There's no such thing, per this page by Stephen Lower, "retired
Chemistry professor and habitual imbiber of tap-water":

"It is generally agreed that the special properties of water
 stem from the tendency of its molecules to associate, forming
 short-lived and ever-changing polymeric units that are
 sometimes described as "clusters". These clusters are more
 conceptual than physical in nature; they have no directly
 observable properties, and their transient existence (on
 the order of picoseconds) does not support an earlier view
 that water is a mixture of polymers (H2O)n in which n can
 have a variety of values. Instead, the currently favored
 model of water is one of a loosely-connected network that
 might best be described as one huge "cluster" whose internal
 connections are continually undergoing rearrangement."
Much more on the page:

A picosecond is one-trillionth of a second - hardly the
lifespan of a bond sufficient to present a problem with 
absorption through the walls of the intestine, or to 
provide clustering that can be measured by any instrument,
as the professor points out later.

For more on the true nature of the structure of water,
