Tap water may be good in some places, but definately not in Toronto (green occasionally in the summer due to algae)... i'm stuck sticking with bottled...

Moved out of London last year, tap water there was the best I've had. (Used to be disgusting - brown bits etc..). Out here it's very good, but doesn't taste quite so fresh.

I would have to say spring water all the way.

The tap water in New Jersey not only has some of the highest levels of lead in the US of A, but... it likes to change color. Now, I'm not too happy about that.

Most of all I wouldn't touch any of that filtered water... Why? .. Because brands like Dasani use NJ's tap water [Fairfield NJ, specifically... not too far away from a river commonly used as a chemical dumping ground] and think that filtering will get rid of everything... Plus through the filtering process they do not guarantee the water to be bacteria free.

Oh yeah... New Jersey's special blend.[/color] :twisted:

Here's a nice rant from someone about Dasani and their use of local tap water.

I prefer WET water. :wink:

I have a nice filtering system installed here, so the tap water is actually not too bad.

Depends on where I'm at. The tap water in the larger cities out here has all kinds of tastes, none of them fresh or pure. Usually a touch of chlorine or iron. So bottled.

Tap water over here is quite good overall.

and i just bought like 8 gallons of filtered water. 8O says it's from some kind of a spring of some sort. and it was reduced in price as well. i can't tell you the quandry i'm in right now- should i return those gallons of h2o (it's not dasani). must be the recent hype that forced them to reduce price. i guess some filtered is better than others? i don't know what hell i should do :?

yeah, no problem. now that i look at my statement, it's looking a little odd. i suppose that reverse could be in the vertical orientation as well. any physicists care to jump in regarding correct terminology (as i know speed is directionless, and velocity must have a direction in order to be velocity)?

just a note, i went the pm route, because i can look like a prick if i correct people (i don't want a prick reputation- nor am i jockeying to gain status (bug up my ass)- i ain't into that).

Nice soft tap water here in North Wales.....Plenty of it too :D . Bottled water has to be the biggest rip-off of all time

The tap water in my area is drinkable but to be on the safe side I go Spring.
