We drink bottled water with 8 litre bottles which cost us 1. The water here is high in calc, but certain parts you can get water from huge underground reservoirs through taps, but can't be bothered doing that.

For drinking, we put tap water through a Brita filter. When out and about, we take refilled bottles.

Any water as long as it has hops and barley in it

Apart from the Oestrogen in tap water, the stuff is perfect. I drink tap water as am too lazy to change but hey the amount of female hormones in tap water is quite high. I'm quite sure that the level of hormones will be enough to affect some people and not others etc....

You can sell anything with the right marketing technique. Manufacturers know this and the ad agencies pander to their whims.

Below are two links that confirm my long-held suspicions about bottled water which looks to have become little more than a fashion statement over the years......bit like the ubiquitous bottle of fizzy pop carried by so many young people now -

I come down on the side of tap water. That said I'm not at all happy that many areas have fluoride put into their drinking water without their consent.
The amount of Fluoride in drinking water may or may not be very harmful but I think it is appalling that governments allow/encourage our drinking water to be tampered without giving the public any choice. The argument that fluoridated water helps to prevent teeth decay is no excuse. In my opinion, if you want to look after your teeth, there is plenty of fluoride in tooth paste and it's up to parents to educate their children about this - and not to consume so much sugar...Sad

Tap water all the way. Like Focused though, I won't drink tap water from a public toilet.

The only bottled water we ever buy is if we want some sparkling stuff and can't afford champagne.

Bottled if were abroad.......Otherwise filtered tap water, our local water company seem to be rather keen on the chlorine, so much so that you can taste & smell it.

The best water that I ever tasted was from a burn that feeds one of the Speyside distilleries. There might have been a decomposing sheep a few yards upstream but it did taste wonderful.
