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.I've used tap water to make Kool Aid for years and I've never had this problem
...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.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.
