    The high TDS rate of true mineral water doesn't fit well with the current US market taste. Look into specialty/import retailers.

    The noobie asks, "What is TDS rate?"

    "Total Disolved Solids"...it is basically the mineral content measured in parts per million.

    Drinking Water (like Dasani, Aqua Fina, Deja Blue) has a TDS of around 35.

    Spring Water (like Ozarka, Mountain Valley Water) has a TDS of around 140.

    Mineral Water (usually an import) can be very high in TDS up to and beyond several hundred.

    Gerolsteiner is the only one that comes to mind. the TDS (in milligrams per liter) is 2527. I found that number on the www.finewaters.com site.

    Also, here's a site that explains the different types of bottled water in the US.

    http://www.mineralwaters.org/index.p...regulation/usa

    the minimum TDS for mineral water is 250.
