What source do you use for drinking water?

Bottled or tap?

I just now made my morning coffee with TAP water.

I never use tap water. It doesn't taste good. I've been drinking bottled water forever. NOBODY DRINKS TAP WATER. But this morning I was out of bottled and I said to myself, "Ah, what the heck..."

I hope I don't get sick.

hah sorry Pub. Its a brand name, they make water filters and purifiers. All different sizes and types. Mine is this big tankish type thing you fill the top reservoir with water and it filters through giving lovely fresh clean water. For cheaper than Evian!
You'd be sick if I described what the filter looks like when its changed!

Very worthwhile investments

I like to drink bottled water. I fill up the bottles with filtered water though because I drink about 8 bottles a day, and that would get bloody expensive!!!

No offense...but if I lived in CA, I wouldn't drink tap water either.
Tap water has only gotten worse in Seattle in the past 5 years. I still make my coffee with it each morning.

Tap at home- Oak Park, CA isn't all that bad as far as tap goes. At work, I drink the huge bottles of Arrowhead that they keep by my desk. However, if they don't want me to drink it, they shouldn't keep it in my office. This is not a storage facility.

Gawd, when I was in melbourne our work all agreed that tap water tasted much better than the bottled sort. So we started to refill our big bottles from the tap and the water company went bust later for the same reason. Melbourne water is fantastic.

As for over here in europe, both, although a water filter is a good idea.

They say that in london, the water has been drunk 8 times! ewww

I use Brita.

I know how you feel though, before I got the brita thing I would use bottled water all the time and if I would run out I would have to use tap water for my coffee and omg EW its soooo gross.

When I still lived at home with my parents I drank tap water, but now that I've gotten to college and found that the water tastes awful I go with good ole Aquafina.

We use one of those Pur filters now. It's okay, and cheaper than bottled.
