Should You Trust Your City's Tap Water?Feb 27, 2020
the pepsi challenge except with tap
wateri don't feel great man niko often when we run out of
wateryou are known to fill it up with tap water without telling anyone. three times a day the tap water is safe as if the tap water is not safe you could sue the
cityfor a lot of money I don't think it's safe I agree it's not sure why it's not safe why don't you I think the tap water is safe. What's that damn white scab hanging near the mouthpiece?
trusting the system it's not like there's a latent poison sitting in our water like it first flows through the pipes all the time so it's not like it's just sitting there but hey what if the pipes are a little rusty?
You get some iron rust in
yourwater I'm not drinking any rust juice that's kind of gross I've seen a video of someone pouring the tap water they set the tap water on fire there is methane in the tap water jake jake what you drink tap water sometimes not very often because i don't
trustit's healthy you don't i don't trust the
citynot the city of los angeles now so this is what i do trust the system I trust the water is fine. I don't like the taste of tap water, especially here in Los Angeles. water from these big chunks why do you think every day some of it is stolen actually some of it is uh sort of like Nestle takes water from public springs so it's our water collectively as Americans , this site is on public land, does Nestle have water rights? of course they paid 100 20 years ago for it they haven't been charged and they're not paying market rates reselling our water we own to us at huge margins while the company takes about 30 million gallons each year they pay only 524 dollars for the us forest service for the permit in this case our public agencies have dropped the ball not all bottled water companies i'm a little with ren it's a matter of taste here at the studio tastes like garbage white water it comes from reclaimed water sources or fresh water sources and goes into a water treatment facility, goes through billions of regulations, people like to try it and all these things, and finally goes down the pipe that's made metal so you're right there could be dirt or some stuff getting into our building it's like I don't think there are things that are really harmful but you can try that road that road it was water i think i'm going to do whatever you put
yourmoney where your mouth is let's do a blind taste test and go Get some water test kits.
I'm down and I'll know this is the junk water, dude. This is the fucking inverted triangle. What does that mean? That will be the purified water not through our normal jugs and then a square for that square water that square is ok guys water is ready this is the first one up here it's a triangle I'm pretty sure I know which is which actually I don't like it as much as I like this one uh-huh take this one, what's that? I think this one is so good interesting I could be completely wrong but that's what I think water tastes like this one feels softer and that's a weird right triangle and which one do you like best? triangle and a square this and then the square which one did you like best next victim here we go that's definitely tap water which one do you like best obviously this one is ok did you make that decision so well? which I think this is the tap water and I think this is the filter. my life just guessing which is which which no yeah I don't know opinions have come and gone there are almost so many huh I like this one better ok I think it's because it's filtered and this would be touched dammit , but you don't know what a tone is. so i just had a cough drop but i think this is the i think this is the tap water ok all right square triangle some of you preferred triangle some of you preferred square here on The studio tastes like garbage like me.
I don't even like seeing my hands in that sink up there. I'm down and I'll know this is the garbage water, dude. This is the damn runoff. The square is touched. drinking tap water is not necessary i mean i just got out of here what did they do to me? i don't like tap water in my mouth like i said below i'll drink it if it tastes good like i used to be called awkward man in high school because i brought aquafina to school every day now i really have to drink tap water n or we can't choosing our destinations what kind of what can i do more friend i can't i'm guys i'm moving i'll say i liked the tap water much more than i expected we could all tell the difference no matter which ones you prefer we could all tell you there's a difference yeah we
shouldtest the water and see if the reason it tastes different is bad for our health here we go we ordered this on amazon so let's see how much schmutz is in our water that's what this is going to tell us how pure is the water normal tap water is 200 to 300 parts per million tall tap or mineral springs 400 500 is the us EPA maximum contaminant level here we go thats filters oh thats what what we're doing okay this is 65. 65 parts per thousand okay 65. drop the air that's some good water right there tap water 122 parts per million 224 224 now we
shouldadd a brita and see what it does is that it's still half the max, yeah max, I mean it makes you think you're like Because with meat production or even peanut butter, it's like the max amount of roaches, the max amount of feces and blood, how do you want it We're marginally acceptable according to the backbone of the janky la center, so I think what we could do at the end of all this, by the way, is we could send a sample of our tap water for a real test, now we are going to go the extra mile trying a basic brita carbon filter and going even further a countertop reverse osmosis filter the best money can buy plugged in yeah generally everyone should know how it works a brittle, water is poured on top, goes through a carbon filter, comes out the bottom and is drinkable, so you plug it in.
I'll show you the filters on this side it's a four stage filtration system so the first two filters are carbon and then they go through reverse osmosis and put a different type of carbon through the final clean drinking water up here and then water gray here you have du mped well let's do it it's doing it's actually pretty fast it sucked up a ton so from what i've heard brita filters only clean about five percent this supposedly cleans about 90 of your water. Let me give you some of the swirl ready to clean water looks like 180. so it worked better than uh 5 but not much better some high grade military water 42 42. yeah that's like 80 it's like straight 80 yeah what it just so happens it tastes like good water even though i'm gonna be honest this water tastes so much better than the sprinkler this is the gray water this is the rejected water from the reverse osmosis filter oh it doubled that makes sense , makes absolute sense, it's all the water rejected from the reverse osmosis drink. that water and it's that meat that it's like it just tastes a little more mineral it's vitamin water you prefer this to the real thing it's like aquafina where they add minerals for flavor you're crazy you're converted it's a convenience One time, it's like I like the Tasty water but I'm totally fine drinking tap dude there's cups in here supposedly if I put on a diet the Dr Pepper in the reverse osmosis filter will come out as clean water pour it all out we can pour another can. there's more dr pepper is working yeah it's probably really hard on the filters though oh I'm really curious dr pepper has lowered the filter down to 20 parts per million wait that's better than yeah because that was in the tap water the water they used to make dr pepper was already filtered when they made dr pepper cheers i dont know what to think about this my brain tells me it should taste like dr pepper but its not crazy its just water in conclusion still it's not complete just joking in a mild conclusion i think we should send a test of our tap water so they actually test it in a real place and can tell us what's in it but in the meantime with confidence our big jug blue and our type of tap water tastes the same this brita filter doesn't really filter the water much it just changes the taste it definitely filters the water and definitely changes the taste but with that being said the next time we run out of water we just fill and you're big blue jugs and put it in there yeah i'm going to put a link down below for this guy the bretta the water we have links on the water dept y'all can do your own research with some links provided i found also a uh this is an expensive filter , if you want it 100% filter we have a coupon code below so you can save a hundred bucks so the biggest thing I was missing in all that water experiment was I wanted to taste some legitimately bad water and what best way to taste that hunter lake after it's been raining what happened was like it rained all day oh look at this look how disgusting you're gonna do a taste test wrinkle free ok let's try this water wait is that straight from the puddle is straight from the puddle to there and then shake it up a bit huh it ain't that dirty how many wait? so if it's just big flakes of dirt that aren't going to change, it's probably mostly the dissolved minerals in the water that are going to change, don't, yeah there's no way I'm drinking this. oh you want me to swallow it yeah a street juice homie feel like i just drank some street meat jam homie if you show up tomorrow with an extra arm i don't feel too good man , my stomach is upset, I am going to refill my purified water and enjoy the rest of my day
