Always try and find the grocery store where the stock boys hold a grudge against management.

How spoiled are we that we snub our noses at tap water from the faucet and then we collectively spend millions of dollars on tap water in a drating bottle?

It`s just water. Be grateful you have some that`s even clean.

Recent tests on name-brand bottled water have shown that 70% of samples tested exceeded the safe-level of colony-forming-units of bacteria. The standard is 500 CFUs/ml and some samples reached 80,000.

Unless you drink your water from a swamp, you should stay away from bottled water.

I just use a Brita filter because Arizona water is so hard that I can`t drink it straight from the tap without gagging.

I once read the label on the side of a bottle of mineral water, which described how the water had been purified by "filtering through the volcanic rocks of the region". In an area with no volcanic rocks whatsoever! Sure, there are igneous rocks there, but they`re plutonic/batholitic to hypabyssal at best! I ask you, what`s this world coming to? Man, made me angry.

Hey, I`m a geologist, don`t judge me. It`s an illness you know.

bottled water companies are subject to source quality testing a hand-full of times a year.

Municipal sources are tested hundreds, if not thousands of times a year.

What`s safer?

I drink tap water.

I feel perfectly normal swimming in my river with a hundred other dirt people, pissing and all. I`d drink it.

OK- not ALL bottled water comes from municipal supplies. Some do actually come from springs, etc. Though the labeling doesn`t make it all that clear. Thankfully, I live in a city with excellent tasting water. The only time I run it through a filter is when I use it to water my orchid.

my man works for the local water company and has to be licensed (in multiple areas of expertise) and is subject to jail time if something goes wrong with the water system that can be traced back to human error/carelessness/etc. so i would venture to say that water from a metropolitan system is pretty safe.

Except of course exposure to the contaminants that will leach out of the plastic. Oh, and all the metal that got into it when it was piped through the exact same tape water pipes to get to the bottling plant because they use tap water.

with me it`s about taste. the water in my town is gross so I drink bottled, but just one town over I can drink the tap. only certain bottled water is good to me. I can tell by smelling water whether I can drink it or not.

Yes, tap water meets stringent quality standards--at the distribution plant. From there, it`s pumped through miles of ancient, corroded pipe, and then into the even more dubious plumbing of your own house. It`s unlikely to pick up any contaminants that will harm you along the way, but certainly does pick up things like rust that affect the flavor. Whereas bottled water is shipped from the source in a sterile plastic bottle, preventing its exposure to any undesirable contaminants.

That some mountain somewhere? How about Corpus Christii in Texas? How about Venezuela... this is where you get your packaged water. Unless you live in Mexico or worse, quit being such a bitch and drink from the god damn tap. Contrary to popular belief, it won`t kill you.

The funny thing is that they are made on the same line. All they do is change the bottles, with the plastic of the "cheaper" water being a little bit thinner than the expensive stuff.
Working in the packaging industry really opens a person`s eyes regarding off-brands and name brands.

@mcfudge, bottled water has less regulations than tap water. Tap water, on a whole is usually more healthy than bottled.

mcfudge, you know most bottled water is just tap water that`s been filtered, right? And you also know that tap water regulations are very stringent, while bottled water has no such government regulation? In fact, the water you pay for probably has more "recycled urine and turds" than the tap water I am drinking. And if you`re drinking spring water then I hope you enjoy the kidney stones you will inevitably receive from the large amounts of dissolved mineral solids found in most deep well water.

Wow... You know why people by bottled water? Because tap water tastes like crap. A case is $3, who really cares? Oh wait, most of IAB is jobless, so they cant really afford a few gallons of pre-packaged water in the first place. Enjoy your nasty recycled urine and turds, I`ll enjoy my ice cold bottle of water from some mountain somewhere.

Thank god for good tasting tap water. GO SWEDEN! The bottled water that is sold here is mostly carbonated.

I had to take down the sign on my tap saying "free water" because it kept getting wet.

Britta is way cheaper, but I still opt for the bottled. I have a Britta in my fridge, but on the go I am always grabbing bottles. Just easier.

@entwife-

A Britta filter is WAY cheaper than bottled water.

And neither one is guaranteed to be any cleaner than the water coming out of the tap. In fact, Aquafina and cheap bottled water ARE tap water.

You call $2.99 cheap for water? Not even if that entire pallet cost that much would it be cheap.

I would pay approximately 1 cent for a 24 pack, minus a dollar for the inconvenience of it being in tiny, disposable bottles.

Fun fact: all that bottled water? Unless it`s imported or spring water, it`s just filtered tap water. Granted, it might not be from your city/town`s water supply, but wherever it`s bottled, it comes from that water supply.

The tap water here is nasty, because it comes from a lake, so if it hasn`t rained in awhile, the water doesn`t circulate right. I can only drink it now, because I bought a brita filter. Before I got the filter, I would buy gallon jugs of store brand water to drink.

Well, I`m glad everyone here seems to have good tasting tap water and doesn`t need to buy bottled water. Where I live, the tap water smells and tastes TOXIC....like it came straight out of a public pool, chlorine and pee and all. We double filter our tap water before we drink or cook with it and we do buy bottled water sometimes.

saying bottle water in tap water is the funniest joke i hear, no poo ! it`s not like water is jsut magically generated in some secret base under the chilean mountains it`s the same water thats always been on the earth except in stead of having chlorine, fluoride additives and estrogen and other hormones from birth control pills it`s distilled mineralised filtered 9+ times and then chemically balanced for taste, so ya they are both H2O, except one is purified and tastes good the other is water just marginally purified to code

lol, and both probably came from the same well. All bottled water is tap/well water, nothing special except for the possibility of more bacteria.

At work a few months ago we were guarding some gates and I would bring along a ice cooler of the cheapest water I could get usually like 3-4 bucks at walgreens some of the other guys would refuse to drink off brand water. Pricks

I agree SlothOfDoom...not to mention that it`s often been bottled long before reaching the consumer.

I much prefer to drink a generic local brand that hasn`t had much of an opportunity to leech the plastic, but the tap water in my city is potable enough.

The sad thing is, a lot of people will see the prices and think, "Hey, this one costs more. It MUST be better."

Oooor, you could buy a five dollar steel water bottle and never need to buy bottled water again! We have some great water in the dorm water fountain, but I swear I`m the only one who drinks it.

The not so cheap water came from the tap. The cheap water came from a barrel under the Brooklyn bridge.
