Could get expensive if not. Was thinking of trying the cranberry extract added to tap water before this.

    Distilled water only. Warm or hot for maximum hydration of dry vapor.
    Dump after every session.

    No rezblock type additions as I dump after every session.

    Note that my glass stays 10X cleaner by having a degummed hemp fiber filter upstream.
    Without the hemp, the condensate (goo) gets all those nasty ABV micro particles/dust embedded.
    With the hemp filter , the goo becomes golden and pure, like all the lady FCers :)

    Distilled water is cheap insurance in the long run

    Distilled water is really cheap, $0.79 a gallon and most rig uses maybe 1 cup at most. I clean my glass each night through hot water and soap. Then i take like an oz of distilled water and wash out the tap water from cleaning and fill it up. 1 Gallon has lasted me a month so far as i just opened another gallon last night.

    I noticed distilled water help keep my incycler cleaner when using the Liger. It was much less stickier inside the torus with distilled. When I use the FP, i get these light brown chunks floating or sticking to the glass.

    Bottled mint water. It`s carbonated so i shake and bubble it a little first. Works fine and tastes fresh. I clean the glass after every use with softened water. If i have no mint water, i just use softened water from the tap, so no scale on the glass.

    I shouldn't think that it would help in that regard.

    I fill my own jugs at an RO filling station.

    I believe RO is RO.

    I use piece water, it claims its good for 3 weeks or 30 uses iirc though I typically only ever use it for a week at most before replacing as its pretty cheap and I can't imagine leaving it for that long is a really "healthy" thing to do... but it does such a good job of retaining smell and making it so hot water from a tap cleans it like new with just a quick shake (nothing will ever 'get stuck' to the bongs side and be a pain to remove) that I can't see myself going back to water.

    I hear you all... Anyone knows if it's good to use demineralized water? I'm slightly paranoid about the health of my lungs and shocked after noticing nobody uses demineralized water...

    I live in europe and distilled water is hard to come by. Is it ok to use demineralized water? Distilled water is not for sale in the shops i visited. Demineralized water is cheap and easier to come by here...
