    Water

    I've bought bottled water since forever they began selling it.

    I was out and filled a gallon container and let it sit out to let the
    chlorine dissipate out and it didn't taste half bad.

    Do you drink straight out of the tap, filter or buy bottled water?

    I need to buy another pool test kit to test the resting gallon jug of water
    side-by-side with the bottled water and see which fares better.

    Got a touch of "the runs" but that could've been the treat
    pepperoni/sausage pizza and a 10 day past prime chugging of fat free milk.

    Got science? And free time? Apply here. Free advice also accepted.

    How do you get your drinking water?

    From the tap ....just like many of the bottled water companies get
    theirs. I am also not adding to their coffers, the empty jugs to the
    landfills, not using up unnecessary energy in shipping it, nor having to
    expend my own energy to lug it home

    In St. Louis, it's dumb to buy bottled water. The tap water tastes
    great here. When we lived in Tampa Bay, we had to buy filtered water
    because the tap water tasted horrible. It cost 25 cents to refill a
    gallon jug at one of the machines outside every grocery store (that
    was back in 1991).

    I refill my 5 gal container for my water cooler about half full from
    the bathtub spigot.

    We have a 600' deep well, however some friends that live in town swear
    by the "Brita" filters. They have a pitcher w/filter and a filter on
    the faucet in their wet bar.

    They say the Brita water tastes as good, if not better, than bottled water.

    Personally, I still prefer my well water.

    Another vote for the Brita filters here. I always used tap water or
    well water until a couple of years ago when I moved to a small town
    with the worst drinking water ever... and I am NOT picky at all. But
    the Brita filter makes it very good, and it's a fraction of the cost
    of bottled water, even with the rather pricey filters.

    My spoiled teenager prefers Poland Spring Water. :-)

    Out of the tap. Memphis (area) water is excellent. I do have one of those
    Brita pitchers but I don't always remember to fill it up.

    From the tap. Most bottled water (in the USA) is labeled "MWS"
    (municipal water supply) or "PWS" (public water supply) or something
    like that. I do sometimes, but not often, buy a 'case' of liter water
    bottles just because I've lost the bottles over time. I'll refill those
    bottles with tap water over and over again so I have portable (and
    potable <g>) water handy when I run errands and such (bike ride, too).

    We're fortunate to have a tested well that provides fabulous water -
    cold and clean. Bottled water is just something we keep on hand for
    emergencies. I can completely understand using bottled if your local
    water is nasty, but could never understand the droves of people in our
    previous home (a CA suburb) who inisted on buying bottled even though
    their local tap water was indistinguishable from the stuff they were
    buying by the case.

    Geez, at 600' deep you could heat your home if you had a sealed closed loop
    system unless you live in a desert.

    Have a mountain top well in the yard at the farm next to the house that we
    have tested annually and tastes great!!! There are roadside "drip" pipes
    from other mountain springs that folks drive to and fill up from.

    Right out of the tap, but I do run it through a Brita. I don't know why.
    Just because.
