bottled water

Do you buy/ drink bottled water?  I can't seem to make myself drink tap water so I either filter it or drink bottled water.

I am a chemist and I know for fact that filters can only filter the solid residue in water but nothing more
although they all claims that this water system can give you 100% pure water and there is no such thing for real
even bottled water is not 100% pure
and I Live in new Orleans the water here taste horrible so I have to buy bottled water to drink and I don't use tap water at all only in laundry, showers,.. etc I even buy water gallons to cook and make coffee with

Yes, I buy bottled. I haven't tried filters, but I do drink tap water from time to time too.

I found the online video called "tapped"quite helpful, myself. I use a water pitcher that filters out fluoride and all the rest of the chemicals. The ones you can put on your faucet don't last very long.

I drink filtered water out of my refrigerator and also buy bottled water, although I don't drink that very often. Honestly, I'm too addicted to soda!

I prefer bottled too, but in actuality, tap is better for you. The chlorine kills more bacteria.

Really?  You know that there are bottled water companies that take their water straight out of the tap.  It is the same thing.  It is all in your head.

Some put minerals in it, and it sometimes makes the bottled water taste bad. That's why I drink tap water.

We have sulfur water, so we have to buy bottled water for drinking. (Unless you like to drink rotten eggs!) I miss being able to just drink water right out of the tap, like I did when I was growing up, in Connecticut, where the water is actually drinkable. The more places I travel to, the more I realize that there are a lot of parts of this country that don't have good drinking water.

I drink tap water when i make drinks like tea with it, but I just can't drink it by itself. It seems weird but i just don't like it so I always buy bottled water.

Nah....I've heard that sometimes, the things in bottled water can be even worse than what would be found in your tap. I'm not a big water-drinker to begin with, I prefer soda or iced tea, but my iced tea is the kind you mix in a pitcher with water, and I've always used tap for that.
