If you haven’t noticed, there have been a few new changes at our water store in town. Penny Gomard is our new store manager and she is inviting everyone to come in and visit. Penny is a “home grown” Molokai resident and will be able to answer and assist you with all your water needs.

If you are not currently using Mountain Slope Water as your drinking water source, stop in and get your free sample of purified water. Our purification equipment produces F.D.A. certified water and we purify it fresh everyday.

Did you know that not all water is created equal? In fact, there are very few places on earth that can provide “purified” water naturally. By definition, purified water has less than 10 parts per million of Total Dissolved Solids. Dissolved solids are classified organic and are things like, lead, zinc, salt; heavy metals. Most dissolved solids are not recommended to be consumed; in water or food.

Spring water is not purified water. Most brands of spring water are not much better than your tap water, although, each one has its own unique flavor, as the mineral content varies from brand to brand. Drinking mineral water as a means of a nutritional supplement is not a proven source. Fresh fruits and vegetables and a healthy diet is how your body acquires nutrients. Water is intended to hydrate tissue, eliminate toxins and move nutrients throughout your body. What’s in your water?
