Yup. I do. I do have a purifier for my water because I live in a town that is situated on old lead mines; the water can get pretty, well, orange is the nicest word. I don't buy water as a general rule. We just developed a taste for sparkling mineral water on a trip to Slovenia, so we buy it as a treat. But the gallons we dring every day come from the faucet.

Okay Caine.. I'm calling you on this one. I have a nice hottub in the sun room, and thought 140 sounded a little hot. Here's the URL and a part of the text... I think I keep my hottub around 106F so I can enjoy it for around 20 ~ 30 minutes.

Warm Water - 115 to 120°F. The water is touchable but not hot.
Hot Water - 130 to 135°F. The water is too hot to touch without injury.
Poach - 160 to 180°F. The water is beginning to move, to shiver.
Simmer - 185 to 200°F. There is movement, and little bubbles appear in the water.
Slow boil - 205°F. There is more movement and noticeably larger bubbles.
Real boil - 212°F. The water is rolling, vigorously bubbling, and steaming.
So unless a typo is involved, you have yours set to between being injured, and being poached I assume you *are* human, right?

BTW, you might find the website name amusing.

Here is a nice one...

1 qt. cold water
1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced (seeded or non-seeded "English" cucumber)
3 sliced lemon

Put ingredients in a pitcher and sitr.
I work in a day spa and we make our waters this way in a big 'ole jug:

ice + water + 3 sliced oranges + 2 sliced lemons + 1 whole cucumber sliced

*we don't peel the cucumbers and i don't know it that makes a difference in taste. enjoy!
