I drink both but mostly tap water that I keep in a 2 liter bottle. When I'm out and about i also carry bottled water.

In many cases bottled water is tap water. I wish I would have thought of putting plain water in a plastic bottle and selling it.

Some bottled waters deliver an exceptionally pure product but scientists are finding that we ne some of the chemicals that tap water contains.  I don't think that 'just' boiling water purifies it to a degree that may bottled waters are at because many f them also go through filterng prcss as well as coming fr a better source that has no been exposed to many of the contaminants contaned within sources from different areas...especiallylower lying areas that seem to gather polution.

          Yes, bottled water is better than tap water. Look for filtration systems. Distilled water is the best water you can have. Look it up at Wiki-Distilled water.

I think workers at the bottled water plants fill the bottles with tap water and then make a heck of a profit!

I made it through most of my life without even having bottled water.

It's convenient but overpriced.  If you don't trust tap water, use a filter then bottle it! :)

Bottled water is such a waste of money and resources. You should only really use it if you will be in a location where water quality is questionable. I drink regular tap water and if you want filters will do the same as bottled water sometimes even better. Most bottled water is simply tap water put in a tiny plastic bottle and sealed. It isn't magic or special water. It is just like your tap water. Get a filter if you don't like the taste of tap water and get a reusable water bottle to bring it with you.

I like bottled water. I have well water so I don't drink it. I will drink tap water from town though.

Yes I do have you ever fixed a glass of tap water and glass of bottled water and tasted it, very big difference in taste and look.

Really depends on where you live.  In my area, the tap water is just as good as the bottled stuff, but Ive lived in a few places where bottled water was a must for safety.

It's really a matter of preference.  I seriously doubt bottle water is less sterlized than tap water considering that tap water (at least in the dc metro area) is recycled sewer water (no lie do your homework!) where as bottled water is from a pure water source (see deerpark for example.)  Bottle water companies will suffer more lawsuits from consumers if way too many people become seriously ill while drinking their water (they also have stock to consider).  You're welcome to try and sue your water company if way too may get sick but I seriously doubt you'll win.

I heard that bottled water IS tap water. So why wasted all that money.
You are right... there isn't a company in the world tapping mountain springs to bottle and sell. 

Evian is naive spelled backwards.
Nice one lol ! I agree the only way you would ever for sure have fresh spring water is if you own one yourself. Water rights are all gone to any land you buy these days though. I have only ever seen ONE listing for a place that still had the water and mineral rights and the price for it was insane but imho well justified.
