alot of different types of water is being produced in the market these days. but i still prefer to drink tap water from our faucet. it has the same effect as the other water to my body so i just have this one. besides, i don't have to pay for another price just to have water to drink. do these have any differences from each other? what type of water do you drink? is it distilled? mineral? tap? alkaline?

I drink tap water also. I hate paying for bottled water. I did like our tap water better when we lived in the country and it came from a well. Now we have city water and it just doesnt taste as sweet and good.

A lot of people say that there isn't a difference in water. I can taste differences. I can't usually drink tap water. I am allergic to clorine, and for me the clorine is very strong in tap water. Most bottled waters also come from tap water. If you take a look at the bottle they have to say on it where they get their water I believe. There is only one kind of bottled water I will drink and that's Zepherhills. It's a natural srping water. I have been to the spring, it is a very beautiful place. The water is ice cold in 100 degree heat lol. I have tried drinking other types of water, and I can taste the impurities in it.

I prefer to drink spring water. Sometimes I will drink a flavor water. I started drinking bottled water years ago because where I lived the water smelled nasty.

I drink carbonated, flavoured water from a bottle simply because the tap water here tastes sweet. The hills closeby are the South Downs, which are chalk and where a lot of the water comes down from. There is a spring beneath these downs which is some 12 miles from where I live. I could go and fill bottles from there, but I'm not too keen on the taste. There are a lot of chemicals in tap water too, but I've survived long on tap water, it's just that my tastes have changed. Brightest Blessings and Cheers!!!

We used to boil tap water before drinking it years ago. Now that our place is bombarded with many water refilling station, we have since consumed purified or distilled water. This is more practical than just boiled water. Tap water is potable water so I don't see anything wrong with it. Water in whatever form has the same effect: it hydrates our body. Be it hard water, soft water, mineral, demineralized, purified, distilled or alkaline water. They just differ in properties that made one better than the other. There are claims that alkaline water is a good choice because it balances the body's pH (whatever that is) that prevents us from getting sick. It energizes and hydrates more than ordinary water. There are also claims that cooking food with alkaline water tastes and helps absorb nutrients from food effectively.

I usually drink right from the tap too. Although I have lived in places where the taste of the tap water is just aweful. It bothers a lot of people because they think there are too many chemicals in the water. But it doesn't bother me.

Since we got our new deep well, I drink a lot more well water. The taste is good now. The old shallow well didn't taste nearly as good. I hate the taste of city water and refuse to drink it, so if I am somewhere that doesn't have well water I will usually buy a bottle of flavored water. I like to buy them sometimes.

I drink the water with berry flavoring from Nestle. Tap water in my area doesn't taste very good so I have my water filtered.
