OB WATER STORE AND COVID-19 Update 5/25/2020
ALKALINE AND PURIFIED VENDING MACHINES OPEN 24/7
INSIDE STORE TEMPORARILY CLOSED Until 6/2
A staff member will be present periodically through the day to sanitize and repair vending machines and test water quality.
At the constant urging of many customers that work in hospitals and for the concern we have for our employees and the families they go home to we will close the inside of the store temporarily.
Also the fact that gloves and other necessary supplies are becoming harder to get makes it harder to handle bottles safely:
This is the hardest decision we have ever had to make.
If the vending machine malfunctions for you please contact us by email which is listed below or our Facebook page and we will make arrangements with you.
We will continue to work as best we can with community and neighborhood groups to help bring water to those deeply in need.
We will re-open inside store hopefully soon. We will post this info on our facebook page, webpage, google, and yelp listing.
Any unforeseen issues or repairs to vending machines will be posted on our facebook page immediately and our webpage.
Please use clean bottle in vending machine.
Please remember to wipe/sanitize outside of bottles including top and handle at home before using bottle or putting in dispenser.

Oxidants can work as a disinfection agent. O3 is created organically in the earth’s atmosphere when O2 gas is warmed through the sun’s powerful UV rays. As the ozone falls back to the earth’s surface it cleanses our breathing air.

OB Water Store In San Diego And TDS
We Monitor TDS On A Daily Basis
What Is TDS?
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are the total amount of mobile charged ions, including minerals, salts or metals dissolved in a given volume of water, expressed in units of mg per unit volume of water (mg/L), also referred to as parts per million (ppm). TDS is directly related to the purity of water and the quality of water purification systems and affects everything that consumes, lives in, or uses water, whether organic or inorganic, whether for better or for worse.
In general, the total dissolved solids concentration is the sum of the cations (positively charged) and anions (negatively charged) ions in the water. Parts per Million (ppm) is the weight-to-weight ratio of any ion to water
A reading of 2 or 3 is far lower than what typically is found for purified drinking water in the United States. Our TDS levels are checked daily and kept in a log that we have posted in the store and outside at our purified and alkaline water vending machine. Purified water is not mineral free but with TDS levels at 2-3 it is pretty close.
Here in San Diego the TDS levels are typically just under 400 and can vary depending on if you live in the north or south counties of San Diego, so a 400 reading has a lot more mineral content han a reading of 2-3. Below is a reading a customer took at their home in downtown San Diego.
While 386 is below the maximum allowable amount of 500 (per the EPA), it is still higher than the national average in the Untied States for household tap water. So why settle for that when you can have the best tasting water with the lowest TDS levels in the entire county.
Our TDS Log Sheet
We monitor our TDS and water quality on a daily basis for both our purified and alkaline water and keep a log for our customers to view both inside and outside at our vending machine. Below is a link to our page with current test results.
As you can see if you viewed our Test Results Page we have a consistent PH reading of 9.5 for our Alkaline water. Besides having a nice PH reading the water tastes GREAT! Come on by and give it a try. Besides our consistent PH readings, our low TDS count is very consistent and is an important aspect required to have the best drinking water in San Diego, come on in and have a taste and see for yourself how good it is.
