    Where is your water sold other than groceries?

  2. Aisu Kushida says:

      Aisu Kushida,
      Are you saying that the Lithia Spring, in Shelby, NC contains Hydrogen Sulfide?
      If so, how do you know this?

  3. Aisu Kushida says:

    Well it is quite obvious that it does contain hydrogen sulfide because the water in the bottle i took was clear but smells a strong odor of rotten eggs which is usually caused by hydrogen sulfide. I went to a lab just to make sure.

  4. Ethan says:

    Why is there a PVC pipe? Those are plastic and unnatural and may leach toxins. Could a glass pipe be used? Or just getting it out of the hole in the rocks?

  5. Kathleen says:

    It’s not harmful to drink water that has sulfur in it. The smell dissapates in less than 24 hours. I called Public Works in Shebly and the man I spoke with, who’s in his 60’s, said the spring is outside the city limits but he knows people who have been drinking it all their lives.

    I went by spring today and did not see the pvc pipe. I need to know if this water is safe to drink and where to find the pvc.

  7. What is the final word on the water quality..I used to drink it as a kid in Shelby. What is Lithium?
    Thanks!

  8. Elliot says:

    hydrogen sulfide is safe to drink and so is lithium. Lithium has been known to have properties to make one live longer and is an antidepressant. These quantities are likely much smaller than those used for treating mental illness. Here is a good website about lithium. Currently without a mineral constituent test we don’t know how much lithium this spring even contains or why it was named lithia spring. http://lithiumloveslife.com/?page_id=18

    I drink this water all the time. People drive great distances too full up jugs. It’s a key ingredient for many people to living a long, healthy life.

  10. Scott Sullivan Carpenter says:

    I have been drinking this water for 8 years! Shhh! Keep the secret. Getting too crowded!
