What water do you drink? And how much of it per day?

I drink bottled water of any brand. Tap water in Dublin tastes too chlorinated for my palate. Also there are black flecks in the water from my tap if you look closely. I try to drink 2 litres per day so I usually buy Tesco own brand water which is quite cheap or else Ballygowan. If I was loaded with money I would buy Evian or Volvic. What water do you drink? Flavoured water, tap water, or are you one of those people who doesn't actually drink water but only fizzy drinks?

I only drink the bottled water. I was drinking the flavored sparkle water, but then I was told my body does not regonize this as water and actually retains it. Now I drink Dasani and try to drink around 60 ounces.

Yes, the flavoured is not as good as it has added chemicals. But it is better than coke etc.

Our tap water tastes nasty too, and I do like to drink water. Answer...a water jug and filters. No more furry kettles either. As for bottled water, if I had my way I'd ban the industry. The quality of the water for the most part is no better than many tap water, plus these companies are buying up water rights from impoverished communities who are left with no access to water. Even where there are droughts and sporadic rains this practice of buying up the water rights is happening, because you pay so well for your water and peasants around the world can do without! The whole subject gets me very angry!!!

the water I buy is from Ireland? The "peasants" don't mind as far as I know : )

Please do not think, I am mounting a personal attack. The facts are that is is often cheaper to import water bottled abroad than to sell you your "own" water. With about 1/3rds of the world being short of fresh water, I can see no justification for encouraging this industry, dominated as it is by global vandals.

I don't drink much water. I drink especially when playing soccer or when eating, but I think not more than 1,5 L

I think that 1.5 litres is about right

I hate drinking water. But I know I have to so I force myself. I drink the flavored water though some of them taste worse than plain water. I try to drink at least 3 cups a day although I know it is recommended that you drink 8.

You are so like my dh who does not like the taste of water. The more you drink, the more you crave to drink water.

I don't drink much water. The tap water here tastes nasty and makes my stomach upset. Most of the bottled waters make my stomach upset as well so I drink it only when I have to. My neice though loves the bottled water and will drink that more then anything else. She'll go through a 24 pack in just a few days.
