Water Myths #2: A Certain Type of Water is “Dead Water”

This is our series of articles dedicated to cutting through the misinformation and scams about water.

Another ridiculous claim made by people selling their latest and greatest (and of course patented) magic water machine is that their machine produces “living water” and that other types of water, such as distilled water is “dead water”.

So here’s the truth: water is not alive. Water is the primary component of life, but it’s not alive itself. There is NO form of water that is alive and there is no form of water that is dead. There is no machine that can make water alive or dead. Water is a molecule of hydrogen and oxygen atoms.

So whenever you hear anyone making a silly claim that certain water is “living water” and that other water is “dead water”, run away. You are hearing a sales pitch from either someone who doesn’t know what he’s talking about or worse, they know exactly what they are talking about and they are intentionally misleading you.

The fact is that water is water and the only difference between ocean water, raw sewage and pure distilled water are the contaminants that are in the water. Put pure water into your body and avoid long-term exposure to harmful chemicals that are showing up in an increasing number of water supplies. Our premium water distillers are the best at cleaning your water.

    Isn’t it unprofessional and disrespectful to discredit competition? If a company has to go to those lengths make a sale it reflects the integrity of that business…

      We agree 100%, unfortunately, there is a lot of bad information out there mixed in with the good. There are some water companies that use scientific terms to market their products, misleading the public on truth. If a company is giving you good solid facts about water and are able to provide laboratory test results or scientific studies to back up their claims, please listen to them. We would recommend that you do a quick check against this reference list, http://www.chem1.com/CQ/gallery.html. This list was compiled by a retired chemistry professor who wants to share the ‘truth about water’ to the public. After much research, these are the folks or types of water he would caution you to stay away from.

      We want to make sure you have all the information you need on water to make the best decision for your family. We are confident that when you know more about water you will want your loved ones to drink distilled and when that time comes, we encourage you to choose a high quality US-made water distiller that will last for many years, most likely decades!

      If you have any further questions, please feel free to conact us at 1-800-875-5915 ext.3 or info@mypurewater.com. Thank you for your input!

    From my research the term “dead water” refers to water that has been processed i.e reverse osmosis where by all the minerals (magnesium,zinc,fluride,sodium etc) and bacteria and viruses gave been removed hence the term dead water

      That is generally what people are referring to when they say “dead” water but again water can be neither alive or dead and this is just clever marketing to make you think that Distilled water is bad for you. It is not “dead” water and the term has no real meaning.
