About Us

What is PH+9 Alkalized Water?

There are numerous claims of the health benefits when drinking water with an elevated PH  or Alkaline content. At Water Shack we start with our Purified Drinking Water and infuse natural minerals (Magnesium, Potassium, and Calcium are the primary 3) which brings the PH Balance up into the high 9s. This method maintains the higher PH even when stored for months prior to using. Always keep your bottles of water out of the sun light, and we recommend the use of BPA Free Bottles or Glass. Drop by for a taste of our delicious Purified and Alkalized Water, see if you can tell the difference.

Video Rentals?

A Very Economical Way To Have A Really Awesome Evening!

Some people might ask what’s so great about a video store, most of them are gone? Well think about what a wonderful experience it was heading to the local Video store, browsing through all the new releases, maybe even a look through the comedy or horror. Remember going with your family and picking a movie for family movie night? Some truly great memories and this terrific experience is still available for you and your family. Sure you can stand at a little Red box for limited choices, or you can come enjoy the huge selection and great atmosphere. Video $ Day has been serving Vista for over 30 years!
