Yes! I figured there had to be a conspiracy theory in there somewhere.

I told my wife casually about this and she picked up 3 cases (120 bottles) from Sams just now. They were not out near us. We are officially water hoarders i guess

If you have a faucet on the job site, rig up a filter system and give them all a tin cup.

Wife and daughter bought 5 cases of Ozarka about a week ago. Said it was on sale. Now I'm wondering if they are hoarding...

I'll take bottles if I go to the lease or something, sometimes if I'm working out side wifey brings a bottle but mostly I use the fridge door filtered water or garden hose.

Think I'm gonna buy an Igloo water cooler before they go obsolete or get hoarded.

The wife went to Super 1 earlier, they were out of Ozarka water and 30 packs of Bud Light. Guess I'm going to dehydrate this weekend.

We buy 1-2 cases per week. HEB water has been rising in price pretty quickly. Up 20% in just the last week!

Still not a lot of money. Was $1.98 12-18 months ago and slowly rose to $2.98 But this week jumped to $3.49

Sorry that's more like 18% lol

This is for job site crews. Looks like we will go back to coolers and paper cups. Problem is its a pain with the OSHA regs and steps you have to take. Then you still need to find potable water on site.

Any one here sell water?

We get ours from a an electrical supply house ship straight to the jobs.

No issues for us, bought 4 cases this weekend and saw no shortage at either local grocer. But this would be problematic for us as our local water supply will likely cause kidney failure over a lifetime of consumption due to some diethyl chemical compound that is present waaaaay above the epa threshold
