Hey Culligan Man!

Does anyone have bottled water delivery to their homes, like H&S or Culligan.

I went to buy a new filter for my GE fridge and it was $40, and it's didn't even last 6 months.

Hinckley & Schmidt has a salesman at Home Depot and I signed up for their service. It'll be about $12/month for cooler and 5g of water.

Anyone have any input? I only really drink water, and working from home I'd like to have something other than 'filtered', hard, tap water from Cary.

Do the math, I used to use hinkley. Then I talked to culligan and got a softner and drinking water system. Ya its a bit more up front but its good for everything. Even my clothes come out looking cleaner.

If I remeber correctly the whole system was 1800 bucks installed. and I used thier 6 months same as cash and paid it off in 4, I love using free financing to my advantage.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Water? I was brought up watching late night W.C. Fields movies with my dad. That stuff isn't any good for you. Never touch the stuff.

Yeah, you don't want to know what fish do in water

But, on the topic, I don't know. 5 gallons probably won't last more than two weeks, so I'd opt for a few more and go from there.

I've calculated 5g to be enough for just me, with the amount of time I am working from home or traveling for work.

You'll go through 5 gallons in a week if that's all you really drink.

OK, on a more serious note. I have a 110 gal. / day 4 stage reverse osmosis, DI filter set up in the house for my stupid fish. The whole thing cost me a little over $120 delivered from Ebay. It includes a tap and pressure container for the sink. You can splice it into the frig line too. With the amount you will use, the filters will last a year or so and the RO unit has a self cleaning function to extend it's life. IMO, it is the way to go.

Yea I have a cooler, we were renting it too, but then after having it for so long we could have just paid it off. They have ones for Sparkling Spring.. i think that is what we have...coolers for like $130? It's better to just buy a cooler... over time you will save.

Bikes can be replaced...people can't...ride safe!!

The Hinckley Springs cooler is $3/month for 36-months then you own it. They have a sweet black/stainless cooler for $5/month that matches my kitchen appliances.

I don't trust bottled water, who knows how long it's been sitting around, read the labels carefully, it isn't spring water, most nowadays is filtered water. I did what Tony did. The water in BArrington and using the Culligan system tastes better than any freaking bottled water I have had.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.
