With the possiblity of so many things going through the public water system do you drink bottled water? And what type of bottled water do you drink? My preference is spring water, because distilled and reverese osmosis takes out all the good minerals that our body still needs. Me and my wife call that dead water.

Im used to dringking bottled water everytime i go out of our house because im very easy to get thirsty and everything thats why i have a bottle or two everytime. im not very meticulous about what type of bottled water i drink (either distilled or mineral), but i guess il gowith distilled water because im sure that perfectly nothing is in it (thou it includes some minerals) its ok for me. anyways if you really want to feel safe youl have to do some sacrifices.

Drinking water straight from the tap is no longer safe in many parts of the world because the distribution system was in place for several years, some even centuries. Purified and distilled water is the most common bottled water available here. I'm not even sure how safe is spring water, haven't done any serious research yet. One of these days I might do some studies about what happens to water after it passes through the process of reverse osmosis.

I prefer to buy bottled water than having our public water system as our source of drink. But it is very expensived. I have to placed bottled water in the budget. But sometimes when bottled water is already consume we just use public water but i have to boiled them first before using them for drinking.

Well the tap water is very safe in my area. But I still got Arrowhead water delivered. I don't really care about the brand when buying bottled water. I will buy any known brand, arrowhead, spring, kirkland, dasani, alhambra or crystal geyser. I look for any of these on sale usually $4.99 for a pack of 24 bottles.
