I believe bottled water is just for the money tap water can be sterilized also by boiling it.

I think you waste a lot of money on bottled water when there have been studies done that bottled water isn't anymore purified then tap water. We have a PUR system on our faucet at home. I use that water for everything, even out of my sons sippy cups. Our water is safe to drink from the tap anyways.

I like our tap water and I know it is safe. They even bottle our tap water. It is from an underground spring. I don't like some bottled water it doesn't taste as fresh.

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.

I think most of the bottles water is probably tap water from somewhere.  I also have a purified system for my tap water.  If you have a well, you might want to buy water for drinking.

Haha I did an experiment on this in my microbiology class! Every student brought in their favorite brand of bottled water and milk sample to test. A few bottled water brands had bacterial colonies form on the agar plates, as well as a few tap water samples. Even with pasteurization, almost all of the milk samples also showed large amounts of bacteria.

Bottled water is required by federal law to be AS SAFE as tap water. However, bottled water companies have weaker rules than the EPA rules for city tap water. Tap water must be tested 100 times or more a month for pathogens, while bottled water plants are only required to test once weekly. Those students that came in with filtered tap water had similar results to those with bottled water. They're basically the same- just use a filter when drinking from tap!

Bottled water is convenient.  However, those companies make so much money off of this.  Why not boil the water or buy a filtration system for your house and use that water.  Just carry it in a bottle or other container.
