My husband said "honey, water is water" until he tried this. It really tastes different and it's great! Makes you want to drink more water. It's crowded on the weekends so go at off times. 70 cents a gallon!

Cancer lives in an acidic environment. Keep your ph at the right level to help with so many issues. Carlsbad mineral water is an easy accompaniment to a healthy lifestyle.

This is the most amazing water ever!! It is a must. I started drinking only this and started doing the alkaline flush that they recommend every day and I have really noticed a difference in my body. Would 100% recommend this to everyone.

We did not do the spa but hear it is great. We get our water here every week and it is worth the stop. You can get a 5 gallon jug and fill it yourself every week. Everyone agrees it's the best water anywhere.
