    More chance of winning every lotto for a year than leigonaires.
    More common in run off from AC units.

    RO is the art of removing minerals from your water. Drink it and your body will stary osmosis -- putting the minerals back in the water. I have the odd swig here and there but regular as a drinking water source it's gonna do more harn than good.

    But when I started I used a water purifier under my sink and it was supposed to go on a tap for you to drink, that went through reverse osmosis is it different to what is in your van?
