My tap water is awesome.... my hubby has a big jug that I fill up every morning for him with ice and water from the fridge (filtered)... but I only use the fridge water because it's already cold and doesn't melt the ice so fast.

I am doing better about drinking water but still can't gulp it down when I'm super thirsty... just sips. Just in case I never told y'all (lol), I got sick on water/ice when I was having chemo and ever since, I have had a hard time drinking it. It's taken 6 years and I'm finally able to drink it again.... and again, our tap water is great! Sparkly and clean and very refreshing!

Here is just stupid to buy bottled still water, so straight from the tap , the water is good and the last time I bought water it was fizzy and lightly flavoured  with rhubarb.

Ditto Susan's answer.  I buy bottled, mainly for the ballpark, then when it's gone I refill them from the tap and put them in the fridge.  As long as it's cold I don't care where it comes from. 

I have read all that stuff about kid's dental hygiene falling off due to the surge in families drinking bottled water.  There is fluoride in tap water.  Ours tastes fine.  Drink up.

Makes me no difference. When I do buy bottled I reuse the bottles over and over again.
