Do you buy bottled water or are you comfortable drinking tap water?

I drink tab water , it's said that it's safe to drink in my area but I would buy bottled water just the same and to be more safe if it wasn't an extra expenses while i have other priorities and it's not really needed as they say.

I don't like tap water. I have to buy bottled water. Aquafina is my favorite brand!

Aquafina IS really good -- it tastes clean and clear.

I don't mind tap water, but we always buy bottled water. We also have a water cooler in the kitchen, but we haven't decided who we're going to use for water delivery yet. Hubby on the other hand wouldn't think of drinking out of the tap, so everytime I go to the store I buy at least 1-2 cases, which only lasts us about a week.

I buy bottled water not tap, I would die if I had to drink tap there are so many unhealthy things in it. No bottled water in the house then I can't survive we have to go right out and buy some.

If you believe that tap water is less healthy than bottled water you are wrong. You might want to read this report. I was surprised too. There have been numerous studies done lately that pretty much show the same thing. http://www.nrdc.org/water/drinking/nbw.asp

I don't like the tap water around here. They had a big issue with contamination. I have bought bottle water long before we moved here. it tastes better.

The tap water here sometimes tastes like they treat it with too much chlorine. Yuck!

I have a PUR purifier on my tap and live close to a bottler so my water tastes the same as the bottled.

They say that in my city tap water is good, but I don't like it very much. So, I always buy bottled water for drinking, and I think that it's more healthy too.

Yes actually we have to buy bottled water here! Our tap water is horrible and it dries out your skin and has an awful taste. In our household we always buy bottled water to be on the safe side!

We have bottled water delivered to our home. I don't know when we decided tap was not good enough. It might be ok here in Washington, but we were just in crypto sporidium land (?)--Milwaukee. Ok, that was decades ago, but still. I got tired of carrying all the water around, so I just have Jamie, our water guy, do it. :)

I used to only drink bottled water. I have now switched back to tap water, however, after seeing several studies where it's been found that most tap water is actually healthier. Tap water actually has to meet higher standards than bottled water as well! Here are some articles you might want to read on the subject. http://www.nrdc.org/water/drinking/nbw.asp http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2001-05-02-bottled-water.htm http://www.case.edu/pubaff/univcomm/water.htm

I am comfortable drinking tap water, but I do like the taste of bottled water better. It's either that or filtered water we have.
