Questions & Answers for Great Value Great Value: Distilled Water, 1 Gal

Question

Is the very strong chemical odor and taste normal?

We recently purchased Great Value Distilled Water with a best buy date of 03-12-15

The water was bottled with water sourced in Spanaway, Washington by Richardson Bottling Company, Tacoma, WA

This water had a strong chemical smell, similar to wet paint or a very strong plastic.

We have never smelled or tasted such a strong smell in any other water or liquid we've ever purchased in a HDPE 2 (milk jug) type container.

Drinking water contains various trace minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Distilled water tastes differently due to the removal of such minerals.

It is hard to tell where or how any company that sells "purified" or (distilled) water treats the water they put out. There should not be any kind of smell or taste from a sealed container. If you smell or taste anything from a bottle of distilled water, return it immediately to where you got it and try another bottle while a manager of the store watching, open another bottle and smell it and even taste it...if the second bottle smells and tasts the same try a different brand and and then go home and email or call the company that bottled the offending product and inform them.

The weight of a gallon of water plus packaging is well over 8 pounds. Shippping costs will quadruple the cost of the water. It's best to go to the local store and load up. What you save on shipping will add several gallons to your supply.

Walmart is not a wholesale merchandise distributor, so we do not intend our private label products be purchased from us in bulk and do not offer a discount on merchandise that is purchased in bulk. For assistance with a possible special order, please contact your local store and speak with a member of management.

We also suggest contacting Sam's Club for assistance in the possible purchase of products in bulk or intended for resale.

Where can I get a copy of the MSDS for this Distilled Water?

The water will be used in an industrial manufacturing setting. An MSDS for all materials used is required.

An MSDS is not required for potable water. There are no chemicals used in the process of distilled water.

If you need an analysis consult your lab.

Distilled water contains H2O with a pH of 7. Sometimes it is a bit acidic. Use baking soda to balance it.

For a physical copy of the MSDS we ask that you contact Walmart Hazardous Material Information Office at 479-277-6800, Option 2. You may also research MSDS sheets on line by visiting http://msds.walmartstores.com/applications/.

The best way to obtain that answer would be to get with your local store manager or the issuer of the food stamps. We cannot authorize since that would be handled on a different level.

Question

I use one gallon of distilled water daily in my air humidifier. One gallon bottle costs 88 cents. Can I get cheaper in bulk?

Shawn, have you noticed that your distilled water changes color, namely pink when it is heated in your humidifier? I used this water in my iron and it did turn pink! I am thinking that it is not a pure distilled water, but is contaminated with some chemical that would cause that reaction when it is heated. Buying a distiller would probably be your best way to get the price down. Look at A-1distiller.com. They say the price is around .38 per gallon. This would also give you peace of mind regarding a pure product, because you would be controlling everything about it. Check it out.

Distilled water ideally consists of only hydrogen and oxygen, with a completely neutral pH of 7. In reality, it almost always is slightly acidic, from 5.6 to just under 7, because the water absorbs carbon dioxide from the air. A gallon of distilled water can be made neutral by adding 1/8 tsp. of baking soda, a substance with a pH of 8. If you plan to store distilled water put it in glass containers. Plastic will leach.

answer 1
The only test result I have is that my old iron was replaced with a new iron from the manufacturer and when I used the Great Value Distilled Water from the Salt Lake Municipal Water Supply, the water turned pink when it was heated in my iron. That was proof enough for me that the water was not pure distilled water. When I replaced this water with a different brand the water did not change to a pink color. Needless to say , I did not use this brand of distilled water in my iron again. And I would not drink it either or use it to make 3% Hydrogen Peroxide that I would use internally. I do believe that it is either not steam distilled water or is nothing more than plain tap water that is full of many additives, and probably is the reason why it turned pink.

Factory-sealed containers of water have an indefinite shelf life, as long as they remain unopened and undamaged. The sell-by date is voluntarily and individually set by manufacturers to indicate the length of time that they believe the water will taste and smell fresh, rather than to indicate any issue of contamination or food safety.

I am thinking that it probably is not steam distilled, because it wouldn't have anything in it to cause the water to turn pink when I heated it in my iron, but because it turned pink, it obviously has something in it that changes the color of the water. I am thinking that it is probably just plain tap water from the Salt Lake Municipal Water Supply and that would probably have many chemical additives that would turn the water to a pink color. Imagine if you were drinking this water, as your source of pure water. It would probably be detrimental and at the very least taste bad or cause health problems in the long run.
