I know all places are different in how the water tastes so i was wondering ho wmany people drink the tap water where they live? We do not drink it unless we are dying for water and it's all there is. We use a filter. We didn't have one for about 3 weeks and the boyfriend was SO excited when we finally could purchase a replacement. Our water is like a milky color when you put in a glass, it's gross!

I drink the tap water at my house because we have our own well and the water is always crystal clear and fresh and it tastes delicious!

We are very fortunate where we live in the UK that the tap water is great to drink! I don't use a filter either I will drink it straight from the tap, I will fill a water bottle up straight from the tap and use it for when I go to bed if I wake up needing a drink during the night and I will also take the water to the gym whilst training. Our water is lovely and clear with no aftertaste.

Hello,Sami! We collect the tap water and put in the filter.This filtered water is used for drinking purposes as and when required.Some people boil the tap water and put in the filter and use this filtered water for drinking purpose.This process is also good.Thanx.

I don't drink the plain water I drink koolaid and also bottled flavored water but my husband and son does so it does not seem to bother them it's just me I guess.

I loove flavored water! Our filter has an option to actual put flavor tablets in it. Very neat. Thanks for responding!

We used to have really good water in this city and growing up I was spoiled. Never thought about filters or bottled water until a year or so ago. Now they put so many chemicals in it it smells like the local pool. I will drink it if we are out of bottled water but I prefer not to.

Wow, that must be really nice! I was going nuts having to drink water/juice all the time without a filter. It's pretty bad when you can't even drink the water in your own home. Thanks for responding!

I don't unless I have to, I use the water cooler water first. But in a pich I will. It is safe to drink, but I just am not very keen on the taste it has. The color of it is fine and all, but the taste is kind of odd to me. Thats why I bought the water cooler in the first place.
