Anyway this is the first year I joined to buy their water filter. So far like feel no difference after using the water haha.
    For me water just need to be clean from dirt and bacteria and all living micro-organisms not too much of the other good stuff. Trouble is there's just too many brands and models around and each claiming to be better than the other. Anyway I think its time for me to settle with something like the eSpring la.

The filter is 4.5k but first set come with one. Can use my gf membership if you do not know any amway member.

    But it's worth every cent or baht if you are concern about quality of drinking water. Yes, you can drink straight from the espring without boiling. How i know? Because during last flooding, we distribute free water to our customer and staff and also an orphange. So far, have mot heard anyone get sick.
    Bro 29k is quite expensive but its ok no problem as long as have savings from 35k. I just like to know installation is it easy?

    Hehehe. Think the equipment price still OK, but the filter is really expensive, THB 4.5K which can last about 1 year but I kiasu so change every 6 months. Now seldom use because everyone become lazier since we have a commercial water supplier to replace the big 20 litre water containers everyday. Those bottles are heavy and so I don't expect my staff to lift the 20KG water containers onto the water dispenser.

    My staff have commented the filtered water from the filter is very good, taste better than the commercial ones. I believe this has something to do with the water source rather than the filter.

    It has everything to do with the process of "purification".

    Hehehe. This purification thing a little too complicated for me lah. Honestly, I also cannot tell the difference between purified and non-purified water, mineral and non-mineral water. But beer and whisky, I sure can tell the difference.

    Anyway, I used to have an industrial grade RO water system in my Surin. Sad to say, I no longer involve in Surin biz.

    Working hard now to find lobangs for land plots for lease in Rayong and Chantaburi.

    No problem bro. Think you can get the unit in Rayong but BKK should have more outlets. Yes, they will come install at your home or office. You just need a electrical point. They take care of the rest.

    Think today will visit Central to look at some kitchen stuff. Already collected 90% of my cooking ware from old apartment. Any idea if it's cheaper to get Henckels product in LOS or SG? Looking for a good kitchen scissor.

    iphone confirm better than human eyes. Was driving to Chonburi city yesterday and the rain was heavy. The visibility was quite bad and surprisingly, this pic is very clear as I remember visibility is low. Another baan nork truck driver hogging the rightmost lane.
