Better than tank water
We live in rural Victoria and you’d be mistaken for thinking nothing could be natural rain water on your roof. Well you’re wrong. Our place is surrounded by gum trees and our tank water always has a brown tinge to it and a ... strange smell. Ok for showers, toilets and clothes washing, but not for drinking. Even with double filtration. Mt.Franklin water is great. We use it for making cold drinks, tea, coffee etc..
I like your pineapple and mint water But can you pumped lid please
It would be good if you use different lid the opening of the bottle to wide

Source is mt Tamborine
This water is sourced from mt Tamborine in Qld, nowhere near mt Franklin, and is underground water , 7500 residents of the area depend on for living,so keep your bottles and 6.5 ph water and leave it to the people that survive and depend on it.

Cant open new lids
Always purchased your water bottles, last few weeks new bottles I can not open the lids. Very Difficult, I am a woman and still struggle. They are very think and hand just slides. Will have to purchase other brands as drinking approx 4 bottles a day the opening struggle is real!!!!!

What was of the earth belongs to the earth.
Its time you stopped taking water from the bores, leave it for the people who rely on it as their water source. Time to give back to what you have made such a profit from, the earth. I will never again buy your water knowing our country and its people are in such dire need, the people you sell to do not rely on this water.

Please do something about this
I bought 3 bottles of flavoured Mt Franklin water on the weekend (with a larger lid) and had difficulties opening all 3 bottles. After struggling to open these bottles my neices husband was eventually able to open them for me. Unfortunately he wasnt around when I wanted the third bottle opened and below is the result of trying to open the remaining bottle. 3 massive and painful blisters then I found a 4th later. After nearly ripping my hand and resulting in 4 blisters I still wasnt able to open that 3rd bottle of water. If I couldnt open thes...e bottles of water theres no chance an elderly person or a child would be able to open them. As much as a really like the flavoured water I wont be rushing to buy anymore on the near future. You need to ensure that these lids are not locked onto these bottles so this doesnt happen to someone else.
The Mount Franklin bottle size is smaller then what you would buy as a single bottle from a retailer and very convenient,. The size is very useful as it allows you to carry it around with you in your bag for the day. Which is what you want in water. You don’t have the “tap water taste” which you get from the tap or other inferior products. There is no after taste... yuck. The bottles are made of 100% recycled material which is definitely a huge bonus to all those environmentalists and breeders! With the price being half of the supermarkets thi...s one gets my recommendation, AAA quality! These are not cheap crinkly bottles. Expect high quality, superiority, nice quality, slender bottles.

Only gave one star because I couldn't give zero
I switched over to Mt Franklin water two weeks ago because I thought the sturdy bottles would be easier to handle. After a few days I felt bloated and nauseous and couldn't think what might have made me feel like that. I drink my water at room temperature and the Mt Franklin tasted slightly slimy and didn't quench my thirst no matter how much I drank. I have stopped using it and threw the rest in the bin. I'm feeling a bit better now I've stopped.

Best tasting spring water in Australia
Tried all types of spring water and I prefer this to all others.
Tastes nothing like Evian, which I really dislike due to its alkaline taste.
Didn’t know water could taste so sour until I had a few sips of Mount Franklin. I’m never buying this brand ever again I feel so sick now.
Now I may be young but I still have many opinions on mount franklin. Sometimes I go to the pool, and when I leave, I am really thirsty. So I go and get some mount franklin. But I go to have some and the lid just won’t budge and then when I finally open it Boom water is everywhere plus when I got to drink some water it was disgusting Think I’d rather just spend a bit of extra money and buy some Fiji Even just some plain old tap water would be better than Mount Franklin Fiji is just plain better it may cost a few extra dollars but who cares if you drink Mount Franklin There will be consequences
Acidic water. Needs review
Acidic water, can taste it in my gums and stomach. Is there any testing or quality control for mf? Can't remember it being this bad. Not going to drink this water. Not sure if it's safe. It really is bad. Hope someone looks into this
Mt Franklin water is disgusting.
Everyone needs to boycott this product seriously full of acid and salt.
If you want to get sick keep drinking it.
High acidity! it tastes... terrible!
I bought four "500mlx20" boxes from Woolworths 2 days ago. By comparing it side by side to Woolworths' and Aldi's water brands, It was slightly yellowish and tasted horrible. It was like it went through a harsh purifying process so I decided to use my PH kit to determine the acidity. Woollies PH: Green 7.1, Aldi PH: Green 7.0, Mount Franklin: Dark Yellow 6.6 "pretty acidic for drinking water". I will definitely never buy it again.
Great water, best taste of any bottled water
Firstly, I am sad its owned by Coca Cola, but their reverse osmosis filtration process is second to none. The water is great, and the bottles are rigid and hold up to being transported really well. Probably not the drink t drink if you're genetically inferior person who can't remove bottle lids, can't tolerate salt, or somehow get plastic shavings in your water (i.e. you're all kinds of stupid).
Taste isn't as good as it was a few years ago, I think they have changed the process and it tastes worse at room temperature, but I drink it cold because I can afford a fridge.
This has sodium 12.5mg So if you are allergic to sodium, not the best drink to have.
It gave me terrible stomach pains.
Can't remove lid
Love the water but can never open the bottle myself. I always get my partner to take the lid off. The last 2 bottles we bought, even he couldn't remove the lid. We actually skinned our hands. I even tried using my teeth! Don't have this problem with any other brand. Will have to buy something else now so that I can be guaranteed of getting a drink!!!! I surely can't be the only one with this problem.
Stale Water and Dodgy Plastic Bottles
Mt Franklin used to be the best bottled water. Now it tastes stale like it has been sitting in the bottle for years. The worst part of the Mt Franklin plastic bottles is when you unscrew the lid to open it, plastic fragments (almost like shavings) stick on my lips and tounge, God knows how much I've swallowed.
Cheap and Nasty!! This never used to happen.
Terrible design for the CAP
The most intolerant part is the cap. I am a young, strong and fit guy but every time I find it is hard to open the cap. It causes skin damage on my thumb.
This water making me real sick
Since I started drinking this water.. i.ve been feeling very unwell.. lips are dry.. feel crook and panicky..palpultations bones aching.
When i change brands it comes good . This is very frightening
Questions & Answers
I am doing a project for science and was wondering if Mount Franklin has a process or is filtered?
