So here is a question. I left a bunch of water bottles (ice mountain, never opened) in my cars trunk when it was below 0 out for a few nights. Then I took the frozen water bottles to work, the ice melted and turned back to water, but now there are these tiny white little particles floating around and I'm trying to determine if its safe to drink the water. The bottles have never been opened, just frozen and thawed out. What could those particles be? I doubt they are plastic, but I have no idea.

If they were never opened, it's safe to drink them. It's just a physical change that occurred, no reason to get alarmed. My best bet is that those little particles might be small pieces of ice that have yet to undergo the change.

I doubt that. It might be limescale or some other kind of mineral. However, it is surely safe to drink.

I certainly do also but that remained the only possible conclusion I possessed at the given moment.

That's what I'd bet on. I have well water at home. It's really good water. Two miles away they pump the same water out of the ground, 100,000 gallons a day and put it straight into bottles. The same thing happens with my ice cubes. It's lime/calcium in the water.

The best thing about my water is the price....

I would surmise it's undissolved solids that were in solution before freezing. Maybe CastleIsland can check in and tell us about it because he's a pretty smart cookie about these things.

Remember too that when that water froze it expanded and it probably broke the seal at the top. Who knows what could have gotten into it while it was thawing when the seal was broken. Meh if I was hungover and needed a drink bad, didn't want to get out of bed. I would drink it!
