Do you drink bottled water?
« on: February 11, 2011, 05:09:29 am »
Do you filter your drinking water or buy bottled water?  I know it may be a waste of money but I just feel better drinking bottled water.

I drink bottled water because my husband buys it.  I would not waste money buying bottled water.  Most of the time, If I drink a bottle of store bought water, I will refill it with tap water.  Once it is cold, you can't tell the difference.

I drink bottled water because it's what we have at work.  I use bottled water at home too but sometimes when I am making tea I use tap water.  We just bought a water pitcher with a filter so we won't be using that many bottles any more.

Ha Ha... Bottled water goes through the same filtration process as the water from your sink. There is no difference other than wasting oil to make thousands of plastic bottles that are inevitably thrown on the side of the road. If you are going to pick something get a filter for your tap water and save the energy used to make the bottled water. Refill your bottles in you sink. Unless you live in a third world country this is an option for you. Personally, I just drink tap water.

It might go through the same process but the taste is very different. That tap water tastes so nasty. Yuck. I'm faithful to my bottled spring water. Trust me if you tasted the spring water I buy and then the tap water at my house, you'd definitely taste the difference. I literally spit out my tap water. Disgusting. There must be something wrong with the water treatment plant in my town because that water is nasty. I can't stand the taste of it. Thank God it doesn't come out with a weird color or odor. I would think twice about using it to wash my dishes.

I used to drink tap water but switched over to bottled water. I just don't trust tap water anymore.

I drink bottled water because my water has a very bad taste. I don't think my area filters it's water very thoroughly. I would not attempt to drink the water in my area unless it is boiled first.
