Bottled Water vs Tap Water Jan. 22nd, 2013 @ 07:01 PM Reply

Ewgh, tap water's so gross. And making Kool-Aid with it leaves this white residue on the top while the powder mixes. And there's all this controversy about the germs that dwell in tap water.

...but living on bottled water is just so prudish. Yes, it looks cleaner and I always see interviewees carrying them, but how would you respond if you were at a friend's house and saw their basement filled with Poland Springs.

When i was little i used to think they actually went to rivers and bottles water.
And recently it was dasani or someone else that was found out to be using regular tap water

The only bottled water I drink is the fizzy Perrier stuff which has lime or grapefruit mixed in.
I don't buy water that is identical to the water I get from my tap because I'm not a gym-attending iPhone-twiddling fuckbag.

Most bottled water is worse than tap water, so like, give it up right there sonny

But then I am fortunate to have really good tap water - it's just actually really nice

It depends on who bottles it. Dasani tastes like crap.

I've got a filter on my kitchen sink's tap (works very nicely might I add,) so I really don't have to worry about polluted water. Honestly, I drink tap water anyways to make sure I can stay immune to whatever is in it. Gotta test your immune system, right?

All water is gross. The only exception is glacier water. Even then it's only good if you drink it directly from the glaciers.

And making Kool-Aid with it leaves this white residue on the top while the powder mixes.

I don't make coolaid

And there's all this controversy about the germs that dwell in tap water.

If you don't expose yourself to bacteria, your body wont learn how to defend itself against said bacteria. That's a problem I have with people today, they're too overprotective, they feel like they have to wash their hands after handling things that a sick person has handled, they don't want any bacteria at all to get in, and then they wonder why they catch the cold so easily.

...but living on bottled water is just so prudish. Yes, it looks cleaner and I always see interviewees carrying them, but how would you respond if you were at a friend's house and saw their basement filled with Poland Springs.

Bottled water tastes fucking terrible.

In short, all water is shit, and exposing yourself to bacteria is a good thing.

Tap water is better for you then Bottled water. Tap water is regulated and tested for crap every few hours or so a day. Bottled water is tested when it first opens a plant and maybe once or twice a year.

I used to test water when I was selling Water Purification systems and the TDS in bottle water is way higher then tap water.

Try to get used to the taste of tap water. Or just put some in a glass or jug in the fridge and let all the chlorine evaporate from it might make you like the taste better.

I always felt like tap water was ok. But it usually tastes a little off. Mostly cause it's usually warm. I like bottled water because of its convenience, and because it's nice and cold.

It depends on who bottles it. Dasani tastes like crap.

In my experience, the quality of tap water depends heavily on where you live.

I used to live at the base of the Blue Ridge mountains in North Georiga/South Tennessee by the Tennessee River.
The tap water that came out of the faucet was damn near flawless - it didn't have a significant taste to it and was very clean.

I've recently, however; moved to Central Florida - and to summarize my thoughts. The tap water here taste like liquid assholes being pumped through my pipes. The sheer amount of Fluoride and Sulfur is insane. It tastes so god damn bad.

Personally, Me and the Mrs shelled out $100~ for one of those Water Coolers you see in office buildings - and we have 5-gallon water bottles delivered to our apartment. Best choice we've made, having good water is important for cooking or anything that involves water hitting your tongue.

For those of you looking for the freshest water that doesn't come from the North/South Pole - Well water is the cleanest shit you'll find. When you go into the mountains, in very rural areas. A lot of people up there don't have city plumbing, they have wells that pump water out of their back yard.

The water that those things pumps is clean as can be.

TL;DR Tap water sucks depending on where you live, fresh water is nice.

I prefer tap water. It's cheaper, and I don't like how half of tap water tastes.

I went to a eco-panel where they mentioned the "some bottled water is actually just tap water" fact. They also mentioned how tap water has stricter regulations than bottled water (especially if the bottled water is not sold over state lines). I believe this was due to different governing bodies regulating each one.

Or something like that...

I just released a short story about a Penguin who goes fishing. It's like Peter and the Wolf, but more self-critical.

My tap water sucks cock, if you leave a little in the sink (as in 2-4 ml) overnight, it'll all be white residue by the morning.

There's nothing in tap water that's going to hurt you assuming your supply lines are up to code or your water supply hasn't been tampered with. The main benefit of having a filtration system for your tap water is that it can make it taste less chlorinated, but it's not filtering any dangerous contaminants since your water is already potable before it even reaches your house.

Buy a water filter and then have "spring" water coming straight from the tap. Taste better than normal tap water and isn't as expensive in the long run as bottled water. Thank me later.

I drink tap water nearly everyday and have only bought bottled water once because it was hot i was on a bus and havent had water nearly all day and couldnt get it otherwise.

I dont like bottled water because why should i buy something i can get for free or cheaper in bigger amounts?

But i do understand why there is bottled water and can see other places where its probably usefull since not everyone have clean tap water.


I'm think i may have spelled wrong in my post but Tom Flup have not made an edit buttom so don´t blame me :D

I like Perrier as well, I can only drink that and not soda. I wish I could have it all the time, but it's too damn expensive.
