    Default Bottled spring water

    I was on a job last year just after rip out and just before fit-out the builder bit bringing building up to regs, and had to joint some ceilings and it was a big empty shell. No windows only 2 doors open, sun on a metal roof me on a scaffold sweating buckets.

    Time for a mix, the tap was miles away down stairs along corridors hope you get the idea well there was this storage area that was being cleared so in boxes was loads of out of date spring water so I grabbed a box and mixed up with this was a nice light mix smooth and went on a treat just goes to show that quality of water makes a diffrence. I wouldn't want to buy it though.

    Out of date spring water still has no chlorine or fluoride type chemicals like mains tap water. A sparkling spring water result would have been interesting?

    I remember doing a job in the wilderness of the Scottish Borders where the owners drew their water from the ground but it had an orange tint resembling piss that contained iron. The mix had to be used the same day and was awful to work with if left overnight. We ended up finishing that job with ready mix.
