Unknowingly i started drinking it once.. terrible.
I think that boiling water and freezing it is a bit time consuming though.. but i go through 24 packs of water bottles every couple days, so i imagine that water would probably work better and i doubt i would notice the deficit of a few bottles.
I have heard alot of people say on these forums that glcyerin is a major contributor to the amount of smoke, so i don't see why it wouldn't also make a difference in slight smoke color variations.
He should call the dept of water and power... tap water is so crazy regulated it's supposed to be, and generally is, some of the cleanest water around. Bottled water on the other hand has almost no purity regulations.
