I usually just have tap water, run through a filter in the fridge.

Bottle water is overpriced for what it is.

Bottled or filtered water for me. I usually open a 1.5 liter bottle in the morning, and keep refilling it with filtered water though the day. The tap water smells like fish, and in is brown here in Ventura County, CA. They say it's because they're not allowed to use chemicals anymore to clean it.

I drink usually Deer Park bottled water. I drink tap water at my aunt's and uncle's house since it is well water.

I'm one of the few people I know who can't stand the taste of bottled water. They add baking soda and other minerals "for taste" :x

I've had a few that were okay, but I'm completely fine with tap water.

That is a common misconception. Some types of "bottled" water aren't much different than tap water, but if you read the label other types of bottled water have in fact gone through reverse osmosis, which is an extremely thorough filtration system that makes the water 99% pure. The only way to get purer water than that is to buy distilled water, which is 100% pure. Both are also sold in gallon jugs, but I believe only reverse osmosis is sold in the smaller bottles that many people carry around.

Qft. I would have thought distilled it more common in smaller bottles tbh as reverse osmosis is a technique used by many home water filters?

I don't like bottled water. It takes...kind of heavy. However, the water from each tap in the house tastes differently, therefore, I only drink the water from the refrigerator.

I like the flavoured bottled water, the best.

The only thing bottled water is good for is those pouches of drink mixes they sell nowadays. Tap water costs next to nothing on the gallon, so when I'm not craving cherry flavored water it's the tap for me.

There is always a difference between the two. Often times, that doesn't mean bottled is better, though.

I just use tap and filter it. The filters are cheaper then bottled and the tap water is pretty safe around here.

Well..the sink I use has a separate spout for purified water. I prefer that. It's my vivid imagination that prevents me from drinking unfiltered water :lol:
