and bottled water's not bad, but i usually fill it back up with tap water

Next time they wrinkle their nose, I say call in the fire department with their hoses!

I've had ghiardia which is a horrid thing to go thru, so I am careful what I eat and drink. I don't like our tap water, so I have a Brita pitcher, or I drink bottled water usually Dasani or Aquafina.

I don't like our tap water either...but we have a fridge that has water and ice in the door, and once the water is filtered through that, it's fine.

There was some Dateline or some other news magazine special on hose water and how it's not great to drink. Something about what hoses are made from I think.

The tap water here in Phoenix is nasty. It's so hard it leaves thick deposits on your faucets and showers and it tastes like chlorine and the other chemicals that the town puts in it to "purify" it. And they had too much fluoride in the water when I was growing up, so now I have dental fluorosis.

I've got a charcoal filter installed in my sink, and while it does help, it doesn't improve the taste that much. I do use the filtered water for cooking, but I drink bottled water.

The best bottled water I've had is Poland Spring, which they don't sell out here, unfortunately.

The tap water where I live is nasty. I use a filter, but I still didn't drink as much water as I should because I'd rather drink pop or something else that has actual flavor. I've been drinking fruit-flavored bottled water recently and really like it.
