Clean Drinking Water feat Primo Self-Service Water Refill at Walmart

Well, the water coming from the tap in the town I just moved to, smells ‘funny’. Not humorous nor a joke. It smells noxious in the apt complex where I just moved in Statesboro, Georgia, USA. It has a sulfur smell. I googled Statesboro’s water quality and found this article which talks about some serious contaminants. I immediately went on alert to find a solution, other than purchasing plastic water bottles en masse, and I don’t feel like the baggage of purchasing a 50 gallon water jug and filling it, with a bicycle. I also didn’t sense that a Portable Pitcher such as a Brita water filter was going to tackle all the contaminants.

I went to buy water, which I rarely do, an almost 1 Gallon ‘plastic’ jug, Deer Park spring water. I’ve typically drank tap water, and have had the fortune of drinking filtered water from the refrigerators in the last several places I lived.

Then I googled :  drinking water machines, purified water refill stations. 

And discovered that a local Walmart super center has a water refill center. Friends don’t let friends go to Starbucks or Walmart. I’m pretty appreciative that this one hosts the Primo refill stations. I bicycled there yesterday with the empty container and yes, it exists. I filled the jug i brought, for free. (I think the machine has a malfunction 🙂 Gonna be cycling there almost every day, in fact, I already ran out of the gallon I brought home yesterday. Will look for big glass jugs, and continue to ride the 15 min. (2.6 mi) each way to bring home odor free, clean drinking water.  So the water filtration system at Walmart is through Primo

Really glad that I had that hunch to google, and then found that the store I avoid at all costs, is the one with the capacity to host the Primo machine! It seems to be good.

Water is life.

  1. I’m glad your industriousness paid off in free, freshwater. I think of the third world women balancing jugs over many miles for a large family. I am fortunate to have a refrigerator and a source of “pure” running water. Carol, have you blogged about the scarcity of clean, cheap water and its conservation yet?

    I believe that you will have more job opportunities coming up, thanks to our new government. There must be positions out there that would make a good match for your skills. You will become the expert at finding them.

    Loren, no, I hadn’t thought of blogging about the scarcity of clean, cheap water…though I have perhaps mentioned in a blog that Nestlé was purchasing water in California (and other parts of the world, like Bolivia) then charging the locals to drink it. I could consider doing such a blog; which is a worldwide affair. I do hope to implement my language skills in work. Thanks for the suggestion re: the new government. My digesthis blog presently talks about fascism, racism and environmental terrorism (injustice).
