Do you drink tap water?

May 15, 2017 9:56am CST
Many people avoid at all costs drinking tap water for saying they are still "dirty" water and some people only drinking when it's really necessary (I include myself here ). What do you think about it?

My dad always drank tap water. His is age 96. So, I drink tap water. Mom lived to age 92, and tap water was her choice too.

I used to drink filtered water in the UK but here I would not risk it.

@TheInvisibleMan The chlorine levels are high and the water is rarely clear

I don't mind drinking tap water. I don't have an issue with it, personally.

The tap water here in the UK is perfectly fine to drink. No issues. Everybody I know drinks tap water. :)

We use to but then we bought a Brita Filter and that filter really does make the water from the faucet taste better.

Here we don't drink tap water at all. We need to boil it at first so that it will be safe to drink.

I used to drink tap water a long time ago, but, even though the water in NY is supposed to be very clean , i drink nothing but bottled water or water from my Brita filtered container

It certainly would be a lot more economical, I'll say that much! Bottom line, though, is that I have tummy issues when it comes to chlorine and can't drink tap water without feeling sick, so we need to use bottled water. So for me, it's not a matter of thinking it's unsafe or anything, just that I can't tolerate it.
