    and fwiw, the water in aruba goes thru a very complete distilling process.
    my husband says the water from the tap is distilled water.

    maybe you could check about if my husband is correct or not.

    also too rob o, one of our members in aruba right now is a civil engineer specializing in water. he pops on this forum at least once a day so i will message him to read the thread and respond. he is the end all and the be all to water knowledge.
    To the best of my knowledge, the water is not distilled (an evaporative process); the water is desalinated via a membrane process, reverse osmosis.

    Regardless, you should not assume that the tap water is distilled quality because the distribition system (pipelines from treatment plant to tap) would not be intended to deliver distilled quality water.

    I thought that if you let the water sit out without a cap on it for 24 hours it then becomes distilled....?

    Many thanks to all of you who have posted info for us regarding the distilled water. We will try Ling and Sons and then the other grocery stores. We are counting the minutes until we arrive on Saturday
