What is your source for drinking water?

April 24, 2007 7:40am CST
People living in big cities are drinking pipe line water supplied by corporation or municipality. In some countries people using bottled mineral water. It is very expensive and the poor people can not afford this. Iam very lucky for this becoz we have well in almost all houses in my state. So we are getting good drinking water. What is your source of drinking water.

Hey there jayanvarkala. I live in small rural beach town, that is rapidly growing with tourism, cafes and foreigners buying up realestate, a positive little town. Our water supply comes from this real huge water tank, that is situated at the top of our town, water is also fed into the town supply from fresh crisp clean mountain spring, which are tested often and tastes great, you cant taste the chlorine taste in the water out here, like you would in the cities. Beautiful water, when ever we travel we take our own bottled water, straight from the tap, As we refuse to drink city water.

i drink water out of the tab, it's safe and clean (I hope) some people don't trust the water company here because there's many areas where they don't have clean enough water to drink, they either buy bottled water or use expensive filters.. As far as I can see the water in my area is clean and no complaints about it and i can't really afford any extra expenses..

We drink tap water here. Basically we boil it before drinking it. The tap water comprises rain water, water bought from neighbouring countries as well as recycled water. The recycled water is actually waste water that's undergoes reverse osmosis and other treatments and then put into reservoirs. Thereafter, it undergoes the normal treatment before we get it in our homes as tap water.

well here in the philippines the water from faucet is not safe anymore to drink that's why a lot of distilled water sellers or dealers came up as of now most of us here are drinking distilled water or purified water good for us coz we can afford to buy it unfortunately a large number of poor families can't afford to buy it that's why most of the diseases can get from dirty water mostly happening to them...

I live in a city but I'm not satisfied of the quality of tap water . Normally I use it only for cleaning and washing. I drink only mineral water and sometimes natural juice or other juice ,it's true it's expensive but I'm not willing to risk my health by consuming the water that our municipality is offering.The reason... people don't protect nature and our rivers are full of garbage so they are polluted .

I live in the city but I buy drinking water. I won't drink the water from the city becouse I don't like the way it smells or tastes. I buy it by the five gallon jugs and it only takes about two a week to cook and drink.

We have water piped to our house, which we drink, as it has added flouride, which is great for my young son's teeth. We also have a rainwater tank, although that has quite a lot of dirt and leaves and stuff in it. Because we have water restrictions here, the tankwater is generally used for the garden.

I dont drink tap water because I do not like the taste. Plus it is loaded with chlorine. There are two waters that I will dring. one is called Figi water that gets sent to the united states from Figi, and the other is Evian. For me those are the two best tasting waters that are out there.
