Do you drink bottled water or drink it straight from the tap?

I drink both. We have a deep well here so the water is very good. There is also a tap on the refrigerator so it goes through an additional filter. I also sometimes buy bottled water so I don't have to dirty a glass.I reuse the bottles. I know for some people their water doesn't taste good or may be unsafe. Bottled or from the tap for you?

Yes, I will use tap water for any kind of drink mix prepared at home or to make tea or coffee.

Both. We have a water filtration system, so the tap water is good.

I keep a pitcher in the fridge for when we'd like water at home, otherwise when on the go we drink bottled water.

I have filtered water from my refrigerator so I don't need to buy bottled water. I rarely will drink tap water unless I'm taking my pills.

As long as you are home you really don't need to buy bottled water. I just like to take water with me sometimes, or have bottles in the car in case I get thirsty.

@snowy22315 I wasn't thinking of the whole car thing. Yes I do take bottled water with me if I'm going to be out and about for awhile. Guess I haven't been out very much lately

@Marilynda1225 I gathered that.... I hate when bottled water in the car gets warm though..if it is too hot, it isn't even healthy to drink supposedly.

@snowy22315 I use reusable metal bottles to hold water. (Klean Kanteens) I don't like the idea of using water in plastic bottles. So much waste. My parents go through cases of bottled water each month and it disturbs me.

@NJChicaa When you refill them all the time it is less wasteful. Besides when I am done with them, I recycle all my bottles, at least I try to.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I guess you have well water?? My grandparents used to have water that was very hard. You could taste the minerals in it..however, they both lived well into their 90's so I think it had some health benefits.

Yes, I refill my water bottles all the time. I have a habit of squeezing them though and ruining them so a bottle doesn't last as long as it should

We have a Brita filter at home and drink that. Don't really drink bottled over unless I am out and about and am very thirsty. Then I will buy a bottle of water. It is safe to drink tap water in NYC but I prefer to filter it when I am at home.

@snowy22315 Sometimes when we go out to eat we get tap water 'cause it's free but usually I try to stay away from it.

@snowy22315 From a bottle only. When I was little I would drink out of both but as I got older, I could just taste some differences and tap water never tastes good to me. Bottled water for me.

Straight from the tap. I think that anyone who buys the Evian brand is Naive.

I mainly drink water from the tap. I'm blessed to live in a country where the tap water is very pure and clean without any additives like chlorine. That said, if I am on the go and didn't bring anything to drink with me, I can from time to time buy bottled water.

Both. We have a filtration system on our water here but if we're away from home I buy bottled water. Pretty usually saves the bottles to use at home.
