In your opinion, which is better? Well or city water? Why? I will only be rating each answer. Thank you.

Where we live it is neither, our well water is hard water it tastes ok the city water is a nice shade of yellow no matter where you live in the city, the water actually looks cleaner after you have had your bath in it so in that case I am glad we are on a well.

Well water tastes so much better. I haven't had it in years, but I used to go over to a friend's house and fill up empty jugs from her sink because her well water tasted so good!

I think well water is better. I used to have well water when I lived in another house. It taste much better than city water. And city water is so hard, it makes a ring around the inside of my toilet and I can clean it often and it is still there.

I haven't had well water very often. I guess it was good when I did have it. The good thing about the well water was that it was really cold even though it was summer time. I guess I would have to do more taste testing before I could make a decision.

well if i am going to choose from these 2.. i will choose well instead of city water..bcoz city waters are polluted..but i prefer you also to drink distilled water i think that is much cleaner..

We only have the option of town water at the moment. It doesn't tast too bad where I am living now but my last adress had awful tasting town water. It was full of chlorine and you could see it as really cloudy when you turned on the tap. Couldn't be good for you. I occaisionally buy bottled water if I am working to keep an eye on how much I am drinking.

well water - asked my preference and hands down it is well water
We have a well and are content knowing that it can't be messed with like the public water treatment plants. Also when power goes out we still have water especially since it is solar and wind powered. Well water is from the ground, naturally filtered and not chemically treated in any way. I much prefer water right from the ground.

In my opinion well water is the better hands down! It taste better and we have it checked occasionally and it is very good and we don't have to put all those chemicals in it just to make it safe!
